Many rural, suburban and blue-collar pubs have been inundated with gambling machines — known here as pokies — turning what were vibrant social hubs into blinking, buzzing low-rent casinos that smell of cheap beer and desperation. To be fair, they always smelled of cheap beer; it was just more charming without the pokies. At the same time, urban pubs are being gentrified at an alarming rate: Charcuterie plates replace counter meals of steak and chips, loud music drowns out the boisterous chatter of regulars, spendy craft beers eclipse dependable brews. These changes are driven by culture and economics, factors that vary widely depending on location and clientele. But the common thread is a need to diversify revenue, as well as the sad truth that cheap drinks and cheap food alone will often no longer support these hulking old buildings and the people who work in them. Opened in , the building spent a few years as a private residence, and also had a short stint as a brothel around the end of the 19th century. The last renovation happened a decade ago, leaving the interior with wood-paneled walls covered in various memorabilia: old photos, vintage advertisements, license plates, taxidermied animals a kookaburra, a raven, a ringtail possum. In the winter, bartenders pull double duty slinging drinks and stoking the leaping flames in the huge brick fireplace.

It's unusual to come across an Irish pub that doesn't quite fit the much-copied standard format. This pub is a beauty. Traditional, with great Guinness and amazing musicians who simply come to jam. There must have been 20 or so when we were there on a Saturday afternoon. Great staff too - thank you. Do yourself a favour and don't miss this fine pub! We stopped in for a quick average lunch at a pub.
I researched this hotel before going to Tasmania and found that a group of people meet there to play traditional Celtic music. In January I went there to hear them play. I had a fantastic afternoon listening to this creative jam session of musicians perform. I would highly recommend this as a great Saturday afternoon. I showed up here late one afternoon after sightseeing for a drink and the place definitely started to filll up for dinner with live music playing by Billy Whitton and the Swinging Hepcats. The live jazz band was good entertainment, while others dined. I did not eat here but I quite enjoyed the live music, ambiance and friendliness of locals visiting the pub. My husband and I visited here for a quick lunch after a busy morning, starving we chose it because it was close by and looked like a relaxed place. I ordered the cheese burger, tom got the chicken snitzel parmi, both were great!
