We recently visited the Dandenong Ranges and had a meal at this quaint little pub. Menu provided sufficient variety and we enjoyed our wholesome meal. Would recommend this place.

Menu hasn't changed in years. Can't stomach another bowl of pumpkin soup! No tolerance for dietary requirements. I asked them to leave the linguine off the plate for my fish of the day and they refused. Was about the fifth occasion I'd asked for a similarly small concession for gluten intolerance.

This little gem in Olinda is great for lunch or dinner and the food is excellent and the staff lovely, family environment. We have been here on 3 occasions and loved it every time. We will keep visiting, this one is not to be missed.

I had the fish fillets with chips. The wife had the chicken salad. The size of the servings was enormous and brilliant quality. Icy cold beer (about 15 varieties) available along with wine spirits and soft drink. Quick service considering the place was full. Highly recommended.

This place was abuzz on a Friday evening. Glad I had made a reservation earlier. Pork belly was divine, and the other food was not too bad either. Portions were HUGE! The entree size pork belly was sufficient to feed a grown man. I had also ordered children's pizza. When it arrived, I thought they made a mistake. It was... More

From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and attentive, happy and nothing was too much trouble. The tavern was warm and cozy with loads of atmosphere. The menu had a good range of delicious sounding choices, plenty of... More

Then head on up to the Pig & Whistle. Plenty of beers on tap, terrific English pub grub, cosy fires and terrible mobile reception ensures you can enjoy the afternoon without being disturbed. Parking can be tight and don't go on a Friday or Saturday night. Too crowded.
