Victoria Hotel Melbourne

The iconic Victoria Hotel in Yarraville has proudly reopened its doors, unveiling a much-anticipated $2.5 million renovation. This transformation introduces a brand-new beer garden and a delightful children’s play area, enhancing its reputation as a family-friendly destination in the region.

For the first time in its history, the pub now boasts an expansive beer garden that can accommodate up to 170 guests. This newly designed space features comfortable picnic table seating among lush greenery, a dedicated outdoor bar, and an impressive children’s playground. These additions solidify The Victoria Hotel’s status as the go-to venue for family-friendly dining in the community, designed with the needs and desires of its patrons in mind.

Venue Manager Anthony Cook expressed his excitement about the renovation, stating, “It’s exciting to finally open the new beer garden and kids’ play area for our patrons. This well-deserved renovation brings modernised features, tailored spaces for all ages, and so much more to our local, meaning it will continue to be a space for all to enjoy.”

In addition to the beer garden, the renovation brings a refreshed bistro and a brand-new adjoining kids’ play area, replete with interactive features to keep the young ones engaged. The children’s area is a miniature representation of Yarraville itself, including a Yarraville Sun Theatre feature wall, an interactive train & kiosk, reading nooks, tech corners, drawing stations, a soft play area, and much more.

The culinary experience at The Victoria Hotel has also been elevated, with a refreshed menu featuring delicious share-style plates, pizzas, and pub classics, including Lamb Skewers with cucumber yoghurt and herb salad, Popcorn Shrimp Tacos with avocado and salsa, and an array of fresh pizzas. Not forgetting the little ones, there are dedicated menu options for seniors and kids, along with soft serve ice cream and DIY toppings.

The weekly specials and events are set to keep the locals happy with a range of offerings like $20 Lunch Deal from Monday to Friday, $25 Steak Night on Tuesdays, Parma Night on Wednesdays with a charitable component, Trivia & Pizza Nights on Thursdays, and weekend live music adding to the lively atmosphere. Kids enjoy free meals on Mondays and special entertainment on Sundays, making The Victoria Hotel a central hub for community activities and enjoyment.

A special Locals Launch Weekend is scheduled from the 12th-14th of April, promising an exciting line-up of activities, music, and culinary delights to celebrate the renewal of this beloved venue. Attendees can look forward to free BBQ, amazing giveaways, live music, free menu tasters, and a wide array of children’s entertainment, among others.
