With a relaxed, community oriented atmosphere and great pub food, the Brandon Hotel is a beloved destination for Carlton North locals. The charming front bar remains true to the traditional style of the corner pub, and is where the locals head for a quiet pint and a meal, but many also follow through to the dining room where the menu extends beyond average pub fare. The menu offers a number of smaller tapas style options, perfect for sharing, through to a seasonal menu that presents trusted favourites including a chicken parma voted amongst Melbourne's best through to innovative specials, with a focus on multi-cultural modern cuisine and quality produce. Discount does not apply to already discounted daily specials where the price of the meal also includes a drink.

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

First time at this hotel used an Entertainer book voucher. We were made very welcome and were sat beautifully by the fire place. Menu was limited but I liked that as a lot of places menus are too big which makes it hard to choose.

Food and service great. Menu was not at all like the one on website. Duck was fantastic but they ran out (was a special) so not everyone could have it that ordered it.

Moved seriously down market since my previous visit 2 years ago (est) No tables set. Too dark to read menu ( perhaps replace some blown lights bulbs!) . Specials board out of sight. Service quite friendly and efficient but very casual. Food was ok, but atmosphere was so poor that it was too late.

One steak was amazing, the second undercooked at first and then the second not so great. Would go back and give it another try
