Why you'll love Royal Exchange Hotel

  • Unpretentious atmosphere and charm
  • Relaxed atmosphere, huge selection of ice cold beer on tap
  • Great location on High Street in Toowong, just off the banks of the Brisbane River

The Royal Exchange Hotel is synonymous with Queensland's entertainment scene for locals, visitors and students across the city.

Sitting on High Street in Toowong, just off the banks of the Brisbane River, we're renowned for our relaxed atmosphere, huge selection of ice cold beer on tap, live entertainment and of course, our giant Beer Garden.

We've been a local institution since 1876, and remain one of Brisbane's last iconic pubs today.

Despite the changes we've gone through over time, we've retained our unpretentious atmosphere and charm, which is why generations of locals, students and visitors continue to return.

I really love the sandwich. I tried lots of sandwiches. This is one of my favourite sandwiches. And the atmosphere is amazing too.

Great little pub. Food is nice and tasty and simple pub food classics. Steaks are good, chicken wings are great. Pricing is on par with other pubs for food and portions are on the larger size. Beer has good deals with under $12 jugs of certain popular beers. Beers a re cold and been fresh when we have been. We go there at least once a trip to town when staying nearby. Last one the only issue was the online ordering did not send all the drinks to the bar staff. They did make them for us as we had paid but the menu it app lacks a little like in many places. But order at the bar and it is fast and staff are great.

Service and vibe is good but the vegetarian nachos were not worth it for >$20. I could have thrown something better together at home in 5 minutes. The owner said he will look into this so I have updated my review.

Love attending on any given night. Great vibes with a variety of customers, especially on a Tuesday evening for trivia with Scotty. It’s great seeing a small business doing so well in this economical climate. Great staff members and customers.
