Fox in the Corn

4 Droop Street
VIC 3011

After meaning to visit Fox in the Corn since it opened about a year ago we finally made it down on an early Autumn Friday evening. The street frontage is fairly unobtrusive, with subtle branding on the windows.

Inside there are a combination of wooden booths along with some longer timber tables in the center.

The bar at the back features a pump with 8 craft beers on offer and views into the kitchen. The beer menu featured many more ales.The food menu featured a range of pasta which can be served with a variety of sauces, mix and match style.

We shared some of the mixed local Mount Zero olives as an entrée. This ended up being a good call as our mains ended up taking around 45 minutes to arrive.

The fresh cherry tomato with buffalo mozzarella, basil and olive oil with the linguine which lived up to expectations.

I had the oven roasted vegetables on linguine with napoli sauce, panko and parsley. The roasted veggies and sauce combined to deliver a punch of rich organic flavours.

The long wait for our meals cast a shadow over our experience at Fox in the Corn, but the rest of the service was friendly and helpful. The mains start at under $20 for a filling dish and the beers were ranged from $8. The environment was quite noisy on a Friday evening and it would be a good to spot to dine with a group when it is lively.

Anglesea Golf Club

1 Golf Links Road
VIC 3230

The stroll from town up to the golf club on a summer was pleasant and once we were alongside and then within the grounds the famous local fauna was on view.

We made our way to the Bistro and opted for a table outside rather than in the busy dining room. The main menu covered a classic club dishes, pasta and salads, with specials on the chalk board. I timed the trip to the counter badly and had a bit of a wait and that meant a bit of a wait for our meals to. the view from the outdoor deck did make the time pass more quickly.

We asked for the swordfish with the sauce on the side, so I'm not sure how it would normally be plated. The pan seared fish was small and a bit over in our opinion, the serves of potatoes snow peas and asparagus were also on the petite side.

As I was near the coast, I couldn't help choosing the Fish and Chips. The three pieces of fish were crisply battered, the fries good and the salad fresh.

The food came to just under $50 and the wait staff were friendly although we did have quite a wait for our food. The location, views and fauna were the highlights of the visit, we wandered past this fellow on the way out....

Anglesea Hotel

24 McMahon Avenue
VIC 3230

We made it to the Anglesea Hotel on a Friday summers evening just before they stopped serving food at 8:30. We found a table outside, rather than in the dated feeling interior dining area.

We swiftly scanned the menu featuring plenty of standard dishes and the specials before ordering at the counter.

The seafood linguine did feature some decent mussels, prawns and scallops but the creamy tomato sauce was a miss.

I stuck to a basic dish of chicken schnitzel with chips and salad which was well executed. The sauce was fortunately contained as I'd chosen poorly and it didn't suit the dish.

Both mains were in the mid twenty dollar range. The service was fine but I don't think we'd go out of our way to rush back.
