What a find

Saw this lit up bus and wondered what it was and we found this very unique place to dine. Eat on the bus, in the great outdoor patio or inside. Food was excellent.

Returned a few times during the short stay in have an ale and a burger and a round of chess. First time, the beef burger was excellent and really set the bar for the experience. Second time round, while the burger was still good just lacked the finesse if the first. Was t the melted cheese or the order of... More

It's a small pub with great grub. From the extensive list of craft beers, the barman with an obvious knowledge of the small breweries and happy to make excellent recommendations, to the quality Captain Bligh's ale from a new 'micro brewery in Hobart just up the road, to the Lamb Burger with pepperberry relish, basil pesto, ash grove cheddar, rocket...

We really enjoyed our meal here - the concept of half and full plate is a winner. It was a shame that we were only staying in Hobart for one night as it would have been a treat to work our way through the menu! Good wine last - wonderful desserts. Go there!

Love this funky cool bar. Great for micro brews from throughout Australia. We enjoyed some Tassie Pinot. Will be back for more drinks on next visit.

Good selection of excellent craft beers. Had veggie burger which was great ($15) & loved the blues and rock music which was not loud so people can talk without shouting. Fantastic place.

Nothing will take me back to Preachers again for any of their food or drink. I will never eat oysters again, after that harrowing experience. They gave me my money back but destroyed my love of oyster. Also my future oyster days are over no thanks to this experience.. Also manage Ange never returned my call. So Hi Ange-can we... More

A great little eccentric pub in Battery Point! Loved the atmosphere and the beer and cider list is fantastic. We were stunned to have the best burger and chips, at very reasonable prices! The staff were also accommodating and very friendly. We just wish we had of gone on a nicer day so we could have enjoyed their awesome beer... More

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
