The Observer Hotel, The Rocks
The Observer Hotel is a great little pub located at The Rocks, it’s a classic venue and offers up a wide selection of Australian beers on tap and typical pub grub. The restaurant venue at the back of the pub serves up delicious items including pub steak and a good choice of burgers.
Onion Rings with aioli
I was surprised to find that the onion rings were actually my favourite item on the menu, I find that a lot of places don’t do onion rings as well as I wish they did but The Observer Hotel is spot on. The onions are cooked until they are soft and sweet while the batter is very substantial and crispy.
The grilled fish for the day was a fillet of barramundi served with a side of tartare sauce for the fish and a nice salad dressed in balsamic vinegar.
It’s been a long time since I’d spotted prawn cutlets on a pub menu so these were a great nostalgic order. The prawn cutlets were quite crispy and complimented well by the interesting tangy sauce served on the side.
The Observer Hotel is a classic Australian pub, located in the historic rocks district which means it can be quite a busy venue especially towards the end of the working week. It may look quite small on the outside but once you move inside you quickly realise that it’s quite a large venue with a small beer garden and a cosy little laneway located just off to the side of the building.
