Verandah Public | Verandah


Accessible from the street and completely separate from Verandah Bar, is Verandah Precinct’s Public Bar. This relaxed bar has been recently refurbished and features a great choice of beer and wine, the same restaurant quality food as Verandah Bar, and a big screen for all your favourite sports. With outdoor seating along Elizabeth St, kick back, relax and do some people watching while you sip on a cold one or two. This cheeky little number is perfect for a pint after work, or a quality burger at lunchtime. Look out for our precinct-wide jungle vibe creeping through the décor and the occasionally naughty wildlife.

There is always a good excuse to escape the wilderness of the City at Public. Let us pour you a little golden happiness during happy hour, 3-5pm every day (closed Sunday) or entice you to savage a couple of pizzas with our 2 for 1 pizza deal on a Wednesday.

Verandah Public is open
Mon & Tues | 11am – 7pm
Wed – Fri | 11am – late
Sat | 11am – 5pm [/one_half_last]

Whilst the Public vibe may be cheeky, we take our food very seriously. Expect restaurant quality food from the kitchen of AHA Award winning chef, Brad Sloane, served in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Our menu offers the best of pub grub, with a few surprisingly delightful additions like an overloaded Butcher’s Board or an exotic Middle Eastern Salad with spiced cauliflower and zaatar dressing.
