1 Love It
Save it

The Cauliflower on Botany Road is a Sydney institution. Over the years the comforting spectre of the giant cauliflower crossed with rake and hoe on its roof has been a sure sign you're nearly home for many Sydneysiders, and it's always been staunch Bunnies territory here. But change is the only constant, and the old boozer has had a full refurb. They've jazzed up the interiors and transformed the back room into a timber lined fun barn that is just crying out for a little boot scooting. If you want to get away from it all there’s a secluded, airy deck upstairs, but we like perching up in the public bar when they’ve got all the doors open and the afternoon sunshine is streaming in. The gentle country tavern vibes are still there in the sensible wooden tables and chairs, sports memorabilia, the trots on the telly and a refreshing pine-limey pinot grigio for only $5.5 a glass. But it’s a lot fresher these days and word has spread – there’re more family groups than salty regulars on Tuesday evening. If you’re a staunch resident of beer town they’ve got Squires, Heineken, Little Creatures, 4 Pines, White Rabbit and Young Henrys on tap, plus New, VB, and Super Dry playing the old hits. And best of all you can still get a cheap counter feed here thanks to daily food specials that won't break the bank.
