What to choose

The gastro pub food scene is spreading its wings and arriving in all different suburbs. One of the latest to attract visitors and locals is fast becoming a favourite: the Beresfield Tavern Bistro. 

At the bistro, the Aussie pub scene has been embraced with great value daily specials such as the chicken schnitzel as well as the normal pub fare.

Monday is burger night ($12). Its the luck of the draw to see what burger the night's special will bring but I loved the Mexican burger most of all. Served with salad and chips, its real value for money. Tuesday night is the great Schnitty night ($8). Choose toppers such as Mexican, honey mustard, seafood in creamy garlic sauce, garlic cream sauce and an array of gravy choices such as dianne, mushroom, beef or a hot pepper cream.

Thursday nights are another great value favourite - the steak night ($15 with a free beer, wine or soft drink). Tender steaks cooked to your liking, again, with an array of toppers if you wish. Sunday also brings a beautiful roast - lamb, beef or pork ($10).

If you feel like just drinking your weight in beer and only want a snack - opt for the shared platter. Finger licking wings or ribs with chips or wedges, onion rings, salt and pepper squid and garlic bread. Great value at $10 for a small platter or $20 for a large.

Although so many tempting choices are available, one of the favourites is the lamb cutlets. Found on most pub menus, the bistro offers a different flavour in the chasseur sauce. Crispy coated tender lamb chops served with your choice of mash and veg or chips/veg or chips and salad. A winner.

The Beresfield Tavern Bistro caters for families, couples and groups. Under 12s are offered cheeseburgers, fish and chips, chicken breast with mash and veg, and spaghetti bolognese to name a few. All meals are served in generous portions with a large menu to suit all taste buds.


It is understandable why so many call this their local.

Beresfield Tavern is located at 195 Anderson Drive, Beresfield.
