Tilly May’s, Surry Hills old favourite
Since 2017, the Trinity has been overhauled into an exciting, new-look-venue for locals to enjoy. According to new owners, brother-sister team Anna and Peter Calligeros, the aim in redeveloping the Trinity was to create an environment that not only drew you in, but kept your custom and invited you back, no matter what you originally came there for.
“We wanted a pub built for locals to enjoy, we didn’t want a venue where people visit once, see how it is and never come back. We didn’t build a pub to be judged, we built a pub to be enjoyed”, says Peter Calligeros.
If you haven’t made your way to the Crown Street venue lately, we suggest checking it out.
Climb the stairs and be warmly welcomed by the good times vibes of Tilly May’s – the worldly older sister of the Trinity, where the drinks flow and the good times roll. Inspired by the lively history of Surry Hills’ colourful past and the strong women that once called it home. Bought to life by designers Alexander & Co. the décor of Tilly May’s takes the visitor back in time. The rooms exhibit architecture dripping with 18th century grandeur, where vaulting ceilings and old-world charm are complimented by warmly lit interiors, exposed sandstone, dark wood features & bespoke vintage details throughout.
Perhaps the most inventive of the new additions to the space is that of the retractable roof, which allows for swathes of natural light and fresh air to flood the already bright and airy rooms.
Other notable additions include the exceptional open rotisserie that’s now known for filling the space with the delicious wafts of its succulent rotating meats. Locals can enjoy the fruit of its spoils every Sunday with the Trinity’s $19 Roast with all the delicious trimmings.
Downstairs has stayed in keeping with its Irish roots with the twist of contemporary Boston sports bar feel. It’s the place where locals can count friendly staff, cold beers, classic pub meals and every key match, game and bout being shown live & loud on the big screens. With the light rail soon to open, the venue is sure to be a key stop on your way to and from the SCG.
