PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
North Sydney's favourite local, the Rag and Famish, has been pouring beers and plating pub grub for hungry locals over the past 160 years. It's not the sleekest shop on the block, but this old girl keeps the punters happy with bistro and a la carte dining, and a choice of three bars. Housed in a heritage-listed building, this classic Aussie pub dishes up lunch and dinner seven days a week. The ground-level bistro is famous for its Famish "crispy lid" pies – choose from beef and Guinness, chicken and leek, or shepherd's – served with hot chips and salad or peas and gravy. The usual pub offerings of seafood baskets, schnitzels, roasts and 350g rump steaks have all made the list, or peruse the specials on offer. The dinner menu extends to a popular lamb curry with saffron rice, minted yoghurt and pappadums, beer-battered fish and chips with tartare, salt and pepper calamari and a Famish mixed tasting plate.

Alternatively, leave the din behind and venture upstairs to the hotel's level-one a la carte restaurant. Start with bruschetta or fresh sourdough, then continue on to twice-cooked pork belly served with prunes, coleslaw, pear salsa and a balsamic glaze, or the pan-seared lamb loin with ratatouille and olive tapenade. End sweetly with poached pears in red wine and a dollop of vanilla ice-cream or get cosy on the downstairs lounge with a drop from the bar. North Sydney's oldest pub also keeps things interesting with weekly promotions, events and entertainment.
