Notable features

The Mitre Tavern at Bank Place is a two storey cement rendered brick structure on a bluestone base. The Tavern was established in 1868 but parts of the building may date from the earliest days of settlement in Melbourne. The first publican was Henry Thompson. The building was substantially altered c 1900-1910 when English Queen Anne style additions were constructed using Marseille pattern terra cotta tiles on a gable roof with half timbered gable ends. A brick building has been added to the western side of the Tavern and windows have been altered. Facilities inside include three bars and staff rooms on the ground floor, two dining rooms and service rooms on the first floor.
