Offering modern Australian dishes, our menu includes a range of delicious shared plates, pizzas and lunchtime burgers. If you want something more substantial our delectable mains include marinated lamb, the classic chicken schnitzel and of course our standout steaks.
A frosty ale on a hot summer’s day, a full-bodied red to go with your steak, or a mojito with your girlfriends on a weekend because you can. Our extensive drinks list will include something to hit the spot for any occasion.
Located at the very top of one of Brisbane’s best entertainment precincts, Caxton Street, The Lord Alfred was established in the 19th century and was named the Prince Alfred in 1868 following the announcement of the Prince sailing to Australian soils sent by his Mother, Queen Victoria. Now in its 150th year and having played part in many Brisbanite’s youth, most recently as Hotel LA, The Lord Alfred has been carefully restored with much consideration to its historic relevance.
What better way to finish off the weekend than kicking back with some chilled tunes, crisp ales, and sumptuous food. Come and visit our markets from 8am Sunday morning, only to return to relax with the family Sunday afternoon at The Lord Alfred.
The building was always designed for a hotel but the reason for the cells built underneath has always remained a mystery. We do know however that the cells were temporarily used as a lock-up for the local watchhouse in the late nineteenth century. The cells which now serve as the hotel’s cellar still exist today and now offer a uniquely intimate space to hire for a small gathering.
We invite you to come by and see the transformation from what was Hotel LA, to the re-establishment of Brisbane’s original, The Lord Alfred.
