This Brunswick pub located toward the top end of Sydney Road has been around for yonks. It has had a few little makeovers in its storied past, but an old school boozer it remains. Peer over the large, curved bar in the main room and order some craft brews and classic pub grub before running out to the turfed beer garden to soak up some sun and catch a little live music gig.

And come winter, the locals head indoors (with the bands) for long nights of drinking, eating and playing either pool or table tennis. It's one of the best Melbourne pubs any day of the year.
