What was once a rowdy sailor's drinking den has been transformed into a civilised Gastro Pub complete with a separate and impressive function and convention facility catering for up to 200 guests. This iconic South Bank Hotel, constructed in 1864, has developed a reputation as a lamblover's paradise and boasts a classic pub style menu sitting beside our more accomplished dishes.

The inside dining room for more formal occasions (seating 30 guests). The alfresco area out the front of our Hotel where you can watch the world walk past (seating 56 guests). And the classic beergarden for those lazy lunches (seating 60 guests). We don't have poker machines, we don't have TV's and we don't have TAB. We are a true Gastro Pub with that traditional atmosphere but offer an extensive quality menu ranging from traditional pub meals with a focus on lamb through to our more restaurant style choices and dessert range.

The Ship Inn has a dedicated function room upstairs which is ideal for all styles of corporate and private functions. The function room can cater for up to 200 guests for cocktail style function or 100 for a sit down meal and is complimented by a 4 meter wide wrap around veranda to enjoy a view over the Parklands below. There are full bar facilities and you can choose from one of our menus below or ask our chef to tailor make something special for your function. Function Room Private room and balcony located on the second floor with views over Kangaroo Point Cliffs. Renovated with state of the art Audio Visual Equipment this room is the perfect option for corporate meetings or social events. Restaurant Dining Room Located inside the restaurant on a raised podium, this area is ideal for small groups who wish to have their own private area but still enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant.
