We often come here for a get together with friends on a Friday evening and never fail to have a good time and enjoy ourselves. This pub serves great Guinness, and the meals, whilst not spectacular, are of generous proportions and usually nicely cooked. Located just across the road from the Museum of Tropical Queensland, it is an easy walk... More

They have a happy hour here, check it out for a discounted ale, and a great meal. They have a great range of beer and Irish stouts on tap.

I visited this bar during the day and so it was really quiet. It has an excellent space and the bar staff were really friendly & knowledgeable on the different ales available (of which I tried a fair few). Check it out!
