Dinner at College Lawn with my family was a disaster. It's close by so thought we would give them another try, after long wait for meals in the past. The menu must be too big for the kitchen to manage or they just don't have...More

The beef burger and Corona $20 deal on Wednesday Trivia nights is actually pretty good. This is a lovely pub for a drink and I recommend it as a friendly local. If you are visiting Melbourne and staying nearby, drop in for a drink.

Nestled in the back streets of Prahran you'll find the College Lawn Hotel, a hotel that offers the warmth and welcoming feel of a favourite local. The hotel consists of a lounge bar, public bar, function room, bottle-shop, two sun drenched courtyards and of course a restaurant where the great meals and inexpensive menu are nicely complemented by the friendly atmosphere. Pool tables, happy hours, live sport and slab raffles - if it's not your own local, by the time you leave it will feel like it is. The College Lawn also offers backpacker accommodation and is a favourite for visiting internationals due to both our location and the comfortable, affordable accommodation on offer.
