ミーン・フィドラー・タヴァーンMean Fiddler Tavern

今シドニーで一番人気のナイトスポットは、中心部から1時間ほどもかかるRouse Hillの奥地にたたずむ石作りのパブだ。最近、オーストラリア・ホテル協会からShift gently suggested I include news aside from music this month, which at first I found puzzling – I hadn’t realised there was anything else of any importance.‘People’s Choice’ and ‘Best Bar Presentation and Serviceで賞を受賞し1826 Royal Oak Inn の跡地に1996年の末にオープンした、他でもない Mean Fiddler Tavern がそれだ。

アイルランドを訪れる幸運は今だ訪れておらず、アイリッシュ・パブに評価を下すという立場ではないのだが、かれらのギネスの素晴しさに疑問の余地はないということは確信できる。
Fiddlerはまたアイルランドとオーストラリアの不思議な文化的融合を促していて、それはかつて罪人たちによって、看守の住居として建てられ、著名なアイルランドの建築家によって改装され家具もほとんどすべてオーストラリアとアイルランド製のアンティークのこの建造物からも知ることができるだろう。
Ulster、Munster、Leinster、 Connaughtというアイルランドの4つの地域がゲール語で紋章に象徴されている(らしい、ゲール語は学校では最悪だった..)。
かなり混みあうこのパブだが、親しみやすい雰囲気もあって魅力的だ。
金曜の夜はここで、Harpを飲んで、おしゃべりしながら楽しむとしよう。

After some long hours of soul searching, however, I realised that there was indeed another core aspect of our human condition worthy of global attention: namely that sweet intoxicating beverage known as beer.

Surprisingly, Sydney’s recently voted No.1 Pub is a stone building hidden away at Rouse Hill, a good hour or so away from the city center. Recently collecting the Australian Hotel Association (AHA) awards for ‘People’s Choice’ and ‘Best Bar Presentation and Service’, its none other than the Mean Fiddler Tavern, opened late 1996 at the site of the 1826 Royal Oak Inn.

Having never had the good fortune to visit Ireland, I guess I’m in no position to rate the establishment as an Irish pub – I can confirm, however, they serve a mean pint of guiness – right down to the shamrock artistically in the head. The Fiddler represents a strange blend of Irish and Australian culture, which is reflected in the building itself – originally designed and built by convicts as a coach-house, with newer extensions designed by award-winning Irish architects and furnished by antiques from all around Australia and Ireland (and one or two from Paris, for some reason). The four provinces of Ireland – Ulster, Munster, Leinster & Connaught are represented in Gaelic crests, or so I’m told – Gaelic was never one of my strong points at school…

Although it can get crowded, the Mean Fiddler definitely has one of the friendliest vibes around, without being too sleazy – see you friday and we can chat at greater length over a few pints of Harp.
