Forkhill House Irish Bistro

Bistro in Downtown & West End

Tucked into a West End heritage house, this inviting family-run bistro serves a hearty gastro-pub menu of contemporary Irish-inspired comfort dishes, including lamb-packed stews and juicy turkey cutlets. Book ahead for dinner or drop by for the daily happy hour (3pm to 6pm) when $5 beers (including Guinness and craft stout O'Hara's) plus house-made Scotch eggs are a must.

The L-shaped wooden bar is an ideal spot to while away a rainy afternoon (work your way through an impressive whiskey selection). Mouthwatering Sunday roasts (from 5pm) are a local legend.
