SYDNEY | The Woolpack Hotel is a pub in Redfern that looks like a typical Sydney pub from the outside. Step inside, however, and while the traditional pub atmosphere continues, a quick glance at the taps reveals that there’s a lot more going on here.
The Woolpack was taken over by new owners in 2016, and they set about improving the quality of food and beer on offer while remaining true to the venue’s ethos of being a pub. There’s carpet, dark wood furnishings, and low lighting, with some outdoor seating for when the weather is good.
Across the Woolpack’s nine taps you’ll find a selection of Australian craft beers from breweries like Bentspoke, Akasha, and Beerfarm. There are further craft options in the fridges, along with a decent selection of wine and spirits for those looking for a non-beer alternative. The food menu is split into three sections – pub classics, share plates, and seasonal dishes. Think things like steak, burgers, salads, fish & chips, and schnitzel.
Live sports is shown on TVs around the bar, and Thursday night trivia is always very popular (make sure you book a table for trivia in advance if you’re interested).
