Enjoyed a couple pints of Hargreaves Hill plus a sensational parmigiana. Lovely historic pub with a nice atmosphere. Seating inside and out plus fun trivia on Tuesday evenings. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

If you’re in Melbourne and looking for an authentic British pub head to the Mitre Tavern. Outside of being unable to buy cask ale everything else (including the staff) is terrific.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
