The low-key interior of the Hawthorn Hotel belies the popularity of this pub, a favoured haunt of uni students and locals. The menu is trad-pub, but the wine list offers a well-curated array of Australian and NZ varieties. Live music (flavour: '80s – recent shows include Mark Seymour and Brian Mannix) and comedy round out the appeal.
