Nestled away as it is on tree-lined Bendigo St, just off High St in Prahran, one could be forgiven for not knowing of the existence of The Flying Duck. That said, the establishment certainly doesn't lack for patrons, and is usually brimming with the odd assortment of inner South-Eastern types that include the trendy, the eccentric, the upwardly mobile, the pseudo-vagrant, and dogs.

The Flying Duck

That's right, you'll often find dogs outside the Duck, and on Monday nights they are welcomed to join their two-legged friends as they partake in dinner and a beverage.

Tuesday night is steak night, serving up the sirloin for less than $15, though diners are able to get reasonably priced meals every night with stir fry, pizza, salads, burgers, risotto and parmas all coming in at under $25.

The Flying Duck Garden

The Flying Duck can get a bit crowded outside in summer, when everyone wants a table in the big, leafy beer garden out the back, but there is generally plenty of room, with two main bars, the dining area and the glass atrium. No less welcoming in winter, the pub will usually have the heaters blazing in the garden and the open fires crackling inside.
