The Union Hotel, North Sydney

October 27, 2010 at 8:36 am (pub food) (, , , , , , )

Each week after I play tennis with a group of club O2 members we go to dinner at a pub in North Sydney. There are a number to choose from including the Firehouse Hotel and the Rag & Famish Hotel however we often go to The Union Hotel as it is just down the road.

The Union Hotel current (Spring) menu

The Union Hotel is a great pub, especially in winter with the fireplace, but also in summer as it has a nice outdoor area. They also label all the gluten free options on their seasonal menus. Throughout the year I have tried a number of their dishes including the;

  • Beetroot, feta and spinach salad – this was my absolute favourite and I was very upset when the spring menu came in and it was no longer available
  • Moussaka – this dish was on the winter menu and I was actually a bit disappointed in it as it didn’t have much flavour
  • Steak – this is a popular choice among the group being tender and very tasty!
  • Kingfish fillet – this dish is amazing, especially the crispy skin, and I will definitely order this one again before they change to the summer menu

On Wednesday’s they also have a special, $15 mussels with a glass or house wine or beer. I haven’t found out whether the tomato based sauce they come in is gluten free yet however my friend tried these the other night and said she would never eat anything else at The Union Hotel again, so they must have been pretty good! Next time we go there I am going to investigate whether I can have the mussels minus the baguette (replaced with veges or salad) and I will keep you updated.

So if you want a good pub meal near North Sydney check out The Union Hotel, just don’t get too attached to any of the dishes as they will only last for that season when the menu will change! Oh and even better, if you join their loyalty program you get 10% off every purchase (not including the specials)!
