Inside the dining area and bar has a warm pub like feel, with black leather chairs, ambient down lighting tables crafted from recycled wood from an old Queenslander and a feature wall with a black and white photo of Edward Street in 1910, while in the background an Old Skool soundtrack of motown, soul and rock’n’roll keeps things upbeat.

Outside a spacious wraparound terrace overlooking some of the city’s finest heritage buildings makes a superb place to kick back in the afternoon sun with a craft beer or catch some morning rays with an excellent cup of Locale coffee and the city's best value breakfast.

On tap at Mr Edward's are a hand-picked selection of Coopers Ales, (chosen due to Coopers being the last of the Australian family-owned breweries) including the limited edition Coopers Vintage 15, as well as the highly recommended house lager from Danger Brewing Co.

On the food front, Mr Edward's Kitchen dishes up some fantastic nosh that is closer to fine dining than gastropub, but without the fuss or the price tag. The Irish chef has cut his teeth with some Michelin starred European restaurants and the result is a menu that makes this a serious dining destination as well as an alehouse.

Potted Crab with nashi pear and potato salad with crostini on a plate

Lunch customers can choose from mostly under $20 deliciousness like Cheeky Beef Burger, Superfood Salad (with Russian Red Kale, Mesculin, Pearl Bocconcini and Goji Gerries), Coconut Crumbed Scampi or Mr Edwards Daily Pie with rustic cut rosemary chips and side salad, 200g Rump Steak with rustic chips, salad, Cafe de Paris butter or Pepper Sauce, with Carlsberg Lager, house wine or soft drink.

Rabbit and Pork Terrine with Spiced Candy Apple and Roasted Fig

At any time of day diners can partake in some delicious Charcuterie, (perfectly matched with beers and served with cave-aged cheddar), fresh cut from the charcuterie cabinet which takes pride of place along one wall.
