Discover Caxton Street
Located at the top of one of Brisbane’s most famous entertainment precincts, The Lord Alfred Hotel calls Caxton Street home. Established in the 19th century, the hotel features three levels, six bars and eight premium function spaces: all boasting their own unique piece of history. Now ageing closer to 150 years, The Lord Alfred has been carefully restored and holds much of Brisbane’s youth behind the doors. Each space within the pub portrays one of the eras over time, offering a place for entertainment and welcoming social gatherings.
Plan Your Next Event
The function spaces all offer decadent upholstery, hosting large groups or intimate get togethers. The piece de resistance for this Caxton Street institution is the unique private dining room which is located underneath the pub. The Watch-House offers an unparalleled dining experience for small groups, steeped in history to ensure conversation is never at a lull. The Watch-House once played home to various offenders and was the overflow cells to the original jail right through the 1850’s. To this day, the function space holds a tunnel which can be seen leading right underneath Caxton Street, which leads across the road to The Barracks. This unique offering lies quietly in one of Brisbane’s most prestigious pubs and is considered Brisbane’s best and only underground dining experience.
Book Your Next Function
The cellars unfortunately closed in 1883 to make way for construction for another jail, which meant The Watch-house was given life. Now at The Lord Alfred you can book intimate dinners, unique themed experiences, or tailored packages unlike any other pub in Brisbane. Head down to Caxton Street for a cold drink or regular events and enquire with the team how you too can witness a slice of history right at your front doorstep. All of this, only at one of Brisbane’s oldest pubs.
