Food and drinks are all reasonably priced. Large portions of food and a good range of drinks available. Outdoor area is really lovely. Toilets had been destroyed by patrons of the pub which was disappointing but a bit hard to avoid.

We had lunch yesterday and though it would be good to try dinner tonight, it didn't disappoint, the staff are helpful and the food is excellent. There is outside seating with patio heaters to take of the chill, very good.

1876 Bar and Restaurant is a distinctive & much valued landmark of Queenstown.The old stone courthouse building was erected between November 1875 and September 1876. The Old Courthouse is one of the few structures that survive from Queenstown's early gold mining days. Now over 130 years on 1876 offers an upmarket menu, relaxed atmosphere, great service & friendly staff. With the option of indoor and outdoor dining 1876 is definitely the place to be. During the winter season we will have live music between Wednesday and Sunday nights.
