MEET MR P.P.
Our restaurant is located on the very site which once housed the Postmaster General and family for over 100 years. The old Post Office was next to our building on the corner of Nerang and Scarborough St. To celebrate the rich history of Southport, we are named after the first ever Post and Telegraph manager, Mr P.P. Agnew, who served from 1883 – 1886. Mr P.P. wasn’t just a regular Postmaster, he was also an avid playwright, actor, photographer, poet and illustrator in the community.
As a true creative entertainer, P.P.A would write and act in plays for the communities he served. We have included drawings, songs and poems written by P.P.A in our menus and throughout the venue.
A massive thank you to the entire extended Agnew family for their assistance in providing imagery from P.P.’s sketchbooks and travel diaries. He was a larger than life character and we are truly honored to tell his story and continue the legend of P.P. Agnew.
