MacAllisters Pub

This Scottish themed pub is located in what was once the Cobourg Jail. Now the King George Hotel, The Jailhouse is the cozy little pub on the main level.

The sit down bar faces you as you enter and bench seating is to the left while a narrow hallway leads off to the right with three small cozy booths. There is a games room complete with pool table and two lovely rooms that are perfect for larger groups such as sports teams' one is the Wood Room and the other the Sand Room. The pub itself is a great place to spend an evening but for those who like
something different there is the jail museum downstairs,
here there is a fascinating insight to life behind bars with many artifacts and stories from the jails history.
Down in the cells there are another two rooms for large
groups or private functions, many parties have been held
here amidst the cell blocks and bars. In the old exercise yard there is now a giant projection screen and the pub holds weekly movie nights out there in the summer. The bar has a large leafy patio with plenty of shade.
The staff are wonderful and will gladly share the history
of this grand old building with you.
