Brisbane's Historic Pubs

From the oldest licensed pub in Queensland and the 150 year old hotel that is Qld's heart of the blues, the pub haunted by the ghost of its first publican and the grand old dames that have had stunning makeovers, a guide to Brisbane's historic pubs:

With its multi level lace iron wraparound verandahs and decorative trimmings, the Regatta is as fine an example of an 1880’s Queensland pub as you’ll find
The Lord Alfred Hotel, one of Brisbane’s grandest old pubs circa 1868, has been given a stunning makeover
The Boundary Hotel, West End’s iconic landmark pub circa 1864, is a fascinating multi-layered labyrinth of ambient nooks and crannies, including rooftop and laneway bars
Fondly known as “Brisbane's worst vegetarian restaurant”, the Norman Hotel is an iconic Australian Steakhouse and Garden Bar
Built in 1874 as a private residence, the Ship Inn was been operating on and off as a hotel since 1879 when it was a hangout for drunken sailors.
A Brisbane icon, ingrained irrevocably in the psyche of generations of locals because of the Spanish Steakhouse first and its tropical beer garden second but a visit should definitely include both
Royal Mail Hotel at Goodna is an historic hotel that on weekends is the centre of live blues'n'roots
The Osbourne Hotel, an historic hotel founded in 1864 in Fortitude Valley, is now a stunning bar, bistro and beer garden
South Brisbane's The Fox Hotel is a splendid 1920’s style pub (whose beginnings date back to its original incarnation as the Terminus in the 1880’s) that is almost a stand-alone attraction.
The iconic Richard Gailey-designed historic pub peddles everything from cafe fare by day to great cocktails and upmarket bar food
The multi-level, heritage-listed Prince Consort Hotel features 8 unique spaces for drinking & dining, including a luxe disco
Grand old dame of New Farm, The Brunswick Hotel is in the throes of a major makeover with Stage One ushering in a new era as a gastro pub, garden bar and lounge bar.
The Grand View began life as a single storeyed structure in 1851 and today after various extensions and a motley history is one of Cleveland’s oldest surviving buildings.
It's not in Brisbane, but this Gold Coast hinterland English pub is worth a mention because it is actually more than 300 years old and was transported
