Well, with discouraging words from the cabbie when we told him our destination, we headed to the Robin Hood. After a quick glance at my dress (we were headed for cocktails later) we were bluntly told that this was a Local’s pub, for Local People. Ones who love their rugby and their pokies. We went to the front bar, as the back bar definitely looked like a local and pokie-ridden den.

With one pool table positioned between the two lounges, and a stack of TVs showing sports programs not to mention the odd video game, the place didn’t seem to hold too many attractions for the discerning female pub-goer. On a Saturday night, there were only a handful of customers, all of whom looked decidedly Local.

However with its casually subdued dark green/polished wood decor coupled with the odd leather sofa, a smattering of 1950’s B/W movie posters and a stack of tables and chairs, the atmosphere is actually pretty inviting. It’s a low-key place, clearly smartened up not too long ago with friendly staff and happy customers.

Plenty of space to sit and talk, a person could easily get very comfortable here over a couple of beers/hours. Provided the company was good. The locals seem friendly and I would definitely spend lazy Sunday arvos here, watching sport and drinking beer with a good group of mates if I were a local.

With an extensive range of cocktails, wines, regular happy hours, a trivia night and no doubt permanent sport on the telly, if you are in the area and looking for a relaxed and unpretentious place to grab a drink, I definitely recommend sticking your head in. If you are a new resident of the area, I reckon it would be well worth your while to think about making this place your local. After all, they look after their own, these Local People.
