The Centenary Hotel Pimlico is located at 35 French Street in Pimlico and is locally known in Townsville as The Centen. A 1950’s art-deco styled building, it is of great appeal and a truly unique location and style awaits those who stop for a meal or even just a beer.
The building itself is a two story brick building constructed in the 1950’s. The art-deco revival curved corner bricks and loads of terrazzo floorings inside are well worth seeing. A humble foyer boasts two brown sitting chairs which are also in theme with the art-deco styling.
The pub has a public general bar immediately at the main entrance, a “sports bar”, and an indoor dining area is adjacent to the former “lounge” bar. The dining room also opens up onto a very pleasant outdoor dining area with plenty of seating. Meals are reasonably priced and more than ample in quantity, with a great menu to choose from; however, the steak is undoubtedly the highlight.
The Centen is very child-friendly, with the bouncing pillow being a highlight for families. On any given night you will see dozens of kids playing on the pillow together while the parents can sit back, relax and enjoy their evening.
This pub has its own identity and character that wreaks of yesteryear. The service is friendly, the beer is cold and the meals are excellent, so well worth a visit when in Townsville.
