Pubs & bars
The Mallow is a cosy and friendly local pub, serving up Ballarat’s largest range of Independent beers on tap (as well as classic Melbourne Bitter) and a wine list full of tasty local drops.
The kitchen is open five nights a week (closed Monday and Tuesday), and lunches are available from Friday to Sunday. The menu consists of all the pub classics, plus more gastropub style dishes. The same menu is available in both the bar and the dining room.
Call ahead for a table in the dining room, where you can sit back, relax, and let the staff serve you. If you like things a little more casual, pull up a bar stool or a seat in one of the front rooms where you can order your meals and drinks at the bar.
In winter there are open fires to keep you warm, and you can now enjoy the outdoors all year round in the courtyard, which boasts a huge wood fireplace and pool table.
The pub is open until 1:00am on Friday and Saturday nights, low lights, great soundtrack, huge craft beer and wine selection. In the warmer months you can bask in the sunny Yard Bar.
