Pub / Food
Why locals love it
This rambling drinkery is like a Queensland pub in the middle of Newtown, complete with crab racing, pinball machines and a pop-free jukebox. Seconds last minutes here, troubles are doused in frangipani perfume and the beer's reasonably priced. That's why locals keep coming back - heading up, up and away for a brief jaunt to an imagined north.
Why you should visit it
If shiny, sharp and chic don't excite you then the Courthouse probably will, because you're a beer 'n' burgers sort of person. You like things weathered and worn - pre-loved and unsuperficial. You hate places that attract the same crowd every night. You want to nestle in somewhere that feels like home... away from home. Look no further.
