Went to lunch here on a saturday and was pleasantly surprised. On entering it felt a bit dated and squishy but after a while I really enjoyed the shabby chic English pub style. The food was good quality, mainly pub fare and huge servings (ate half and still full 4 hours later). The big winner... read more

Wow, what a menu for a pub! I ordered the fish of the day (red snapper), which was served with prawns and a creamy pea risotto. My partnered went with the Spicy Red Thai Curry, which came with chicken, pumpkin & spinach. You won't leave here hungry & you won't be disappointed by the food or the service :)

We tried to get in for dinner on a Friday and couldn't get a table - it's not a huge place, and it's very popular. We had more luck pre-booking a table for lunch on a Sunday. The serving team were really friendly and managed to be efficient without being hurried, and the food was solid pub grub. Worth a... More

This very busy 'English' pub is a great place to have a drink, eat and take the kids to. As an English person, I have some issues with the menu being British, I think the menu a little outdated,and not traditional, having said that, our food was fine,but it has room for improvement. The staff are lovely, and busy.The British... More

Again the food was excellent! Our favourite place in the Dandenong's, brilliant service and scrumptious wines. Very cozy too. Always book in advance,as it is usually booked out.
