Shorty's, a lunch review

Shorty’s is a thing I had not realised Civic was missing until Barcham and I went there for lunch today.

A nice little gastropub in Civic.

Occupying roughly the space that used to be Milk And Honey one enters from a door opposite Essen.

The decor is nice and wooden with some tasteful murals.

You sit where you like and order at the bar.

The menu is chock full of things I want to eat.

Today I went for the duck prosciutto salad ($19) and Barcham had a bowl of crispy pork knuckle flesh ($14).

And, well conversation died as we hoed into them.

Drinks was tap beer, Squires and the like available.

I’ll be going back to try the rest of the unusual but highly tempting combinations on the menu. (sticky lamb ribs and kimchi anyone?)

But basically it’s a good spot to have a drink, a chat, and a bite to eat with no mess and no fuss.

I really like it and you should check it out.

The gentrification of the lunch reviews? Well up from the old ten smackeroonis … : )

And there was I, assuming the red stuff was cabbage.

Shorty’s sounds even more stable-boy than Duxton…

They used to call pubs The George or The King’s Arms. Now it’s The Lopsided Apprentice’s Broom.

Must check out the vege…oh shut up.

What happened to Milk and Honey? That place was always packed when I walked past.
