Cute and fun, with admirable dedication to an all-Victoria kitchen and bar menu, although not a serious beer bar. The tap selection was a little weak. Still, a good little pit stop. The menu emphasizes creative vegetarian pub grub, well executed with ample filling portions.

Great use of what has been available to them. Not a huge tap or bottle list and most of the food is vegetarian, but it works well. Shows you can have an arty take on things without being pretentious like Cookie. Decent prices. Not a stand out location but worth ducking in to.

A brilliant beer bar located in Fitzroy, the focus is an eco-friendly establishment with only Victorian beers and wines on offer. A decent tap range and a good selection of bottles. Part owner Andrew has come from the Taphouse and as a result knows beer so expect some interesting beers to show up over time. The food is purely vegetarian if that’s your thing, and I had a delicious pumpkin & leek risotto. Very chill place with lounges on two floors and heated outdoor area. Enjoyed a couple of visits here. My only gripe is that the beers are served too cold but other than that it’s great value and good people too.
