Cold beers and hot dogs mean a rollicking good time at this Surry Hills pub
The Norfolk is a party pub. There’s no denying it's a bit on the hipster side but for every kid in an ugly knitted jumper, floppy hair and round glasses there are a bunch of locals in the front bar watching league and a fair whack of people who are just there for a cold beer and a basket of wings. The Norfolk is good at walking the fine line between scheduled activities and unstructured revelry. On a Monday you can have some good clean fun with $10 nachos plates. Or at the other end of the working week you can get loose on a Friday evening with $5 tequila shots and $10 Margaritas. In between they have cheap-taco Tuesdays, ten-dollar steak Wednesdays and barbecued ribs on Thursdays. When it comes to getting punters through the doors for a mid-week bevvy nothing motivates people like cheap pub food. You have to get here early if you want to nab one of the prized outdoor tables – the comfy black-and-white striped centre benches, once secured, are rarely surrendered for the evening. If sipping a simple Bloody Mary out of a recycled tomato tin while watching the Cleveland Street rainbow is more your style you’ll have better luck getting a table by the big, street-side windows. The pub is split into two distinct areas. The dolled-up left side is the territory of Inner Sydney’s bright young things, while the right side is more your traditional sports bar, but still deliciously pokie-free. And now you can head upstairs for a cracking good time at their in-house seafood shack, House of Crabs.
