Had a snack and drinks here during our tour of 240 1/2. It's a nice little place with good drinks and cozy atmosphere.

This place is closed for renovations as of December 30, 2015. Would have been nice to know on TripAdvisor before we walked over here. Sounds great from the other reviews and the ally way is really nice.

Whilst the lunch and dinner menus left me cold, the $25 freeflow bellini and bloody Mary brunch was not just excellent value but delicious! Avocado and bacon on toast, excellent eggs benedict, scrambled eggs and a huge pork and egg pie are available in mini portions to see you through a leisurely afternoon of drinking and catching up with friends....

We went for the weekend brunch with drinks. For $25 you get 5 or 6 courses of breakfast - good size portions too so make sure you're hungry. We had Bellini's but you can also choose bloody mary's. The Bellini's needed a little more peach puree. The breakfast courses were good, simple food. I couldn't eat the final course as... More

It's been nearly 2 years since we visited this restaurant. Public House is a misnomer as it is very unlike a traditional British pub. Sure, there is a long bar, but there is no draught or canned beer. However, we went for lunch this time. The menu is fairly small, and although a "Boozy Lunch" offer appears on it, it... More

(+) - Small & cute modern restaurant - Great options on the menu - Friendly staff (+/-) - On the expensive side (-) - Try to avoid weekend brunches. You'll meet drunk expats being loud at their table.

If St 240-1/2 sounds baffling, just look for the alley nestled close to the Wine Warehouse, and there you'll find Public House. I've eaten here three times, and have tried the fish & chips, the shepherd's pie and Sam's bangers & mash – each of which were excellent "pub grub" with a boutique touch. Prices are reasonable, given that next... More

The place is small but has an intimate feeling to it, fitting with the hidden alley way where it is located. You wouldn't know about this place unless somebody has told you about it or brought you there. The food is good, but could take awhile. The menu is not big, but they do have weekly specials. Recommend for a... More
