ONE of the region’s best not-so-well kept dining secrets, the Meringandan Hotel, is as popular as ever among Toowoomba residents.

The 20-minute drive from Toowoomba was worth it for residents who voted the pub one of their favourite restaurants in The Chronicle’s recent online poll.

WITH a juicy one kilogram steak on the menu, the Meringandan Hotel takes its reputation for serving up the biggest and best pub grub across the Darling Downs seriously.

The mammoth piece of meat takes up an entire plate – with a separate plate just for sides – and is one of the drawcards of the iconic Toowoomba watering hole.

Another is the scenery, with the option of dining in the beer garden next to a paddock of camels, goats and chickens.

Toowoomba’s upmarket dining scene might be expanding but the popularity of the Meringandan Hotel and its generous portions proves there is still a hunger for old-fashioned pub fare.

Heather and Geoffrey Murphy have owned the hotel for 15 years and put its success down to a good honest feed.
