Our new feature wines come to us courtesy of Bay of Stones. These wines aren’t available for retail sale, so you can only try them in a restaurant, club … or with us!
The Sauvignon Blanc has attractive tropical fruit notes that are the highlight of the wine, and a subtle background of fresh grapefruit and lemongrass adds further interest on the bouquet. Translation: it’s light and fruity.
The Shiraz has a palate that is medium bodied in structure, with ripe plum fruit flavours, good mid-palate fruit sweetness and right yet soft velvety Shiraz tannins through to the finish. In English: it’s a tasty drop that’s not as heavy as other Shiraz.
These wines are $7 by the glass and $27 by the bottle.
HIVE Village Project is the initiative of a Ryde mum who is determined to save lives and build safer communities for domestic violence survivors and their children.
Mel has committed herself to designing a community for women and children to be housed in that is safe, affordable, sustainable and eco friendly. She has set up a Gofundme page for this initiative. You can support Mel’s project by going to:
What’s happening at night in Ryde? What do you do now and what would you like to see happen?
Ryde Council is conducting a study to find out how our town centres can be more activated, vibrant and accessible at night. The study will help Council understand what’s currently happening at night in Ryde so they can identify gaps and better address the needs of the community, amongst other things.
This means they want to hear from you, Ryde locals (including West Ryde). www.ryde.nsw.gov.au/RydeAfter5
There’s also an Instagram competition to win one of five $100 Event Cinema Gold Movie Passes. Share a photo of your favourite places to go and things to do in Ryde at night using #RydeAfter5 on Instagram. Competition closes 22 August 2016.
We’ve added some special items just for lunch, all $14 each:

Prosciutto melt – roast cherry tomatoes & prosciutto with melted gruyere cheese on sourdough
Wild mushroom grill – medley of sauteed mushrooms on toasted sourdough with cream cheese, rocket and pinenuts.

Our craft beers have been proving popular, so we’ve added Akasha, brewed close by in Five Dock.
We’re also now offering Newtowner from the crowd favourite Young Henrys.
If you’re thinking of escaping the cold this winter, there are few places cosier than next to our open log fire. There are couches and tables close by, so you can curl up with a book, or your nearest and dearest, or pick a warm spot to watch the footy.
We regularly host functions and events in our function room space and also in the beer garden (and sometimes both – depending on the size of the function!). If you’re organising a function for work, family or friends, you can reserve the function room at no extra charge. We also have a function menu.
For function enquiries, please call us on 9874 1488.
Our ever-popular Tuesday Night Trivia will return on 2 February.
It starts at 7.30 p.m. but we advise arriving a bit earlier to ensure you get a table – or maybe just to do some last-minute cramming on the names of the rivers in South Australia, our past prime ministers, who won the NRL grand final in 1996 …
