I asked the DJ if he could play a song and had written the song on my phone and the DJ literally looked at my phone and threw it across the room. So rude and aggressive especially when I was so polite to him. This...More

Just dont waste your time going there. Roast meal was like card board. Glass of poor quality pinot gris wine was $7.50 and served in a beer glass. Cocktails served in preserving jars, the place is a joke.

Freezing cold night but warm and toasty inside. Good food (although not cheap) with quick service. The clientele is on the younger side so makes for a noisy atmosphere - not the place for a romantic evening! House wine is drinkable and a bargain at...More

1876 Bar and Restaurant is a distinctive & much valued landmark of Queenstown.The old stone courthouse building was erected between November 1875 and September 1876. The Old Courthouse is one of the few structures that survive from Queenstown's early gold mining days. Now over 130 years on 1876 offers an upmarket menu, relaxed atmosphere, great service & friendly staff. With the option of indoor and outdoor dining 1876 is definitely the place to be. During the winter season we will have live music between Wednesday and Sunday nights.
