Really lovely atmosphere, with food that tasted amazing! My sister particularly liked the chef's special lasagna (the best she has ever had!) Service was also excellent.

After having a little mixup with our orders today, we had amazing above and beyond service from AMELIA. She was so attentive and lovely and my partner and I more than appreciate her thoughtfulness. She went the next mile to make sure our lunch ticked along smoothly and we were happy.
We need more service like this!!

We will be back!
Thanks again.

Always a pleasure to dine out at The Elephant & Castle. Always friendly staff, great food & a nice variety. Price is great too- with weekly specials. It's always warm & inviting & comfortable. With lots of photos to look at on the walls- lol- so there's plenty to discuss. We always come home full & happy. Thank you..xx

Very good parmi and Guinevere on tap. Spent a weekday catching up with a mate, was quiet enough to enjoy the company. Plenty of good photography and art on the walls. Will be going back to see what the courtyard is like.

Our second time to this venue to support Alfi Rocker band and today had lunch. Food was generous and beautiful and the service was friendly and professional . The Band as always was awesome and we had a wonderful afternoon and we expect to return to support Alfi Rocker band in the future

Food was outstanding. The Sunday roast, pork ribs and kids meals were some of the best pub food we've had in a long time. And portions were a great size. Definitely 5/5 for the food. Service was pretty bad. Averaged out at about 4/5 overall for the whole experience. I'd recommend eating in the bar area rather than table service in the restaurant. That way you won't wait 30 mins for your drinks.

Came in to watch a game and although I wasn't looking to eat, the beetroot cured salmon looked good on the menu so though I'd have a little snack. Bloody great job kitchen crew! Just an all round nicely executed dish. Flavours were balanced with just the right amount of each component to make it a standout. I'll bring the fam for dinner some time.

We travelled from Melbourne to try the Sunday Roast at the Elephant and Castle Hotel. The food was incredible - generous serves, freshly cooked and delicious! The staff seemed nervous and a little stressed - perhaps understaffed, with a large function outdoors for lunch. The easily-audible conversations between staff members, as we waiting for our meal, were a bit unnerving and didn't really put us at ease. Would we go back? Yes! In a heartbeat!

This was our first visit to the Elephant & Castle, and it certainly will not be our last. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and a uniquely decorated interior made the E & C a place that definitely deserves high marks. It's just one of those places that makes you want to come back, for more...Thanks for looking after us!

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful pub!! The locals are very lucky to have these charming building within walking distance!
Well where do I start, firstly the stunning flowers and greenery "growing from the bricks" of this building will have you entranced, we weren't quite sure where to sit with our 2 border collies but the lovely bar man was very helpful and pointed us to a completely enclosed outdoor area with many tables to choose from. Within minutes of sitting down, our 2 dogs were greeted with a bowl of water and lots of pats. Just before our food arrived, our dogs were treated to some treats from the kitchen from the most amazing waitress (thank you so very much for making us and our dogs feel so welcome) our food arrived garlic bread and a parma to share, absolutely delicious and we were very grateful to the kitchen as we did arrive some time after 2pm on a Sunday I'm sure they were nearly ready to do clean up etc before dinner service, not that you would know from the quality of food!
Could not recommend the Elephant and Castle Hotel more if we tried, an absolute must if you have fur babies, I can assure you they will be treated like kings and queens!
Look forward to another visit soon!

Food was delicious, especially the seafood linguine and the steak pot pie. Chicken parma (not parmi) was also good - just the right size. Sticky date pudding was amazing. Not a great range of local wines but good none the less. Lots of photos on display, some more risque than others. Service was fantastic.

We were a party of five, two had hearing aids and our first table was near the bar - which was very busy. We enquired as to whether a table was available in a quieter area. The staff were very helpful and soon had as at a quieter. We all had a wonderful evening. The food was very good. We were so pleased with the manner in which our request had been handled, the waiter and manager were so pleasant. Never, disappointed and our inter-state guests were impressed also. Thank you

I'm reluctant to say how fabulous dinner was because then we will never get in! Amazing service, food and atmosphere. Flawless. Cannot wait to return. I would go 7 nights a week if I could.

Geelong does it again! A little pub on the corner turned into a fantastic restaurant. Everyone went for the Seafood Linguini and I can see why. It was awesome. Served on a broth with spice, it was generous with prawns, scallops and mussels. An iconic place that pays tribute to Daryl Lyons, a famed celebrity photographer. You will spend time looking at the photos of celeb's adorning the walls. Another great "Go-to" in Geelong!

Food was great. Entrees were impressive, nicely presented, good serving sizes and nice flavours. Mains were nice but not as impressive as entrees.
Definitely worth the visit if you're in the area. Staff were lovely too. Atmosphere was nice.

What an awesome place for a quiet beer and a trip down "memory lane" looking at the photographs on the walls. Just a great place to visit. Awesome staff

Celebrated a 91st birthday, 14 people. Food was delicious, service really good considering how busy it was. Good atmosphere, lovely staff.

Appealing looking menu but poorly executed.

Over-cooked and under-seasoned pasta (1% salt in your pasta water guys, it's not that hard), with tiny scallops cooked hard as rubber bullets. Average fish and chips. A broken app that invites you to order drinks from the table, but doesn't let you. Friendly staff, but with no masks.

All in all disappointing as it looked like a great pub from appearances.

I had the fettuccine marinara. It was AMAZING! Highly recommend it. The service was excellent. It was a really hot night, but it was cool in the restaurant. I'll definitely be back.
