Sunday lunch at the Apollonian

The smell of roasting lamb is always enough to get this Kiwi girl’s mouth watering.  I love a good Sunday roast at any time (lamb, pork, beef…I’m not that fussy) but never more than when someone else is cooking it!

And that’s exactly what they do at the Apollonian Hotel, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.  It’s usually pork or beef, spit-roasted and served with hot roast potatoes, salad and damper (that uniquely Australian scone-like bread). Just 20 minutes from the beaches of Noosa, the Apollonian is a lovely low-set place with a big shady verandah running along the front.

My daughter and I headed there when I was researching Great Australian Pubs, and enjoyed it immensely. Smaller kids have a special menu, and be warned: they will need to leave room for dessert. It’s called ‘Frog in the Lake’,  green jelly and ice-cream with a Freddo frog. After a hearty lunch – whether it’s the weekend or not – walk it off with a stroll down the street to the shores of Lake Cootharaba at Boreen Point.

The Apollonian is this week’s Pub of the Week on the Tourism Queensland blog, and has an interesting history. If you’re there on Sunday afternoon there’s live music till 4pm.

    Roast lamb for dinner at our place tonight, Lee – you’d be most welcome!

      Thanks Penny! Always love dinner invitations, especially if roast lamb is involved…I can almost smell it from here. Is there mint sauce too?
