I had great memories of a nicely charred steak of 10 years ago, and my latest visit reconfirms it. I had the Beef Two Ways, and the sirloin, done medium-rare, was juicy and smoky from the barbeque. The beef ribs were nice and tender, fell off the bone. We also ordered a full dish of fish and chips to share... More

If you love craft beer this is the best place in Sydney- local independent passion - try the honey beer- they have lots on tap and bottled- you can get a tasting sample with snacks to match . When you are finished go to the dining room- the chips are Fat and great with malt vinegar and sea salt

The Red Oak has some great beers and is a nice place for group drinks or small functions. The food is fair but slightly overpriced.

I was only here for beers, but I will have to come back at some point and try the food. Great range, lots of different choices and explanations were laid out well in booklets at the bar, and were labelled on the blackboard behind.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
