Pub
A corner pub split in two with a cobblestone laneway running straight through the centre – it doesn’t get more quintessentially Melbourne than this. The Bridge Hotel cleverly merges dynamic design and inspired architecture with the warmth and comfort of a traditional Victorian pub to deliver the unique combination of an old school pub with new school thoughts.

Enjoy a delicious and tantalising menu made with quality Australian produce. Sit back and relax with our happy hour drink specials, six days a week. Dance up a storm every Friday and Saturday night with Melbourne’s finest musical talent spinning until late. Party in private in one of our our many functions spaces.

What are you waiting for? We’ll see you at the bar.

Good food and service, just a bit noisy with three young kids next to us. The bridge is always a favourite though

Loved coming here on a Tuesday or Wednesday with my partner when we lived in Richmond. Now it’s a longer drive but still happy to come back, the food is always great! Lovely to be able to come in again.

Just a shame you guys closed so early. Last drinks called just before 11 but there were many tables left and all well paying customers.

We enjoyed the venue, just not sure whether we’d go back since 11am close on a Saturday night is ridiculous

Love to catch up with friends / family at The Bridge. Great atmosphere , excellent service from cheerful staff. Comprehensive wine list .Mid week specials are amazing value. Only gripe on recent visits is the tap beer not being as cold as l remember. Not good on a hot night if you are drinking Pints , otherwise pretty hard to beat

Booked for Sunday night ftdinner for the family table of four.
Received acceptance and email confirmation and got everyone to turn up to find the place closed.
No sign up for Sunday hours or advice to say they don't open on Sundays so had to scramble to find somewhere else to go

Don't take bookings and confirm if you aren't open!!!

Thanks Dan and his staff for an enjoyable meal
Our little guy (nearly 6) was treated with much respect by Dan and his staff when he was ordering and when he paid the bill.
We shared some delicious plates of food all served promptly, it was loud and busy but service was impeccable.

Table booked for 6:30 which we got to on time we were eating our dinner by 6:45 and gone by 7pm. Felt rushed dinner tasted like it was leftovers from lunch. Overall not a very pleasant experience. Have been before and it was so much better.

The choice of food from starters to mains is very broad and certainly gets the taste buds jumping in the mouth. More lighting would be great otherwise it was a great evening

Th noise was overly loud....there was a DJ already playing at 7.45! This is a time when people are still dining and the music should have been quite a bit quieter! We ordered and when the food came it was really disappointing. How can you get a cheeseburger so wrong? The meat pattie itself was thick, dry and tepid at best. It was the chewiest burger I have had. The bun was cold - even though it was toasted....the chips were tepid. My husband said send it back, but due to the noise of the music and other customers, I just wanted to get out of there ASAP and I couldn’t be bothered as I probably would have ended up with more of the same! My husband had fish and chips which were pretty average - the fish wasn’t fresh and had probably been frozen at so,e time in its life.....it was pretty dead on the plate! Flavor wise was average. We tried the Bridge Hotel and we definitely will not be returning for food...maybe a drink as you can’t go wrong there!
