Welcome


Welcome to Dead Ringer

We are a neighbourhood restaurant & bar in Sydney's Surry Hills, dedicated to Australian produce, wine, beer & cocktails.

We are located in a heritage townhouse just off Taylor Square at the axis of Paddington, Darlinghurst and Surry Hills with comfortable counter-top dining, a garden terrace and an intimate dining room, also available for private hire.

We are thrilled to have one of Australias most exciting young chefs, Tristan Rosier (previously Est. / Farmhouse) heading up our kitchen. Together our goal is to champion the exceptional ingredients and producers of this great continent through a changeable menu of small and large sharing plates.

Our kitchen stays open throughout the day and late into every evening.

This is our second venue, following award winning bar Bulletin Place combining world class cocktails with a lean towards fortified wines and vermouths and a short sharp wine list exclusively featuring Australians and NZ wines and focusing on smaller producers.

Drinks


We made our names in the world of cocktails, so naturally they are a big part of Dead Ringer.

Focussing on fortified wines and vermouths to create drier drinks to go really well with a meal, we serve our own house aperitif & digestif.

We keep a concise list of the very best of Australasian wines, opening 8 wines daily to serve by the glass.

Our trim beer list showcases the best of local and regional smaller brewers. We rotate this constantly, only ranging a single beer in each style.

Wine

our approach to selecting wine is straightforward;
“is it delicious?!

We exclusively stock Australasian wines & support smaller producers as much as we can. By sourcing locally we’re able to reduce our footprint on the environment in terms of transportation whilst supporting local growers & winemakers.

We select & price wines for everyday drinking & aim to describe them with minimal “wine-babble”.
