Food was disappointing and over priced for what we got

The food was amazing, the pub has different parts to it so you can listen to live music, eat a great meal or sit I. The garden area.

Over 20 craft beers on tap. Definitely a fabulous place to go.

Sunday was packed and the kitchen did a great job keeping up with all the tables. The Gent that served us for lunch was great and friendly. Soooo many delicious beers on tap here and on rotation. Recommend booking in advance so that you dont miss out. Courtyard is awesome on a sunny day.

The Taphouse is one of our favourite places in Melbourne. It had something for everyone, all of the time. Come for the incredible beer list, stay for the food, ambiance, staff and wines!

Really enjoyed the steak night special. Very tasty and great value for money. Our excellent and quirky waitress "Goofy" was a gem and so helpful on on the ball.
See you again soon.

The booking was non existent!! Tried many times to confirm the booking with the local tap house and they didn’t have the decency of calling me back with a confirmation via in person, email etc.. I then had to arrange my wife’s birthday lunch somewhere else last minute. Looks like the local tap house is getting complacent and won’t be around long enough if they keep up with this behaviour

Great location. We were made to feel very welcome. Staff were friendly and happy and eager to assist. Food was yummy. Trivia was a hoot - even though we came second last. Recommended for a great fun time with friends.

Great roof top bar with a huge range of craft beers and the food is great.
I would recommend booking a table if the weather is nice as it can get busy.

Went for a 50th birthday dinner and drinks. Amazing range of quality beers. Food was good, service good and live blues/soul/R&B/reggae music downstairs after dinner was tight, tasteful and very well played. Overall the place has some rustic style, is laid back and unpretentious. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

Food was great, as was the atmosphere. But the stand out was the staff. We were down a person and I’d tried to let the place know but couldn’t. Instead of being made to feel bad, as some places do, the staff member was lovely about it and quietly dealt with it. All staff were friendly, helpful and all round lovely. Thanks!

If you love a cozy atmosphere, good food, great beer and wine, and, be able to converse at normal volume, then you will love this place as we did. We ate upstairs where there is a great dining area and a fantastic outside area. Though it is upstairs so you'd need to consider this if access is an issue. I happily recommend this venue.

Great place to catch up with friends. We had 2 kids under 3 with us and although there was no kids menu it was still fairly kid-friendly. Mac n cheese on the menu was a perfect dinner for them. Loads of beer choices and good wine. Food was pub grub and very tasty.
