This is a typical pub that serve around 15 different draught beers including great northern, super dry and a few others. Good service but a little pricey for a big group.

After going outside to partake of a cigarette, I was refused entry back into the premises. At first I was told it was because the security guard had "seen me picking up cigarette butts from the floor". After asking to see his manager, I was told I was a liar therefore I asked to see the Premises Manager, who stated,... More

They do not wont older people there so make up ridiculous reasons to ask them to leave. Will never go there again. I am disgusted with this place.

Hi there Janlan66, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, however, we are going to have to politely disagree, if you look thru our photo albums online or pop in any other time, you will find a very wide range of age, race & religion! We have an open door policy and welcome all! I'm afraid there... More

While visiting Brisbane on Saturday we found this place so dropped in for a few Beers. Great atmosphere and a Muso started not long after we arrived. Not much to report as we didn't eat but one thing is you need to Roster a Swampy to pickup glasses and plates as this doesn't happen.

Great pub for a cheap lunch or drinks on a Friday afternoon after work. Happy hour 4 to 6 for $6.00 pints of Guinness is always a winner.
