Incorporating “Images of Our Time” Art Gallery 

It’s not often you can sit down to dine with the likes of James Dean, David Bowie, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Raquel Welch, Princess Dianna and even the Queen gazing down at you. The Elephant & Castle Hotel has established itself as one of Geelong’s major attractions and is home to one of the country’s most prized photographic collections: “Images of Our Time”. Locally born, former Mayor, Darryn Lyons has opened up his private collection which features over 120 iconic photographs adorning the walls of the bistro and function rooms.

May Exhibition: The British Music Experience. On now in the upstairs gallery, free admission, all welcome.

New Autumn Menu: The team at The Elephant and Castle have just launched their new Autumn menu. Sam Winchcomb, an inspiring young chef who has returned to Geelong after working in Europe, has continued the Elephant’s love affair with using fresh produce from Geelong and the surrounding region. The hotel offers fantastic lunch and dinner dining, seven days a week, in both the restaurant and public bar. The diversity of the menu will suit everyone from vegans to hungry seafood and steak lovers. The $12 lunch specials Monday to Friday are very popular plus there is a great ‘Kids Menu’ with meals just $10 including a free soft drink.

Function Packages – Free Room Hire: Catering for a large variety of different functions options with an upstairs private room which holds 70 people for a cocktail party or 40 for a sit-down meal, or if your style is more relaxed try the Beer Garden with award winning designed Red Gum furniture surrounded by a hedge of cypress pine, private bar, heating and TV monitors.
