About Us


The Chip and Pin is owned by a small group of Melbourne people who share a passion for real ale.


During outings to the local beer festivals they discussed the idea of bringing a wider range of real ales to Melbourne and how to complement the existing popular pub and restaurant trade.


When a disused bank became available in the town, the friends jumped at the chance to take on this old building and to give it a new lease of life.


The bank has been sympethetically restored, respecting the needs of the conservation area whilst providing a new facility for the people of Melbourne and our many visitors.
