What’s new at The Rover Sydney

Cheese hands

In a move that promises to delight patrons old and new, Liquid and Larder has ushered in a wave of exhilarating updates to Surry Hills’ favoured local haunt, The Rover. Pivoting to better serve the community’s tastes, The Rover will now usher guests through both floors of its enticing space, from Monday to Saturday between 4pm-12am. The traditional separation of the vibrant cocktail bar downstairs and the seafood-centric restaurant above has dissolved, and instead one finds a cohesive venue offering both drinks and dishes on each level in a seamless experience of world-class cocktails and a reimagined bistro menu. The hospitality maestros behind established dining institutions such as Alfie’s, Bistecca, and The Gidley, have been the brain behind The Rover for over a decade. Although it has transformed from its original incarnation as The Wild Rover, the establishment retains its essential character—a testament to Liquid and Larder’s commitment to the ambience of a cherished and spirited neighbourhood spot. Owner James Brady expresses a heartfelt vision behind the venue’s refreshed approach, “The Rover has always served as a snug and vibrant backdrop for both casual and intimate gatherings, much like visiting a cherished friend’s home. By combining and expanding the food and drink offerings, we’re responding to our guests’ desires and readying ourselves to welcome more members from our community through our doors every evening.” Noteworthy among the myriad of enhancements is the Rover’s homage to beef lovers, the iconic Gidley burger, which will be made available outside of the CBD for the very first time,… Read More

With heat level ranging from mild to ‘really f#cking hot’, there is something for everyone with wings done four ways, as well as chicken tenders and other snacks.
