The Carrington For Dinner Is Always A Great Choice
Sydney is full of heaps of old bars and pubs, that back at the time of their conception and construction, were nothing more than a local watering hole. These days, as the city has moved-on around them, some have crumbled, but others have kept up appearances, transforming internally and externally into something more than a place to drink beer, but a place to see, be seen, eat and drink. Bon vivants, rally to Sydney!
One such place is The Carrington in Surry Hills: an unassuming local pub on the corner of two quiet inner-city suburban streets that attracts a local crowd, the gays, the drag queens and basically anyone who fancies a tipple of a feed. What more do you need?
The Carrington’s menu is well-developed, focusing on mainstay pub fare with a modern twist. Their burgers are luscious, sport some quality ingredients and do nothing if not enhance a classic in a truly moreish way. There’s nothing to complain about there! Add on top of that, a menu of starters that consist of buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing, aranchini and a housemade charcuterie plate with chicken pâté, there’s no going wrong.
Tuesdays at ‘The Carro’, as it’s affectionately known as to locals, means Tuesday trivia also known as Turbo Trivia hosted by Perth-come-Sydney drag queen Hannah Conda. It’s hilarious and steers clear of the otherwise crass drag queen shenanigans synonymous with other Sydneyside venues that focus on curse words, sexual humour and making the audience as uncomfortable as possible. This is the opposite and Hannah Conda does a sterling job of hosting, judging and involving the evening. Go and expand your cranium.
The Carrington is open seven days a week and can be found at 563-565 Bourke Street, Surry Hills.
