Winter is here; it’s cold, it’s wet and it’s the perfect time to escape the winter blues to welcome sunny, warm Egypt… right here in Geelong. Lucky for you, you can get your taste of Egypt at the family-owned Sphinx, a premier venue for food and entertainment.
With an exterior you can’t miss, The Sphinx Hotel is like nothing else in the region, especially with Pharaohs Bistro. Offering both indoor and outdoor dining, the menu boasts some old favourites, classics and something a bit special for you to treat yourself – plus an all new sports bar!
Winter time and sports go hand in hand when it comes to heading out; you want to be somewhere dry, comfortable, have access to great food and great beer, as well as be right amongst the sporting action.
Well with the Sphinx Sports Bar, you are guaranteed all those things, especially with their brand new seven square metre TV; you won’t miss a single goal. Open every day, you can also have a bet on the races with the TAB or watch your favourite sporting event on the two giant screens whilst enjoying a meal (hello express $10 lunches) and having a drink!
If you’re not really into sport and are just wanting to escape the winter chill, The Sphinx offer an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner seven days a week, as well as daily specials and kids meals. The menu boasts a range of dishes, including calamari and oysters to kick off your dining experience, along with a variety of mains. We’ve got our eye on the Veggie Filo with sweet potato mash with greens and the Chicken Fillet Mignon, complete with stir-fry vegetables and plum sauce! Yum!

You won’t find specials like this anywhere!
The Sphinx also offer Steak Night on Wednesdays from $18, where you can choose between a Porterhouse and a Scotch Fillet, with Schnitzel Night on Thursdays from $14. Here you can choose from chicken or veal and have as is or turn it into a Parmi with a variety of toppings available.
