Once in a while
Apr 2019 • Friends
Once in a while a place just gets it right! Great beers on tap! Tip my hat for the perfectly made classic cocktails. Food is fricken amazing, best vegan burger in all of Melbourne! The tunes they play are on point, with some of the best live music this city has to offer. And the decor is relaxed and comfortable, they've taken pride in a classic mix of timbers, exposed brick, plants in a relaxed uncluttered and unpretentious way. Combine all this with the most generous service and hospitality from the owners and workers alike and you have the perfect recipe for the best Local of all time! Because what happens next is the customers, punters, locals care and it gets a vibe of big smiles and cheer cause... once in a while a bar just gets it right!

A great place for locals to gather. Have been gathering here for at least ten years and will continue to do so. Beer and service is great and good food too.

Laid back

I feel like I’m at a friends house when I go to the Thornbury local. It’s cosy, the staff are very friendly and the food served is your perfect Aussie meal. Great place to sit back and hang out.
I also took a vegan here before and they said that The Thornbury Local’s vegan pizza is the best that he’s had.

A wee drink before heading home . . . .
Feb 2018 • Couples
Feeling like a quiet place to have a drink after being at the local child friendly hotel for dinner, we decided to check out the Thornbury Local to get back to normal again.

What a great pub. Very small, with a couple of street side tables and when we were there, great live music.

Did the "back to sanity" job nicely with great friendly staff and drink selection. If it wasn't so late at night, I would have looked at their menu.

Great catch up

Great spot to catch up with friends. Good outdoor vibe, yummy food selection from the food trucks. A bit noisy inside. They could have had the outside bar open to save ling queuing for drinks though.

good for small functions
May 2017 • Friends
Attended a 50th birthday here- the upstairs area was a good venue for a private do- though probably 50 people is max up there. The balcony area only holds a few people and the staff are strict on this (which is good given some recent balcony disasters).
Catering was good and drinks at bar prices.
Bar was a bit quirky and cosy. I really liked it.

I often drive past here between 2-3am on Sunday mornings too and there's always a few people sitting quietly at the downstairs bar. Pleasant local hang out.... not too crowded like some nearby venues.

Best bar in Thornbury for over 9 years
Apr 2016 • Friends
Used to go here when it was Bender Bar, back before I had kids. Haven't got out much for a while but recently got back to the now-Thornbury Local and it was pumping - but in a nice, drop in with friends for a drink way.

An old friend needed a night out recently, had gone through some pretty rough relationship stuff, we came here and chatted, drank fine ale, chatted to some friendly people sitting next to us, and watched an extremely good duo (can't remember the name but two women doing originals with guitar and mandolin).

Far less likely to let you down than the much hyped Welcome To Thornbury over the road, where you are more likely to run into lads from Thomastown than see the real Thornbury, the little indie haven sitting on top of Northcote.

Friendly waiters, colorful warm place, good live music and very good Italian pizza and pasta! The beverages are fine, and the price of overall it's fair.
