The Rag and Famish Hotel is a heritage listed building located amongst the high rise office buildings in North Sydney. It is a popular place for those in the area to come down for lunch, meet up with friends and enjoy some bistro pub food in a relaxing environment. Their bistro is known for their pies.

The Rag and Famish ( love the name, please don't ever change it) has been going for a while. It's still churning out good food and drinks, of course. North Sydney is a fun place to work, and even more fun to socialise after work at the Rag. Lots of ex-private school kids on a Thursday night, but don't let that stop you going. Worth a try.
A well placed pub in the heart of the North Sydney business district. This, of course, means that it is almost always packed out. However, it does decent food and nicely priced drinks. On a Friday night they have live music and the outdoor area is a nice place to sit and wind down after a busy work week.
This is where we pretty much lived whilst being at uni. We always came to the Rag to come up with ideas on new projects, what better way to get the creative juices flowing whilst having a drink. The food was actually quite tasty too! The place itself could go through a refurb but overall a great pub.
If you found a Killian in Ireland and rove down middle street wearing a green suit, at 12pm on a Wednesday, you couldn't get as more middle then this place. It's so middle of the road pub. The staff do their job, the drinks are right on average for North Sydney (so a little expensive) and if I had to explain the food - middle of the road. Sure a little pricey, but normal forread more
I have just came back from Rag & Famish Bistro for a lunch break with work colleagues and for the first time after frequenting this place in the past have I finally discovered their upper-level heaven which I believe was previously not open to bistro customers. The place is far quieter than its downstairs counterpart, with plenty of proper tables and seats and politeread more
Oh what can I say about this North Sydney icon... This is the place lots of workers in the North Sydney area flock to for a tradition pub experience. It is currently undergoing a few renovations but the timber decor still remains a prominent feature. The food has improved with quite delicious salt and pepper squid and some hearty pies now on the menu. They alsoread more
Although I've only been here several times only during lunch time, I would say that this place is good. The food (talking about my favourite salt & pepper calamari) is generously served and their guinness pie is also a must-try. Just make sure you turn up early as it gets busy very quickly and you might find yourself queueing for meals and waiting for seats.
I have been to the 'Rag & Famish' twice in the last two weeks, since moving to North Sydney. I would definitely recommend the Friday Karaoke night, which was very entertaining. The drinks are reasonably priced and although I haven't eaten there, the food I have seen looks substantial and of good quality.
