A Stitch in time comes with barrel-aged booze and a damn fine steak

It’s a whole lot of fun to pop through the faux-dressmaker’s shopfront and head down the stairs to Stitch Bar, where it feels like you’re drinking in the belly of a frigate. The dark timber, hanging lanterns and wooden barrels evoke a time of pirates and doubloons, but happily there’s a lot more than salted pork rations on the menu.

Eats take their cues from the USA, with hot wings, a Southern fried chicken burger, and poke – it’s a raw tuna salad from Hawaii. But the standout dish is the rib-eye, which is a beautiful, tender piece of meat for two that has been dry rubbed, smoked and slow roasted. They score good grades on the drinks front too. The Cuba Calling #2 is a sharp, bright take on a Daiquiri, made with the citrusy punch of pineapple, or for something that takes a little more consideration, order from their in-house barrel-aged spirits list.

The cocktails are great but this place was full of backpackers and I saw a woman wearing thongs. Packed with people and no air con. Not worth the hype and definitely not four stars
