The Moor's Head

January 8, 2018


Recently the restaurant/bar we long knew as Markov Place changed hands - it's now a welcome second Moor's Head! We've enjoyed this business' 'inauthentic pizzas' in Thornbury, and they've transferred the menu faithfully to a venue tucked ever-so-conveniently behind Cinema Nova.


We kept it small and simple on our Monday night there, sharing the roquette salad (with dots of shanklish & Iranian raisins, $9.50) and the Oum Kalthoum ($19), a pizza of tomato, ashawan/aged mozzarella, haloumi and specks of black chilli.

There's plenty of scope for a more extravagant meal, of course - cold and hot mezze, pides spilling with caramelised eggplant, tahini yoghurt, and multiple cheeses, sweets and set menus. I'm sure we'll work up to them in future visits.

Accessibility: You can enter via Eva bar on Drummond St (straight corridor, uneven shared toilet space, down a half-flight of stairs) or possibly via the cobbled Markov Place (wide entry). Both low and high tables are available. We ordered at the table and paid at a high bar. We didn't visit the toilets this time, but we think they're individual cubicles (gendered in times past but possibly now unisex).
