Whenever we visit South Melbourne we go to the gate. The seating both inside and out is great and the beer, excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the whole experience is delightful.

Beer battered fish and beer battered potatoes. Worst I’ve ever had in Australia. I guess I should’ve ordered the steak.More

Went in on a random Sunday afternoon visit while on Clarendon street shopping. Went but a burger and pint. The patty in the burger was not the best but overall it tasted great and came with amazing crunchy chips.

The $10 steak special can't be beaten and with daily happy hour from 4-6pm it's hard to beat for value. Friendly staff and great vibe. Would definitely recommend it.

Went to this hotel for a luncheon during a conference with collegues. Hotel offered $10.00 steaks which a few collegues took advantage of. I had the parmiginana which was great. Good size and with the traditional chips and salad, I coudn't fault it.

Spent the evening catching up with some close friends. Hard to decide what to order as everything sounds delicious. Kind and professional staff. And located in a beautiful building. Very much worth the visit.
