The Hotel Delaney, or ‘The Del’ as it’s known by most locals, has been an iconic pub on Newcastle’s busiest street for decades. Last renovated in 2010, the owners have now brought some light back into its Cravings Restaurant, literally.

Anthony, Manager of the venue and whose parents own the pub explains, “It has been about bringing people back to the local pub. It’s been great for our back of house staff too, they get to create good, sexy food and present that”.
Local interior designer, Morag Argiris, has created a local theme with iconic Newcastle scenes hung up around the walls and optimizing the full restaurant area. The breath of fresh air that fills the space is also replicated throughout their menu.

Starting out as an apprentice chef more than 10 years a go, Tony came back to The Del last year as the head chef. “We wanted to be better than just a pub, we wanted to be a restaurant”.

 

 

The roasted pork belly and blue-eyed cod have been among their most popular items on the new menu so far along with “anything from the grill” including the lemon and herb marinated lamb cutlets.

For those looking for a quick, cheap feed don’t worry, The Del have kept their Monday and Tuesday Schnitzel nights and their Wednesday Steak nights. Or why not stop by for a $15 sub and a house wine for lunch?
The Del has also introduced ‘Bar Bites’, a limited bar menu for only $5 to enjoy with a sneaky after work bevvy.
With future plans to start matching wines with their food, The Del is sure to be back as a strong competitor on the Darby Street foodie scene.
