Ahhh, the allure of a friendly local pub.
The Kirribilli is an easy stagger from Milsons Point train station, and an even easier stagger towards several Indian and Thai restaraunts down the road. It's definatly a local - everything about it, from the carpets to the bloke who offers you tickets in the Friday night meat raffle, screams "watering hole".
That said, the place is loved by all. Friday night sees a huge gathering of workers from surrounding office towers drowning themselves in the reasonably priced beers. Bar staff walk around with trays of snacks, which are appreciated by all, especially if you happen to have started the weekend with a bang. The pokies, situated downstairs, are nearly always empty, and are usually the only easy place to find a seat over the weekend.
Sundays see a crowd of pre-"Sounds" revellers starting their day/night in a fairly loud fashion, so going to the cosy bistro for a quiet meal at the cosy Bistro may not be the best idea on this particular day. On any other night, it serves great "back to basics" pub food at good prices. Guaranteed to comfortably line many a stomache.
Going during the week is a great way to relax and down some serious ale. It's a Tooheys Old kinda place, but it makes for a nice break from stainless steel bars and smoked glass benches.
Highly Recommended .
