The Dolphin Hotel on Crown Street in Surry Hills recently got a makeover, and went from a dark corner pub to a white-walled bistro with a dining room and wine bar down one side. It’s worth a look just for the space itself, but come for dinner and stay late for a few drinks. It’s retained its traditional pub setup, so you’ll get meat plates and rosé in the wine bar, crab spaghetti and pork belly in the bistro, and pizzas, burgers, and steaks in the public bar up front. Drink local beer on tap, or wine from a large list of over 150 bottles and 35 by the glass.
