Had dinner in the beer garden on Monday night with 6 other members of my book club, after booking online. All meals were delicious, the heating was on and it was balmy there despite a cold night outside the pub. Had two bottles of the Heathcote shiraz, which was wonderful, and the staff were very helpful, but not intrusive. Because it's outside and the tables are well-spaced, it's an ideal place for conversation. All good! Would like to try the dining room some time.

Fabulous hidden treasure in the heart of our beautiful neighborhood. Can't wait to take our friends from Sydney there in a couple weeks.

We had a great night at the Standard. Our numbers grew beyond what we had booked, but the staff were so relaxed about it, they made everything workout. Even the cake. The looked after if then brought it out with plates so we could self serve. It was a great venue. Will definitely do it again! Thank you so much.

Great food, great pub. Parma is always a good choice, nice selection of draft beer too. The beer garden put back is terrific if you’re looking for open-air dining

We loved sitting outside under the large canopy. The landscaping of the outdoor area is really successful.
There was just the two of us so we came early when the atmosphere is low key . Food options are good and loved the option of some smaller sized dishes.
This hotel straddles the demographic really well - not a pub with huge plates of steak and chips - and not an expensive gastro style venue. It’s local, attracts a clientele of all ages, offers a good range dishes and does it with just enough of a dash of style. Brilliantly Fitzroy.

I have been visiting the Standard for over 20 years and it is always brilliant from food, beer, wine, service, all aspects and still the best beer garden in Melbourne!
