I'm personally very fond of this pub. Besides the marvellously eclectic decor (fairground knick knacks, asymmetric tables, painted ceilings, stone cherubs and laughing clowns). It has one of the best beer gardens in this part of Sydney, consisting of a large canvas-covered area with cocktail bar, food, large-screen TV and pots and pots of trailing plants.
We're told it's been painted in stages by a 'resident artist' - and the effect is superb - one of the pub's most striking features is its decor.
Food is a popular option here, in the partially-covered restaurant out back. You can sit with a beer and a pizza accompanied by birdsong and the chatter of a young, enthusiastic crowd. It's not too far from the student areas, but then it's not too close either, so the mixture of clientele is well varied.
Unfortunately, on our most recent review visit, we were refused permission to take pictures. We'll be having a word about this, and hope to have some shots of the decor and an updated review to tempt you in at a later date.
