This established Bluestone masterpiece encompasses all that is good in Northcote
We continue our tour of the fantastic High Street, Northcote to Wesley Anne. Sure you know about it, but we insist this fabulous tome is still underappreciated. It was actually one of the first to open and put a call out to thirsty locals.
The Wesley Anne is well worn in. The feel of the place is that of a well-loved establishment: comforting, familiar & easy. And while some of the staff may seem shiny and new, they’re friendly and efficient too.
Not too much has changed over the years, the towering bluestone walls support an impressive cathedral ceiling slung with rustic chandeliers. Wood booths shelter groups of mates chugging back boutique beers with their meals (order at the green lamp). New arrivals include a couple of recycled iron hoofstock (goat, or sheep maybe?) standing on the ledge of the stained glass windows. As we said not much has changed but if you haven’t had a couple sips at the Wesley Ann it will certainly be a laidback and pleasant surprise.
The kitchen offers up plenty of snacks to share. Check out the mount zero olives, dips, chorizo and kipfler potatoes. Heavier fare includes plenty of vegetarian options alongside seafood, beef mushroom and Guinness pie, pork belly, lamb, quail, steak and pasta. All the necessities…
Plenty of folk bypass the inside tables for the Wesley Anne’s huge courtyard. It’s here where folks from all walks of life are enjoying a good catch up, good food, and drink – and where we’ll no doubt find you tonight. Speaking of which, is it that time yet?
