The Buckingham Hotel

21 Buckingham Street

The Buckingham is our local, and we pop in occasionally for a drink or dinner. It is a classic old school suburban pub, which unfortunately wont be the same for too much longer, as it has been sold to a developer, the current lease runs out in March 2011. The crowd is mixed, and even though we aren't there that often, the bar staff know us.

The menu is pretty classic for an Aussie pub. We had dinner the other night, I went for the lambs fry and bacon,with gravy, mash and veggies, all for $10.50! Never a fan as a kid, I've developed a taste for liver these days, the whole dish was well cooked, the beans being the best of the veggies. The porterhouse was good too, huge, with a very spicy green peppercorn sauce!

The Buckingham is well worth a visit if you are in the area, it's almost like stepping back in time, there is even a cocky in the courtyard out the back.

  1. Looking good! I have wanted to try this place forever. I must go past it once a day on the sneaky rat run to Victoria St and always check out what the special of the day is.

  2. Yep the $8.50 roast special on Sundays and $11 parma and pot are amazing deals! You probably go past our place on your short cut...
