Great pub with great pub meals and atmosphere, you can eat outside, there was 5 of us and lucky for us we got in without a booking, but l strongly suggest to book to avoid disappointment. The meals are large, good value. 5 of us ate, chicken schnitzel with chips, salad & gravy on the side, pasta of the day which was matricana, double burger with chips and bangers & mash, all dishes were delicious.

The buffalo wings were steamed or slow cooked?? And they had no buffalo sauce but instead drenched in barbecue sauce lol.

Pretty bad food but everything else was chill

Both times we have had a meal there they have been lovely. Home made Lasagne. The sauce on the parmigiana is delicious. And really a large parmy!!!!! Bangers and Mash also delicious. Think home made Sausages. Very nice.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Thanks for a great meal.

Typical suburban pub located in North Melbourne. Stopped in for a quick drink, seems popular with locals. Has an outdoor drinking area which only overlooks the busy roundabout. Drop in if you're in the area and feeling thirsty.

Everything was lovely, it just took a long time for the food to circulate for our group. It seemed like the staffing wasn't adequate as they couldn't staff the bar and serve food at the same time. But the food and the staff were lovely

I ordered a chicken schnitzel and a Belgium stout.
The chicken schnitzel covered the plate. Very nice with gravy, chips and a side salad. The Belgium stout was magnificent.
The meals came out very quickly, we were there early and there were only a few patrons in the hotel. Service was good.

Was invited for a friend's birthday. The finger food served was fresh and tasty. The staff were great including the security guy's who actually mingled with the crowd. And location is pretty good being in the back streets plenty of parking.

Cannot fault this place. Beautiful tasty food with good sized meals. Service was above and beyond. We had my mum in a wheelchair and they could not accommodate us enough. The atmosphere was lovely with great music selection. A special thank you to the staff for making our hospital trip that little bit easier.

Pretty cool venue. Vibe was really nice. Great bar staff. Steaks were expensive and over cooked, but still ok. Being charged 2 bucks for mustard on top was a first too. I'd go back for a beer, but would probably recommend eating elsewhere.

Nice place. My boys ate burgers, wings and chicken parma. I would have liked more vegetarian options. Good place to relax. Pool table is in an awkward place. ?

I chose the Castle for the book launch of my new novel 'Sweeney and the Bicycles'. Everyone enjoyed the quality finger food and bar service and full co-operation from the staff. Rob was on the ball in every way with room set-up and arrangements. The bar staff were friendly and efficient and my guests were happy! No fuss whatsoever.

Recently hosted a club event here in the upstairs function room - the entire process from booking the venue to running the event was buttery smooth, with no hiccups or confusion. The function room itself is gorgeous and practical, and it has all the facilities needed to run a high quality, self-contained dinner, trivia and party night. Service was excellent and the kitchen served food very quickly. Thank you!

Do not pass this place without going in & having a drink & a feed. I'm from Sydney, but this place gave me the vibe & comfort feeling that you'd get from your local pub, which is rare for me, so was a highlight of my trip being in the winter cold. Warm lighting inside, SUPER friendly & helpful staff (injured my acl, bartender was really helpful in helping me pack things up, had a nice chat!) Bangers & mash were unreal, sausages had an intense flavour, so don't skip on that one. Portion for the parmy was giant, & I was decently impressed. Cocktails were made with care & tasted great, knocked back 2 & I was done. My background is Belgian, so the overall experience was pretty good. Was just going in for a quick drink, so didn't take proper pictures of the place sadly. Thanks again to all the staff for being lovely & accommodating, was doing it tough mentally for the week, so that was a big help, & the place was a fluke find. Will definitely come back to this place on my next trip to Melbourne!

A delicious late lunch. Loved the steak in particular - a great cook on it and it was juicy and tender. Will come back more often.

Service was very good, friendly and hospitable.

Pleasant basic inner city pub, good food selection with a range of daily food specials. Service is quite slow and rather hit-or-miss .. the bar is frequently unattended. Open for lunch on Mondays which is a big bonus since many inner city pubs aren't.

Returning after lockdown the Castle remains much the same ... the food is acceptable but the service rather clueless - it was a freezing cold wet day but all the doors propped open !! - when asked the staff said they needed to check with the manager about closing the door - no heating running and patrons were wear jackets to stay warm ... clearly "hospitality" is a mystery to them.
