My favourite lunch here is the fish and chips with extra lemon and salad! Accompanied by a glass of Shaw & Smith sauvignon blanc. Food always consistently good!!!

Out roaming South Melbourne for a bit more than a coffee & pastry we found the Palmeston Hotel. And who would've thought we'd end up experiencing Melbournes #1 voted Chicken Parmigiana. And it was certainly a good one! The Pub has a great outdoor area with hanging garden, bench seats, seemingly smoking friendly. Also a semi outdoor area (non smoking)... More

All the reviews say "best Parmy in Melbourne". Actually really likes the South Melbourne Dim Sim (fried). Garlic bread was good. Parmy was good, but think I've had better. My friends really liked the wine by the glass. It's a real pub, with a real pub feel to it. Pretty easy to get to, but catching a taxi out the... More

Stayed a couple blocks away. Found it on the web. Had good luck with hotel food in Sydney. Great menu and fair prices. We had the chicken Parm, chicken pot pie and Mac & cheese. All good size portions and delicious. We'll be back.

Its great to dine in a pub where the staff make you feel welcome and have a friendly character. The parmigiana's are a feature but I've found the steaks to be very good and cooked to desired order. There is not a big big mark up on the wines, so its possible to enjoy a steak and red wine without... More

Hey, stayed just a few doors away in a motel along kings way, once you walked inside could have been in any friendly country pub. Great value pub meals with an few old faves. Plenty of beers on tap and handy wine list. Bar and service staff personable and real! Thanks
