The Strawberry Hills has been improving. The Jazz is firmly back in place, with Sundays afternoons and a couple of evenings a week taken up with a selection of Jazz and Swing bands. Shame about the wobbly tables. We've been for the Sunday session and a wekkday session recently and had a blast. The pub is also on the $5 steak bandwagon, and seriously too, since they recently bought a massive poster round the corner from Forresters advertising it. There's more selection in the $5 deal than Forry's, and it's on all week, so this could be a viable alternative, if only they can find some tables that don't bloody wobble the whole time! It's still a bit dog-eared, of course, but that's the way it'll probably always be, until the area gets bentrified and merival move in to open a stylebar in its place (yeah right!) Besides, who likes a sterile, wood and chrome bar anyway? If they'd just fix the damn tables I'd probably turn up more often! Did I mention the tables all wobble?

The $5 steaks are good value and the staff are quite friendly. Not a very big bar area though.

Open late on weekends and bar staff are cool about being a little "under the weather". Juke box can be a bit moody and not play your songs sometimes. Great pub with a mix of different people!

Apart from the James Squire, SHIT beer is all you get of tap, its full and uncomfortable early, then full of alco Fagots from the S,O,H,K lata.

Can any other readers inform me where these $5 steaks come from? I can't see how local farmers could be supplying steak at that sort of price. Are they coming in from Argentina or somewhere?

Not a bad $5 steak, but the question is would you actually want to sit in there and eat it...?

Another competitor in the $5 steak marathon, and not too bad either.
