A local favourite offers a great, be it a little pricey pub food seven days a week

Review

Located opposite the Auburn train station in Auburn Village, the 19th century Geebung Polo Club pitches itself as one of the better local pubs with lovingly restored interiors and an extensive dining area.

Usually fairly quiet on weekdays, the Geebung comes alive on weekends where it attracts a diverse range of locals, particularly on a Sunday afternoon for its Sunday session.

As well as offering a strong range of boutique beers, the Geebung also offers one of the better pub menus in the area.

On a recent visit, we went for the basics: fish and chips (pictured top) and fried calamari. As per the pictures we were more than a little surprised at the presentation: fancy pub grub is how one reviewer on Urbanspoon describes it, and that’s a dead accurate description.

The fish was fresh and thoroughly enjoyable to eat. The calamari was cooked perfectly, and went down a treat.

Service was super quick, although you do have to order at the bar.

We can’t complain about the food at all, but the pricing was a little high for pub food, but that aside you do get what you pay for and I’d pay for it again.

3.5 stars out of 5

For: great food and atmosphere
Against: a little pricey for pub food
