good location just a walk across from Marys Coach House

We did like things so close by but also did not have to travel far to see other places like puffing billy or just the drives in the hills and we came across Wickards where you see aboriginal sculptures in the ferns.

Celebrated our sister in-laws birthday here for lunch today. The meals and service were exceptional. The staff went the extra mile and very impressed by our waitress Izzy. Will definitely go back. Well done!

Lovely on a cold night in the Dandenongs. Open fire and smoky atmosphere. Don't order the bread and meat entree platter if you anticipate eating heaps more.. It will fill you up. haha.. Great food and service.. Have been a couple of times and would always go again.

So, it may be a bit of a trip up into the Dandenong Ranges, but the Pig & Whistle is one of the few places in Melbourne area where you can get a pint of English beer. When we visited, they had Fullers and Speckled Hen, imported from the UK. They also seem to do a range of microbrewery ales,... More

If a restaurant was all about the food then I could rate this far higher, but the service was so slow, and some orders weren't right, that it detracted from what could have been a top night. Very comfortable, cosy and cute all decked out for Christmas in July, but even the payment at the end was ordinary with the... More

Came here on a cold day at 11am, so the heating only just started which meant that we ate our entire meal in the freezing cold environment, even though we were right next to the fire. Service was minimal - had to wait for a while to be taken to our table, had to chase the waitress to order a... More

From the initial phone enquiry & booking thru to our exit after our meal, we were blown away! We had to change our dining time, and I rang early in the morning for Sunday lunch, and it was handled without a drama, and in fact made very welcome! The service was spot on, and we were attended to in a... More

Very busy place on a Sunday but service was great. Replica of a typical English pub. Maybe a little bit cramped. Parking was a little hard to find. Food was delicious and plenty of it.

Friendly atmosphere, plenty of outdoor seating with heaters to watch the Foxtel sport channel - a bit of fun for footy lovers.
