Pub
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

Absolutely loved coming here last night. The burgers are fire!! The floor manager is a legend! She spoke to me and my mate and had a good conversation, super nice! Will come back quite often for the local pub meal as a first preference. 10/10!

Unfortunately we didn’t stay for our meal, because despite making a booking for a regular table, we were seated at the bar, which isn’t suitable to comfortably eat a meal as it’s too high for the barstools. I was really looking forward to having one of your specials again before the menu changed, so we were very disappointed. We went to the Cricketers Arms instead.

Hi Louis - we're so sorry for the miscommunication. It was our intention to move you to your table once it became available. It was the eve of lockdown, diners were keen to hold on to their tables, it was a tricky night to manager table turnover. We did speak to the ppl sat at your table and then come back to the bar to update you but you’d gone! Honest mistake, hope we haven’t lost you for good, hope to see you back soon - the specials are delicious

Prince Alfred has an attractive eating are. We ate pulled beef burgers that were ok and the chips were great. Some salad would have made the meal more balanced. Beers were interesting and the wine list was ok. But it was sooo noisy, music way too loud.

Shame the food was terrible, re-heated and still cold on the inside. The oil the chips were cooked in tasted old.
Booked to sit at the bar, but the seats are too low so had to stand to eat the food.

Beer was good

I always enjoy going to the Prince Alfred, either for a meal (as they are always great) or just a drink as they have an extensive, and constantly rotating, range of craft beers (on tap and in 'tinnies'). Our meal on Sunday was excellent. We chose from the specials board, I had gnocchi with 3 cheese sauce and my husband has the scotch fillet steak. My gnocchi was lovely, and my husband said his steak was the best that had eaten anywhere for a long time. Tom, Anna and their team are always super friendly and look after their patrons really well. They are always happy to let us taste any of the new beers on tap, and provide recommendations if we're looking for something new and/or different. If you're looking for a great pub in Port Melbourne, "PAs" should definitely be on your list.

The service is always good and very friendly. We went the Chefs specials and the food was outstanding. If we had received these meals in one of Melbourne's top fine dining restaurants we would have been impressed. The quality was second to none and the beer selection is amazing. We cant wait to head back again.
