Great place to relax after work with a good selection of beers including Guinness and Kilkenny as well as Australian brews. Quaint surroundings with welcoming bar staff and patrons.

Great old English Pub feel about the place. Not to big so not to noisy. Named rooms were a clever touch. Mrs Hudson’s Pantry and the Dr Watson Bar. What better place to get my Guinness fix.

Some great drops of English beer, service was also very friendly. Food pretty average & a lot of listed beers not on sadly, but still worth a stop for some brews.

with friendly staff. Plenty of popular imports plus the sensational Hopgoblin Ruby (Oxford). Menu also filled with traditional English dishes which were appealing and well presented. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

It's not just the big pub meals and beers on tap selection. It's not the ambience, not the old feel and location on Collins street. It's not the basement feel to it or the occasional activity like trivia etc. It's the staff - keep returning...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
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
