Settlers Inn Hotel, Toowoomba, Queensland.

If you stand too long on the corner of James and Ruthven Streets in Toowoomba in the middle of winter, you’re in danger of hypothermia and being struck deaf by the traffic noise.  I was invited to lunch at the Settlers Inn by some work colleagues and jumped at the chance of some good and hot pub grub to warm my soul.

The building is 140 years old and the outside has had a nice paint job to give it a cared for look, unlike a lot of these old pubs that are allowed to decompose over the years.  It was a pleasant surprise to discover that the inside has been totally renovated in a modern colonial style befitting this grand old structure. 

New carpet, comfortable chairs, leafy green indoor plants, large sandstone blocks and a corrugated iron ceiling all add to the modern charm that captures its colonial roots.  Another obvious surprise besides how warm and cosy it is, was how quiet it is in the dining room.  I couldn’t say for sure but I bet they’ve installed double glazing.

The menu is typical pub fair and the service is friendly and fast.  Our order of fish and chips and salad, chicken parmagan, and a mixed grill were all fresh, well cooked and delicious. 


Three of us had lunch and a beer for only $56.00.  There isn’t the distraction of noisy poker machines either.  What else could you ask for, clean warm, comfortable and great food at a good price.  We all agreed that the Settlers Inn is worth coming back to again. 
The Settlers advertise many great meal deals during the week and a 200g rump steak for only $2.00 on Sundays.  This is a very family friendly restaurant so why not put the Settlers Inn Hotel on your list of places to visit in Toowoomba.
