122 Johnston Street, Fitzroy

Offering a menu and ambiance inspired by the honesty, seasonality, and skill found in modern British cooking, The Commoner is firmly  and proudly embedded within its local setting – one that happily mirrors both the produce and seasons found in Europe. The Commoner provides a uniquely local approach to traditional British cooking.

All our produce is sourced (or foraged) as locally as possible and the team takes particular delight in creating everything on site; from the potato sourdough or gluten free breads that welcomes you, to the clotted cream poured lovingly over your dessert… The Commoner has created a space where people can enjoy truly beautiful food and wine, served with genuine warmth and hospitality.

The Commoner first opened her doors in 2007, presenting a uniquely British addition to the existing restaurant scene in Melbourne. Five years later, we are very proud of the reputation we have built within this city’s vibrant and progressive food scene for our distinctive blend of honest seasonal cooking and progressive kitchen skills.

From humble beginnings The Commoner has grown to incorporate the courtyard garden and versatile upper floor spaces. These beautiful rooms are now available to accommodate all kinds of events and group dining.We look forward to providing a perfectly tailored, intimate and unique dining experience for you.
