    Such a happy and welcoming vibe, with fantastic service, delicious meals (love the roast of the day) and live music in the beer garden. What's not to love!

    Took forever to get service, once we were in we ordered immediately as we knew what we wanted. I came here 2 weeks ago with mates and ordered the steak and chips which was amazing. So my wife wanted the same- it came out and the steak was different quality and chips were reheated shop quality. Luckily I had a photo of my last experience to compare, really embarrassing. Different chefs?

    Simply fantastic food and a wonderful atmosphere. The staff were exceedingly friendly and could not do enough to help. The decor is that of a real Pub with a fantastic feel to it - could easily have spent the whole day here. Will definitely be returning again.

    Go to the Palace if you care about great beer on tap. Mexican Palma and Pie of the day are consistently excellent at soaking up the golden elixir of life.

    Unpretentious, dive like little bar a short walk from home, but really really good food and super chill environment and dogs are welcome! Just wished that we could’ve sat in the bigger courtyard but there was a function so it’s just our luck! Will definitely be returning again, we’ve come a few times now

    We were more than happy to support the Palace where we have had many great nights before. The food was great as usual with the steak and the mash being highlights. With table service prevailing because of Covid-19, this did impact on drink service from time to time.

    Great vibe and super friendly staff, highly recommend! Family friendly yet great place to have a pint with some friends. The atmosphere of an old school pub is amazing :)

    It was our first time to visit The Palace Hotel. We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and all staff are friendly. My partner loves parma and he said the Parma from The Palace Hotel would be the best. We would love to come back there to try other meals.

    The Palace has been our go-to friday pub lunch for YEARS. Due to the pandemic this year and so much working from home we hadn't been there in MONTHS and MONTHS - finally we were able to do so today and The Palace hasn't missed a beat.. The same best-in-melb pies and excellent range of beers on tap. Very satisfied ????????

    Service was absolutely terrible. We had 1 female waitress that was attentive but the rest were rude and slow. It took longer to get our menus then our food and when we asked for our menus after at least 15 minutes were told “we will be with you in a moment”. Menus should have been presented when seated! It took over 20 minutes for me to received the drink I ordered. I ordered my drink before the rest of my table and received mine last. When I asked if we could finally order the waiter was snappy and short. We were also seated to eat right next to the toilet which stunk. So every time the door opened it smelled like a male urinal. The food was good for the most part, but this was overshadowed by the terrible table service. Would not recommend or go back.

    This place is as cozy as it gets the outside seating is ideal, clean and comfy. The service is great, it felt as though we were spending the afternoon in an uncles backyard. Food was great too
