Had a really enjoyable and well priced meal. So much better than some of the try hard tourist traps around town. Cheapest kids meals anywhere. Not large but perfect for young kids. My ribs were well above par and drinks also well priced. Excellent service!

We had brunch/lunch here. Compared to other Queenstown restaurants the prices here are quite reasonable. They also have a large outside patio that is very popular.

Set in a heritage building, from the outside it looks very pricey and high end, but actually it is very laid back and affordable. Has both indoor and outdoor seating.

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.
