A good setting for a night out. Great food. Not too pricey. Good atmosphere. Would definately go again.
Food and service are consistently good here. We love the fact that they cater for children and we can relax as a family.
An amazing place to meet friends, eat, drink and be merry! Prices are reasonable, food quality was high, and service was amazing. Highly recommended
Great value, good food.
The set menu was vast and something for everyone.
The establishment had a lot of cool nic nacs
Very good experience. Excellent food and large serves. Very professional, attentive and friendly service.
Wonderful food and service! Great atmosphere would definitely go again..
Excellent food and value for money. Please note we dined using a scoopon deal which had 3 courses plus 2 glasses wine and beer each for $35 total for two people. That aside, we definitely will return to try out the normal menu and drinks list. Ashleigh our waitress was awesome. Very friendly, good sense of humour and very attentive without being obtrusive. A real gem. Though is was a little quiet at lunch, can't wait to return for dinner and really soak up the atmosphere.
Food was average, meat came with no sauce and tasted burnt, the place was very loud and hard to hear anything but loud talking from others..however was good value and staff was nice
Great food and service! Delicious steak and dessert. Highly recommended!
A friend gifted a voucher. The lunch experience was very nice. Service was awesome. Food was very good. Dessert was held off until later at our request. Worth the wait. Ambience was very good.
We really enjoyed this. Went with a Scoopon deal, may never have found this place otherwise, but will definitely be back! The food was delicious, well priced, great atmosphere too. The beer garden upstairs is awesome!
Awesome and cheap
When we arrived the Shaw Davey Slum was quite busy, meals weren't super quick but they were worth the wait, the waitress was a lovely girl who was very helpful and polite
Food was delicious and incredible value for money. Was a bit noisy in the restaurant but when we retreated upstairs to the beer garden we were quite comfortable! Will be back!
Everyone who served us was awesome and the ambience is really relaxing, good for a fun night out. The food was definitely value for money :)
Not large servings but really good food. Probably up-market pub food. Only downside is that it's very cramped. Otherwise, brilliant value for money.
Came for the Scoopon deal and Shaw Davey Slum did not disappoint! Fast service with a smile and food was great value! Had the tasting platter entree (Arancini ball was really good), steak for main and the peanut butter cheesecake for dessert.
Curious to try the parma’s here, might have to make another booking 😊
Came here with a Scoopon and was thoroughly impressed by the wait staff level of expertise and pleasantness. The ordering process went smoothly and the entrees were unique and quite nice.
My wife and I both had the steak, and unfortunately it wasn't medium rare, just a tad over. But the wedges that came with it were phenomenal.
The peanut butter cheese cake was very nice, unfortunately the portion was quite small and I could have definitely have gone for a bigger slice.
Overall it was a good family meal out, and I definitely recommend this place to everyone.
The staff were very friendly and the service was timely. Highly recommend this pub.
Good food and nice casual environment for dining. Good for family and kids.
Great customer service, very attentive to requests and really delicious food.
Delicious food and delightful staff, excellent value for money ... can highly recommend
we went to shaw davey slum and it was excellent value for money and the food was great . it was overcrowded but i suppose you have to expect that with the cheap prices
Great value / great food / fabulous pricing & good service - go eat or you're missing out
great food. We were surprised at the quality
Yummy foods. Friendly service, and peanut cheese cake was soo delicious.
Food was yum! Staff were very attentive and friendly. Good value for money, pretty much the only hour that’s not happy hour is from 8-9pm.
Atmosphere and food compliment each other well. Service seemed to be hit and miss during the evening.
As a family with one vegan we are always on the lookout for Sunday lunch places. This place is fantastic, casual and funky at the same time with fantastic customer service. We will be back again and again.
The food was good and came out fairly quick. They had many different types of beer and it was all reasonably priced. The only issue was because it was busy they kept taking the empty beer jugs and glasses off our table even though we were getting refills so we had to keep asking for more.
Still can't get over $7 cocktails and $5 pizzas! If it wasn't so far from home/work would definitely become a frequent flyer.
Great food which we all shared but the service was slow and patchy as there was only 1 waitress.
Good value for money and friendly service. Will be back.
Glad a coffee machine has arrived at the bar, however, when served it came to our table luke warm ... so sad .... hoping for a super hot coffee next time .... Desssert platter is awesome and all meals on the menu are delicious and are good value .....
Not a great experience. Waited 20 mins for table (that was pre booked). Staff ignored us, limited staff on a busy Saturday night. In saying that Rinna was lovely, but 3 of her would have been good. Food was pretty good.
Came here with a great value Scoopon. Quirky, lively place with delicious food, great beer and friendly service. Our waitress was especially helpful and attentive.
Great meal and excellent staff. The service is friendly and prompt and the meal and drinks are great value. My favourite local
Great food and great service at a very good price. The location is also very convenient being very close to the University of Melbourne.
Perfect meal & value. Great location and staff were helpful and friendly
Nice quirky establishment with great food at very reasonable prices. Location was perfect for stays in Carlton and pre or post movie meals. The staff were friendly and helpful and the facility itself was very trendy.
