Traditional tile and Tooth's Brewery posters.

I called in on a Wednesday, about 9pm for my first visit. It was quiet, but I'm told Thursday and Friday are the serious nights here.

The bar itself is a half-tile bar in the manner of a traditional Sydney corner pub, adorned with patterned carpet and plenty of seating. The peninsular bar buts onto the kitchen, creating an elongated 'J shape for the actual bar. The decor is pretty simple, a few Guinness posters, a boxing poster and some promos. It's not overstated.

The soundtrack for tonight is chilled, Bob Marley, a little Sting, some 70s pop-funk.

On tap we have Guiness, VB, Reschs, New, Cascade and Carlton - so pretty much the standard NSW selection and all at a decent price. The KB is a stone's throw from Central, and in most towns I've found there's a concentration of, er.. seediness around the main railway station, but it doesn't seem to be in evidence here, though a further couple of visits should establish this for sure. I'd actually like to see this place after a cricket or footie match at the SCG - Foveaux street runs more or less straight from Moore Park to Central, and the pubs further up get a lot of trade from weary fans. I could picture the KB being mobbed as a last-pub-before-the-train option.

More to come later.....

If you want a real pub, here it is. Theres not a lot of space inside so it gets packed quickly on a Thurs/Fri. The good news is the beer lines are short so the quality is spot on, also, in summer you just drink out on the footpath which needless to say is the goods.

Great place for a drink after the footy. Fantastic food, great atmosphere. I recomend the noodle bar for a bite to eat.
