This Classic Pub is Serving up 1KG Steaks in BrisbaneMay 14, 2018


When an Australian hears the words “corner hotel” it’s not uncommon for an image of an elderly tradie anchored to a dated bar stool by his own beer belly to sprout into mind. But clearly these Australians are yet to pay a visit to Woolloongabba’s Norman Hotel.

You’ve heard of the terminator, now brace yourself for ‘Beefinator’ status because the annual Norman’s 1KG Steak Challenge is currently heating up the kitchen at the Normal Hotel until the 31st of May! Head on down to the hotel and you’ll be challenged to eat a 1KG piece of Riverina Verified Black Angus, 130+ days on grain, from the JBS stable in Southern New South Wales. Not to mention sauce, bacon topped Idaho potato or chips, salad or coleslaw, tomato and a Norman’s bap bread roll to sop up what’s left on your plate.

Lying just beyond the buzz of Brisbane’s CBD, the Norman Hotel takes the traditional views of Australian pub culture, chews it up and spits it back out, creating an even better ‘deconstructed view’ (sans pretension).

Established in 1889, the hotel takes its hat off to the original interior features of the hotel, spread uniquely across the 6 functions spaces on offer for every kind of party-goer or suited businessman alike. Exposed brick and hardwood fittings coupled with contemporary furnishings creates a revamped pub ambiance, ticking off all your function needs. Whether it’s your mate’s 21st, your mum’s low-key 50th or you’re meeting with potential backers for your new business, The Norman Hotel has you covered, in more ways than one.

Good food and drinks guaranteed, this multi-layered hotel accommodates one of the best bars in Brisbane with a seasonal cocktail menu, an outdoor beer garden for that necessary Friday knock-off drink, alfresco style dining area for a more sit-down restaurant experience, meeting rooms for ample productivity and even a Norman Hotel courtesy bus up for hire.

If a supreme pub dining or function experience wasn’t enough, there’s also a Mastersteak Cooking Class to keep the flames burning in your relationship as your next date idea or a fun night with friends with private classes available for bookings as well.

However, vegetarians turn away because the Norman Hotel grills like no other! Providing the best meat produce from across the country, the hotel’s menu consists of classic hearty pub food with both expected steak and salad side options to accompany your eye fillet steak and new twists like a Moroccan marinade coating your chicken supreme.

We reckon it’s time to participate in The Norman’s 1kg Steak Challenge – a competition where the stakes are definitely high. Imagine this; a belly full with sublime Black Angus Rump and your name on the conspicuously placed ‘Beef Honour Wall’ warranting every sort of bragging right you can imagine! Does it get any better than that?

A transformed Australian corner pub, The Norman Hotel quenches all your thirsts for a 2018 Australian steak experience.

What: Norman’s 1kg Steak Challenge
Where: 102 Ipswich Rd, Woolloongabba
When: Competition closes 31st of May
