Royal George Hotel in Fortitude Valley is a spacious pub with a cocktail bar and beer garden. Inexpensive meals are available, with different cuisines offered on different nights including pizza, pasta, Mexican and steak. Popular with a vibrant crowd, it also has a gaming room and areas can be booked for private functions.
This place seems to be a bit of a dive during the morning with patrons in varying stages of drying out or retoxifying. But if you go there from say 11:30 am on it picks up and they have quite a nice meal selection and on a Sat/Sun arvo a duo or solo act on the little stage outside. Still a bit dingy though and it tends to drag the atmosphere of the mall down a bit.
