It’s not trying to be something it’s not, good pub with pub sized meals and plenty of beer to go around. Good for a group of friends looking for some decent grub.

You really need to book! This is a restaurant that is very tight on space. I think more suitable for couples and people out for a drink. However the food was good.

Bar is downstairs and is decorated in old London fashion with oodles of paintings on the walls - aalmost like home from home! . Staff very friendly and good selection of beers. We came for beer really but shared a light snack as well..

On Collins Street, The Sherlock Holmes offers a welcome refuge - cold beer and good pub food. They have recently opened a sister bar on street level but you will want to go downstairs.

Walked in off the main street down the stairs at lunchtime to find the place fairly busy. Looked like a lot of locals. Well lit and very clean. The owner immediately got us a table in the corner by the bar with menus and drinks....More

We did not really research this place before going here. It just happened to be a very wet afternoon, and this was near :). Only later I learned this is a local landmark and well appreciated as one of the best pubs in central Melbourne....More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
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
