A great place with a great pub menu. Food was tasty and service overall was friendly. Loved the Pommy Platter - the warm bread was so good!

Booked for dinner with friends, told we could not book a table for 7.45pm, we must be seated by 7.30pm if we wished to order dinner - despite website advertising the restaurant is open until 11-pm.

Very average and rather pricey for what was offered. Didn't get any smile from the wait staff and definitely not returning.

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.
