Surly’s is now open in Surry Hills in the spot of the old Table for 20/Sticky Bar. A couple of things, you can no longer enter round the back – there’s a coldroom there and the entry now is on the street side at 182 Campbell Street. It’s a beer hall and american BBQ joint and the startling transformation of the space is sort of impressive. A lot of flannel and cut off denim jackets when we visited; there’s a honky tonk feel very much in keeping with the stylin and the venue looks great. We wonder what happened to the attic/roof bar space.
Okay that’s all very different. (see @tablefor20). Its feel like an established midwestern tavern. It’s all still too new looking having that artifice like quality but it should wear in soon enough and feel more authentic. Missing? Taxidermied animals and a mechanical bull.
Yeah for the Grifter IPAs. We don’t mind guzzling them. Hoppy. Robust.
Keep these offers in mind. We’d return for the specials.
The Surlys beef burger. $14. Yes. Hamburger!
$20 Pork Spare Ribs, 2x sides and corn bread.
$11 Chicken Thing with 2x sides and cornbread.
Barbercue options were also great with good smoke and flavour from both the ribs and Chicken. We also really enjoyed the mac and cheese (that kick of spice) and the green beans. It’s BBQ in surryhills. If you’re a sports fan, we happened to be here the night of State of Origin and Surly’s was going off in that sports bar sort of fashion. There’s an extensive menu here so check in. We want some fried chicken.
