    Great pub, nice atmosphere and menu is great too. I think if they improve their barista services it will tick every box for a rewarding dining experience

    We’re regular diners at The Railway Hotel and have always found the food and service to be good. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the food is excellent and good value for money. It has a relaxed atmosphere and is not rowdy. Definitely recommend the place.

    Great pre Christmas night out with two families. Food was great and sitting in the courtyard was perfect for the sometimes loud children.

    The beer garden is a lovely, casual oasis. Service really good with friendly, attentive staff. Meals across our group ranged from average to very good. Would return.

    Super relaxed pub with friendly and helpful staff, while still complying with Victorian government restrictions. Staff were great at every point of contact- booking, changing booking (twice!) welcome, service during and after the meal. Good range of pub classics and steaks on the menu, and great beer garden to enjoy a relaxed meal while catching up with friends after shutdown.

    Steak was a bit overdone as I ordered medium rare, the sweet potato fries and the mushroom gravy was too salty ... However, the service was good, staff friend.

About the restaurant

An Absolute Classic

This is a pub-goers pub. A classic. The Railway Hotel in South Melbourne sits proudly on the corner of Ferrars Street and echos the pubs of old. It’s a destination for locals who are looking for a cold beer and a good steak (especially on Wednesdays when $15 steak night is on). The art-deco décor hasn’t changed since the Railway was built in 1968, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.The seasonal menu is stacked with classics and topped up with some influence from America's deep south. The hot wings and brisket compliment the large smiling face of Elvis in the back bar. Wine barrels have been converted in to large tables, providing the prefect space to try the sharing platter and a few drinks whilst watching the footy on a Friday night. For after work drinks, dinner with friends or family or a lazy Sunday session, check out the Railway Hotel.

Best dish: Porterhouse steak with sweet potato fries
