Bar Oz does not serve real ale, just in case you were in any doubt. As such you won't catch me nipping in there for a swift pint. However it does do good, reasonable priced food and offers plenty of sport watching opportunities if that takes your fancy. The Australian interior is obviously a bit OTT but it isn't done in a repulsive way. Bright but not garish.

Food was burgers (was many different toppings), bacon things and chicken wings etc. Vegetarians catered for (I had veggie burger with veggie chilli) and I seem to recall a number of other veggie dishes. We (Myself, Dan Smith and Darien Graham-Smith) all enjoyed our meals. They don't take Switch (as the barman pointed out there are plenty of cash points nearby).

Good for food and sport. (9.i.1998)

Colin writes: There is a real ale these days, but it's Courage Best. Lots of horrendously unfunny signs up, and also lots of distance signs to various places in Australia
which aren't consistent with one another. Not when they claim that Sydney's twice as far away as Canberra.

It used to be the Roebuck, which had a reputation for being rough and townie which was odd if you considered the percentage of the bar staff who were undergraduates. (18.viii.1998)
