The Queen Victoria Hotel and Razors Bistro recently celebrated their first anniversary together in the refurbished hotel premises at 167 Enmore Rd, Enmore — a five-minute stroll from Newtown Train Station.

In recalling the year which swept by us so quickly, we firstly wanted to thank all our regular patrons (many of whom are SSO readers) during our first year which has been tremendously successful. In particular, we would like to thank those patrons who have loyally followed Ray and Wayne from their former abode at Razors Edge to the Queen Victoria Hotel.

The hotel is delighted to be a part of SSO’s monthly food and beverage feature and would like to take the opportunity to advise SSO readers of some new offerings at the Hotel.

Our new bistro menu offers some classic pub bistro meals lovingly prepared by Ray with his neverending attention to detail and pride of presentation.

Regular specials now feature on the bistro menu, many of which you will be familiar with, particularly if you have dined from the à la carte menu previously. While the dedicated dining room is enjoying a summer sabbatical, Ray and Wayne are making sure that you don’t miss out on ordering your filet mignon and many other à la carte menu options which you can now order as and when they feature on the specials menu.

As always, bistro patrons continue to receive the same attentive yet unobtrusive service from Ray and Wayne.

While there are some new and exciting changes for Razors Bistro, one thing remains the same — whether you are dropping in for a quick meal or celebrating that special occasion, Razors Bistro will ensure a fabulous dining experience for you and your friends.

With the silly season fast approaching, next time you are thinking about where to have your birthday function or group get-together — in particular if you are trying to find a convenient space with good food for your end-of-year staff Christmas party — remember that the Queen Victoria Hotel caters for a wide variety of functions.

We can accommodate small groups of 20 up to large get-togethers of 200 people. For all function enquiries, please email Sue Strinconi at
