Description: Nestled in the back streets of Prahran you'll find the College Lawn Hotel, a hotel that offers the warmth and welcoming feel of a favourite local. The hotel consists of a lounge bar, public bar, function room, bottle-shop, two sun drenched courtyards and of course a restaurant where the great meals and inexpensive menu are nicely complemented by the friendly atmosphere. Pool tables, happy hours, live sport and slab raffles - if it's not your own local, by the time you leave it will feel like it is. The College Lawn also offers backpacker accommodation and is a favourite for visiting internationals due to both our location and the comfortable, affordable accommodation on offer.

“Hidden gem..”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

My new local & such a beautiful old pub has 2 big open fireplaces.
we've been twice now on tuesday for $13 steaks & may have to make this a weekly occurance.
Can't get those beer battered fries outta my mind!
Staff are friendly, welcoming & very efficient - just a great team of people they have working here.
So many beers on tap also can't go wrong with this venue.

“Better places around”
Reviewed 8 February 2013 via mobile

Food is average, yet pricey for what it is..Beer garden is a few deck chairs on a concrete slab. Better and cheaper places a stones throw away

“let down”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

Went to college lawn on a recommendation. Service was friendly and quick. We all ordered the steaks due to being the Tuesday special. Steaks were cooked well but were terrible cuts of meat. Could have been a great meal but was let down by the meat.
