Went in to buy dinner and was asked for ID before ordering. I happily showed my U.K. driving license. The barmaid barely glanced at it before saying that they could not accept foreign driving licenses. I explained that I only wanted to eat and not...More

King O'Malleys is an Irish Pub located in the middle of the Canberra CBD. It is a joyful place to visit for a cold drink or for a meal if you want. Prices are pretty reasonable and you can sit inside or outside if you...More

Wow this place was puumping. Obviously a very busy Saturday night. Given that, the food came out quickly and was good. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely eat here again if in Canberra.

If you like beer it is the place to go. Unfortunately the Guinness has a low level % in alcohol, like everywhere in Australia. The meal was ok but not unforgettable, a bit comparable to a fast food.
