Great English Pub Grub

We ate here twice while in Melbourne recently and were not disappointed. Good honest Pub food, huge serves for $20-$25 and very tasty. Great beers on tap and a good English pub vibe. This was our fave watering hole while there and I will definitely return

This is the perfect venue for lunch before the game with reasonable opening hours (doors at 11am: kitchen at 12) and an easy stroll to the MCG. The ambience is surprisingly cosy, but the TV screens can be a bit of a distraction. Most importantly, they keep a pretty good barrel, particularly 'Old Speckled Hen' and 'Kilkenny' - a pricey...

A cosy nice pub which was warm and inviting on a cold winters night. Very busy so assumed it was good for a feed. A little dissappointed, food was just average. The wait was a little long as well. Possibly wouldnt go back.

I was feeling extremely hungry after my trip from Adelaide this morning and not having eaten decided to go for a walk to find somewhere to eat. After looking in the window I noticed this pub to be very busy, so a busy restaurant is a good restaurant usually. I looked at the menu and the staff are very friendly... More

A very british pub. Made me feel like I was home. Service and drink selection was good. They sold beers and ales I haven't seen in years so it was nice to see them and try them again. Give it a go

Waiters didn't know what was going on. Some said I could get food, others said I couldn't. In the end I left after only a beer

As part of our bar crawl on Saturday we popped into this pub for a drink. Wow this is a really nice Brittish style pub. It was full of people of all ages. Families were welcome as well. We didn't eat as we had booked dinner elsewhere but the food looked really nice and I would like to return to... More

Difficult place to get a table without booking, however they have an upstairs dining area which requires you to collect your meal from the ground floor bar area then cart your serving upstairs to the other dining area, which can be a tad difficult. The meals are ok and the servings quite large, I had the venison pie floater which... More

My wife and I dropped in here fir dinner one night and found the atmosphere of the old pub nice. Heating was excessive and the Roast beef was thickly sliced Round steak which is better suited for crumbed steak after being belted with a hammer to make it tender. I spent 30 years in the meat industry both wholesale and... More
