Went for lunch, the food is reasonably priced. The staff very friendly. Quite a lovely place to meet for drinks and food, handy to Central Station. Full of history, if only the walls could talk.......

This place is a good solid option without being remarkable. The food is good value for money, there is a decent choice of beers on tap, and the cricket was on TV when I was there for dinner. The place seems to attract a mixture of tourists and Brisbane locals, and it does have a nice Queensland pub ambience.

Need I say more? Amazing value, flavour and portion sizes. We come here every Wednesday and it has never failed to please. Everything from steak, chips, salad and sauce is perfect.

We had just finished a tour of the city when we asked a local where we might drink, he suggested here and a good choice. There was plenty of choice of good beers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The barman was from the UK just a few miles away from where we live. Lovely building.

Obviously the GCH is a pub but, what I've now realised after visiting plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs in the Brisbane CBD, is that this place is easily the best value:quality for money. The steaks are at a price point you'd expect for a Monday night steak night but it's every day, lunch and dinner. Was cooked just how... More

This is a hotel bar and restaurant that really knows what it is on about. Great choice of drinks..... on tap or by bottle. Great food - honest pub variety. Service was great - some attitude - but great

If you want a pub that smells like a pub. Acts like a pub. Looks like a pub then this is the place to be. Sit outside and watch the cars go by on Ann Street while sipping a pint of cold Fat Yak and remembering the diggers with the Shine of Remembrance a stones throw away.
