WHAT WE ATE...
McCluskey's Bistro is located inside the Knox Club. If you become a full member, you will receive 5% off your meals. I opted for the ‘Spaghetti Carbonara - bacon, egg, spring onion and cracked pepper with a hint of cream, finished with parmesan cheese ($21.00)’. The pasta sauce was just like homemade with an abundance of sliced bacon.
My dining companion decided to have a steak. He went with the ‘250g Prime Rump ($25.00)’ with pepper sauce and chips and vegetables. This dish is for those who want a hearty meal. The steak was tender and the vegetables were well cooked. Both dishes were better quality than your average pub meal.
