About the venue

The Castle Hotel is kind of part of the North Melbourne furniture; it’s been there for a while now. This particular bit of furniture though has recently undergone a bit of a facelift. A re-upholstering, if you will, a re-snazzing of its cushions. Basically, it’s had a giant renovation. Under new management, The Castle now boasts a pub-grub-done-fancy dining menu, as well as an especially impressive new dining room vibe.

It’s less “grizzled old man hangs out at the bar”, more “take the kids for dinner” or “young professionals have a beer after work”. Which is a-ok in our eyes. With so much more on offer, including a menu for the little ones, a wine list and an extensive range of local and imported beers, it’s a great place to visit.

The hotel features two spacious levels capable of comfortably accommodating from 30 - 400 guests. Sit down dinner? Check. Cocktail party? Check. Raucous end-of-year office party? Double check. The Castle Hotel is found on Courtney Street, North Melbourne. A little more specifically, that’s at the intersection of Courtney, Arden and Chetwynd streets. The 55, 57 and 59 trams are nearby, as is North Melbourne Station.

Typical suburban pub located in North Melbourne. Stopped in for a quick drink, seems popular with locals. Has an outdoor drinking area which only overlooks the busy roundabout. Drop in if you’re in the area and feeling thirsty.

Myself and my wife both ordered steak sandwich. The meat was juicy and the ingredients fresh. We both agreed they were the best we have had out along with a generous size serve of chips. Also worth mentioning well priced cocktails considering the location of the venue

A delicious late lunch. Loved the steak in particular - a great cook on it and it was juicy and tender. Will come back more often. Service was very good, friendly and hospitable.

Do not pass this place without going in & having a drink & a feed. I’m from Sydney, but this place gave me the vibe & comfort feeling that you’d get from your local pub, which is rare for me, so was a highlight of my trip being in the winter cold. Warm lighting inside, SUPER friendly & helpful staff (injured my acl, bartender was really helpful in helping me pack things up, had a nice chat!) Bangers & mash were unreal, sausages had an intense flavour, so don’t skip on that one. Portion for the parmy was giant, & I was decently impressed. Cocktails were made with care & tasted great, knocked back 2 & I was done. My background is Belgian, so the overall experience was pretty good. Was just going in for a quick drink, so didn’t take proper pictures of the place sadly. Thanks again to all the staff for being lovely & accommodating, was doing it tough mentally for the week, so that was a big help, & the place was a fluke find. Will definitely come back to this place on my next trip to Melbourne!

Both times we have had a meal there they have been lovely. Home made Lasagne. The sauce on the parmigiana is delicious. And really a large parmy!!!!! Bangers and Mash also delicious. Think home made Sausages. Very nice. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great meal.
