We did a lunch time theater show and went looking for some good food afterwards. A pub meal was most appealing to the group so we ended up at the E&W. The food was good, service was froiendly and the price was great.

We ate here for a couple of nights. The pub is based on an English hotel and carries a wide variety of lagers, stouts and ales. The food is sensational based around pub grub but a 300gm porterhouse was probably close to the best I have ever had..... Do yourself a favor and eat very well at a reasonable price....

Had a really enjoyable Sunday afternoon at the Elephant and Wheelbarrow. It has the feel of a genuine English pub with carpet and dark painted walls, with English beers on tap. The food was great (yes it is pub food - but it is unmistakably a pub) including an English Ploughmans which was terrific. There was a really pleasant homely... More

Typical Pub, find a table, put your order in at the bar. A good selection of both beers and wines. Meals are served reasonably quickly, are flavourful, maybe a touch over cooked in a couple of the chicken meals, but generally quite good.

Called in for a casual meal and drink. Received basic pub grub with a good variety, good flavours and serving sizes. The staff were efficient and pleasant and the atmosphere very pleasant. Good value for a quick home style meal.

We only went here for a drink after being out to dinner. We are from a regional area and were very surprised by the drink prices. First round was $41 for a glass of wine, a gin and tonic, a pint of cider and a pint of beer. I thought it was expensive, our son paid and he didn't question... More

A group of eight of us dropped in for a drink, and after enjoying a couple of the many beers available on tap decided to stay for a bite to eat. There was a good selection on offer, at reasonable prices. Our meals arrived after a short wait and were very large and delicious. The staff were friendly and service... More

Great place to meet for lunch and drinks on a Saturday afternoon before the footy or cricket. Lots of Beatles memorabilia, being directly across the road from where the Southern Cross Hotel once stood, and where the Beatles stayed in 64. Great meals, good English beers on tap. Staff can be rather rude though. Almost seems as if they're forced... More
