Pub food at its finest!

We were referred to this lil pub across from our hotel by a few co workers. Sherlock Homles located in the lower floor of its building and if you don't pay attention you'll walk right past it. We ventured here on a Monday Night after work. We ventured down the stairs to a huge pub with lots of... read more

We have been waiting for our meals for over an hour. And it's a quiet Monday evening. Luckily we had an outstanding lunch and are not hungry

Wow what a find, an absolute pearl in the oyster of Collins Street. An eclectic range of English beers, fantastic service and excellent food. All this and the atmosphere and décor of a English pub. The couple we dined with were there the night before and were extremely keen to return to this outstanding Inn.

An initial fairly timid complaint (after waiting almost an hour for our main course) was met with direct aggression, very much in the Basil style although this was from a female version of same. The food when it did eventually arrive was ok (not great but ok). If you've got time to spare, (and I mean a great deal of... More

This is a very quaint little bar that unfortunately we didn't discover until the last night of our stay. It's a downstairs bar and immediately made us feel like we were at the local pub in England. It's beautifully decorated in a traditionally English style and has an incredible variety of beers both on tap and bottled. While we didn't... More

A nice English Pub in the heart of Melbourne. On this occasion I just had a drink. For what I paid it was a bit pricey, but you expect that in Melbourne. Available is food, but overall a relaxing atmosphere with English Beers that are available. I had a great time.

Had the lambs fry, a chicken schnitzel and the fish and chips. Average price for the CBD. Good size meals and well cooked. Nice atmosphere in the pub.
