Long boozy lunch venue

By 19 May 2014 15

I’m looking for a venue for a long boozy lunch with a small group of friends.  Something warm and inviting, where we wont be shuffled out the door as soon as the meal ends.  Prefer something central to save on taxi fares but happy to travel for if worthwhile.  I’m after an English pub kind of vibe.  Suggestions appreciated!

What about the Belgian in Kingston? Any licensed cafe is also a good choice for lingering indefinitely.

How about PJs in Civic. Food is pretty good and well priced. Beers are cheap and you can easily kill several hours in the arvo there, inside or outside depending on the weather.

The George Harcourt Inn in Nicholls (off the Barton Highway) has an old English pub feel.

Yes, but if you book for lunch at 12, they will book someone else onto your table at 2.00. Which is what happened to us recently. And they don’t tell you that when you book. So if you are hoping for a long lunch, this is not the place for you.

As soon as I read your requirements, this is what I thought of. Pity Filthy’s isnt there any more, I loved that place.

And for the guy who suggested pappa rich, you’re surely taking the p$ss….

I’ve only been to Durham at night when it’s actually horrifying. Better to go just about anywhere else. But perhaps it’s a different beast when the big bright thing is ovrrhead.

Could be, I’ve only been there once at night and it wasn’t memorable but that was years ago. However, I’ve been there for lunch 20 or 30 times over the past couple of years and it’s been great every time

Wilburs in Hackett. Great food, great beer, and I don’t think their lunch trade is so busy that they’ll kick you off a table when you’re still buying drinks.
It’s not quite “old English” but it’s a lot more cosy and personal than somewhere like Debacle.
