Fabulous Fitzroy is bursting with interesting street art, bars, shops and restaurants. A stone’s throw from bustling Brunswick St is The Standard Hotel on Fitzroy St.

It’s nothing fancy, but a loved-up old pub patronised by a loyal band of customers of all ages. You’ve got to love a local pub on a quiet residential street; well if you’re a Perthite you do, as this is a novelty for us.

The inside of ye olde pub may look a bit ramshackle, but this also gives it charm. Step outside and there’s a modern beer garden that seems to go on forever.

The food menu is what you’d expect from a regular suburban pub. The usual plates of fish and chips, parmigianas, calamari and steak sandwiches, and plenty big serves. A big meal and a fair price. One of my buds, Prince, managed to polish off his ginormous plate of chicken parma.

Craig couldn’t go past the massive serve of fish and chips that he’d enjoyed several times before.

The eggplant parma was my choice for dinner, and it went down a treat with my glass of Vic pinot grigio. I’ve had better eggplant, but for $18 it was perfectly acceptable. I wasn’t expecting haute cuisine, but I was expecting tasty pub grub at a fair price, and this is what we all got. Bang for your buck.

There is a reasonable selection of beers on tap and wines by the glass. The Standard has live music several times a week, and welcomes people of all ages. I love all the nooks and crannies in this pub where you can sit and while away a few hours over a few beverages.
