NileGuide Expert tip:

The club downstairs gets pumping on weekends, but the Tuesday Trivia Nights are just as fun!


In a suburb where pubs are constantly renovated to please the upmarket crowd, the Great Britain (commonly referred to as the "GB") has maintained its slightly bohemian style. You'd be forgiven on entering that it is just one big lounge room, with its open fire place, and warm, though sometimes sticky carpet. On weekends, the downstairs area turns into a pumping club, but Sunday afternoons are better for the more chilled with free live bands. A great beer garden adds another option and Tuesdays are especially busy as the place fills up with trivia lovers where prizes range from jugs of beer to neon signs of Jesus. Be sure to try their house beer PISS, or their light beer, comically named PISS WEAK. There is a small food menu where choices are delivered from across the road.
