With a large leafy courtyard and a sleek indoor dining area, Public Bar is a popular watering hole for Manuka locals.

The menu features some Aussie-loved classics: chicken parmy, fish and chips, and steak from the grill — most are served with a fresh house salad and fries. There's something for vegetarians and vegans, too, with the likes of beetroot salad and pumpkin pizza sitting pretty on the menu. Like any good pub, Public Bar is also known for its themed specials, including beer and cocktail of the month.

It also hosts live music on Friday and Saturday afternoons.
