Dropped in last week and it's all boarded up. Apparently it has been sold in the last couple of weeks, and the new owners have shut it down. Shame. The Steak was good.

The Carron is a nice, friendly, comfortable hotel on Spencer Street. Wide variety of beers on tap and one of the best food menus for a pub I have seen. Always repair to The Carron when I am staying nearby in Melbourne.
