NSW: Woolwich Pier Hotel, Woolwich

I haven’t seen Miss Mumma in so long and when there’s an opportunity to see her, you jump on it. Miss Mumma suggested Woolwich Pier Hotel. We got there on a Tuesday night and it was jam packed. The atmosphere was pumping, lively and very pub-y. Miss Mumma got the fried chicken burger but she found it to be quite dry and was average. The chippies were cold and not crunchy at all and she was quite disappointed with the dish.

We walked in and it was super busy but there were a few tables free and we snagged one to ourselves. I got the medium pho topped with rare beef. Now, the service was so efficient that within 5 minutes, our food came out all steamy and ready to be eaten.

It was quite busy at 8AM but I guess people were dropping by to get caffeinated like I was. It was very cosy inside and I the staff made sure I was looked after.
