The corn fritters are absolutely sensational! Lively, popular venue with great styling, atmos and service. Tends to be a queue for tables at peak times but it's worth it.

Plonk as far as the eye can see! A local's favourite, this place is buzzing on the weekend and a little easier during the week. Decor is more conventional than hipster, but the food and vino is great quality. Even more lively when there's a band. Relaxed, friendly service.

This pub was initiated by a group of pro musicians, including Tex Perkins, so it's perfect if you're keen on hearing some kick ass live music. Luckily, it's also well styled and well stocked with great grub and drinks.

Still your typical pub with occasional live music, but has the added extras of hearty vegan grub and a generous sized beer garden to get lost in on a hot summer's day.

Still one of my faves -- the iconic Retreat boasts great everything: food, music, decore, staff and drinks. If you're there late enough on a Friday or Saturday, you'll be treated to a change of pace by retro DJ tunes.
