Our first visit and we will definitely be back. Wait staff were polite service was excellent, no time wasted as meals were prompt and food was excellent. Highly recommend the tasting plate to share and the the pork belly melted in the mouth. All of this backed up by an exceptional list of tap beers. 5 stars

Walking through the door for the first time is like a trip into a London pub in a bygone era and you instantly feel like settling in for the long haul. It was cold when we came by and the fire was perfect to sit by and try to get through all the tap beers with my wife. Mission achieved.... More

This is NOT a pub. It is a restaurant that has a bar. 10 bucks for a pint of beer is well over the odds as far a I am concerned if you just want a few drinks with some mates. The service was at least better than my last visit when it was embarrassing (we had guests from overseas... More

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.

Thank taracat2016
