The Nixon Hotel, Docklands

Contrary to the reviews below, we actually had a rather wonderful experience at The Nixon using our voucher. Having witnessed how crowded the place can become when there's a footy match going on across the road, we booked ourselves in for a week night dinner. It also meant that we easily found free street parking around the corner.

We chose traditional pub fares like a burger with the lot, fish and chips and steak. It was all very good and the portions were very generous. We weren't exactly expecting to be waited on hand and foot and found the service to be quite satisfactory. There were only one waitress and a manager on duty but that was understandable given that there were only 5 occupied tables. If we needed something and the waitress was serving another customer at the bar, then one of us simply headed over to ask for it and she offered to bring it over to the table. At the end of the meal, our voucher was accepted without any trouble or fuss, and we left happy.
