Ball Court Hotel in Sunbury, Victoria, re-opened on 11th November, following a light renovation by new operators, Australian Venue Co. Constructed in the 1870s, the pub is the only remaining 19th-century hotel in Sunbury and it maintains its characteristic corner frontage.
The historic suburban pub currently offers a sports bar, indoor and outdoor dining and a bottleshop. Australian Venue Co has refreshed the pub to improve the flow of the venue and create a better experience for guests with new and additional furniture, fresh paint, new carpet and landscaping.
The Ball Court is the ideal destination for everyone – perfect for family outings, work lunches, group dinners, date nights and mid-week meals.
The menu has also had a refresh and will offer a good quality, affordable dining experience. All the pub classics will be included alongside burgers, pizzas, pastas, snacks and desserts. Kids will not be forgotten, with their own $10 menu that will come with a drink, with the option to add vanilla ice cream and topping for $2.
The Festive Feast menu will be ideal for groups of 20–150 with a three-course menu for $59pp.
The Sports Bar will be the destination for sports lovers, with live sports played on plasma screens, a pool table and TAB facilities.
Locals will be pleased to hear that a range of weekly specials will also be on offer, including:
• Monday, all day – $15 porterhouse, chips and salad
• Wednesday, all day – $15 parma and pot or $19.50 special parma and pot (think
Hawaiian, Italian, Mexican)
• Mon–Thurs, 12pm–4pm – Seniors’ menu: two courses $14 or three courses $16
Guests will be able to enjoy live entertainment every Friday from 7.30pm until late on the Deck and on Sundays 3pm–5.30pm in the Wine Bar with a rotation of local soloists and acoustic duos.
Australian Venue Co CEO Paul Waterson is thrilled to add another Victorian venue to the growing pub portfolio.
