After hearing about their cute new menu for four legged friends, we had to go and sample the delicious people food at The Carrington, and hear more about their meals for dogs as well!
We sampled three dishes – the crispy pork belly with harissa glaze & fresh apple, the Carro cheeseburger with fries and burger sauce, and the 250 gram hanger steak with smashed spuds and salad. We tried the pork belly first, which was cut into delicious, bite sized pieces and had a nice tang to it. It was a great size for a small snack, and a nice way to start the meal.
We then tried the steak, which was a hearty portion, and very tasty. It was well seasoned and cooked nicely to the medium that we requested. The spuds were an interesting addition, but we really loved the side of fries with the burger, and would recommend going with the fries option! We also enjoyed the side salad, as it was great to have some greens to break up the heavy meal.
The Carrington regularly does a $12 burger special, but we opted for their house-famous burger instead. It came with a huge portion of fries, which was perfect for sharing, and they were so so good! The burger itself is definitely for those who prefer a well-done patty, and it’s a nice portion size for a smaller meal.
The interior of The Carrington is quite lovely, having an ‘open’ feel with plenty of natural lighting and space, and lots of greenery and plants adorning the eatery. Be sure to enter through the rear entrance for the bistro portion, although they have a great bar area at the front as well. The overall layout has been carefully designed to allow groups of various sizes, and we found the service to be quite friendly and fast!
More excitingly, The Carrington is also dog friendly – not only are they welcome, but the team at The Carrington have even designed some special items on the menu just for them, including steak and veggies, and beef tartare.
For a hearty meal in Surry Hills, make sure to consider The Carrington. We particularly enjoyed the steak, so make sure to try that, and we will be back with our puppies to try some of their adorable meals for dogs!
