It’ s a challenge to incorporate a modern-classic Aussie pub, bistro-and-beer-garden-type venue with a nightclub – in lesser hands the results could be a tacky disaster – but here in the heart of the Sutherland Shire, the Miranda Hotel has famously got it all right. The Miranda’s low-slung and stylish frontage is unmissable on The Kingsway, tucked in alongside the Westfield Miranda, and packs a whole lot of action inside. Head to the bar for relaxed, casual drinks, the bistro restaurant for quality modern Australian fare for lunch or dinner or the bits in between, take in some live music, or head to one of the Shire’s most renowned nightspots, Carmen’s Nightclub, with a roster of top resident and guest DJs. It’s many things to many people from all over Sydney, but remember, the Miranda Hotel will never abandon its meat-raffle-and-pool-table roots!
The Miranda Hotel has navigated the tricky move from Shire pub to modern multi-purpose entertainment, food and drink venue. It’s hit the sweet spot up on The Kingsway, the main drag through Miranda that is where much of the Sutherland Shire come for shopping and a slice of the action to the south of Sydney city, and it manages to house many different zones suited to many different tastes and intentions. The garden courtyard is a lushly-lit oasis back from the buzzing street scattered with bench seating, high tables and colourful stools, and is a much sought-after spot for lunch, dinner and the regular live music that graces the Miranda. If you’re canny enough you can catch a reservation for The Lane, a self-sufficient space with its own entrance that’s ideal for private functions and gatherings. And let’s not forget Carmen’s Nightclub, with a stellar catalogue of Australian and international electronic performers behind the decks and tweaking the gear every Saturday night.
As for the Miranda Hotel’s food, glorious food – this is one south Sydney bar and bistro restaurant that puts a premium on premium ingredients. The kitchen has cultivated close relationships with select suppliers to ensure every dish is pitch perfect. Beef, lamb, poultry and venison is from Origin Meats, seafood is bought from the fish market auctions on behalf of the hotel every day by Demcos Seafoods, seasonal fruit and vegetables are supplied by Select Fresh, and Luxe bakery keeps them in pastries, bread and all that floury goodness. White Horse Coffee’s served all day long, the bistro menu changes every four weeks, keeping pace with the seasons, there’s a (dog-friendly) Hair of the Dog weekend breakfast that’s one for the calendar, you can easily arrange a bespoke canape menu for your special event – there’s even sit-down formal dining and the ‘By Farm & Sea’ banquet menus for a fixed price per head.
Great pub food and a good Saturday night vibe, definitely a great place to go with friends for a catch up, food and drinks. Thanks Miranda hotel
Our local and we love it and go quite often for lunch and dinner with friends! Always a great experience, service and food is fantastic!
Excellent food and good drink selection. My friends and I are regulars due to the food options and the cocktails, especially the weekly special cocktails.
Food was great & to our delight we ended up playing bingo and trivia which made it even more fun. Staff were attentive and helpful.
Miranda Hotel is a bit of a surprise. Pleasant helpful staff and excellent well priced food - particularly the beef cheek and the parmesan potatoes.
The restaurant was pretty empty but the service was disappointingly slow and inattentive. Fish was cooked well but the pulled pork tacos were not nice at all. I guess it was standard pub grub but a bit too pricey. I mean catch of the day was $26 with only one side and one sauce! Really!
Food was nice and sitting out in open area was great. Atmosphere good - staff were friendly and all reasonably priced. Drinks at a good price as well.
The food is very nice for a bistro and is great value for money. The staff were all very friendly and it is a clean and modern venue.
Food was amazing as usual. Glad it is now open at dinner on Friday from 5.30?rather than 6pm. Second time we have been here and would highly recommend.
The place was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful the food and drink was some of the best I've had in a bistro environment.
