Hallmark Group has added to its Brisbane portfolio with the addition of a historic pub.

The Lord Alfred Hotel has reopened under the ownership of the group after temporarily closing earlier in the year.

“The Lord Alfred is an iconic and historic venue in one of Brisbane’s best entertainment precincts,” says a Hallmark Group spokesperson.

“When the opportunity arose to add it to our ever-expanding portfolio, Hallmark Group jumped on it.”

The venue, established in the 19th century, is now trading from Thursday to Saturday from 4pm.

It’s the latest addition to Hallmark’s portfolio, which encompasses venues including Retro’s Cocktail Lounge, Finn McCool’s, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria and The Cavill Hotel.
