Latest reviews for Great Northern Hotel, Carlton North VIC

Great beer garden and the second best steak sandwich in Australia (so I'm told). It was bloody delicious though ?
I recently had the pleasure of dining at your pub and I must say, the steak sandwich was absolutely incredible! The meat was cooked to perfection - tender, juicy, and packed full of flavor. The freshness of the bread and the crispness of the lettuce provided a perfect balance to the richness of the steak. Every bite was a symphony of textures and flavors.

The ambiance of the pub also added to the overall dining experience. It was warm, welcoming, and perfectly suited for a casual meal or a night out with friends. The service was impeccable, with staff constantly attentive to our needs.

Thank you for providing such a memorable meal. I can't wait to come back and try more of your menu. Keep up the great work

What an awesome dog friendly pub. Meals were delicious, fast and friendly service and we highly recommend it with or without a furbaby

Last Drinks for Jones,

It was a delight having this place as a venue for a send-off for a fellow inmate who got an early release.

The beers were cold, service with a smile & a story.
And enough room to swing a pool que around.

We didn't get a chance to eat, but I'm sure it would have been superb.
Great setting in a historic pub. Seating layout and options is good including a small private room.
Ordering at the bar and good delivered to your table in a reasonable time of around ten minutes.
Menu variety fairly typical of the pub scene.

I got the chicken schnitzel which was average in taste, texture and price. I did ask for and paid for a garlic sauce but that never came.
The chicken wings come with bleu cheese which was good.
Service was friendly.
One of Melbourne's great pubs. Amazing food, super friendly staff and a great laidback vibe

Nice service and great selection of local tap beers. Feel like the bar might have been a tad understaffed but I do realise how hard it is right now for hospo!

Chips could have been slightly crispier but other than that the Parma tasted great! Nice fresh sauce and some good ham ?

Try some of the sour beers they are delicious!

Dog friendly, great food, great selection of beers, feels like pubs used to inside & has a beer garden out the back if you want to share lunch with the pooch.

A regular patron said that hotel has been operating in continuity since late 1800s. Does tick the box for olde heritage inn atmosphere except ceiling is not rafters & indoor area is pretty large.

The usual pay when you order, grab your cutlery, drinks & table number & wait to be served. Service is fast.

A place to gather to watch your favourite game with huge screens indoors & out. Apparently clientele has morphed to more younger gen. frequenting here - was evident for lunch Fri yday.

$26 for main Crumbed calamari, chips & salad & $12 for glass of Prosecco. Calamari was not so fresh but chips & salad were good. We sat in the large patio area at the back which was wet including the chairs (not rain). Could this not have been wiped down? We had to use napkins to mop up.

Looks like quiet dogs on leash are allowed in the outside patio area. Overall - pleasant lunch dine in experience ??'??
Epic venue, great vibes and delicious beers! The Blue Bonnet collaboration is next level too! Highly recommend

I don't have much to say, the Parma I had here is defs in my top 3 of best parmas I've ever had, please just order the Parma, no need to check what else they make (but if it's anything like the Parma, I'm sure it's amazing). Heaps of street parking near by, food didn't take long to come out either, been back a few times since!
Federico Viola
Local pub with locals flogging it. The food is good value and quality is there. The beer selection is outstanding and the atmosphere is great. Their courtyard is dog-friendly and the visitors are friendly and just nice. Great place to watch the footy, soccer or rugby or to go for a chat with your friend. The staff is always knowledgeable and warm.

Premium sports pub in Melbourne! Food is top notch, good beers on tap, and the wall of puppy locals is the cherry on top!
Grace Oakley
Great Pub atmosphere. It's worth checking what the weekly specials are as every time I've tried the specials they have been great! IPA braised lamb and the milky sponge cake were table favourites. Great flavour and reasonably priced! Well done Kitchen ??'??

Great layout and beer selection, good tunes etc. The service was a bummer though. Waits for drinks are already long enough due to meals but made longer due to aloofness and chatting to mates. Maybe an off night but general bar awareness didn't seem to be there.
Basically, if I wanted hipster service there are a million other places I could choose around here.

Could be a better Sunday Roast at $20.00.

Crackling was good ... potato cake and romasco sauce, just NQR.

Food ??"??"??"?
Wine ??"??"??"??" good list and reasonable, Tassie Pinot Noir, and Balter is always good
Venue ??"??" very dark in the dining area, loud and packed, sure there was a boxing live stream.
Service ??"??"??"??"

Would we go back?
We'll check out their steak night.

Big local pub in the thick of the suburbs. You hardly know it's there, until you know it's there... Then you meet all the other excellent folk that know where it is... Then you meet Benson the bartender and suddenly you wish you lived there (not recommended for health reasons).

Food and service were great. Atmosphere was really nice too, however, it was extremely busy and food took a very long time to arrive. I understand why it took so long and am not holding it against the pub, just pointing it out. It's a really popular place, so don't go in there when really hungry, hang out, have some drinks and slowly wait for your food if too busy. Would love to go back but maybe during a quieter time of day.
The great Northern is a great pub. The inside has a classic old pub feel but the outside beer garden is where its at. Lovely timber deck area with a great vibe. Plenty of shade for warm days, and it's also dog friendly which is 5 stars in my eyes. A great range of beer on tap, and a cider tap inside also. Great spot for an arvo drink.
Paul Dover
Good selection of food...usual pub fare plus a few specials. I had the pulled pork roll...which was good and just right for a 'light' lunch!
GREAT selection of beers on tap. Extensive, doggie friendly beer garden / outdoors areas. One of our regular lunch spots. Well recommended
Kevin Carey
Loads of character. Beer garden has a good variety of seating options. Food really good. Cost on the high side.
