We went looking for a pub that could host a family gathering which covered the age range 3 through to70. We looked at others which claimed to be family friendly before visiting the Marryatville. We are glad that we chose to go there. There is a large undercover playground adjacent to what was probably the beer garden in an earlier life of the hotel. The food was good, the service was excellent and the kids had a good time too, which left the adults much less stressed. One of our party is a Salt & Pepper Squid aficionado - she was very happy with her meal. The 'Ville Burger is big and probably not good for the calorie count - but it was good! If you should order the Trio of Gelati for dessert, be prepared for a very big serve of gelati.
