This bar/restaurant was directly opposite our hotel, Rydges Melbourne. To say that my husband was excited when he spotted his favourite British beers on tap would be an understatement. The staff were great as was the food and atmosphere in this establishment.

This place was great in its early days but is looking a little tired now. Decent range of beers and good central spot but needs a refurb. Enjoyed the live music on Sat night.

Tasty food having the pub touch to it; provides a good and wide variety of beers and special deals for lunch (Burger). The service is careful and the place is large with plenty of space.

The drinks were good and not overpriced. At about 2am there was a live bank that played. Not too many people. Nice staff. Not too hot.

I was walking past and in the mood for a simple pub meal. The beef burger was great and came with fries that were above the average french fry that one can usually buy.

Randomly found this pub for lunch and glad I did. I had a beautiful home made steak pie. Great service and atmosphere. Well done Elephant and The Wheelbarrow.
