Top 25 Pubs in Melbourne

This is the 2012 List. You can find the 2013 countdown here and the top 50 pubs and bars of 2014 are here.


Every year we list the best pubs from around Melbourne. This is the 2012 list in all it's glory! There are a few surprises, some old faithful's and some we hope you decide to go and try. We have a bunch of pubs from both north and south of the river, but it seems Fitzroy is still breeding some of the best publicans around town. We check out their beer gardens, their music scene, their first date appeal and of course their beer and food specials. So jump in and start at number 25, The Quiet Man.
