If you love craft beer this is the best place in Sydney- local independent passion - try the honey beer- they have lots on tap and bottled- you can get a tasting sample with snacks to match . When you are finished go to the dining room- the chips are Fat and great with malt vinegar and sea salt

The Red Oak has some great beers and is a nice place for group drinks or small functions. The food is fair but slightly overpriced.

This was a farewell for a work colleague. We did not have a booking, however were able to get one walking in. We were well looked after at the bar and in the restaurant.

Have been visiting the Redoak for a number of years. If you love craft beers then this is the place for you. They regularly change their beers to keep your palate entertained and I have never had a bad beer yet.

I was only here for beers, but I will have to come back at some point and try the food. Great range, lots of different choices and explanations were laid out well in booklets at the bar, and were labelled on the blackboard behind. I was there on a Friday evening and it was so busy that at times I... More

Tucked away in Clarence Street, but convenient to bus stops. We were pleasantly greeted and offered dining in the beer/wine bar area or the restaurant/table service side. We chose the table service, but both options were enticing and the menus are the same in each. Relaxing atmosphere with plenty of speciality beers and locally sourced wines available. There were several... More

Had our Christmas party at Redoak last night. Fabulous atmosphere and food was great. Not really being a beer drinker I got into the cocktails - delicious! The staff were amazingly attentive and also added to the fun. What great people. Thanks so much especially to Shayna and Keiran.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
