One of the best days of the year is almost upon us, Australia Day! January 26th is one of our favourite days of the year here in Australia and for good reason. Famous for celebrating everything great about Australia, a good pub is a pre-requisite for the party day of the year and we have you covered here at The Dog Hotel in Randwick;. As it falls on a Friday this year, we’ll be celebrating from Thursday right through Sunday! On Thursday 25th January, we’ll be launching our special Australia Day collaboration with Australian Brewery called Two to Mango – Summer XPA. This 3.5% session ale will be just $6.50 a schooner or $15 a jug and we’ll have plenty of giveaways on the day too! On the day itself, we’ll be hosting the best Australia Day festivities in the Eastern Suburbs with, great beers and a party atmosphere to beat all others. Our 8-Tap Tropical Tap takeover; will feature crisp and fruity summer beers like Passion Victim Summer Ale from Two Birds and the delicious Coconut Golden Ale by Stockade. We’ll be offering amazing deals on classic Aussie beers too with VB, Carlton & Aus Brewery Cider for $5 and Coopers Session & Pale Ale for just $6.50. We’ll also have our famous pizza ovens cranking along with a full menu of mouth-watering culinary treats to suit any palette including our take on Aussie favourites like Hanger Sanga (coffee spiced hanger steak sandwich) and Banger Sanga (lamb sausage and caramelised onions). We’ll also have a great kid’s menu available for your little nippers so bring them along to join in the fun! Thanks to our friends at Victoria Bitter, we’ll be giving away a set of 4 x Platinum Tickets to the T20 cricket Vs New Zealand on February 3rd and thanks to Coopers we’ll have a retro fridge up for grabs on the day! Drop down on Saturday 27th January to listen to the Triple J Hottest 100 Countdown along with GABS Craft Beer Hottest 100 and sing, dance and drink along to your favourites! Finally, wind down on Sunday 28th January with our delicious roast dinner with all the trimmings for just $19 and jugs of Tropical Sunshine Cocktail for a mere 10 bucks. So make sure you get a dip in your southern-cross budgie smugglers down at one of the glorious beaches nearby or hit some backyard cricket with mates and family over the weekend but also get everyone down to the Dog Hotel in Randwick for an Australia Day Long Weekend Bonanza that you’ll be talking about for years!

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 would like to thank you and the staff who worked at our function on Saturday who provided seamless and efficient service. There were many compliments from those who attended on the quality of food and the venue itself. Can you please pass on our thanks to the Chef and the rest of the staff.

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.
