Country Pubs For Sunday Lunch

Sundays were made for lazy long lunches with great food and drinks and scenic drives. So why not combine both with a day trip to these south east Queensland pubs and breweries? They may be a little bit further afield, but as far as we're concerned they're worth the drive:

Fox & Hounds Country Inn

Nestled in Wongawallan at the base of Tamborine Mountain, this quirky English pub is about as authentic as it gets. While here you can feast on traditional British food and drink, soak up the sun in the glorious beer garden, marvel over the eclectic paraphernalia adorning every nook and cranny, and even snap a pic with the Queen...more

Apollonian Hotel

Situated at Boreen Point, just a half hour's drive north of Noosa, this colonial-style hotel is the place to be for Sunday lunch, when the rustic bush kitchen kicks into gear, serving up the most mouthwatering wood-fire spit roast imaginable...more 

St Bernards Hotel

Perched atop Mt Tamborine, this historic hotel is the epitome of 'lunch with a view'. While munching on some hearty pub fare (think burgers, fish and chips, and chicken parmi), visitors can soak in the stunning vista of Tamborine Valley or, in winter, warm up by the roaring open fire place...more 

Scenic Rim Brewery

For a dose of great beer and food combined with some true country hospitality, this Mt Alford brewery is the place to be. Around 90 minutes from Brisbane, guests can sample on-site creations such as Fat Man Maroon Ale and Sheep's Back Spiced Apple Float. The food ranges from grazing platters to Dutch-style dishes to the decidedly Aussie chiko roll - with a twist...more

Fortitude Brewing

Brilliant beer, top notch food and a lovely open-air setting are features of this Mt Tamborine microbrewery. Beer lovers will be in heaven sampling the range of award-winning craft beer, while foodies are well catered for too, with a delicious range of gourmet wood-fire pizzas on offer. On Sundays, live music makes the whole experience even better...more

Pumpyard Bar & Brewery

Country town meets city at this historic brewery and bar nestled underneath one of Ipswich's grand landmark heritage buildings. The courtyard out back is a great place to while away a few hours with some tasty bar food and local brews...more
