Best Australian Pub Staple That’ll Get Your Hands Dirty


 Burger, Fish and Chips, Calamari


The best pubs in Australia are all about craft beer and good drinks, but good food to come along is a must. We love it because it is tasty and affordable.


There are some top meals picked daily at Aussie pubs. Among them the most popular are:


1. Chicken Parmigiana

From the Northern Territory to New South Wales and South Australia “The Chicken Parmy” is Australia´s most famous dish. The first reference to this meal in our country is in 1980 and became very popular since then. Originally from Italy, it is a dish that consists of breaded chicken breast with tomato sauce and cheese like mozzarella, provolone or parmesan.

According to the newspaper The Age, “its popularity has led to a specialized chicken parmigiana restaurant opening in Melbourne…”.


2. Fish and Chips

Nothing tastes bad if it’s fried in oil and that especially holds true with our good fish and chips, a famous craft beer bar Sydney staple. Pair the crunchy fish and mushy potato with tartare sauce and lemon to complete your comfort food experience.


3. Burger

Set the day right with a jam-packed pub burger set in place by a stick, a knife or even a flag! Customising a food staple to suit everyone’s taste is not an easy task but you will never go wrong with juicy meat and toasted buns.

Easily packed and gobble on the go burgers are one of those handy meals you’ll never mind getting greasy with. Enjoy these with one of our cold beers.


4. Calamari

If you promised yourself "Il find the perfect Calamari one day" then you must try The Dog Hotel Calamari.

Who would have thought squid rings browned with batter perfectly complement a quick easy chug of beer? Deep-fried and dipped in tartare sauce, calamari set your soul in the place, imploring you to just sit back, relax and enjoy the homey feel while it lasts.


The Dog Hotel offers The Dog Bistro menu that will surely satisfy your tastebuds. An American French-inspired menu plus 59 taps of craft beer make for the ultimate night out, special event, or function. We are one of the best craft beer bars in Sydney serving Australia´s favourite Pale Ale, Gold Rush and lots of beer types including the Batch Brewing Company production.


Choose your own "modus operandi" enjoy our beer garden or the front bar. Enjoy a cold Young Henry´s or our beer paddles to have a taste of different beers. Whatever you pick we can guarantee your day will be extra special.

I just wanted to send out thanks and compliments. Our function yesterday was amazing, both the food and venue were very impressive. We had so many comments from our guests on both how delicious the meal was and the great venue. Baptiste and his staff were excellent. Couldn't be happier with the day.

I had a great experience at the DOG last weekend. i had booked outside however due to the cold weather the team changed the booking at the very last minute and set our group of 20 up with a new spot indoors. Roast dinner was delicious and only had good feedback from other guests. Love the beer selection!!

Blake S – July 2016

We had a great day & everything went to plan. The music was brilliant & got the atmosphere going! 
Thanks so much for your help, I would definitely use the DOG again for a function or recommend you to others.

All guests had an amazing time and were really well fed. The staff at the DOG were very polite and accommodating, no issues with them at all.  Really impressive. The Manager was very helpful and attentive.  I did not need to ask for remind him or the chefs on anything. I did say thank you to the staff, but if you could please pass on my compliments again. I will definitely recommend your venue.

It was a good night. Our older guests were very impressed with the refurbishment of the hotel.We were very happy with the attentiveness and help of your Manager on the night....can't remember his name but seemed to have a French accent. Also bar staff good, particularly the young woman who came out from the bar and helped us during the night in various ways.
