Cnr Hyde and Napier Streets
We've been visiting the Station Hotel in Footscray for a few years now and, living up to its fine reputation under the helm of Sean Donovan (now also of Wayside Inn in South Melbourne), it has never disappointed. Whether in the lovely dining room or watching the footy in the bar, the atmosphere, service and food has been consistently excellent.
There is a famously impressive meat selection here - it seems a crime not to have a steak. (Maybe it's just in our minds, but we swear that now and then we can smell meeeaty aromas as we pass by). Despite a lucklustre promise to stop eating too much - we had to make exceptions for birthday celebrations right?!
So, we celebrated a birthday or two with a delicious Wagyu X Holstein rostbiff steak - cooked to perfection and accompanied with simultaneously crisp and soft chips.
