Where is it: 40 Edward St, Brisbane City
Why we love it: One of Brisbane’s fantastic heritage listed pubs that is comfortable and inviting and maintains is historic charm (plus it has wonderful food)!
Tell me more: Like many old buildings, Brisbane’s Port Office Hotel has seen more than its fair share of ups and downs, most recently in January 2019 when what was thought to be a small fire took hold in the restaurant. This ‘small’ fire turned out to be quite a bit more significant than was first thought – it had found its way into the ceiling and caused a huge amount of damage to the whole building. It took owners Nick and Meagan Gregorski seven months to rebuild, relying on a lot of hard work and all the while still maintaining a small part of the hotel to their loyal patrons. Now all that is behind them and this wonderful pub and restaurant is as magnificent as it has ever been! Tastefully refurbished and comfortably furnished, it still exudes its heritage charm. The Port Office is now fully re-opened with public bar as inviting as would be expected and a new menu awaits (with a few dishes that they couldn’t say goodbye to) in the restaurant. This is a fantastic example of Brisbane’s heritage and is a must visit to get a feel for this city’s culture (and a great meal)!
