A return visit for us to the E&W as a number of other places we had recommended were shut on Monday! Their loss was our gain as we usually squeeze in a visit here when visiting the CBD. We had a hearty lunch of bangers and mash and pie floater with mushy peas....cue massively full stomachs for the... read more

The food was reasonably priced, the quality and quantity was excellent. The bangers and mash was hot and tasty, 2 of us had vegetables with garlic butter. Hot and tasty, the vegetables were each cooked to perfection

I visited here with friends to have some drinks on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was so good that we ended up staying until it closed and 3am. They were playing the English Premier League on the T.V. which was good to watch. It was great that there was an area where you could dance, which was upstairs and an... More

a little better than average pub to grab a beer and see some live music. Rather small. But good atmosphere, staff

Went here because couldn't get into the first choice for restaurant. Nevertheless, it was a nice night. Staff a bit slow in cleaning tables though. Ended up having to shuffle plates onto the uncleaned tables behind. Good pub, nice food. I think the last drink order got ripped off and it seemed very expensive for 1 pint and 1 glass... More

We had dinner here before going to Her Majesty's for a show. I had the mini beef sliders which were delicious and my husband had the steak sandwich, also delicious. Prices are good, service was prompt and sitting outside is great for people watching.

Tuesday night in Melbourne and looking for a good value meal, second visit to the Elephant and Wheelbarrow. It was busy and loudish on both occasions. First time had the steak sandwich this time the fish n chips. Both meals were good though not great, good pub food. All in all good value, friendly service and comfortable atmosphere. We'll be...

What you would expect from an olde English pub chain. Big space, upstairs is where the live bands play. Easy going & last knockings is really late. Seems to host all the main sporting events. Worth a visit if its your cup of tea.

Arrived 15 mins too early for lunch - wasn't being served until 12pm. As we were attending a matinee theatre performance, we weren't going to risk running late, so had drinks only. Nice ice cold ciders served by a rather brusque barman. Atmosphere inside the pub? Well, it's modelled on an English pub, but we couldn't compare it with the... More
