The Tudor Hotel, Redfern

The Tudor Hotel dishes up homely pub fare.

It was 8pm on a Friday night when we paid a visit to The Tudor Hotel in Redfern. As we approached this local hangout, my date hesitated. He’s been here before. Surely we’re not going here for dinner. I quickly reassured him that the owners of the Glenmore Hotel and The “Aussie” (The Australian Heritage Hotel) took over The Tudor a few years ago. Expect a fresh vibe at this friendly local pub.

As we entered the main dining area was full of groups tucking into homely dishes whilst watching the footy. On the other side of the pub there was a meat raffle in full swing. The original wooden bar has been kept as is along with the exposed brick and soft furnishings, adding to the homely atmosphere.

Outside, there is a narrow beer garden. We were there on a cold evening so didn’t make use of it but come summer it would be great place to sit with a drink and soak up the sunshine.

We settled into a big table by the window and scanned over the menu. Refreshingly, The Tudor isn’t trying to be anything that it’s not – it offers standard pub fare at a decent price, with weekly specials. On our visit, there was a roast chicken special with chips, slaw and gravy ($18).

Feeling a bit fancy, I ordered the pan fried salmon fillet ($27) with creamy lentils and spinach. The salmon was cooked perfectly with a crispy skin. The creamy lentils matched the fish, but that didn’t stop me from stealing chips from my date’s plate. He went for classic pub grub, ordering a chicken parmigiana ($25).

If you are with a big group for drinks, there are plenty of share dishes and snacks to choose from like the Tudor’s classic beef nachos ($18) and the cheesy chilli arancini ($12). Vegetarians are also given some choice with dishes like the cauliflower salad ($16) with walnuts and chickpeas and the pumpkin ravioli ($19) with pistachio and caramelised sage butter.

Redfern’s The Tudor Hotel, like the suburb itself, has undergone a facelift but it has kept its original character and local community feel. If you are looking for a break from trendy Inner West gastro pubs and just want a relaxed venue to enjoy a beer and parmie, The Tudor is the place to hang out.
