Heritage PUBS

Pubs are one of the foundations every Queensland city in the late 1800s was built upon. If you’re looking to experience Ipswich’s own historical flavour but not sure where to start, why not check out some of our local venues for a classic pub feed and some frothies! Sit back and enjoy the atmosphere in one of these historical gems.

Jets Leagues Club Originally built in 1880 as the Unity Hotel, then in 1887 after a major renovation changing its name to The Imperial Hotel and then in 1904 Hotel Cecil. The newly refurbished building that is home to Jets Leagues Club demonstrates a mid-Victorian aesthetic.While the outside is untouched, the inside offers many different areas such as a gaming lounge, luxe bar, restaurant, coffee shop and function room. So much more than just your everyday watering hole!

Marburg Hotel This family-owned pub is only 24 minutes from the Ipswich CBD. Not too far at all if you’re looking for that country atmosphere! Enjoy hearty, home-cooked style meals while enjoying the beautiful scenery in a building that is over 140 years old – making it one of Ipswich’s oldest original pubs. Sitting amongst the shopping district, the Marburg Hotel is the go-to food destination if you’re out for a day trip in Marburg!

Pumpyard Bar and Brewery Situated in a 100-year-old building on what was once Ipswich’s first well, Pumpyard is certainly THE place to visit for top quality, locally brewed beer. The menu offers everything from finger food to share plates and everything in between! The building is located in the old Ipswich Technical College at 88 Limestone.

The Prince Alfred Hotel If you’re looking for something for everyone, look no further! The Prince Alfred Hotel has a wide range of options on the menu for adults and children as well as an eye-catching drinks menu. Get in where the food is hot, and the drinks are cold! The hotel was originally built in 1842 and in 1961 it was destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt and reopened in 1963, and the original cold room from 1842 survived and still stands today.
