Description: Welcome to Fitzroy Town Hall Hotel! Fresh new life has been pumped into this classic public house by chef Sean Donovan and his team. A series of cosy and intimate beautifully curated spaces offering a wide range of drinking and dining experiences have been created. The venue offers four distinct areas, a traditional yet stylish public bar complete with vintage tiling, wood panelling and a snug offering premium craft beverages and casual dining spaces. The bistro dining room has a hunting lodge feel with rich tartans, textured wallpaper and ambient lighting alongside a juxtaposing light, green and lush conservatory feel dining area. Exclusive private dining is offered in the old wine cellar and is perfect for a range of special occasions from intimate wedding parties to corporate events. The upstairs level has been restored to its former glory to offer a flexible and accommodating space. This gorgeous area will cater to dining, functions, bar and lounge areas and access to the balcony which overlooks Johnson Street. Fitzroy Town Hall Hotel offers a variety of generous, quality driven, unpretentious dining experiences as well as accommodating those who simply wish to come in, pull up a bar stool and enjoy a nice cold beer! Our menu focuses on seasonal, fresh, artisan ingredients with a European flavour. Premium beef and seafood, smokey wood bbq and rotisserie echo Donovan's rustic and generous yet finessed style of cooking. Ultimately our goal is to recreate the ambiance of the quintessential corner pub that offers excellent food with Donovan's well-known generosity in portions and flavour.

Had a wonderful evening with family at this establishment - excellent food, well presented, delicious and reasonably priced. Service was constant, even though it was a busy evening we had all or requests met in reasonable time and friendly service. Loved the selection menu in italian made for an entertaining evening.
Only down side was that parking proved a challenge as there is limited off street parking and most in the immediate area is permit parking. So book early or catch a cab.

Definitely the best meal I had during my week in Melbourne, and in fact definitely one of the best meals ever. Excellent menu with some fantastic specials. So many specials too! The food was delicious,beautifully presented. The service was superb- friendly and quick. I had a fig and goats cheese starter which was divine, and a cod special. Superb. Would absolutely recommend.

A great place for a special celebration. I have been there before last year for a pre Christmas feast with two other friends and Stuart (owner) and Harry(chef) looked after us with the friendliest and most professional service.
Was there last Saturday for my birthday dinner with 4 other friends. Superb food. We advised Stuart that there was a gluten intolerant diner and pescatarian (me) and pretty much everything that came out was amazing. I love the tuna and the snapper. But we also had the quail, duck, prawn risotto, salmon special, ravioli and a few different salads. Everything was superb! Well I did not have the meat but the seafood esp the tuna dish was a fantastic. I had the chocolate pudding which finished off a great birthday feast.
Must recommend the apple martinis as well!
Thanks for a fantastic birthday feast Stuart and Harry. Will be back for sure.
