I was heading for Flinders Street Station with a couple of friends following a business meeting and we were looking for somewhere for a quiet drink where we could discuss the next steps. I hadn’t been in Young and Jacksons for years and my memories were of a crowded and noisy pub, but my colleagues knew better, and the upstairs... More

We were amazed last night re the rudeness of the barman ….. after placing our orders including a glass of reisling we tasted it & said the reisling was far too sweet. The bar attendant then went on & on about how every reisling is sweet even though we said most Australians reislings are not. We ended up having to... More

Very iconic location nead Flinder Street Station, right in heart of city. Always means its pretty busy, but worth a look and a few drinks. Good atmosphere and there's quite a few bars spread over a few levels. Service always good and good range of beers on tap.

This pub has existed for ever, opposite the Flinders St Rail Station it's busy, busy, busy especially lunch and just after work finish - 5.00pm. My first visit there was in 1968 and have been back quite a number of times since then. My Dad used to drink there in the days when the pubs would close at 6.00 O'clock,... More

After catching the train back into Flinders street we walked straight across the road to Young and Jacksons for a quick drink before going out for dinner . The place was nearly full it was quiet noisy and actually it was a bit hard to hear you can get quick snacks and sharing platters or pub meal from Parma to... More

Had the fish and Chips. Very tasty. And try their Naked Pale Beer, a foggy pale with a hint of bananas, don't ask me why... Very good.

A Melbourne staple featuring "Chloe" on the second floor. A must see when visiting Melbourne. Friendly staff and average food. A pint of microbrew will run you $11 so bring your wallet. Directly across the street from the Dlinders Street Station in the CBD.

Popped in for lunch. They have a good selection of beer on tap and the parma that I ordered was very decent. Service was more efficient than friendly.
