MELBOURNE | Teller is a modern, spacious Brunswick East pub. It’s named after the building that it’s housed in. The former State Savings Bank of Victoria, built in 1918.
With capacity for 300 people, the beautifully restored venue features several zones. A front and rear dining room, beer garden to the side, and an upstairs function area. There’s sleek lines, with concrete and wood combining with lots of greenery, high ceilings, and natural light, to create a modern, welcoming venue.
Food wise, it’s Mediterranean influences and pub favourites. Think grilled meats, fish and chips with pickled fennel, sauce gribiche, and a delicious bacon cheeseburger. Other dishes include things like oysters, whipped cod roe with flatbread, and truffle ricotta gnocchi with parmesan cream and seasonal veggies. For dessert, the Bombe Alaska, with raspberry and coconut, is a must try. Surprisingly, it’s also vegan and gluten free.
For drinks, it’s an extensive wine list that skews local, 11 craft beers on tap, and a cocktail list that riffs on the building’s bank heritage.
On weekends, Teller is also open for breakfast coffee, pastries, and toasties. All in all, a great addition to the area, that’s already popular with locals.
