The menu at Robson’s is split into sections of lighter eats, boards, salads, pub meals, burgers and pizzas. The on the lighter end of the spectrum, the Ducking Good spring rolls are ideal for a fuss-free lunch. The golden scrolls are filled with spicy barbecue pulled duck and served with a Japanese dipping mayo and fluffy chips. If you're a seafood fan, the pint of crispy panko prawns is just the ticket. These are plump, golden and sweet and served with fries and a slightly unusual garlicky skordalia (a Greek-style potato dip).
The San Diego catch of the day is fried in beer batter and is a good pub grub choice, but it's the burgers here that tick all the boxes. Thor's burger is made up of a juicy 100% beef burger patty with smoky bacon, mature cheddar, braised onions and a homemade Jack Daniels BBQ sauce. It's rib-stickingly good and is the perfect beer accompaniment. As for desserts - if you have any space left - go for a Nutella milkshake.
Robson’s Real Beer is proudly on display here. The bar is equipped with draught taps of all their brews and they also offer a nifty beer tasting flight for those who are unsure. For others, there’s a few easy-drinking wines like Pierre Jourdan Tranquille, or look to the list of refreshing cocktails.
Friendly but a little unsure.
The eatery is housed inside the brewery, which lends it a cool industrial feel. The hum of the beer tanks, wooden tables and benches and exposed brick offer extra ambience to the space. Be sure to nab a table outside in the shade on hot and humid days, as the interior doesn’t have any air-conditioning.
They have great weekday specials as well as live music and trivia quizzes on certain evenings. Check out their Facebook page for updates.
