The West Village
Just in time for those summertime Sunday sessions, The White Cockatoo in Petersham has re-launched as The West Village. Decked out with communal tables and a menu heaving with share plates makes this spot perfect for those breezy Sunday afternoons with your mates. Plus, with brews by Will & Co. coffee, there is a little something for everyone.
There'll be a modern Australian pub menu available created by Locky Paech & Chef Sam Thomson (ex Catalina) and includes small and large share plates that are perfect for groups. You can also rest easy in the knowledge that Thomson utilises NSW ethically-farmed meat and speciality produce from local organic markets as well as making his own pickles, relishes and sauces when he can. If you're after some classic pub dishes, fear not for you'll also find staples like fish and chips plus chicken schnitties on the bar menu.
