Our group of 6 included Uncle and Aunty aged in their 90's. It was lunch time Sunday 23 April, Michael (one of the Managers) greeted and directed me... More

Went here for drinks with some friends. I didn't not realise how big the place was only we walked outside into the beer garden which was definitely sizeable. Since a few of us were hungry, we also ordered some food. I had the steak sandwich which was alright, and the fries were delicious! Sandwich seemed a little oily was all.

This warm and friendly pub has an indoor dining room and a fabulous outdoor beer garden. The menu was extensive and also had vegetarian options. I went there with a group of 11 friends. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Thanks for giving us the option to split the bill straight up - made it an easy ordering and... More

Sunday for a late lunch. What great value. Pizzas are only $10. A group of 7 we had 4 pizzas plus fries... more than enough food. The fries were delicious. Great wines, and accommodating staff. A relaxed atmosphere with a great beer garden, also more formal dining indoors.

Not knowing the area and in Melbourne for the Cup we looked on line and wrote to a few venues. The correspondence with the Albert staff was really informative and quick. The day of the Cup we arrived to be shown our table inside and then told we could go to the garden to have drinks until we wanted to... More

We arrived around 3.30pm for a Sunday afternoon session and were not disappointed! Live tunes, a beautiful beer garden and incredible food! It took a little while to be served at the inside bar however considering the amount of people there were we really can't complain, especially in light of how quickly our food arrived once it was ordered. There... More

Truly a great venue. Spacious restaurant and an outdoor area. The staff are friendly and happy to oblige. We were here for Mother's Day lunch. A good choice on the menu for the young adults, pizza, burgers etc. and plenty of choice for the more mature of us. Bonus, it has clean toilets. Recommend for a casual lunch and to... More

20 years ago PA's in Richmond was a bit of an institution. You'd order your porterhouse with the red wine jus, fat chips and crusty bread and it was divine. The place was sold up and renovated some years ago and we tried it out and found that too much had changed particularly the porterhouse. Well we gave it another... More

Prince Alfred Hotel is a Richmond institution. Recently renovated, both the food and the decor are a cut above the standard pub. PA's is perfect for business lunches, after work drinks or a lazy summer afternoon in the huge outdoor courtyard.
