We are a pub for all seasons with handsomely decorated surroundings inside and out, a stylish pub with blissful real log fires, snug dining rooms and a beautiful beer garden.
British heritage food and seasonality are championed by our chefs along with a great selection of world wines and local McMullen ale. Sunday roasts are served with our lovingly made Yorkshire puddings but when they’re gone, they’re gone!
Plan your next visit with an exploration of near by sites such as Hatfield House and it’s wonderful park for deer-spotting or the Essendon Country Club perfect for a leisurely round of golf.
Merrick & the team look forward to greeting you soon.
Monday - Thursday 12:00 – 20:30 | Friday - Saturday 12:00 – 21:00 | Sunday 12:00 – 19:30
