There are only a few hotels in Sydney that are good, and out of those there are perhaps only a few that are still able to do so sticking with their original look and feel. Norfolk Hotel, being one of the ones who succeed, is certainly one old-school pub with victorian living room atmosphere inside. At the back is a nice outdoor backyard where most of the visitors seem to gather. At the top level is a house of crab restaurants with an equally high reputation on its own.
In addition to serving drinks, they also serve quite a good range of food. Whilst most is pretty much pub-style food and some are also on specials during the weekdays, the main attraction would be on Sundays when they serve barbacoa, a shared plate of Mexican style meat platters served with salsas, sauces, tacos, fries and corn. To top up the Mexican theme off, they also serve soft shell tacos.
We also ordered some of their burgers and they were of good quality and of decent serving size. The price points are a little more than average but it was worth paying for the experience. And did I also mention them serving Bloody Mary in a tin can?
