Description

P.J. O’Reilly’s is an Irish pub in the Melbourne Building in Canberra, the Australian Capital Territory. The logo of the business is a lion rampant (in profile standing erect with forepaws raised) commonly found in medieval heraldry. Their accompanying slogan, ‘The Tradition Continues’, suggests that old-time service and food are available, perhaps in the pub’s ‘The Olde Bailey Room’. The Old Bailey is the Central Criminal Court found in London and first mentioned in the late sixteenth century.
