Pig 'n' Whistle Pub Queen Street Mall


At the Edward Street end of the Queen Street Mall, just outside Queens Plaza, is the Bristish themed pub the Pig 'N' Whistle. The Queen Street establishment is open from 7:00am until late, almost guaranteeing you can get a Guinness at almost any time of the day. They specialise in gourmet British food (although I wonder if there is such a thing!)

The pub has varying breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, with a good variety of reasonably priced fare. They also have a good wine and beer list, catering for most tastes although quite generic in nature. The pub is available for functions, and was a well known haunt for the Barmy Army during last years Cricket Ashes series. They also show English and Scottish Premier league football on large screens within the drinking area.

With today being St Patrick's Day, there has been a distinctly Irish feel around the city. Many people are out and about with the green and luck of the Irish. Alledgedly there are more Irish here in Brisbane than any of the other capital cities of Australia. And although it is a British oriented pub, you can be guaranteed that in the evening they'll be as Irish Green as any of the other pubs around the city.

Cheers, I Love Brisbane, Wes.

Dear wes. I think the refurbishment that they did in the QSM created a great example of Brissie / QLD architecture. I love the outdoorsy type of restaurant and pub, like the Pig n Whistle (and the one in Roma St Gardens).

I think I was there . . . although in truth all those places in the mall look a bit the same to me

Stuff, I think you may have been a little bit further up the mall, outside the Regent Theatre - but it still looks like you were having a good time. Glad you enjoyed Brisbane!
