In this article, we look closely at Public: Manuka’s answer to the pub on the corner. Plus, our must try, best on-the-go and the local’s pick for the area.
Bright and inviting on the corner of Franklin Street and Flinders Way in Manuka is Public, a local favourite for indoor-outdoor tapas and modern pub fare.
The bar’s texture-rich interior is filled with natural light and hanging greenery. Outside, beyond the tiled facade, the cosy tables add a touch of Melbourne to the footpath and are popular even in the winter months.
The chicken schnitzel, beef burgers and steak remind you why these are still pub classics, and the popular wood-fired pizza, southern-style wings and kingfish ceviche are perfect for sharing. Cap your meal with a glass of wine, cold beer or cocktail and make sure you have a Will & Co. coffee before you head home.
