Full of traditional charm and dishing up a range of hearty Irish fare, this cosy pub situated in the heart of Brunswick brings a little bit of the Emerald Isle to Melbourne city. Located on Sydney Road, whether it’s for dinner or drinks, The Snug Public House is a popular choice with Melbournians and expats alike looking for some home comforts. Always a popular meeting place, booking a table in advance is recommended!
Excellent food and service. It was nice having the live music there too, although the volume could be turned down a bit as it was difficult to speak to each other across the table.
The Snug is a terrific little pub with good food and entertainment. I have been there a number of times and I am sure that I will be back!
We all know of the typical Irish pub cliches – tackily decorated and brimming with boisterous British tourists straight off of a budget airline flight – but at The Snug Public House in Melbourne you will find none of these things. At this traditional pub on Brunswick’s Sydney Road the food is quality, the atmosphere is joyous and the Jameson flows freely without a shamrock or leprechaun in sight. With exposed brick walls adorned with old-fashioned Irish relics, The Snug Public House is full of authentic character.
On the menu at this much loved Melbourne pub you will find classic Irish dishes like the Irish stew with lamb, root vegetables and cob loaf and bagun agus cabaiste (a pickled pork leg served with creamed potato, black cabbage and parsley cream). We recommend the fish supper, a freshly-caught flake fillet with chips, bread and butter and lashings of HP sauce of course. Wash it all down a Guinness or two, or a wee dram of some Irish whiskey. To grab the best table, make a reservation at this Brunswick pub beforehand.
