The iconic Pumphouse Hotel has changed its name. In 1987, a pioneer in the themed Hotel game, Betty Jenkins, took a tired and run-down St Andrews Hotel and renamed it as patrons for the last 30 years have known it as The Pumphouse Hotel. Upon upgrading the façade of the Hotel recently, the current owners Tony and Anna Vujic discovered the embedded logo of the original name of the Hotel. Coupled with a major renovation to the bar and dining area in late 2017, this brought about the decision of re-naming. Our new branding for the St Andrews Hotel incorporates the Ancient Legend of the Celtic “Tree of Life”. The tree, amongst other things is the symbol of rebirth, strength and friendship which

This pub/hotel has had a refit, and it’s a very pleasant place to eat. The staff were very welcoming and attentive over the couple of hours we were there. The food was really delicious, and there were plenty of choices to suit everyone at our...table of 8. Thus hotel is highly recommended.More

It’s been quite a few years since I visited this hotel, previous time was when it was called the pumphouse which I visited for a work lunch. WOW this has not only maintained its high standards it has improved. We had the best eye fillet...steak that we can remember. The side of Chips and the Sautéed seasonal vegetables with smoked almonds were also amazing. Our waiter Kiara was extremely attentive and deserves a Gold star for being so brilliant. Will definitely be returning to this Gem and would encourage you to also.More

St Andrews hotel, is a must if you are in Fitzroy, or as I am A local. A wonderful warm family owned hotel, with great service and great meals. It’s a delightfully renovated hotel, which makes for a wonderful experience. I have had several family...and extended family functions there, ( birthdays and wake) and it has made for a great venue. ATM with COVID they are open and making the most of the situation. This might seem as if it is a influenced review but I assure that it is not. Their other speciality is specials with offerings like , kangaroo, wild boar, venison among others.More

The food was delivered, beautifully packaged, still hot and at the requested time and it tasted as wonderful as if we'd been sitting in the restaurant.

Last month, I attended my sister's wedding at St. Andrews Hotel. There is an ideal reception room at the back of the hotel where this special event occurred. It was an incredible evening. The food provided by the hotel was excellent. The staff were readily...available with food trays, yet were scarce enough to not crowd the guests.More

Very welcoming modern and clean establishment offering a wide selection of drinks and a varied menu. We enjoyed our choice of burger and port chop meals. Food quality was excellent and portion size more than enough to satisfy a good appetite. Location is near Carlton...Park and within walking distance of the free tram network. Would highly recommend a visit.More
