Had an excellent lunch here today. The chicken schnitzel was of a good size, lovely panko style crumbs and very moist. Chips were hot and tasty. The side salad had a refreshing plum dressing. My wife was very happy with her steak. The selection of...vegetables was quite generous and she was happy with everything on the plate. Friendly service and very reasonable prices. Will gladly come back.More

Atmosphere is nice, larger venue for sydney. Food good, reasonable price for the centre of sydney. Nothing absolutely stood out for me but again nothing overly detracted from the experience. Was very popular and had to book to get a seat. Only negative was the...main and entrere came out at the same time. Worth a lookMore

Headed into the City to celebrate our end of year business Christmas drinks. Due to Covid most places not taking bookings or booked out. Last minute decision meant we happened upon Red Oak. What a gem. THE BEST COOKED STEAK we’ve had. Seasoned perfectly by...someone in the know and a true medium rare with a jus you could drink. Simple dish paired with tender beef ribs that kept us guessing on the sauce (we think hoisin based). Service was friendly and welcoming and quite a few cheeky gin n sodas ended the night perfectly.More

My wife and I went to Redoak and did the 5 course degustation with matching beers. The whole experience from start to finish was excellent. Great food,beer, atmosphere and the information given by Janet who was our host was fantastic. It was our second time...there and we will be back. We sat in the bar after the event and had a few more beers and some small plates of food (which are large serves). Fantastic night, recommend to everyone 👍More

Great pub atmosphere without the excessive noise level. Very wide range of beers and beverages available. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the drinks and the menu. Food was amazing, good sized serves to accompany drinks. Lovely to chill out and relax.

We went here on a Groupon booking for 6 people for lunch. Service was great, food was wonderful and everyone loved trying the different beers. My only gripe was the Brut sparkling wine. Not the best taste out there. Food is plentiful and we were...treated so well by management. Thanks for the complimentary desserts for the two birthdays we were celebrating!More

Booked a table for Friday night, and found great beer, food and service. This is the first time I’d been here, but came on the recommendation of my sons. Easy to get Covid checked in, and quickly to our table. Guest beers we’ll explained, and...the young lady who looked after our table really good. The food was fairly average for a pub, but the beers were good. I’ll be going back again.More

To my eye as a non-parent, yes, there are both outdoor tables and dining hall tables that feel like they'd be kid friendly. It's not a hectic beer hall.
