I went two nights in a row. Service is prompt and pleasant. Food is abundant. Prices are very reasonable. I had a bar roast (plenty big enough) and a red wine for $21 on the first night and a BLT with chips and a red wine for $19 on the second night. Packed out both nights, so get there early..

Great meal , on Thursday and Friday they have happy hours from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm. The young lady from the bar is very rude , need a course of customer service. The locals go there other than the rude lady from the bar , this place rocks!!!!

Visited this hotel because of all the great reviews and it lived up to expectations. Visited for a quick lunch. The meal was good, inexpensive and the service excellent. Will visit again when in Hobart and I highly recommend.

This is a fantastic pub, full of locals but very welcoming. Food is really reasonable price and large portions. Beer is about 20% cheaper than down by the water yet the location of this pub is only a 10 min walk and if your staying in the city it is even closer. We went back a number of times.

I know I am going to sound like the odd one out (based on other recent reviews), but .... - very chewy steak - poor quality rump to begin with, then not cooked very well ( both the Shamrock 500g rump and 200g special) - very watery Diane sauce - mashed pumpkin pre-peppered with table pepper (who does that ?)...

We spent a couple of very enjoyable hours over a late lunch. Friendly service and the regulars were quick to point out the specials boards. If I were picky, and I am, I'd say I was disappointed that the potato and leek soup twas creamed and flavour-free (it could have said this on the menu) and the Beef and Guiness... More

We came across the Shamrock as we were staying nearby. The staff are very friendly and the pub food was very good value. Many other places in Hobart we found expensive for what you get, you certainly cant complain about $10-$14 roasts, steak and schnitzel. If you are very hungry go for the schnitzel as they are huge and you... More

Great service from the moment we entered. We last visited the hotel in 2012 and it still didn't disappoint. The food is definitely the cheapest around and the quality didn't suffer from the price. Food was fresh and came fast to the table our meals cost between 10-12 dollars. Would recommend trying for yourself we were very happy customers!
