Life with kids in Sydney City
So, I usually add really kid friendly places to eat out to our website. This time I'm sharing a place that you wouldn't necessarily think of as kid friendly but we love it! Our boy is 13 months and we have been so many times and even ordered take out from there when our eating out plan has gone to pot.
The Woolpack is a really casual, relaxed environment and we’ve found it very easy to go there with bub. I actually came across it when my friend from mothers group suggested it for lunch. It works really well if you don't need to buy a kids dinner as they don't have a kids menu. I'm still getting away with bringing our own food for our wee man and letting him have a little of ours.
They have 1 highchair and we love settling in the back of the pub where there's 2 big tables, a bench seat and some comfy armchairs by the fireplace. It's cosy little nook, complete with its own loan library, away from the main eating and drinking area.
They have also added tonka trucks and connect four to the area around the fireplace to entertain the kids.
The main reason we keep going back is the burgers, specifically the Pork Burger. If you've read any of my previous reviews you'll notice I order pulled pork burgers a lot! Unfortunately it means i’m often disappointed as nothing ever comes close to The Pork Burger at The Woolpack. The Pork burger is made up of crispy pork belly, pancetta, dijon, mayo, apple compote and rocket ($17) and comes with wedges, chips or a salad. It’s not shredded pork, it’s actual slices of pork belly as well as some magical ingredients. I
’ve never ordered anything else here but my hubby has had the Beef Burger and The Crispy Chicken Snitty Burger and has loved everything he’s tried. If it wasn't the burgers, I would be raving about the wedges which are amazing and I can't put my finger on why that is. We've even gotten take away after a planned trip was cancelled due to a crazy, teething toddler and the food was just as good.
Redfern Park is 2 mins away so we plan it so our little man can have a play afterwards.
There is usually street parking on Chalmers Street.
