Bringing the North to the North

Our Story

Michael Slade Northern Git 2024.jpg

"The OG"
(The Original Gitster)

“Ay up lad, you reet?”

Right smack in the heart of Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs, Thornbury to be precise, you’ll find Northern Git – a real gastronomic delight.

Locals lovingly call it ‘The Git,’ where they’ve mastered the art of dishing up fantastic food and pouring perfect drinks with a wink and a no-nonsense attitude.

Northern Git or simply ‘The Git’, flung open its doors back in June 2014, introducing a fresh and fabulous experience to the folks of Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs. Stepping into ‘The Git’ is like walking into your own laid-back haven, where the vibe is all about honest, no-B.S. dining and sipping.
