We’ve recently returned to Hobart from a brief but eventful trip to Melbourne. We stayed with the Rydges Hotels and Resorts chain at their property on Swanston Street in Carlton, and truly had the most perfect few days. So when we arrived back in Hobart, we decided to give the local version of Rydges the once-over, and booked a table at their Manor Grill Restaurant in Argyle Street.

New Menu at Rydges Hobart

After a short closure for a kitchen revamp, Rydges Hobart had just launched their new winter dinner menu in the Manor Grill Restaurant. We timed our visit beautifully, because we’ve heard it’s the best ever! We cleaned all our plates, so who are we to argue?

We usually aim to sample a cross-section from the menu when we’re dining out in Tasmania, and this occasion was no different. You probably wouldn’t call the menu at Manor Grill Restaurant an extensive one. However, we found plenty to choose and have plans to try other options during our next visit.

Our dish of the night was awarded to dessert. Who could resist a gooey Belgian chocolate caramel tart with peanut butter ice-cream and sesame crisp? The scorched meringue on the side was a very nice touch indeed. This one was perfect for sharing, but there’s always a lot of that at our table!
