The Kauri Foreshore Hotel

The Kauri Foreshore Hotel. Glebe, down near the fish markets.
Limited wine list, and only a few beers on tap. The Blackwattle Bay foreshore walk has been done really well. Gorgeous day in the sun for a walk… the company was better than the pub.



The Carrington

Posted: August 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

-Bourke Street is busy around Green Square, but up near this part of Surry Hills it’s pretty quiet – the road has been deliberately narrowed to reduce through traffic and make it more attractive for the locals.

The Carrington has been one of the locals here since 1877. It’s a pub that has appeal to local residents – they have their own “locals card” which offers a 10% discount, as well as

  • “Locals Mondays” (Pasta and Pinot for $15)
  • Locals Happy Hour ($5 Beer, Wine & Spirits from 4-6pm every day when you show your Locals Card!), and
  • a Locals Badge Draw each night at 7, 8 and 9pm where $350 is up for grabs.

As the pictures below show, it’s dog friendly – gotta love a pub with human AND dog food on the menu!
