Location and contact

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.

The food is cheap and tastes delicious! Doesn’t take very long to wait. Good atmosphere and music, sometimes live music which always makes a place better. Bar tenders very lovely and fast at serving drinks

The $20 dinners are tasty and very good value. Each evening is a different meat accompanied by green beans and excellent crispy fries

Visited this restaurant for a quick lunch. It’s probably one of the cheapest places in town. The bar staff were fairly disengaged or hungover. They weren’t rude or anything negative as such, but a bit of enthusiasm goes a long way in hospo. Had a...More

Tasty fries, but the most unfriendly staff me and my friend ever met. Bitter bartenders when not even busy.... Will never go here again.

This place was very busy and you can see why. The price. With cheap food and drink prices you can’t go wrong. Staff a little rude and more interested in serving women. But overall good
