We came here for a few drinks in the afternoon mid week, it was pretty quiet but still managed to have a nice vibe about it. I imagine it's crazy busy on the weekends, the drinks are nice. The decor is great, it's cosy inside and really chilled outside. The bus is such a great idea, it was cold when... More

Whilst there, at the recommendation of friends, there was a person at the bar talking to a friend. When I asked for service she responded "I'm conducting an interview". Eventually she called for someone out the back to serve. She was rude and unconcerned for the customers. I had heard such good things about this place but I don't think... More

Varied tap list..... If you're a craft beer geek, this is a must while in Hobart. Cool, chilled vibe.... Would recommend settling in for a session. Seemed to have plenty of locals, minimal tourists.

It's a nice place to hang out for a local beer or a hamburger. The food is just OK, but the atmosphere is great.

We came across Preachers in the Hobart Urban Walkabout guide and what a find! Preachers is a quirky and fun little cafe/bar that is tucked away behind Salamanca. It's worth taking the time to hunt it out and you'll be glad that you did. There's a great range of craft beers and ciders to please any hipster. The food was... More

Just a couple of minutes walk away from the Salamanca strip, Preachers is a creative space to chill out and enjoy the impressive selection of beers they have to offer. Service is great, happy and laid-back. The outdoor space is where the creativity is truly expressed! It has a fair amount of seating and there is a converted bus which... More

I love a good burger and heard preachers is the place. I was extremely disappointed in my burger. I literally had to take it back and double check they gave me a proper patty it was so small. Of the hundreds of burgers I've had, preachers belongs in the bottom 5. Seems like it could be a good place to... More

Preachers was a treat. Was super excited to find vegan menu options. Love the bus and cost fire places. Good selection of craft beers. Nice vibes here. Nice to see young couples here with their babies!

Had a lovely crunchy chicken burger and mulled cider (yum!), burgers priced well but drinks a bit on the pricy side but worth the money

Thank Stephanie B
