The Micawber Tavern is about 3/4 of a kilometer outside Belgrave and nestles in the foot of the Sherbrooke Forest, just as the main Monbulk Road meanders up to Kalista. The Tavern has plenty of parking, has a good outdoors area and a very comfortable and inviting interior. Monday night has recently become their $15/meal night, so I thought that... More

A good dining experience overlooking the running stream at the back of the beer garden - heaps of pub artifacts to look at with a fireplace which makes it super cosy and creates a good atmosphere

This is a funny little pub. Overpriced food and sometimes slow service, But the drinks are fair. It's a great layout, in that there are lots of different sections to set up camp. Quiet, dark corner?

Bangers and mash. Three HUGE pork sausages made with meat, no fillers or breadcrumbs, served with a goodly portion,of mash and peas. A real working man's size portion. I never made it to the third assuage. The platefuls in the rest of the party bore out the size of portion was normal. Cheery staff and a lovely setting with a... More

This is a charming place, both inside on cooler days and nights and outside on warmer afternoons and evenings. Enough choice on the menu to please everyone and a good selection of beers bottled and on tap

Great pub food not too big, at great price- including the drinks. Classic English pub: could think you are in the Cotswolds!

Stopped in Sat arvo for a drink most impressed and then returned for dinner that night. Need to book as the place filled quite fast. Fantastic feed suggest go hungry as the meals are very generous and delicious. Live music was a bonus.

We needed a place to eat at before our 7pm movie and all the other restaurants nearby had kitchens that opened at 6pm, so we booked a table at the Micawber Tavern for 5.30pm. The service was friendly and the initial impression was good, however upon closer inspection this place is in need of some tender loving care! If you... More
