  • A regular favourite, you will not be disappointed. Great cozy atmosphere, with lovely people making great English grub. They have great menu options, definitely try the parmas, and if you can get in early their roasts are amazing. The place can get a little loud, and on a busy night it will take a little time to get your meal, but both are a sign of their success.

    Don't even question it, go the pork belly, absolutely delicious meal, service was top notch and the kids nuggets are mini schnitzels.

  • We had an early dinner here for the first time. The atmosphere is warm and cosy, in an old english styled tavern. The place wasn't too noisy (around 6.30pm on a Friday) which was great. We had their Southern Style Chicken Parma and we rate it 5/5, one of the best we've had. With a hint of spice, the meat was juicy, not overly thick, with a generous amount of sauce and cheese on top. When you cut into it, the sauce oozes out...the way it should be! Accompanied by crunchy chips and a delicious salad. This Parma belongs on the top 5 list of 'Best Parmas in Melbourne'....I wonder why it isn't! Oh the tables they also provide balsamic vinegar, much to my partner's delight! We will be back to try other dishes! Parking: We arrived early at 5.30pm on a Friday, the place was quarter full but the carpark was nearly at capacity already. You might not be able to get a park on a busy night.

  • One of the most amazing places I've been to. Didn't know where I was going because it was a surprise lunch, but absolutely loved it. The service was above and beyond. Food servings were massive and very fresh. Staff were wonderful. Always great to see someone smiling and talking to the patrons. Great value. Will definitely be back and recommend to everyone to come up and enjoy. Well done to you all

    This place is a definite winter favourite. We haven't been since before covid, and walking in to see the fire blazing was a welcome site on a nine degree day. The selection of beers on tap is amazing and the food is wholesome, hearty and guaranteed to keep the wolf from the door. Looking to come back soon for Christmas in July. Note that, while we were lucky to snag a table, bookings are recommended as it was fully booked for a Sunday lunch. PS, the mulled wine is a real treat!

  • We went in there on a public holiday, unannounced, found a table next to the bar for a beer and a glass of wine, and asked for a Welsh Rarebit and a toasted cheese, bacon and garlic. The service was amazing, our food arrived a lot sooner than we expected, and we had a lovely experience. What more can I say, other than go there for a British Pub experience.

    Warm, cosy, and lovely meals. The pig and whistle is a great option if you're looking for a hearty meal and drink.
