Builders Arms Hotel

Entertainment & Leisure, The Dressing Room

A recent visit to the Builders Arms Hotel on Gertrude Street Fitzroy had us running to our keyboard to share this place with you!

fvLE8lkhEjdMfAThink casual and homely, yet stylish. We LOVED the vibe we got as soon as we walked in, it was warm and welcoming.

The tricky part was deciding what to order, wanting to order everything!!! Over all everything we did try was satisfying,

I would easily order it all again! Portion sizes for individual and share plates were all reasonable (didn’t leave hungry).

What we recommend to try:

  • Crispy pork and school prawns
  • Chickpea salad, marinated carrot, green chilli and shanklish
  • Red duck curry
  • Peppered Fillet steak, potato puree
  • Roasted potatoes, garlic
  • House chips

Potatoes_LR Tulip-Shadow_LR1One of the master chefs behind the dishes at the Builders Arms Hotel is Andrew Mc Connell. He  has also managed to impress us on a visit to Golden Fields (another great place we recommend) where he also is to credit for the amazing dishes there. Other restaurants he is linked to that you may have heard of include Cumulus Inc and Cutler & Co.  Everything he touches turns to gold 😉
