Did someone say chicken parmy?

By Astrid Taemets | 29th June 2021

It’s no secret we love a boujee lunch here at Style, but who’s to say we don’t love a good ol’ pub grub just as much?

Our much-loved Brisbane watering holes have certainly raised the stakes when it comes to presentation, while still serving up all the classic dishes and flavours we have grown to love (chicken schnitty, come at me).

In celebration of the ever-evolving pub scene, here’s our round up of the best Brisbane pub feeds you’ll find across our glorious city.

The Boundary | West End

The Boundary has been on the pub scene since 1864, so we trust they know a thing or two about a good pub feed. After undergoing a snazzy refurbishment in 2018, the iconic venue has a new look and menu to match, consisting of the perfect mix of contemporary Australian dishes with a range of pub classics.

Oxford 152 | Bulimba

A fave amongst tourists and locals alike, Oxford 152 is the place to take the family for a filling feed during the week, or to unwind over a pub grub and beer when you clock off on a Friday afternoon. The seasonal menu offers a blend of contemporary Australian cuisine with all your faves when it comes to traditional pub fares.

Pineapple Hotel | Kangaroo Point

The Pineapple Hotel has been serving up top-tier pub meals to hungry Brisbanites for over 150 years. From signature steaks to woodfired pizzas, the Pineapple Hotel has a pub feed to suit everyone’s tastebuds.

Shafston Hotel | East Brisbane

If you find the fridge is empty after a busy weekend, the Shafston Hotel has you covered with their Monday night steak deals. Alternatively, a visit to this East Brisbane pub on hump day is the perfect way to break up the working week while grabbing yourself a cheap and cheery parmy.

Story Bridge Hotel | Kangaroo Point

Since its establishment in 1886, the Story Bridge Hotel continues to impress locals and visitors with its four unique dining experiences. A step up from the traditional pub grub, the Story Bridge Hotel is most known for their extensive list of steaks, but there are plenty of menu options to explore beyond that, too.

Regatta Hotel | Toowong

 For a fine dining meets pub feed experience, look no further than Regatta Hotel. Since its humble beginnings as a single-story pub in 1874, Regatta Hotel now has seven totally unique dining destinations to take visitors from pub counter to riverside dining. Take a wander through their River Road Cafe and discover flavours fit for breakfast, lunch, and tea, too.

Pig ‘N’ Whistle | Brisbane City

The Pig ‘N’ Whistle brings classic British pub-style food to the banks of the Brisbane River. From authentic fish and chips to burgers and pies, the Pig ‘N’ Whistle has become the ideal spot for corporates, family, and friends to enjoy an informal meal among the hustle and bustle of Brisbane City. Oink, oink, snouts up!

Brunswick Hotel | New Farm

A stone’s throw from the banks of the Brisbane River, the Brunswick Hotel is the perfect location for a family feed, or overdue catch-up with friends. The Brunswick’s menu features fresh seafood, succulent steaks, wholesome pastas, and so much more. 

The Plough Inn | South Brisbane

On Wednesdays, grab dinner and a drinks at the iconic Brisbane venue for just $20! The Plough Inn is sure to impress with picturesque views overlooking the South Bank Parklands, and an extensive menu of shared plates, steaks, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and salads.

Australian National Hotel | Woolloongabba

Where else would you go to watch the footy with friends over a parmy and beer than the Aussie Nash? Located in Woolloongabba, just across from the Gabba stadium, the Aussie Nash is a warm and welcoming environment fit for drinks with friends, or an affordable and filling pub feed.

The Caxton Hotel | Petrie Terrace

The Caxton Hotel has established itself as one of Brisbane’s most iconic pubs. Their signature Char Grill Restaurant & Terrace Bar is serving up quality steak and fresh seafood in an informal, yet sophisticated setting.

The Charming Squire | South Brisbane

Located in the heart of South Bank, The Charming Squire brings to life the story of James Squire through its full range of craft beers and ciders on tap. Before you indulge however, be sure to grab a traditional pub-style meal, made from seasonal and local produce, to line the stomach.
