Popped in for a quick Guinness on a Sunday afternoon. Quiet and relaxed. Great priced beer, nice staff and a cool little pub hidden away in Carlton.

Being our first time dining in an Irish Pub in Melbourne, interestingly, we had to pay first before food is served. We ordered Irish Stew, Roast Beef & Potterhouse Steak.

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
