Sometimes, it's nice to forgo the gastropubs and microbreweries for a good old-fashioned pub — that's when The Caxton Hotel steps in. Located a stone's throw from Suncorp Stadium, 50 meters to be exact, this unapologetically unrefined pub proves we don't need to mess with the classics. It's open late, seven days a week, and just three minutes from the Brisbane CBD.

This Brissie stalwart has been owned and operated by the Farquhar family for more than two decades and boasts three bars, a restaurant, nightclub, cafe and bottle shop as well as ample outdoor space. Oh, and a hefty lot of accolades. The Caxton Hotel is a multifaceted venue with a lot on offer, from poker nights to karaoke sessions. The kitchen has a stellar reputation among locals and produces quality fare showcasing Queensland's irrefutably fresh seafood.

The menu here punches above its weight, with an oyster bar featuring natural, kilpatrick and bloody mary shooters, as well as starters such as tempura coconut prawns, Szechuan pepper calamari and a platter for two with arancini, duck spring rolls and sourdough. The classics are here in force with its chicken parmigiana a standout as well as its black lip mussels in a spiced tomato broth.

If you're feeling brave after witnessing a tough game of footy, then tackle the 'Caxton Kilo' and conquer either the 1kg parmi or the 1kg rump steak with beer battered fries and a garden salad.
