Get down for the final week of Tricky Wicket Malvern!!
Our first pilot site will conclude this Sunday night.

We have relished in the greeting of cricket enthusiasts and sporting lovers from across Melbourne and beyond to our beloved venue.

Tricky Wicket may be closing the doors on our Pilot site, but we are certainly not ‘out’ of the hospitality game. We are working hard to bring Tricky Wicket 2.0 to you in a new location, which will be a ‘hit-for-six’ experience.

So with that, it’s not goodbye forever, it’s just goodbye for now.

Our final day of operation is 2 June, closing at 7pm. Come down to celebrate the closing of a chapter with great food and plenty of batting fun!

HOLIDAY TRADING: Closed January 3 - 7. Re-opening January 10th with normal trading hours.

At Tricky Wicket we celebrate good food and drinks just as much as a good batsman! Our menu carefully crafted with the influence of the biggest cricket nations. Designed to share it with your friends while enjoying a new dimension of cricket.

“Keep it simple, keep it fresh, keep it delicious!”



Bringing a variety of cuisines together for a modern culinary journey, our menu pays homage to the most popular local dishes from across the cricket nations. From New Zealand lamb, South African beef to British pies, Australian prawns and Indian curry, there is something for everyone. With small plates to big sharing dishes of the finest quality, you will be spoiled for choice no matter if you’re hungry for a casual weekday dinner or a Saturday brunch with friends. Our menu also caters for our vegetarian and vegan friends as equally as it does for our carnivores. As a brand, we aim to establish Tricky Wicket first and foremost as a destination to dine, meet, socialise and experience culture, rather than just an entertainment venue.

Our menu will take you on a journey through the cricket nations with local highlights paired with the signature dishes from Australia, India, New Zealand, South Africa, England and Pakistan and more. Authentic classics mixed with modern twists on some of the most amazing items on these nation’s culinary landscape.

From small plates to big sharing dishes our menu spoils you and your friends and is great for big groups for all occasions. No matter if you’re after a casual weekday dinner or a Saturday boozy brunch while batting with friends and strangers.
