The first time I came to the New Windsor was after a strenuous day of CD and book shopping in the city. I figured, what better to do after a hard day's spending than to grab a beer and watch the world go by while perusing one's purchases?
The pub is on a pretty busy corner at the meeting of Park and Castlereagh, so you see a fair cross-section of the city blowing past as you sit on the tall stools at the large windows, and if you get bored with that, well, there's a whole bunch of TV screens to watch. I spent on enjoyable afternoon trying to figure out how horse racing works here, and didn't learn a thing!
If pushing the feeder bar like a lab rat is your thing, there's a darkened pokie room downstairs, where the air of concentration is as rich and thick as anywhere I've seen, and for smacking balls around, the pool tables are upstairs. The middle level is preferred though.
Prices are Sydney average, and there is food available too. One of the better late afternoon pubs in the city, in my opinion. Of course on weeknights the suits flood in, so I usually flood out. It's not far to the next one though!
