Escape the cold at The Sporting Globe Bar & Grill

Located at the top end of Geelong’s inner CBD, The Sporting Globe Bar & Grill is Australia’s most loved sports bar and grill synonymous with great food in a casual bar environment and sporting entertainment. While summer is long gone and the winter chill is well and truly upon us, the Sporting Globe is keeping things cosy with their new menu launch!
Dedicated to good food, the team have introduced new main menu items that are guaranteed to warm the soul. First up, they’ve got the cheeseburger loaded fries, complete with beef burger patty, melted cheese, diced pickles and fan favourite, the TSG Trophy mayo… pair this with a pint of your favourite brew and it’s sure to cure your winter ails. If you’re looking for something a little heartier, you can’t go past the beauty that is the MVP parma with a pot. Simple is good, but here the simple parma just got ten times better with their new Mac ‘N’ Cheese parma! Taking the cake for perfect winter pairing, this one starts with a hand-crumbed chicken breast, loaded with Hickory Smoked BBQ sauce, mac and cheese balls, along with more cheese and ranch sauce. The elegance, the guilty pleasure—the decadence! This addition is an absolute treat!
While it’s customary to find a meat focused menu at a bar and grill venue, The Sporting Globe are taking note of their patrons’ increasing demands for specific dietary needs with the addition of two vegan, meat alternative options. Say hello to ‘The I Can’t Believe It’s Not Beef’ burger which is a delicious option for vegans and vegetarians, alongside their ‘Vegan Bites’ which are exactly like their famous Boneless chicken bites and are delicious with spicy buffalo sauce and veganaise! For the vegetarians, you can also bulk up your meal with their house roasted root vegetables or creamy garlic mashed potato! Healthy, fresh and easily just as delicious as a char-grilled steak.
If you’re now thinking about a char-grilled steak, the re-vamped Tuesday offer from The Sporting Globe team sees their six-star rated, grass-fed rump, porterhouse and eye fillet steaks available HALF-PRICE all day! Paired with a pint of tap beer or cider for half-price also, this is the ultimate dinner before a cheap-Tuesday movie across the road.
Winter is the get-out-of-jail-free season when it comes to tucking into indulgent old-school desserts, and lucky for us, The Sporting Globe have a whole selection to take comfort in. Take a seat in the welcoming clad confines of the venue and order the light but rich sticky-date pudding with warm butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream. It breaks apart like soft cake, releasing wafts of that sweet, dark aroma and it the ultimate winter comfort food. If you’re not into pudding, no sweat. They also have the warm choc fudge brownie, smothered in house made chocolate ganache, topped with dehydrated raspberries and chocolate shavings
Further satisfy your sweet tooth with the brand-new Ferrero Nutella Waffle, toasted Belgian waffles, with Ferrero Rocher ice cream, crisp wafers, crushed hazelnuts, sliced strawberries, a warm Nutella sauce & Ferrero Rocher pieces. Or go all out with their new OREO® cheesecake brownie, with OREO® cheesecake filling, sandwiched between two housemade brownie pieces, topped with crushed OREO®’s & chocolate ganache, served on top of cream.
If you really want to take your winter coziness to the next level, they’ve also got the TSG TRIFECTA. This is a perfect choice for dessert (and for the indecisive sweet tooth), as it features the delicious choc fudge brownie with cream, mini OREO® cheesecake brownie sandwich and Ferrero Nutella waffle with Ferrero Rocher ice cream. It’s the best of everything!
Hot tip; whether you’re dining with a crew or you just really like dessert, pop in on a Friday for their ‘Double Dessert Fridays’, where you can get two desserts for the price of one! This is guaranteed to warm you up inside and out.
Whether you’re there for lunch, dinner, dessert or just watching the World Cup with a few brews, Geelong’s Sporting Globe is the perfect place to eat, drink and catch a game this winter.
