It’s Always Empire O’Clock – Sip, Dine & Enjoy!



Superb Hospitality & Entertainment

The Empire Hotel Gympie is open Monday to Saturday 10am until midnight.
Sundays we open at 11am, close at 8pm. Our friendly staff do need their beauty sleep. The party, of course, would never stop if our patrons had their way.

There’s never a dull moment here. Along with Keno, we have countless events and loads of other entertainment to take your mind off the regular circus. When the bar closes, however, there are always those who don’t leave. These lucky ones will be relaxing in our excellent accommodation upstairs.

They’ll be logging on to our free Wi-Fi or watching the game uninterrupted in the privacy and comfort of our affordable, air conditioned rooms.

If you book a room here, you’ll enjoy your stay at The Empire.

You certainly won’t spend your time at The Empire worrying about the price of fish. Our chef does things with Barramundi that gets diners drooling. Arrive with a good appetite.
The only bone of contention is whether the steaks could get more tender—Rib Fillet or Rump? Then there’s the Prawn dishes—Chili or Garlic. Which is better? You be the judge.

Order a Schnitzel. Order anything on our menu. You’ll quickly come to the same conclusion as our regulars… there is really no better place in Gympie for a feed.

Bring your kids here for Sunday Lunch. You’ll get a kid’s meal free with every adult meal you buy! All kids meals come with a free soft drink or juice, as well as ice cream with strawberry, chocolate, or caramel topping.

We’re the number one pub in Gympie for good reason. Would you expect any less from an establishment that has roots going back to 1872? And today, The Empire continues to strike back!

Seize the day at The Empire Hotel Gympie. Bring your friends.

Fantastic place! Staff and customer service is great. Roast lamb and veggies plus Thai Green Curry is absolutely EXCELLENT. Portion size exceeds the money we paid. So glad we stopped for here!
