Accommodation NSW welcomes Swanson Hotel, in Erskineville for all your restaurant and entertainment needs, enquire online today.
Overlooking the leafy Harry Noble Park the new Swanson Hotel is a welcome addition to the burgeoning dining scene in the inner city and the colourful village atmosphere of Erskineville.
Formerly the Kurrajong Hotel, this old favourite has been taken over and undergone an extensive refurbishment by the Balmain Pub Group, known for the popular Riverview Hotel in Birchgrove and the Balmain Hotel in Balmain.
Under the guidance of former AHA chef of the year Brad Sloane, the Swanson Hotel has opened up level 1 for the first time with an 80 seat restaurant which includes a sleek new cocktail bar focusing on fresh, delicious cocktails, a private dining room and simple clean food with a gastro pub influence.
The ground floor features more casual style booth seating and offers simple delicious bar fare such as a Wagyu Burger, a Crispy Duck, Orange, Quinoa, Treviso & Pinenut Salad and Chicken Schnitzel’s. Pizzas are also made in house including gluten free pizzas, which are all on offer both day and night, and of course; we screen all the important games of the season, no matter your code.

The roast dinner is great but don't expect to be full. I had approximately 10 peas, a tiny piece of carrot and one potato. The meat was tender and delicious but I want to be bursting at the seams for $25, not go away still hungry.
A sophisticated dining area hidden away above a neighbourhood hotel pub, what an unexpected gem. The Swanson hotel truly is a proper dining experience where food is far from the usual pub favorites. The 3 course meal offered was beautifully and balanced in flavour. From mains like Lamb shank pie and King fish. Prices and service are about average.
Had dinner there for my wife's birthday last night and honestly can't fault it. If I wanted to nitpick they were a little slow getting the first round of drinks out, but that was about the worst of it. The restaurant was busy but the waitstaff were attentive and kept us updated as to how long our food was going to be, although to be fair I don't think we waited all that long. Between our group we sampled most of the menu and enjoyed everything. The 12 Hour Lamb Shoulder is magnificent and the Pork Cider pie- ordered on advice from our waiter- was a great pick too. The Swanson does a great job of delivering high end food in a very relaxed atmosphere, we'll definitely be back.
