    Must do Sydney icon. A pub that's been consistently great for decades. The oak tree lit with fairy lights also nice to sit under for beer & pizza.

    Good selection of beers on tap, nice pizzas, and that beautiful tree! Also a brilliant concept where you can drink beers in the bottle shop :)

    One of the best outdoor seating areas in the north shore. Great atmosphere for anyone. Food is good. You must check out that amazing tree!!!

    Check out the light fittings in the front bar (1936) - they look like ornamental buttholes. Artsy!

    Absolutely love this pub, heaps of pool tables and areas to drink and smoke. A beautiful big oak tree in the centre of a large courtyard just tops it all off. Highly recommend to anyone

    The calamari appetizer is small but really tasty. You'll not be disappointed by the mussels and frites. I suggest the provencale.

    Casual pub where you can get really good food. I recommend the pizzas and of course the DIY BBQ meat is excellent too. Friendly staff with a relaxed feel and a really nice beer garden with the Oak.
