$45 Groupon voucher... Not sure if it was because we had a voucher but the food we ordered was appalling and we could not eat. Left after 20 minutes.

Great location, excellent beer choice and nice simple food menu, and a dinning room with real open fire in winter is a bonus.

Hotel Spencer is a Melbourne icon with 100 years of rich history. Re-opened in 2013, it still stays true to it's classic roots. Good old-fashioned hospitality, atmosphere and pub grub is what we're all about. Our 12 taps give you tonnes of choice in craft and classic beer styles, and we have a good range of wines and spirits too. We welcome a diverse group of patrons, so whether it's a work lunch, after work tradies' drinks, or a pre-event family lunch, our doors are always open! We can cater to your little ones too, just give us a call beforehand. With a convenient location, just a short stroll from Southern Cross station or the Etihad stadium, it's the ideal place to kick off a night on the town or relax after a game.
