Great local gem in Carlton. Fun gastro pub with great service & yum food

We came with 50% off through dimmi. The food was tasty, though some of the serves were small (and would have been expensive at full price). The specials looked interesting; we'd come back to try those.

The food is normal and the food waiting time is long.

Reasonable meal for the price.

We had one staff member who was sensational from beginning to end. My dad arrived early (about an hour and a half 🤦🏻‍♀️) and then there were 3 adventurous children. Made to feel so welcome and at home. This is a lovely back street, comfortable, down to earth place for dinner or a drink. Highly recommended!

It’s a place redolent of history & memories.

Table was reserved for us in front of the fire. Service was great. Bar staff admitted that they did not have a huge range, so not all cocktails were available...but the chicken parma was VERY good. PS. Watch parking restrictions around the pub.

About Brandon Hotel

Expect the unexpected Pub menus can be pretty uninspired. Not so at the Brandon Hotel, located in Melbourne’s funky inner suburb of Carlton North. Whatever you were thinking you might see on the ‘bites’ menu, it probably wasn’t steamed bao comprising either pork belly with mustard greens and peanut and sticky hoisin or oyster mushrooms with lotus, bean sprouts and wasabi mayonnaise. The haloumi soft taco might also catch your eye, as it did ours. Heading straight towards the larger plates, you’d better try the Brandon’s take on the latest craze with their Americana burger - a true title-contender. Moving towards Asia, the Filipino caramelised pork ribs with coconut rice are sticky and more-ish. And at theBrandon, vegetarians are not left to contend with the basic vegie pasta that are often reluctantly added to ‘meat, meat and more meat’ pub menus. The seven vegetable tagine with couscous and zaalouk salad is so good it might even turn a carnivore’s head! The Brandon continues to delight with its dessert menu. We recommend you finish off the evening with the peanut butter parfait or the raspberry crumble. For a great foodie meal out at a fantastic little pub, head to the Brandon Hotel. Best dish: steak and house salad
