Description: 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 long summer months, the huge sun-drenched deck will host various activities with a cider garden, outside cocktail bar, Sunday BBQ & live music...

“Great Bar-Good value-With very nice helpfull staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Travelled to Queenstown with my wife and daughter for a week in Feb 2012, we found 1876 on the 1st day and don’t think there was a day where we didn’t pop in for lunch or just a drink. Both the food and drinks were good value (especially at happy hour) and there was always a nice atmosphere.
The new owners Craig & Michelle couldn’t have been nicer and friendlier.
If I lived there it would defiantly be my local.

“Yum, love the caesar and the warm, sunny deck!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

If you choose the $18 lunch combo option, you can have a glass of wine with it.
The deck is perfect for people watching and gathering some Vitamin B.
New owners Craig and Michelle are worth introducing yourself too as they love to hear your stories of what you're doing in Queenstown.
