To all friends of the 'Fish

Welcome to the Catfish Fitzroy

Due to the nature of things, our hours of operation are currently a little different from before & may be forced to change unexpectedly. Please keep an eye on our socials for updates, and thank you for your understanding during these odd times.

We take our responsibility to our patron's & staff's health & safety seriously. We ask you friends to help us by following the current Government regulations. This means wearing a fitting mask while moving around the venue, checking in with the Vic Health Government QR code on arrival, and presenting staff with evidence of vaccination.

We truly thank all of you for your patience, understanding & kindness to our staff & fellow guests.

Of course we are still able to do take-away drinks for your trips to the park, or when you pop past to collect food from Sparrow’s.

The fridge is full of plenty of goodies, that change regularly. So come and pick up something different to share.

Stay safe, remember to laugh and drink beer. 

Catfish Specials

Monday's aren't generally people's favourite days, so the Catfish tries to help with $7 pints & $4 Pots of Lager, yup $4/$7 every Monday from Open until Close.

Thursday all day means cheap cans! ALL cans in the fridge are 20% off!

Sunday mornings are Bloody Mary mornings & our award winning Bloody Marys are only $12 from Midday - 5pm

The Catfish has always enjoyed bringing our friends the finest of beers. We scour high and low to provide you fresh beers of all styles. Old favourites & new offerings, from local and international independent breweries. Check out our Untapped for our current stock.

But we're not just here for beer! Our backbar features a growing range of local craft and imported spirits, as well as quality local wines. We even have a cocktail list if you're feeling fancy (the daiquiri is particularly good).

Sparrow's Philly Cheesesteaks

The Catfish is proud to be the original home of Sparrow’s Philly Cheesesteaks - Australia’s No. One proper steak slingers. They’ve been serving Catfish guests since we opened, and have some great offers.

These include cheap basic steaks Monday, and 50c Wings on Wednesdays. With an ongoing selection of different specials as well, make sure you click the link below for all food enquiries.
