What a great find lovely Irish Pub.

After our last experience at an Irish Pub with the same friend we were hoping for a much better experience . Well I must say what a gem The Quiet Man is. Sunday lunch the pub was warm and welcoming even with the dark wood paneling it was a light bright pub. I chose the Dublin Brewery's Beef and... read more

Fantastic irish pub with lots of genuine irish folk behind the bar serving you. Great friendly service with an inviting smile. Unfortunately the food in the restaurant was very disappointing. I had the shepherds pie and it was disgustingly heavy on the gravox. Loads of potatoes on offer though, with mash and fries served.

Went here for dinner with some mate, ordered mains and had to wait an hour for them to come out even though they weren't very busy, the waitress forget our drinks and the meals were pretty average.

We have been frequenting The Quiet Man for almost as long as we've lived in Flemington - 24 years! - and never before have we been so bitterly disappointed with the meals. All of our meals were the worst, THE WORST, ever. Each and every one was salty to the point of inedibility, and adding to that, the shepherd's pie... More

This pub is an Irish Pub in Flemington, suburb of Melbourne and what a wonderful homey pub to go too. We have been here few years ago. The attention one receives from the Irish girls who served up our meal were full of personality too. There was a group of people from Ireland on tour doing their Irish dancing whilst... More

I visit this pub often for lunch and dinner. The food is typically Irish when possible so an abundance of vegetables and potato. The food is cooked fresh so sometimes there can be a wait if it is busy. Time for a pint of Guiness. The serving staff are always Irish which adds to the atmosphere. The prices for this... More

We went for a Wednesday lunch and was surprised at how busy the restaurant and bar was. We were told the bar was built in Ireland and shipped out, the inside of the place certainly looks authentic Irish. The food was excellent, well presented and with reasonable quantities to satisfy three hungry diners (none of this stupid haute cuisine lettuce... More

We visited The Quiet Man as a group with four adults and a toddler. We arrived a bit early for lunch and waited for someone to arrive - another couple of people were also waiting. The staff member arrived while talking on the phone. He completely ignored everyone who was waiting to be seated. I don't expect people to drop... More
