Friday Night Drinks - Captain Melville

34 Franklin Street, Melbourne

For over 150 years, the bluestone walls of this famed establishment have provided solace and sustenance to Melbournians and visitors alike. Now housing Captain Melville, it has become the destination for accessible dining, imbibing and revelry – all within Melbourne’s oldest public house.

CAPTAIN MELVILLE was a man with a devilish spirit and a sense of adventure. He was transported from Scotland to Van Diemen's Land at the age of 15 but rehabilitation was not in his nature and he constantly escaped — facing the wrath of the courts each time he was apprehended.

So meet Nicole at the reserved tables.
Suffer no longer from scarcity of choice for they provide pleasing liquor supplies to quench the thirst of each and every passing party.

Victorian wines and beers are showcased alongside iconic Australian and international varieties. Don’t expect to see any Cosmopolitans on the menu; the cocktails are old-fashioned with names paying playful reference to Captain Melville’s era.

Asfar as food goes, think pub food, done well. All food is sourced from ethical and sustainable Victorian farms and producers of the region traversed by the rebel bushranger himself. The menu focuses on communal, casual eating, with shared dishes, steaks, snacks, and of course, the pub classics – all using house-made ingredients where possible. Head chef, Shayne McCallum, who has earned his stripes at many iconic Melbourne establishments clearly presents his mission to create high quality pub food for all.
