Newport Arms Hotel: Bistro Food with Water Views

If you’re looking to impress a visitor to Sydney and show them icons beyond the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, take a drive to the north side. The Newport Arms hotel is a prime spot to enjoy a causal meal by the water in a location that would make Sydneysiders fall in love with their city all over again.

The pub was established in 1880 which makes it one of the city’s oldest and by virtue of its age, a historic site. It boasts a restaurant for more formal dining as well as a popular bistro with indoor seating and an outdoor area that is kid-friendly spot.

There is n outdoor theatre which is simply a large screen showing various sports.

The Bistro menu offers a choice of fish and chips, pizzas, salads, burgers, pastas and seafood. Main courses range from $19 for calamari and chips to $39 for a BBQ seafood platter for one. Kids meals cost $10 and were a decent size for the little ones.

Jugs of beer are a popular sight. So popular in fact, that they require you to pay a $10 deposit which is refunded on return. I can only gather that people were keeping them as souvenirs at one point.

The food is a little overpriced for what you get. But just other pubs with water views, you are paying for the location. And it is a delightful one.

With tranquil views, you can easily shut out the world by simply gazing at the serene waters,

or get back to nature and observe birds in the trees.

And when the sun goes down, there is nothing better than to sip a cocktail that reminds you of summer on a balmy night.

  2. Showed your article to boyfriend and convinced him to drive us there on Sunday, can’t wait, hope the weather will be good 🙂

    • Thanks! Hi Boyfriend! 🙂 I hope the weather holds out as it is lovely by the water. Worth getting there early to get a nice spot outside. Enjoy 🙂

  3. Nice blog but the chips look rather white and under cooked in the pic. Things may have improved since I was there but I stand by my review. It’s a shame but there is truth in the saying ‘first impressions last’.
