Relax and unwind at The Garden Tap
Live music at The Garden Tap every Sunday afternoon
The Garden Tap is a little gem hidden away in leafy North Turramurra on Sydney's North Shore. Combining the charm and character of a traditional English pub with a relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere, The Garden Tap is the perfect place to spend a long lunch or a lazy Sunday afternoon.
The Garden Tap offers both indoor and outdoor seating, offering the ideal setting in all kinds of weather. You can grab a table out the front and watch people wander by, or take a seat inside the pub where you can also watch the sports event of the day on one of the TV screens.
Sunday afternoon at The Garden Tap
The Garden Tap serves up great finger food, light dishes to share, as well as small and full meals. The menu has a good selection of burgers ranging from the classic wagyu beef burger, deluxe cheeseburger or smokey pulled pork to chicken, vegetarian and brekky burgers.
If you're after something to share, try the chorizo and cheese balls, buffalo chicken wings or crispy fried calamari. There's also a Kids Menu with crumbed chicken breast, fish and chips and a reliable favourite - spaghetti! Check out the full menu on The Garden Tap website.
If you have a sweet tooth, you won't be disappointed by The Garden Tap's dessert menu. The souffle is light and fluffy and perfectly cooked. Chocolate lovers will love the dark chocolate ganache, and there's also a selection of sorbets and a creme brulee.
On Sundays The Garden Tap offers a traditional Sunday Roast and there's also live music every Sunday afternoon, adding to the relaxed atmosphere with a regular rotation of local bands.
If you're after something a bit more formal, pop into The Cooks Garden just next door for a superb three course meal - but make sure you call ahead for a booking, the food is so good that the dining room is often full (use their online booking form). They are fully licensed with a great range of wines to choose from, and the waitstaff can help select the perfect bottle to go with your meal.
The Cooks Garden also has an alfresco dining courtyard, and is a lovely venue for a small private party such as wedding receptions and birthday celebrations.
