This foodie pub proudly boasts “no pokies, no TV”. What its owners have created is a friendly space where people like to talk, eat and drink – and the latter option is a particular pleasure as there are 13 beers on tap. The food could be wallaby shanks with HP Sauce or pulled pork with spicy corn and a fried egg. There are a number of gastropub food trends on offer, too, such as the beef-cheek croquettes with smoked tomato or southern fried chicken with kimchi and sesame. For those a little less adventurous, there’s always a well-cooked and above-par chicken parmigiana or steak.
