The venue is long room that has a theme of Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes and has large tables at the front, an elegant bar in the middle and other chairs for sitting and dining.

Just like the Sherlock, there is great pub grub and an extensive range of beers many served from the big pump handles with some traditional type English ales such as Hobgoblin, ESB and Old Speckled Hen to name a few.

It is a great addition to extend the ever-popular Sherlock Holmes and create Dr Watsons Bar in a similar style.

Melbourne Social Cycling and Breakfast

Federation Square (opposite the main tram stop on St Kilda Road)

Join a group of fellow Melbourne Social Club bike riders for our monthly morning ride.

Our usual ride is around the Capital City trail which is about 32 km long and the ride takes approx 3 to 3.5 hrs including time for brunch and is mainly on sealed bike paths. It requires a reasonable level of fitness (as there are hilly sections) and a suitable bike in good working order.

We may change the ride a little bit this month but the ride will be of similar length and duration.

Meet David and Ian at Federation Square at 9.30 am directly opposite the tram stop on St Kilda Road.

Trivia Night in Melbourne CBD

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine etc. Janet is a well-respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.

Friday Night Drinks in Melbourne CBD

Coopers Inn, 282 Exhibition Street, Melbourne

Come and join the team for some good old fashioned pub fun.

A glorious Victorian triple storey pub on the corner of Exhibition and Lt Lonsdale, the Coopers Inn has traded since 1854, and in a show of defiance resembling contestants on Survivor, may continue to ‘outwit, outplay and most importantly outlast’ those genuine few that remain in this game and operate like this.

The food menu is kept to a minimum, and here is where the pub understands that a fully plated, prepared from scratch main at a reasonable price must be offered to compete with the competition surrounding it. It is good pub grub.

So meet Nicole at the reserved tables.

Day trip to Maldon on the Victorian Goldfields Railway

PTV Hub - Southern Cross Station

Step back in time on the Victorian Goldfields Railway.

Today we will be travelling to the Historic town of Maldon on the Victorian Goldfields Railway's Steam train travelling first class. The town itself was once a thriving metropolis. Maldon's reputation as a picturesque historic town, known for its intact 19th century town centre is well established.

One of the most important late 19th and early 20th century townscapes in Victoria, Maldon began as a gold rush town in 1854 with the discovery of alluvial gold at the base of Mt Tarrangower. It developed as an industrial mining town during the later years of the 1800s. As one of Victoria's richest quartz mining centers, various mines at various times recorded the highest returns in the State. Mining declined in the first years of the 20th century, the last mine of the era closed in 1926, and the town's population and fortunes similarly declined....

We will have 2 hours in Maldon for Lunch at The Kangaroo Hotel before heading back to Castlemaine on the train. Lunch at own expense.

Cost is for the Historic Railways only. Please make sure you have enough money on your Myki Card for the trip to Castlemaine and return. You will need $35 for the return trip

Meet Nicole at the PTV Hub.
