Hotel Mosman

Daily, $10
Doesn't matter whether it's Monday or Sunday here, you can get a cheap steak everyday. You'll get a 300g porterhouse steak served with mash or chips and your choice of pepper, bearnaise, creamy mushroom sauce, red wine jus or Napoli sauce and fresh parmesan.


The Lord Gladstone

Thursdays, $10
The Gladdy dishes out a 250g rump steak and salad special on Thursdays. While this place is usually more a party pub, the relaxed weekday atmosphere makes it a good place to get a gentle run-up on the weekend.
