We had just finished a tour of the city when we asked a local where we might drink, he suggested here and a good choice. There was plenty of choice of good beers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The barman was from the UK just a few miles away from where we live. Lovely building.

Obviously the GCH is a pub but, what I've now realised after visiting plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs in the Brisbane CBD, is that this place is easily the best value:quality for money. The steaks are at a price point you'd expect for a Monday night steak night but it's every day, lunch and dinner. Was cooked just how... More

This is a hotel bar and restaurant that really knows what it is on about. Great choice of drinks..... on tap or by bottle. Great food - honest pub variety. Service was great - some attitude - but great

If you want a pub that smells like a pub. Acts like a pub. Looks like a pub then this is the place to be. Sit outside and watch the cars go by on Ann Street while sipping a pint of cold Fat Yak and remembering the diggers with the Shine of Remembrance a stones throw away.

The food here is very good and the price is excellent. It is what I would call Pub food and is prepared well and is very quick service. They have specials everyday and are the best value. The beer is good and the variety seems to be decent as well.

Had a few beers and steak here a week ago while traveling via Brisbane. Nice selection of beers on top. Steak was cooked the way I like it. Even though it was a Monday night, the pub was surprisingly busy, always a good sign. Recommended for a meal and drinks, take the time to visit

A lovely old bar, great atmosphere, big range of beers, and variety of cheap pub meals. Spent a couple of hours just soaking up the atmosphere. Close to everything, pokies, quiet spaces & a TAB.
