I like this place, as I use to come here 30 years ago when I was in the Army. The place has changed, more open and a lot more areas to enjoy yourself. I sometimes catch up with friends, to watch Rugby League Games, Close to the centre of Brisbane, and has some tasteful meals, at good prices. Can get... More

What a great incentive to dine at the Normanby Hotel, half price meals for the month of March. Our evening in the Bovine restaurant was faultless, delicious well sized meals, good service, and friendly atmosphere. Normal meal prices range from the mid $20s to high $30s, standard pricing for hotel food these days. From within the restaurant we could heard... More

Now who doesnt enjoy a half price meal. From what I understand its half price on all meals for the remainder of March. Went with three people on business. My steak was good, others didnt enjoy their meal so much. The waitresses were a little slow, and not super friendly. They do know how to cook a blue steak!

Had a great night at the Normanby Hotel. Big group of boys on a big weekend we tasted the brews and enjoyed the outdoor bar area. The food was great, pizza and fries and associated bar food. Great for groups looking to enjoy the music, good company and drinks!

First time at this place and ordered a steak, medium rare. Steak was full of grissel and over cooked. Told a staff member who told "The Boss" and not even an apology. Just because they have half price meals at lunch time, does not give them a reason to serve half quality. Such a shame as I was enjoying a... More

The lady(Airee or something with a behind ear tattoo) in the black playsuit without a tag name who was taking orders on Sunday 12th of March was pretty rude with me and all my friends. But the other staff in the other hand were pretty nice and helpful. Jessica for example :) Just hands up for the grumpy mood behavior... More

A big pub that can attract a crowd that is well managed given the scale of the place , the food is reasonable you come here to meet your mates and have a drink - party central

My daughter had her 21st party at a private function room at the Normanby Hotel last Saturday night for 100 people. The food was ordinary, the service even worse. The DJ would not turn down the music when asked and the security guy was openly rude. The only time any of the staff spoke to me was to get my... More

We went here late afternoon on Australia day. Unlike other places in the city, this place was busy and had atmosphere. They have lots of different sections, each slightly different, and multiple bars. They also serve food, including a fast food bit where you can get chips etc. The music was good and lots of people were dancing. They also... More
