Great pub tucked away.

Lovely pub tucked away downstairs. Employs friendly staff who make you feel very welcome, the landlady was very helpful with suggestions re Melbourne. Beer was good as was the atmosphere.

My partner and I had dinner at this cosy, warm and casual venue early on a Friday night and felt immediately welcome. We found the food to be okay, some dishes are better than others; a great range of traditional English dishes are available. Extensive wine menu and a range of English ales available on tap. Worth checking out.

Colleagues and I had visited this pub/restaurant last week and thought it was worthy to return this week for a friends 'going away' lunch. The staff are friendly and attentive. The menu is quite good with an additional 'specials' board offering creative Parmas $24, to steak $35, roasts, green curry, pasta, fish pies and of course, most served with chips... More

We have visited this pub many times since its opening. Love heading to the basement and the feel the decor provides- yes,it's cheesy to some degree but just go with it. Good menu that catered for all tastes and reasonably priced. Nice range of beers and wines.

He got a regular beer with Rib eye streak, he was upset there was no lamb and I ordered for crunchy chicken salad We loved the food and the hospitality... Highly... More

Went to Melbourne for holiday. Found this great pub around the corner from where we stayed. The food was fantastic and the bar staff were so friendly. Great location. Will definitely visit again

Standard English pub grub with some traditional favourites (lambs fry and bacon, for example). Atmospheric. Food average but plentiful. Ok for a midweek meal.

Quiet - really nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Good beer and great barmaid.
