You won’t find any pokies at Brighton’s eating and drinking emporium. What you will find is no less than six dining areas, where you can knock back some oysters and bubbles, yell at the footy, or do some relatively fine dining. This used to be the Hotel Central in the 1960s. Now it's a whitewashed behemoth, with a brightly tiled bar, a few private dining rooms (we like the one that looks like a library) and a huge outdoor courtyard. There’s poutine (chips doused in gravy and cheese) and soft steamed buns filled with crisp pork, hoi sin sauce, and coriander. They also do classic counter meals including a burger and a fat chicken parma that will give you a run for your money.
