With the help of Sydney hospo legends Jaime Wirth and Mike Delaney.

The Norfolk's leafy beer garden is a familiar sight to many an inner city beer-drinking, $3 taco-loving pub-goer. But regulars to the Redfern pub might start to see some changes, with both the outdoor courtyard and interior set to undergo renovations over the next month.

The pub — along with The Forresters in Surry Hills and The Oxford Tavern in Petersham — was taken over by the Dixon Hospitality Group when they bought Jaime Wirth's Drink 'n' Dine group earlier in the year. Wirth will be returning to his old stomping ground to oversee the pub reno, along with business partner Mike Delaney. Fresh from resurrecting Club 77, the pair have come on board with the Dixon Group as consultants.

So what will the inspiration behind the renovations be? The team have described their plans as something close to "Benicio del Toro eating a Cajun gumbo whilst watching Miami Vice". We don't know exactly what that means, but somebody pass us a margarita and Cuban cigar, pronto.

The food and drinks menu will also undergo some changes, but we've been told not to worry – regulars will still be able to find plenty of pub staples on the menu, with new and improved substitutes for old favourites.

A favourite with locals for good reason – the Norfolk's beer selection is vast and the food menu is well priced. Loyal punters should keep their eyes peeled for a launch party, with the exact date TBA.
