The grandly titled Little Creatures Dining Hall doesn't disguise its true nature – here, it is all about beer. Originally the Fitzroy stables, this barn-like building has been converted into, well, a beer barn. It is a huge but convivial space, with long wooden tables, large comfy booths and industrial fittings. The whole package is essentially designed to showcase the Little Creatures beers and their Pipsqueak cider while keeping tummies satisfied with some robust snacks. All in all it makes for a happy, albeit noisy, environment.
There's a decent selection of pub-type fare that's been geared towards soaking up a few ales. The open kitchen at the back does a fair trade in the basics – steak and onion pie with peas and mash, nachos and pizza – as well as dishes such as grilled kangaroo with tomato chutney, or chilli and tomato mussels. There are a few grazing plates to share if you're just feeling a mite peckish. Beers come in three sizes (pony, little and not so little), and there are some well-priced Australian wines to choose from. The bottle shop at the front has takeaway wines and beer so you can take a little souvenir of your dining hall experience home with you.
