We've been to the Napier Hotel a few times. I'd characterise it as a grungy gastro pub. What I love about the Napier is its accessibility. Appropriate for the area, the dress code is non-existent (we went straight from the local pool), the beer is plentiful, and the prices sharp. It could probably do with a bit of a spruce up but hey, it's a pub.
I wanted to blog about one menu item, because it's (even by my standards) ridiculous. 'The Bogan Burger' is a triumph of indulgence over sanity. It's twice as big as my mouth due to the following ingredients: steak, chicken schnitzel, caramelised onions, cheese, pineapple, beetroot, egg, potato cake, bacon, lettuce, tomato with wedges and salad. I like it for the challenge but I have to admit, mixing steak, schnitzel and a potato cake is a stretch. For $20, it's good value if you add up the ingredients, but sometimes value is not everything.
