Review- The Elephant & Castle Hotel in Geelong is an English-style pub offering up exquisite pub fare and live music on the weekends. The hotel was refurbished a few years ago by the owner Darren Lyons, Geelongs current Mayor and celebrity photographer. The walls are adorned with and showcases his personal collection of photographs of the most famous of people. The decor is decidedly English with touches of red velvet and deep toned timbers. There is a large open fireplace that warms the bar in winter, providing a toasty place to indulge in a tasty and affordable bar meal. The Elephant & Castle Hotel has great steak, seafood and parmy night specials. The popular dining room serves up restaurant quality food. The new menu has received rave reviews with the salmon and steak dishes of particular note. There is an extensive wine offering and the service is efficient and friendly. They have recently finished the beer garden and it features large bespoke cypress slab tables, its own bar and heaters for all year round enjoyment. As stated earlier, Saturday night typically features a live band and is popular with the over 25's. The music at The Elephant & Castle Hotel is usually rock and they have a Sunday session late afternoon featuring jazz or blues.
