The Best Pub-Grub from Around the World

Normally I like to write exclusively about my own experiences I’ve had when I travel, but sometimes in order to give my readers even more value than what my own experiences allow me to give I have to go beyond those personal experiences and collaborate with other travellers in my circles. This is one of those times as I explore some of the best pub-grub from all around the world, quite a bit of which I have indeed had the pleasure of enjoying myself but a lot of which my fellow traveller friends have told me about as well.

So here goes…

The Duke of York Pub & Restaurant, Hull City, UK

The warm welcome from the staff should say a lot about what awaits you inside this charming pub in Holderness and it offers some fantastic pub grub in a super atmosphere. Meals here are prepared daily and come in some good portions and word has it that their slow braised lamb shank dish goes down rather well with a pint.

The Great Bear Pub, Burnaby, Canada

This joint comes in as a favourite for pub grub junkies who particularly love their chicken wings, which come in many different flavours and also go down really well with one of many local beers served at the bar. It’s a pretty spacious bar, but one which manages to maintain that intimate feel to it nonetheless.

Australia Hotel, Cessnock, Australia

Take it from me as the way it really is when I tell you that they really love their sports in Australia, a love and passion which extends to the confines of some of their in-house bars and bistros such as the Australia Hotel. The bar is decked out in sports memorabilia and their pub grub on offer boasts one of the biggest varieties in pub grub I’ve ever seen. They have some good seafood on offer as well, but I’m more of a steak sandwich type of pub grub lover — yes, I did say steak sandwich and it just settles in the stomach better when washed down with a good local beer.

Hatfield Square, Pretoria, South AfricaHilliardsbeer

This venue for some great pub grub almost didn’t make the list because as sad as it is, the fellow traveller friend who shared this experience with me says he recently visited the eastern part of the capital city of South Africa again, only to find that the Hatfield Square no longer exists. There’s now a block of city apartment flats which were built to meet the demand for student and working professional accommodation as there is indeed a university nearby, which was the primary feeder for clients who used to love grabbing some pub grub in one of many pubs dotted across the perimeter of the Square. He told me that it was almost like these bars were competing with each other with the pub grub they offered, as students and young professionals filed in to grab a bite to eat, usually while watching the football on the screens mounted on the walls. Typically good pub grub dishes included a chicken burger and chips you just can’t get anywhere else which goes very well with beer and you could get this at the local McGinty’s which was once part of the Square.
