Sydney’s best Gastro Pubs
Pub food has come a long way since the old counter meal days. Gone are the self serve salad bars, now we are in the era of the ‘gastro pub’.
Gastro pubs have upped the anti serving up restaurant worthy dishes, whilst retaining the relaxed feel and casual atmosphere of your local. Paddington and Woollahra have proven to be a mecca to the new breed of gastro pub and are home to many of our favourites. Lucky locals!
Check out my Top 10 best Gastro Pubs:
