Pub grub of reasonable quality, good atmosphere and layout. Pokies and sports bar available for those who want it. Handy venue opposite Southern Cross Station.

Bland unremarkable pub grub Parmas were tiny compared to most, steaks were small, chewy and dry Seafood was overcooked Salads - a heaped pile of lettuce is not a salad Poor, boring selection of tap beers The staff were smiling and helpful and were the best part of our lunch

About The Mail Exchange Hotel

Signed, sealed, delivered - I’m yours Mail Exchange Hotel. This historic Melbourne venue is the perfect spot for wining and dining - open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. Housed on the lower ground level of the old Mail Exchange building this place is steeped in history and old school grandeur. As soon as you enter you’ll be sold - no need to return to sender. If you’re feeling peckish hit the lounge and order a few snacks, but if you’re after something more substantial sidle into the bistro and dine on pub grub classics that have had their flavour dial turned right up. This place is ideal for groups, so get your mates together and get ready to drink and dine in style. Best dish: chicken parmagiana: panko and parmesan crumbed chicken breast, roasted tomato Napoli sauce, virginia ham and mozzarella cheese + chips and salad.
