Sydney Morning Herald article on "my local"

"Is anything better than a cold beer coupled with a good steak? Well, yes, actually - when that steak carries a $5 price tag.

The price of petrol, ice-creams and houses may have soared in Sydney over the past decade but we can still dine cheaply at most local watering holes.

Steak-lovers don't have to go far to find a good pub offering a full meat dinner for just $5 (with drink purchase).

And most offer a choice, so those not inclined to pump up their iron levels don't have to miss out on the bargain meals.

The Robin Hood Hotel at Waverley is one such place. With a massive range of foods on its $5 menu, it's cheaper to eat and drink there than DIY at home.

As well as the obligatory steak (a 250-gram rump steak with your choice of chips or mash, plus 50 cents for sauce), there is a chicken breast schnitzel, char-grilled pork spare ribs, soup of the day, lightly battered fish and chips, bangers and mash, spaghetti bolognaise, steamed vegies, mixed garden salad, rocket and parmesan salad or a bowl of chips. Quite a find for any bargain hunter.

It's also an unpretentious, chilled out, relaxed pub in the normally high-brow eastern suburbs. When we visited on a Tuesday night, the mixed crowd was dominated by a mostly young, casual set, with almost all taking advantage of the bargain food. Retro music from the 1980s and '90s pumped through the venue but at a level low enough so you could still keep up a conversation.

It's all a good recipe for a good night out."
