Stumbled across the Lincoln Hotel after a trip to the Old Melbourne Gaol (also worth a visit) and so glad we did. The staff were super friendly and the pub had a great range of craft beers with $8 pint specials between 12 and 6pm....More

Spent a very pleasant afternoon and evening down this pub. Excellent range of beers to enjoy, with several different gins to tuck into afterwards. The food was very tasty - the mustard prepared on the premises was a delightful addition to the bangers and mash!

This hotel was only a couple of blocks from where we were staying & became our local!! Probably call it a Gastropub with craft beers. Food excellent, although perhaps a tad blokey but the tempura fish with potato salad went down well with us ladies...More
