Freeway
Oddly situated, we think, but a big and clean venue with potential

I checked out the Freeway Hotel on Thursday, along with co-reviewer Lucas, and we must admit, we find it to be in an odd place. Well situated for the local office workers, warehouse staff, workies and passing trade from the nearby freeway after which it's named, this palce is large, reminiscent of some of the larger pubs out at the Northern Beaches, with pretty much everything you'd expect, including a drop-in cafe in the centre.

To the right, you'll find the sports bar, with TAB, pokies, two pool tables and tall stools, to the left is the piano bar (on automatic for our visit), with a more loungey feel, an outside area (smokers take note) and a classy-looking restaurant. There's an underground car-park too, for those of you with a designated driver, but don't try and park there unless you're a patron - you need your ticket validated at the bar.

Obviously some big investment has gone into the place, with plenty of plasma screens, stylish decor and plenty of space, though for our visit the place was a little empty. To be fair, though, it's pretty new and we'd expect things to pick up once the after-work crowd catch on, and maybe if there was more of an entertainment draw, then making the trip from the residential area to what is in essence and industrial zone would be more of an attractive prospect.

We also think things will change once the tunnel works are completed, but for now we'll put it down as a worthwhile after-work spot for a drop-in drink or two, and we'll certainly be heading back.

Oh, and a tip of the hat to the staff - service was excellent, thanks!
