Redfern is a buzzing inner city suburb of Sydney, and for many its beating heart is The Tudor Hotel, an unmissable half-timbered edifice on the corner of Redfern Street and Pitt Street. Under new management by the W. Short Hotel Group, The Tudor Hotel has undergone a few changes, bringing a local favourite up with the state of play when it comes to good food, drink and entertainment. This pub has all it takes to become a modern Australian classic: a courtyard and upstairs terrace for summer sessioning, bottle shop, a bistro selection of robust favourites, and a drinks list that makes other Sydney pubs blush.
Rock up with a reservation at The Tudor Hotel and you’re set for an afternoon or evening of fantastic modern Australian cuisine, a broad range of beverages to imbibe, and an atmosphere that’s hard to find elsewhere in Sydney. The Tudor is a rambling complex of a pub on the corner of Redfern Street and Pitt Street, with the courtyard and upstairs sun-terrace a sought-after spot for summer sessions over food and drink. As for liquid refreshment, whatever your style The Tudor’s got you covered – a rotating ber of the month for the hopheads, a long list of Australian varietals for those who like their wine, and popular cocktail pitchers – Pitt St Pimms, Rabbitoh mojito, sangria, margaritas and more – to put paid to the afternoon sweats.
You can tackle The Tudor Hotel’s bistro menu any number of ways, treating this Redfern local as a convenient spot for an express snack or to convene with mates over some a few shared plates like the sticky and spicy wings or crumbed South Australian prawns with lime aioli. Ramp up heartier restaurant fare with main courses like The Tudor house steak, a hefty, grass-fed Black Angus Scotch fillet or the signature Tudor Wagyu beef burger with caramelized onions, bacon, tomato, aged cheddar, pickles, BBQ sauce, American mustard, finished with a crunchy nacho topping. Sydney’s little ones are welcome at The Tudor, too, and for them the kitchen’s whipped up a pint-sized chicken schnitzel, fish and chips, or pasta Bolognese. A busy spot at the best of times, The Tudor Hotel is best enjoyed when you book a table in advance.
Booked for a table of 4, arrived to find a table of 6 which was good as we had 2 extras join us at last minute. Ambience in the bistro area was fine, family friendly, noise level can be somewhat of a problem but not excessive. Large windows open to the street, but also AC avail so temp was comfortable. Selective menu not extensive, daily specials that rotate, Check the website for menu prior to arriving helps. Being popular there are constant orders into kitchen, you can check this as they have receipts externally visible so you can see how long the wait will be. We were feed and watered in an hour, so very happy.... the food tasty and ample. The wait staff and overall service was excellent, manager checked and assisted with an alternative menu request (Vegan) without bother. Recommend that you do reserve a table as every time I have been there in the 6- 8 pm time slot it has been pumping even mid week. A great place to eat in Redfern.
Attentive friendly staff and delicious meals. Also got to love a 250ml wine pour option. Cocktails were well made too. You can use app Clip here.
Friendly staff. Good food. Nice ambience. The booking system worked really well. The Hotel has lots of different spaces suitable for small to larger groups. I’d definitely go there and use the booking system again.
Some of the dishes had run out but the meals we had were very good- the staff were very friendly and helpful and were very accommodating to my 85 yr old aunt. Nice place good atmosphere.
Decent pub food for the price you would expect in the inner city ($20ish per meal). Mostly nice staff members, however, the guy on the bar who took our orders was unhelpful. The Pitt St Burger was a solid 7/10.
Very happy with the meal and service was amazing!!!...having just relocated from adelaide, the tudor will now become my new regular for a friendly meal and casual drink :)
Excellent food and a good food menu. The shank and shiraz is delicious and good value. Would definitely eat here again. Bar tenders are friendly.
