Modern Australian
Located on Brighton Road and welcoming guests since the 1800's,
the pub has been through many transformations including a complete refurbishment in 2011.

Today, it is a multi-faceted venue that can cater for many different experiences, anything from casual drinks to family dinners or birthday parties in one of the function rooms.

Grosvenor Hotel prides itself on its commitment to sourcing, ageing and preparing premium cuts of grass fed Victorian beef, which are available in the Bistro, the drive-thru burger bar (STKBB) and to take home from the Grosvenor Grocery & Bottle Shop.

Burgers, Shnitzels, pizza are all good.
Steak....OMG can you overprice a suburban pub anymore than they do here. Give me a France Soir, or Bistro Thierry any day quality wise and they are cheaper. Bistro Guillaume is on par price wise and far better quality wise. Grosvenor is ok for anything but their way way overpriced cuts of meat.

Cosy spot to have lunch on a Sunday. Steaks we had were cooked to order as requested which was great. Quality was also good. Service was friendly. Not the cheapest but not outrageous either.

We had a lovely meal. One of the best steaks I have had in a long time. The service was also very good. I our experience was marred however by our very noisy neighbours. There were lots of young children who were extremely noisy and not supervised by their parents.

We have been to Grosvenor Hotel many times before and we were the people to recommend the rest of our party to go here! What a let down though!
We waited over an hour on our food (all of which were medium or medium-rare steaks) and when we got our food, the chips were over cooked like they’ve been sitting on the hot plate too long! Our steaks were cremated! We were so embarrassed for recommending this place and when we approached staff about waiting so long they rhymed off a script about how long steaks take to cook etc. when really she had no idea what our actual order was! Will never be back. Extremely disappointed. All 7 of us didn’t have a complaint

Third time ive been now... the food and menu was sensational and service was a 4 star she misunderstood the order but overall the place is best bistro pub in Melbourne. Wish we had the heads up about the lamb for two needing an hour prep to order. Just an idea put it on the online menu - 1 hour prep time pre order. Overall awesome ambience, good beers and mostly great food!

cheers

The place is way too noisy - music far too loud, spoiling the experience.
Our whole group agreed that it would be a great local, if not for the excessive noise.

Great place to go catch up with friends. The steak was amazing, melt in your mouth!
Would definitely go there again, a little expensive but worth it for a great steak.

Grosvenor’s steak and cocktail nights are one of the best in the area. Always an enjoyable meal, staff and ambience. Changed menu with more variety is a recent plus. We’ll be back.

We visited the Grosvenor for my nephews bday lunch. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals immensely. The eye fillet steak was cooked to perfection and well seasoned, with hot chips and a fresh salad. The safe we all friendly as well. Will definitely be back!

The food is consistently great but the service has been getting worse over the last few months. It takes forever to get a menu and then the service is very slow. We never got asked if we wanted more drinks and our food took about 40 minutes to come. The staff seemed to fuss over certain tables and then completely forget about other tables.

The food at this restaurant was very tasty and nice size servings. Where we were seated in the bistro the noise was very loud and echoey. Price wise the meals were absolutely well worth it. My only real criticism was the mark up on the wine. Thought I was back in Bali.

Great food, fabulous pizzas but many other tasty options e.g. aged stake. Yummy specials most days!
Great for large groups and celebrations. Good service.
Great big group dinning.

We had fantastic service. There was an error in the beers we had chosen (there should be better beers on tap), we spoke to the gentleman serving us and he fixed it straight away, replaced the beers we were given with the correct ones we ordered.

Good food but the beer selection is woeful these days. Not sure I’d be back based solely on this. No good German beers is a crying shame.

After having a good experience back in August with our family we decided to ask our good friends to come and have dinner with us. We had a 7.30 booking and arrived on time. We found the service extremely slow and the wine list was now very expensive. No cheap wines. Average of $70 for a reasonable bottle. With 4 couples that added a lot to the bill. Unfortunately I don’t think we will be rushing back. I know our friends will not be going back.

The food was fantastic. The service was decent. The only 2 things I could pick on were; there was a group of 10 or so that was sat in the same area with the acoustics of the outside area made it impossible to have a business discussion and $14 extra for chicken added to a caeser salad is absolutely ridiculous.
Overall while expensive you get great food and decent service.

This place has gone down hill in the last 5 months. We had lunch yesterday and it is no where near as good as it was. Toilets were also disgusting, not cleaned regularly. The host was a large man who needed a shower.

Service was very good, the young girl that waited on our table of 6 was excellent. Steak was disappointing in regard to quality and price, did not live up to some of the online reviews. We had guests from the USA and all they wanted was to experience some good Aussie beef, we should have gone to Rockpool or Station Hotel. Better quality and value.
