As dual citizenship speculation swirls through Canberra, former Prime Minister Bob Hawke has assured a Sydney pub he's "ridgy-didge".

Sitting at a bar in Sydney's eastern suburbs on his 88th birthday, Mr Hawke on Thursday told reporters he was "coming good" after a spell in hospital some weeks ago.

Mr Hawke wouldn't be drawn on the current citizenship scandal rocking federal parliament, but assured the pub there was no such confusion with his eligibility.

"I'm ridgy-didge," he laughed after unveiling a wax sculpture of himself holding a can of Hawke's Lager.

Mr Hawke's proceeds from the beer go towards Landcare, the rural program he elevated from a grass-roots community program to a national movement as prime minister in 1989.
