Located in a great central location you might walk past this tavern without even knowing its there. Go in and have a few beers and a good meal, you wont be disappointed.

Cassidy – I went to the Bull & Bear for lunch with some work mates on a Friday. I can’t say that I really like the place. It definitely has the feel of a traditional pub, but maybe too much so. They could do with...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
