Like the best of us, Harry doesn't function until he gets his morning puppaccino 😁
Feels like spring already ☀️ We just popped a bottle of Down The Rabbit Hole, a skin contact Sauvignon Blanc from @cambridgeroad to help us through the afternoon. Sourced from some of the oldest & biodynamic grapes in NZ and made using traditional, minimal techniques, this wine just makes us wants to scream yes! Peach & honeysuckle layered over a wine of skinsy texture and length. So much yes.
We've been cooking up something special with our sister bar @bitterphew, trading some of our natural wines for beer from their HUGE 200+ bottle list. Thanks legends! Keep your eyes peeled for some fun wines popping up in Darlinghurst.
Spring is definitely on the way! ☀️ Our ploughman's plate - leg ham, @maffra_cheese cheddar, house pickles with @brickfieldsbakery sourdough.
You know what they say, a cheese board a day keeps the doctor away! Tonight's plate featuring @onkaparingacreamery Brie, @maffra_cheese Mature Cheddar & @udderdelightscheese Heritage Mawson Blue.

With one of the warmest winter weekends on record our front patio is beautiful this morning. Enjoy a coffee by @meccacoffee with our mushrooms & chevre on @noniesfood activated charcoal toast.
@somoswines is the product of two young winemakers looking to make creative wines from alternate varieties in classic regions. With a minimal intervention approach, Ben & Mauricio are producing unique wines in minuscule amounts that have us coming back again and again. And again. This '15 Cabernet Franc from McLaren Vale is all about freshness & vitality. Picked & pressed early, we're getting red pepper & fragrant herbs upfront, finishing cool with enough meat on the bones to satisfy. Interesting, juicy & highly drinkable, this ticks all the right boxes.
Cheese delivery day is the best day of the week 😀 5 new cheeses on the menu!
It's a dark beer kinda afternoon. We're drinking a Bridge Road Robust Porter. It's big on roast barley and chocolate malt, but at 5.2% it finishes smooth without being too heavy. Cheers @nakedned!
When your cheese is more mould than cheese! 😍 @taragorivercheese you know the way to our heart.
@sigurd_wines is the dream-come-reality of wine maker Daniel Graham. Drawing from his Norwegian family history, Dan started Sigurd with the intention of exploring a gentle & hands off approach to winemaking, producing experimental and animated wines. With fruit sourced in an equal split between Barossa and McLaren Vale, his red blend is a take on the classic GSM, adding in a portion of Nebbiolo to bring a touch of structure and texture. Expect red berried goodness with a tight, refreshing line of acid, all while those Nebbiolo tannins cut through. Juicy, bouncy, smashable wine.
