Who We Are

Every Flavour Tells a Story

Welcome to The Cheeky Pint – an inviting microbrewery serving up some of Melbourne’s finest food and drink. Think pub grub, but better.

Throw the doors open and you’re greeted with an interior as inviting as the couch on a Sunday, with an intimate dining space, a sprawling bar blessed by large copper tanks that house exclusive beers, and an informal lounge area.

We’ve got 12 different beers on the menu, 10 of which are brewed exclusively by us, for us, a lengthy cocktail menu (hello, biscoff martini), and some of the best pub food you’ll ever experience – consider the whistle wet.

Also, as reported by The Herald Sun, Urban List, and Broadsheet – we’ve got one of Melbourne’s best Chicken Parmas on the menu. It’s sexy, here to stay and to appease the masses we now offer a vegetarian variety that doesn’t involve eggplant!

“The crew at The Cheeky Pint does not mess around when it comes to Parmas” – Herald Sun (Feb ’23).

With regular menu changes to keep you on your toes, and daily specials to keep you coming back for more – there’s something for everyone so join us at The Cheeky Pint for Pasta Night on Mondays, Pot & Parmas on Tuesdays, Steak Night on Wednesdays, Burgers & Curry on Thursday & Bottomless on Saturdays.

If food isn’t in the plan and you’re just looking to treat yourself to a drink or three, we’ll see you at our Happy Hours – 4pm to 6pm on weekdays and 9pm to 11pm on Friday & Saturdays (with cocktails)

We brew-lieve in good beer, good food, and even better company – so why not take advantage of our great Function Packages and hire us out for your next event?

Birthdays, Weddings, Engagements, Baby Showers, End of Year Parties, Work or Business Events – there’s nothing The Cheeky Pint can’t do.

We had an enjoyable Sunday night meal here with our toddler son. It was a quiet night so the staff were very attentive and kind. The food was very good and our little man was chuffed with his free icecream.

My first time visiting The Cheeky Pint. Service is amazing. They go above and beyond. Even tho I don’t live in this area, I will definitely be back. Customer service is like finding a pin a haystack. Visit here and you won’t be disappointed.

We went for dinner and it was Parma night… wow! They are big serves, and the Parma is excellent. The wedges as a side are a great little addition as well. Staff were friendly, and the venue has a kitschy feel. Would definitely recommend, especially if you’re a Parma lover.

This Parma is in my top 5, and I’ve had so many Parmas. It was crispy without feeling soggy, with just the right amount of sauce and cheese. Staff were friendly, talkative and attentive, felt like I was a friend more than a customer. Will come back for sure

Caught up with a friend for lunch here and food was delicious and affordable! We tried something from their express lunch menu, steak frites $20, texture was good and mushroom sauce packed a punch of flavour. Also tried their Parma $30 which was indeed massive (had to take away). Place was casual, relaxed and clean.1.65% surcharge on cards.

Such a great little spot! The staff are really lovely and attentive, and the food is excellent especially for the price point. It’s often tough to find good gluten free varieties & at a good price, but they nailed it! We’ve loved the steak nights, and the curry is a hidden gem on the menu. Highly recommend this spot!! 10/10

Highly recommended the Parma or any of the food. There is so much detail that the chef that makes taste and flavours stand up. Not your typical pub food. They also brew their own drinks, I would highly recommend trying them all

Incredible. The best atmosphere and a great range of beers on tap including one’s they brew themselves. The Parma is the best I’ve ever had all washed down with…. A couple of cheeky pints. Staff were amazing and service top tier. Will be back!
