  • 5 star review  A friend talked up these snitties, to say they exceeded my expectations as a foodie is an understatement. I had the Irish and it was an incredibly generous serve. The Chicken was perfectly cooked with a light curry sauce finished with delicious bacon. I tried the Southern and the Regular and both were exceptionally delicious. The service was friendly and accomodating. The decor is as warm and comforting as the food. The pub is located in a glorious area. I rate this place as a foodie destination 5 stars.

    5 star review  Went here a few times before the first lockdown and really enjoyed every visit. The wait staff were really nice and accommodating. Each time I went I tried a different style of parma, all of them tasted great and the portions were filling. The overall atmosphere is great and reminds me of home.

  • 5 star review  The Guinness in this place is second to none! Not to mention the huge and delicious Parma, fair to say I will definitely be back. Best Guinness in Melbourne!!

    5 star review  Coming from a country town that used to have its own Pig & Whistle, my god does this place remind us that we miss the local country pub! Portions - huge, and everything cooked and seasoned well. Plus you get your locals banter from the friendly front of house.

    5 star review  Great little pub. Huge (and tasty) meals. Good choice of craft beers on tap and friendly staff. Was very busy on a Monday night so I would book in advance if I am in Sassafras again.

  • 5 star review  The food at this place is incredible. Every individual in our group commented on the quality, ambience and taste experience. It's not cheap here, but beware, the meals are large servings. The bangers and mash were exceptional with a perfect gravy designed to intersect both the sausages and mash flavours to a tee. The beef pie was also the best, perfect balance of flavouring. The vegetarian pizza was an 11/10. Sumptuous fresh dough with a perfectly balanced quantity of toppings. We had an executive general-area restaurant manager with us whom looks after about 300 outlets across Indonesia and Singapore. This man is hard to impress, but he kept going on about how good his steak was. Book ahead, the place is popular.

    5 star review  English style pub with solid range of English beers plus Guinness on tap. Food servings are huge and the wine list is not bad either. Recommended!

    5 star review  Very cosy, great atmosphere and warm fireplace makes for a lovely place to visit on a cold winters night. The food is good and the portions are huge! Can't go past the classic parmigiana. Can get very busy so book ahead and allow time for parking as car parks are limited.
