Great atmosphere pub with good food, and a nice exterior "castle like" stone aesthetic. It can get pretty busy at peak, and sometimes it can be difficult to get a drink at the bar because they're so overrun, but the bands are good. I personally like going on Thursday nights when it is not AS busy, and they have a free Improv Comedy show upstairs. Great to grab a drink and have a laugh at no extra cost. Saw a show there the other night, and it was hilarious.

The grace is a lovely pub in the heart of Collingwood. The DJ’s play an incredible range of music. Whenever I go in on Thursday or Friday, the energy is popping. It’s so nice and refreshing to hear a mixture of throw back tracks and newer age music. Something for everyone. Special mention to the lovely staff who always go above and beyond. The food never misses, decent sizes, great flavours that hit the spot. Fav local imo! Pictured below - spiced lamb special and medium rare steak. Both next level!

The Grace Darling hotel has some good food n' drinks. And fantastic service. The barman recommended the spring chicken dish, and he was spot on. Chicken dinner, chicken winner. The vegetarian/plant based burger w hand cut chips tasted good, too. Served with a yummy Aperol Spritz.

Ordered the vegan Parma which was eggplant for $20 on Tuesday Parma night. Came with chips and a sad passing of what they referred to as salad. Chips were crispy enough with skin till on. Eggplant was crispy on one side but pretty much mush for the rest. Had a strange almost plastic like taste to it too. Might have been the vegan cheese. Definitely had much better eggplant parmas elsewhere. Ordered the calamari with Sichuan pepper for $18. While it was tasty and crispy enough, the serving amount was incredibly small for the price. Was still hungry after both so had to walk down to huxtaburger to grab a $10 burger on tight Tuesday. Bit too noisy inside to have any decent conversation but the tables and stools outside are quite plentiful and there's a nice layout.

My partner read a review that they had the best chicken Parma in Melbourne and it was pretty darn good. Deck is not pretty. Chairs wobbly.
