Time Out says
Venture behind the Newmarket's red brick facade for modern pub grub, build-your-own charcuterie and more
Away from the hustle and bustle of St Kilda's foreshore, the Newmarket Hotel is serving classic and more contemporary pub grub, wood-fired pizzas, bar snacks and refreshing drinks.
Start off your Newmarket feast with a build-your-own charcuterie board; pick your base (brioche, oat crackers or flat bread), nibbles (olives, dips or sun dried tomatoes), creamy cheeses, cured meats and get ready for a snack party.
If you're after something a little heartier chef Christian Abbot (who was a finalist on the UK’s Master Chef) has devised a menu that elevates counter meals to the next level. He's firing up Gippsland eye fillet and smoked pork shoulder on the grill, but try the signature Newmarket burger and parmas too for a classic pub experience.
All year round, the courtyard is also great spot for a post-beach drink, so pull up a seat and join the locals at this backstreet pub to check out St Kilda's hidden gem.
