Popped in for a few dark pints. Great old pub that reminds me a lot of the UK. They have food and more importantly Guinness ! Give it a try if your around. Lots of character, dark wood and real fire 🔥

Love this place. Reminds me of the old country. Small if the first floor is closed. Beers on draught good but small collection. Yet again it is a pub not a beer house. The food is oh-so good. We had garlic bread and the Guinness...More

This is a really nice Irish pub. There is a good atmosphere and a few little booths if you are lucky enough to get one. The service is good and prices are quite reasonable. The steak and guinness pie is a favourite.

We went to this pub numerous times during our stay in Melbourne. The food was lovely really recommend the guinness chicken. It's a really cosy Irish Pub and well worth a visit. The pints of Guinness were really great too.

Busy little pub with a good atmosphere. We both had one of the specials, steak & Guinness pie which was hearty, tasty and filling. Service was a little inattentive at first but pleasant enough. Decent pub food, reasonably priced, in a pleasant relaxed atmosphere.

Went here for drinks and a snack on a saturday afternoon. What a great little pub. Lovely atmosphere and nice Irish decor with an open fire (although it wasn't lit cos it is summer after all). We had Herb/Garlic bread and Wedges. They were delicious...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
