Dine with Spectacular Views of Brighton Beach
Established as the Royal Terminus Hotel in the 1840s, Milanos Tavern remains one of Brighton's oldest landmarks. The second hotel south of the Yarra river and originally built of local red ironstone, the hotel was once so remote that it was bailed up by bushrangers.
Very quickly the establishment of five gracious sitting rooms, seven bedrooms for 30 shillings a week and stables became a destination resort. Also for hire were the prototype bathing boxes, these were wheeled into the bay for a healthy sea dip. Today, the altered but recognisable "Georgian" facade has witnessed it all and is classified by the National Trust.
The ground level offers a Bistro, alfresco courtyard and function/event room, while the 2nd level also has a function/events room, as well as a terrace with fantastic views of the bay.
With spectacular views of Port Phillip Bay in a warm friendly environment we offer our guests a flexible, simple solution to their needs.
