Overlooking the leafy Harry Noble Park, the new Swanson Hotel is a welcome addition to the burgeoning dining and bar scene in Sydney and the colourful village atmosphere of Erskineville. Formerly the Kurrajong Hotel, this old favourite bar has been taken over and undergone an extensive refurbishment by the Balmain Pub Group, known for the popular Riverview Hotel in Birchgrove and the Balmain Hotel in Balmain. Under the guidance of former AHA chef of the year Brad Sloane, the Swanson Hotel has opened up level 1 for the first time with a 100 seat restaurant which includes a sleek new cocktail bar focusing on fresh, delicious cocktails, a private dining room and simple clean food with a gastro pub influence. The ground floor features more casual style booth seating and offers simple delicious bar fare such as a Wagyu Burger, a Crispy Duck, Orange, Quinoa, Treviso & Pinenut Salad and Chicken Schnitzel’s. Pizzas are also made in house including gluten free pizzas, which are all on offer both day and night, and of course; we screen all the important games of the season, no matter your code. Sticking true to all the essence of what makes a great pub, there’s a focus on craft beer as well as 12 classics on tap. Happy hours from 4pm to 7pm which includes $4 house wines & spirits and all beers on tap.
