HOT: The Court House Hotel, ‎ 86-90 Errol St, North Melbourne

The Court House Hotel 44 Errol Street North Melbourne

Every year for the past 30 or so years, a group of men have met up at The Court House on the eve of the grand final. They don’t have much to do with each other the rest of the year, but their annual catch up has been sacred through toddlers, mortgages, receding hairlines and retirement.

The Court House is that kind of place – a cosy, convivial local boozer where the friendly barmen chat to you as they pour your pint, the sort of pub where everyone knows your name. In addition, they serve wholesome, no-frills pub grub in the flocked-carpet bar and a Mod-Oz menu in the more austere and elegant dining room.

On the barman’s recommendations, we opted for bangers and mash ($19) and a steak pie ($19). They were simple, hearty meals – the pork sausages were cooked to perfection, juicy and bursting with flavour, while the flaky pie pastry was obviously house-made with loads of butter. There were a lot of other tempting items on the menu and RM and I loved the atmosphere of the buzzing pub, so we’ll definitely be back.

  1. Oh I lived in Errol Street for many years and I can vouch that this hotel is just the coolest. Also try the Post Office Hotel up the road. It is owned by an eccentric ex Solicitor and he has a passion for music of the 1970’s. He does a great breakfast.

  2. Now! Here I am in South East Asia and I am writing about the great location in my home town. The Court House hotel is the place to be seen and often heard in North Melbourne. Furthermore, as Mark stated the Post Office is also another low key,but great hotel for a casual and fun evening.

  3. “The Court House Hotel” sounds interesting after reading this post. I would like to visit the place once with my fellow students after finishing our project works. I wish to have our send off from such a friendly environment !! Thanks for sharing.

  4. That picture looks mouthwatering. I do have a sweet tooth. I am in Southeast myself at the moment and might head to Australia. The Court House sounds like a good place to chill out.
