Despite my pushing for the Maccas on the corner, we instead chose to eat at the Town Green Inn. With dinner from 5:30pm, the view of the sunset over the Hastings and only a short stroll around the corner to the theatre, it was the best spot to settle for a couple of hours.
From the woodfired pizza menu we chose the 'Lighthouse' and one of the two specials.
The 'Lighthouse' ($24) was topped with prawns, prosciutto, basil, roma tomatoes and bocconcini. The base was perfectly cooked, with a nice classic crust, not too thin with a nice puffy edge.
The special we chose was topped with cajun chicken, potato, onion, snowpeas and capsicum drizzled with sweet chilli sauce.
Although unsure of how potato would go on a pizza, the slices were thin and added a lovely texture and creaminess to the topping and made it feel more like a 'winter' pizza. Awesome!
We also tried the 300g Black Angus Sirloin ($29.50) served with mash, vegies, onion jam and red wine jus. The super crunchy sweet potato slivers on top were a hit.
The Grilled Salmon Fillet ($26.50) served on a potato, chorizo, rocket and capsicum salad with a tomato and avocado salsa.
After a few drinks and a couple of hours, the friday night rush was starting and bar was filling up with a mix of theatre goers, families and after work groups. It is certainly a popular place if your after a large range of meals for good value, and a comfy wicker chair to settle in.
