Lord Roberts Hotel
This is a good, old-fashioned corner pub that’s been serving the locals for a century and a half and doesn’t look like letting up any time soon. The beautifully restored interior echoes with the exuberance of its Victorian patrons from the past. These days, you won’t find too many bowler hats or cravats, but the boisterous laughter is still there, and there’s good food, drink and entertainment to go with it. While the menu is not overly fancy, it’s satisfying and tasty, and the bar serves all your favourite beverages plus cocktails which you can take upstairs and drink out on the spacious balcony. This is the kind of pub that attracts a core of regulars as well as punters who come along for trivia night, the pool comp, live jazz, DJs, and of course, Happy Hour. See ya there!
