With what I would call an eccentric beer garden (hey, they have bus parked in there!) we enjoyed this bar so much we went back for seconds! There was a good beer list, though limited taps (8 from memory. There are board games for people to enjoy while having a drink and also the food was good (we had oysters... More

Only spending a few days on Hobart clearly I have not been to every bar... But this was the best! Great vibe. Quirky use of the old bus. Great local ciders and good snacks! We had to come back the next day or was so good

The pub is lovely and the beer garden is fab, has a real student feel and it's a must to have a photo driving the bus! They only really serve burgers but it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. Beer is quite expensive but definitely recommend a visit to this little gem - a little bit out... More

We went to Preachers for a quick lunch during a day of sightseeing in Hobart. A close walk from our accommodation at the St Ives Apartments, it was a perfect spot on a sunny day. Both of us decided on the beef burger, accompanying it with a glass of pino gris and a cider. The burger was huge and filled... More

What a great pub! Plenty of beers, ciders, and other drinks on offer. The staff new a lot about them all and were enthusiastic about their advice. The highlight was sitting in the bus outside while the rain pelted down.

We elected to forego the nightly dinner and just hit lots of little bars/pubs in and around Hobart - getting a small bite of something at each place. This was a riot! There are so many wonderful places to choose from. One of our favorites was Preachers around the corner (and up the hill) from Salamanca Square. It might even... More

This place is so much fun! From the bingo on the bus, to amazing pub meals that cater to vegans and vegetarians, the yummiest warm cider on a cold winters day and the lovely bar staff. They serve such a large variety of ciders on tap and have very good knowledge about the local brews. Its very cute, in the... More

Popped in here after work on Friday for a few quiet ones. And on an above-average temperature winter's evening, the beer garden was full of happy, chatty groups of friends. Plenty of places to sit outside, including beanbags, and a bus! We opted for a seat on the bus with our local ciders. Good selection of local beers, and our... More

Nice enough atmosphere, great heritage premises and has a decent selection of beers but a minimal menu and no coffee available...
