About Us


A true local for the locals… and you.

The Dick Whittington Tavern is an iconic pub in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda. Trading since 1861, this traditional corner hotel continues to entertain locals and their loved ones, creating a colourful history as it does. Throughout the 150 years of trade, the building has been restored and it’s look changed, however it’s essence and love of a great time definitely hasn’t.

The team at The Dick pride themselves on their familiar and down-to-earth pub approach, complimenting our promise to provide traditional pub meals and a wide variety of beverages to suit all tastes.

Whether you’re looking for a night out with friends and family, to catch a live sporting game on our screens or just a well stocked bottle shop, The Dick Whittington has it covered.

The Dick Whittington is committed to conducting all aspects of alcohol & gaming service in a professional and responsible manner.
