Allenstown Hotel – Rockhampton

Get ready to “test your little grey cells” at the Allenstown Tuesday trivia night. Every Tuesday night from 7pm, Allenstown holds a free trivia night for anyone who is quick enough to register at 6:30pm. Hosted by a very quirky Dr. M, this Rockhampton trivia night is definitely one to get you thinking. Bring your team down to try and dominate the night, or make new friends as you combine forces to become champion underdogs.
While you’re here, jump over to the Allenstown sustainable restaurant and make sure your brain is energised and ready to go. With fresh Australian beef, cage-free Australian chicken, sustainable seafood and so much more, you can rest assured knowing any meal that comes out of this kitchen is not harming the environment. Grab a delicious Graziers steak, the Fisherman’s Catch or let yourself be tempted by one of the indulgent desserts.

The Criterion Hotel-Motel – Rockhampton

“Bring ya brains, bring ya mates and lets get it on,” The Criterion Hotel-Motel is keen to get the community together for a Wednesday night unlike any other. If you are stuck at home wishing it was Friday, or just can’t find anything good to watch on TV, jump in the car and head down to Criterion. The trivia night at Criterion is on every Tuesday night from 6pm and is filled with all of the character, charm and conversation that locals have become accustomed to. And, when it comes to the food, get ready to drool.
This family owned and operated restaurant has been serving up Rockhampton local’s two favourite food groups since 1991 – steaks and beer. Start off with a Crumbed Camembert entre, grab a chunk of steak covered with your favourite Meal Toppers, order a ice-cold drink and get ready for trivia. Better yet, if you are part of the Pub Club, get ready to enjoy 20% your food until close (excluding takeaway meals).
