Cycling out from Pyrmont via Hunter’s Hill to Woolwich is a good old 11 or 12 km, which our intrepid (and stunningly unfit) reporter managed in a respectable 35 or so minutes, arriving a touch before opening time. Killing a few minutes around this highly picturesque suburb was no problem though and pretty soon I was settled in the Bistro bar with a large soda water and a Beck’s. It’s election day, so not quite your average Saturday, and I’m expecting more people to pop in for a quick one today than normally, hence the grand tour. However I digress, back to the pub. Large, open, airy, light and slick are all words that could apply amply here, with a selection of different bars indoor and outdoor and a much sought after upstairs balcony with view. Well, it’s an affluent suburb, what did you expect, sawdust? A beautiful view out over the harbour accompanies a solid selection of beers and wines and a fantastic looking Bistro Menu. Unfortunately since I’m planning on doing another 40km or so I can’t really tuck in – and this is my first and last beer before I hit Mosman sometime this afternoon. Never mind, I’ll just enjoy it all the more. The Pier has special evenings Wednesday through Sunday, including $10 pasta, $15 Ribs, 2 for 1 cocktails and free pool on Sundays, so while it’s hardly cheap as chips you cn certainly make the most of it. Having never been to this part of the ccity, though, I’m very much impressed and wouldn’t mind coming back here for a relaxing summer afternoon a few times this year. So far, my pick of the North Shore by far. I don’t want to leave.

PubGoer from Balmain
Made my first (and only so far) visit here was three weeks ago for a freinds party. Was pleasantly surprised. Initially looked like a little corner pub, but very spacious inside - and taqstefully decked out. Upstairs had a private function room - 2 or 3 bars for drinking and sitting back, 2 eating areas and little 'bungalows' out the back for private parties. Each 'bungalow' could hold maybe 30 guests, and all were booked out. One surprise was the sheer volume of people there on Saturday. Must have been several hundred, due to functions, dining and general drinking. Bar staff were extremely good, even escorting us to the bungalow our party was situated in. Crowd seemed to vanish by 11pm, however not a bad place to start the evening and the atmosphere was good. The only complaint was the price of a shout - the two girls with my mate and I were drinking wine by the glass off the wine list (which was fairly extensive for a pub) and my mate was in a Becks mood - so each round of 4 drinks was $28. As the girls weren't paying, 4 shouts saw me $100 lighter, but hey - a great pub none the less.
