A traditional boozer in Kemptown, Sidewinder serves a mean feast on a Sunday and offers a hella cosy interior to boot. Full to brim with all sorts of unusual oddities, your retreat from the wind and the rain could find you perched over an N64 controller, soaking up a lil retro console action in the games corner, with something tasty in hand, of course.
