Great Beer
Michael Jordan was the greatest of all time. No doubt. But to say we’re going to be the Michael Jordan of pubs? Tough ask.
How about the Larry Bird of pubs? Remember Bird? White guy, no hops, limited athleticism; but three rings, 12 x an all star, 3 x NBA MVP and a member of Dream Team I on the back of good solid fundamentals. And that’s our commitment to you. Simple things done really well. Larry Bird style. Or as the great man put it “first master the fundamentals”.
The fundamentals of a good pub experience – crisp cold beer, served off a meticulously maintained system into a clean glass; a wine range that’s interesting and not intimidating; food that’s hot, looks good and tastes great; a team who works fast and smile at the same time, welcoming you to the venue like they would their home.
That’s our commitment. Hold us to it. If we don’t provide you a Larry Bird experience, let us know. Cheers, Alfie x

We all ordered the fish and it was terrible it smelt like ammonia.
So disappointing when you are meeting family after 10 months and really looking forward to a great meal.

Great atmosphere, service and food.
Cannot fault the management team and their staff, why the place is repeatedly full.

This is what a great Melbourne pub looks, sounds, tastes and feels like. You'll feel at home the moment you arrive and sense immediately that you're at a great local pub. Highly recommended.

A casual Monday night in Port Melbourne, a very extensive beer list that we tried a couple of, along with very tasty burgers (fried chicken and tofu). Staff were so friendly and one of the best "covid-times" restaurant experiences we've had since they were allowed to reopen.

Thanks for being open after the covid lockdown. We appreciate it. We loved the attentive service and the food. We didnt know there was going to be live music at the venue. We liked the music style but it was too loud. We had to shout at one another at the table to converse. We will go again, but check what entertainment will be there first.

Absolutely smashing. Think the burgers at Prince Alfred might be my favourite in Melbourne. Staff were absolutely lovely and had good banter even though they were extremely rushed off their feet. This will be a pun on our repeat list for sure.

Very attentive and cheerful service. One member not so keen on his chicken parma, but still ate most of it. Fries were fabulous - crispy and really well seasoned. The tofu burger was really good and a pleasant change from the usual vegan fare.
We did ask for music to be turned down, which it was with no hesitation.
We'll be back.

One of the best pub steaks I've had, and very reasonably priced. Good range of beers, and generally something new to try. Owners are very friendly and engaging.
