Toxteth Hotel Glebe

The Toxteth Hotel Glebe had a recent renovations and the new venue draws a fairly mixed crowd, uni students, glebe residents, and with the TATE gallery upstairs, an art crowd. The venue upon entry is a fairly decent local pub, but walk a bit to back, you get greeted with the warmly lit and festive outdoor/indoor space; a barn like space with lysalight roofing and timber beams. It’s warm, lovely, noisy and quite a good feeling place to be sitting down for a drink.

The Tate also serves up pub food. Mains at $25-28 but you can get: sliders at $4 each or 6 for $20 on a Wednesday. They brought it out on amusing high tea pastry holder.

Their bucket of wings is a bucket of grease (hey its true! but if you ordered it, what do you expect) which came with rather authentic Chinese chicken rice chilli sauce (?! Cool), a spiced tomatoe relish and a blue cheese sauce. It’s good eating but not for the faint of heart. As pub fare? It’s superb. $15 and there was a lot of wings to eat.

Tuna salad. Slice cooked tuna with wasabi sauce. Wasn’t a big fan of this. Salad was generi bits of salady greens probably from a masterbin, wasabi flavor lacking and the tuna was meant to be seared around so it’s still raw inside (assuming that’s what they wanted to do it as). Over cooked. A write off for me. Its not hard to get seared tuna right guys!

Still with the TATE gallery upstairs, great outdoorsy drinking area,the Tate is good. Drop by next the next time you’re in the area.

Standard bar prices.

Toxteth Burger Challenge. Every sunday after 12pm, you can order 1kg of burger+chips and do the toxteth burger challenge for $30. As an avid fan of ManVSfood and adam richman, this is a sure thing in the future.

TATE. The Toxteth also hosts an art gallery upstairs that does openings every week or so. Big Tick.

We’ll be back for the burger challenge.
