Quite a buzz as we were here on a Friday lunchtime. Food looked good although we only had a beer. Good view of the shoppers and street buzz. Beer was well priced so will remember when we go back to Melbourne for a visit.

We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and watching the world go by! The food choices were limited but did offer enough choices to be happy with our selections - we both chose the scotch fillet along with chips and salad, and were happy with...More

They serve pub food inside and out. On first floor with a balcony overlooking Elizabeth Street. I only had a beer. Only take cash so make sure you have some! Have a pool table

If you want basic pub food and drinks then this is the place for you. No fuss , cash only which is strange. Staff are friendly.

Ordered two steak meals, parmie and mini pizza. The one steak arrived with no veg as ordered and I was given a $10 drink voucher for this mix up ( accidents happen, no biggy). We started our meals. The steak was inedible. The porterhouse was...More

This is a premo location to people watch - especially at rush hour. There is an outside balcony that overlooks Elizabeth St that give a great perch to watch the world go by. Large selection of draft beer, didn't try any food.

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
