Review - Hotel Palisade



Alex Harmon sure is partial to a good British-styled pub...



With a convict-cum-chic menu, craft beers and views of the coat hanger, one of Sydney’s oldest pubs has reopened with a vengeance.



Overlooking Barangaroo, it still has a certain quietness, with a whiff of potential; and with plans to open a penthouse bar upstairs, the owners are surely banking on this.



Grab yourself a Feral Hop Hog ($6.50/$11), a pale ale that packs a punch of hops from the Swan Valley and pull up at the bar...




...or for a little speakeasy elegance, take the Governors Gimlet ($16), a petite cocktail with gin, celery liqueur and lime, into the parlour room and find a cosy, dark nook.



The food is very working class English, with a side of Sydney sophistication, like the Potted Chicken Liver Pate ($12) topped with cider jelly, or the Chicken and Tarragon Pie ($22) with minted peas and potato mash.



It’s exactly what you’d expect from a gastro pub a stone’s throw from The Rocks, full of revelry, even on a Sunday night.



And if you want to stick to historically themed revelry, you simply must end with smashed Toffee Cheesecake ($10) and a Spiced Negroni ($17) – the sweetness of the former will caress the bitterness of the latter nicely.
