A fresh take on Melbourne's great pub scene, Burnley Brewing serves fresh, house-brewed beers, natural-focussed wines and relaxed gastropub fare 7 days a week.

Burnley Brewing's modern Australian menu spans lunch, dinner and bar snacks, with kid-friendly options for the early crowd and a late night selection for those wanting a feed after most of Bridge Road has gone to bed.

American-inspired bar snacks and burgers are the perfect partner to our extensive draft beer offerings. Sticky lamb ribs, Southern fried or hot & sticky wings and a barramundi burger are just some highlights. Those seeking a lighter fare can go for hand-rolled pastas, stone-fired pizzas, seafood or share plates, with vegan options to boot.

Very nice pub on the eastern fringes. Did not have to fight for a place to stand like in the city. Great beer in reasonable price.

The fish and chips which were a special menu item were very disappointing, the batter was limp. The staff were as always really lovely and the quiz was good.

Burnley burger for $27 ( including bacon ) was expensive. The patty was really good but the rest of the burger was very average. Salad with beef was great but still overpriced. Took a long time for meal to arrive with no explaination as to why. Waitress did come up at end and give me 2 drink vouchers. No area for smokers.

I love Burnley Brewing, not only do they have great food, but their beers are wonderful! Tuesday night is a great night to go as they also have free trivia and loads of prizes. The staff are lovely and I've never regretted booking a table.

Sadly the booking never eventuated as the place was double booked from a 30th. We were given free round of drinks and 2for1 beer vouchers on the next visit. Lucky next door The Bridge Hotel took us in for dinner. Would still go back to Burnley Brewing as these things do happen.

Great food and good wine list. Good service. Good value for money. Enjoyed the complimentary house beer sampler. Noisy pub vibe so we enjoyed the booth seating so we could enjoy our meal and still hear conversation. Would definitely recommend.

Great find this place: lovely food, great beer, but despite being a Brewery has a very good wine and spirit list. ALSO despite being a brewery it was nice and warm: definite plus on a cold Melbourne night! It does get a bit noisy, but this should not be enough to put you off: definitely worth a look!

Great service. Delicious, quality pizzas. Reasonable price. Great beer selection. Kid friendly in early evening times. Two slight negs - that they had run out of a few beers that we were hoping to taste, and I could have done without the sports screens. But all in all, a great night.

Beer is great, especially the coffee number.
Was a little underwhelmed by the food though, given the menu descriptions. My steak was a bit tough (medium), duck fat spuds soggy and jus not very nice. Was not very excited by marble sized donuts balls.
All in all not a bad place with friendly staff.

Hi. We had people from out of town with us that love beer. Beer great. Service was fabulous by one staff, however lacking from other staff. My husband broke a glass of wine into my meal. It was replaced as was the meal after we bought the glass to someone’s attention. Will definitely go back. Five stars
