Called in for a drink on Tuesday 17th February while we decided where to go for a meal. The pub was busy with people having a drink after work or a meal before going out for the evening. Meals were being served which looked ok but when we spotted gammon and chips on the specials board we decided to stay... More

I had dinner on 19 February with three local friends. The placed was fairly crowded both inside and at the outside tables, but we found a table for four next to the downstairs fireplace. After two quit nice pints, we order food. One ordered the salmon, another the chicken parma ($23) and the third the Lancashire Hotpot ($20). No one... More

Passing through was craving beef and the pub did the trick. The food was amazing and very proper. The staff had great well rounded recommendations for food and the beers definitely represented melbourne very well. Cheers

Good range of beers on tap and three levels of good pub to enjoy them on. I ordered the ploughmans platter for 2 at $35. Not impressed with what came. $10 worth of food at best. A small handful of shop bought packet salad, a dry cob of bread, dry ham, a cut up apple, 7 pickled onions and a... More

We enjoyed a Lamb Hotpot at this Pub so much we went back for a meal a few nights later to savour the Bangers and Mash for hubby, and a Shepherd's Pie for me. Good hearty food in pleasant surroundings.

Stopped by for some pub food and wasn't disappointed. Good food at reasonable prices - good portion size. Drinks weren't that exorbitant either. If you're looking for a taste of England in Melbourne, this is your place.
