Within Melbourne’s oldest pub, originally Mac’s Hotel, Captain Melville is a window into the history of the city. Past the Victorian façade is a front bar with banquette seating.
A large communal dining hall is revealed behind the front bar, decorated with steel tent structures, a modern take on the hospitality of the Gold Rush era.
The food ethos is pub food, done well, sourced from ethical and sustainable Victorian farms and producers. The menu focuses on communal, casual eating, with shared dishes, steaks, snacks, and of course, the pub classics, using house-made ingredients where possible.
