Sydney pub The Redfern will open to the public again this Friday under W. Short Hospitality.

The pub has been in operation for over 100 years and has now been fully restored by the group over a number of phases.

“To be able to restore a piece of local history in this neighbourhood that we love is really special,” says W. Short Hospitality CEO Martin Short.

“In the late 1800s, this building began as a small one-level corner pub known as the Royal Albert Hotel.

“By the early 1900s, it had been renamed The Court House Hotel and expanded up to a second level with the same façade structure we’ve restored today.”

The venue is split into the Public Bar on the ground floor and an upstairs cocktail bar dubbed Misfits, which launched in 2017.

The food at The Redfern offering covers all the pub classics from burgers to pasta options, schnitzel, parmi and scotch fillet plus a weekly chef’s secret pasta and pie by the slice.

W. Short has a total of 10 pubs in operation including neighbouring venue The Tudor; The Royal Leichardt as well as The Glenmore and The Australian Heritage Hotel in The Rocks.

The Redfern is open seven days from 10am and Misfits is open Tuesday to Saturday from 4pm until midnight.
