The Terminus Hotel is an iconic Melbourne gastro pub that has been part of the Fitzroy community for nearly 50 years. Offering 16 rotating craft beer taps and a full dining room menu, you can have the best of both worlds as you catch up with mates or watch a game. The venue has a front bar, dining room and upstairs sports bar so there's something for everyone.
This is one of my favourite pubs in Melbourne, if only because it is on my way home from work and close to two railway stations (so I get off at Clifton Hill, go and have a beer, and then jump back on the train at Rushall). When I first came here there was only a restaurant, a front bar, and some tables out on the street, but almost overnight a craft beer bar opened up which pretty much changed the entire dynamic of this place. In addition to the craft beer bar, they also opened up a pretty decent beer garden out the back (which is a much better place to have a beer than out on the street). Mind you, it is not the cheapest of pubs around, and the bouncers appear around 9:00 pm to start regulating who comes in, but it is still a pub that I love to visit for one of the many (and ever changing) craft beers on tap.
Surprise, surprise, surprise. You enter this place thinking it is just another pub. That you will have a good meal at a good price but nothing special. Several hours later, when you eventually leave, you are still going on about what a great time you had. What fabulous food. What fun entertainment. There are not many pubs which, to me, stand out but this is by far the leader of the pack. You must go and find out yourselves, and if you see me there, say hi. Coz I vill be back
This place is sensational! On a Monday night in the inner northern suburbs we are devoid of any decent restaurants being open. Seeing a welcoming light on a cold Melbourne evening, we approached the Terminus Hotel for a quick bite. We were not expecting much more than the usual pub fare, but what we received was surprisingly spectacular. We ended up enjoying almost 3 delicious hours eating fabulous comfort food.read more
