A sports pub at heart, the Vaucluse Hotel has a huge big screen, as well as loads of TAB facilities. Perfect when the footy or cricket is on, and worth mentioning for its really cheap counteries.
We dine at Vaucluse regularly before or after Melbourne Storm games. The food is very reasonably priced and we haven't had a bad meal yet! The dining and bar area is quite small and it can get very crowded when sports are on locally. The service has always been great.

Meals are good value for money at $12, large selection of beer on tap as well as by the stubby, well decorated and prime location for pre drinks before hitting the city or for quiet drinks with mates.

Cool, relaxed and trendy. Awesome atmosphere before a big game at the MCG with a Richmond old school pub feel. Meals are excellent and good value for money.

The Vaucluse underwent a renovation a while ago now and although it still has all the TAB facilities they are separate from the re-vamped front bar area which is now a nice social setting and includes a great dining area. The meals are fantastic and they have recently introduced an extensive $10 meal menu. The drinks are very reasonable and the staff are still very friendly. More locals and sports goers in the evening and daytime mostly would cater for those weary shoppers.
