A Pub With No Beer is the title of a humorous country song made famous by Australian country singer Slim Dusty

The song was adapted by Gordon Parsons from the original poem “A Pub Without Beer” by Dan Sheahan of Ingham, North Queensland. In 1957, “A Pub With No Beer” became the first Australian single to go gold and was the biggest-selling record by an Australian at that time.

According to the legend, the pub with no beer in the song of the same name is the Cosmopolitan Hotel at Taylors Arm, near Macksville between Coffs Harbour and Kempsey on the NSW north coast, and it ran out of beer once when cut off by floods.

Today the Taylors Arm Pub is a popular tourist spot and is full of historical memorabilia celebrating the song and Slim Dusty.

    Hi Adrian
    Great photo of the old pub, I was there myself about 2 months ago, Good spot for plenty of photos, and the best Hambergers I have ever eaten and big with it.
    Cheers
    Rod.

  • Hi Rodney. I agree – it’s a great spot for a feed and for photography. Apparently they’re really suffering because the only sealed road in has been closed due to a land-slip and a lot of tourist traffic is staying away because of it.
