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.

This place models itself on "British Pubs" which it manages to do, without overdoing as most pretend Irish ("plastic Paddy") pubs in Aus do. They had four English beers on, all of which were well kept, all of which were served too bloody cold! Aussies, you do not HAVE to serve bitter ice cold you know. We didn't eat there... More

Awesome place for a nice quiet beer on a Monday night. It was nice to find a well poured Guinness.. The pub had plenty of nice beers to chose from.. I didn't eat here though the menu looked nice and reasonably priced

We stopped by the Elephant and Wheelbarrow British pub prior to seeing a show at the nearby Majesty's Theatre. It was pretty packed for a Saturday night (because heaps of people after the races popped by for dinner). It has a nice authentic British pub feel to it, and is pretty big (2 levels). There is a nice selection of... More

Food was plentiful as of good quality, large range of beers and ciders on tap (Though they were out of the Speckled Hen). Staff could have been a bit friendlier to a out-of-towner who os not up to speed on the drink sizes used in Victoria.
