There’s nothing quite as comforting as pub grub. No matter what you’re craving, we’ve got your options covered with some of the best pub meal deals in town. 

Lunch Beers at Naughtons

What's better than a classic beef burger, served medium rare and loaded with pickled onion, aioli, bacon and cheese? When it comes with a free beer, of course. Head to Naughtons, slam down a lunch burger and the crew will shout you a house beer (or wine, if you're feeling fancy). Other menu specials include pie night (Tuesday), steak night (Wednesday) and Sunday roast.

Parma and pint night at Fortress

The pub classic that’s always a winner. For a less-than-traditional experience, head on down to the medieval-inspired tavern at Fortress Melbourne. On Tuesdays you can get a parma and a pint for just $20. Hang around to play one of 70 types of boardgames or test your skills over at arcade alley. Want more options? Check out our full parma guide here.

Happy Meals at the Tessie Pearl

Head to the lively Tessie Pearl Hotel down on South Wharf and bag yourself a happy meal. For just $18, you can get eight yakitori sticks, one side and a pint or spritz. Plus a Tessie Pearl toy. There’s also a daily happy hour between 4pm and 8pm, with up to 50 per cent off drinks. 

Parma and pint night at The Leveson

North Melbourne is blessed with great pubs, including The Leveson. It’s in a Victorian-era building with a very modern interior. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of old-school pleasure on the menu. Thursday’s your best bet, with a $25 parma-and-craft-pint special. Or you can swap the ale for a glass of wine, cider or a soft drink.

Daily delights at the Clyde

A classic Aussie pub in Carlton, The Clyde Hotel dishes up a hearty meal deal every day of the working week. From Monday's burger and chip deal ($15.90) to Friday night fish and chips (13.90), you won't go hungry. Crack open a cold one and enjoy live jazz on Sunday, then head up to the open-air (and accessible!) courtyard and rooftop space.

Sunday Roast at The Lincoln

Art Deco features aren’t the only things that distinguish The Lincoln from surrounding pubs. The focus on locally-sourced produce and refined gastropub fare attract a regular crowd – especially on Sundays. Boasting a rotating menu of free-range chicken, pork, beef and lamb it’s a true Melbourne icon. $32 gets you all the trimmings plus extra gravy. Make sure you book ahead to guarantee your spot
