If you’ve been hankering for an old favourite like a chocolate ice-cream sandwich, duck liver pate with toast or Aunt Dorothy’s sherry trifle, The Wickham can certainly provide. The 1885 building underwent major renovations mid-2014, reopening to the public with four new spaces and a refreshed food offering. Swing by from 6:30 am weekdays and 10:00 am weekends for coffee, tea, smoothies and takeaway bites, or settle in to the new bar or open courtyard from 11:30 am to late. The Corner Bar serves darker expressions of beer, while the Garden Bar boasts pitchers and spiced rum punch alongside other creative cocktails. Take your pick of classic pub meals, retro throwbacks or international dishes, which will be whipped up for you in the shipping container kitchen. As a traditionally gay (LGBTI) venue since 1996, The Wickham operates an upstairs nightclub from 7:00 pm every Friday and Saturday night, and weekly Out on Sunday sessions with DJs, cocktails and nosh from 2:00 pm in the courtyard.
