WATERSIDE HIDEAWAY WELCOMES ALL SYDNEYSIDERS FOR SUMMER
The licensed hotel and restaurant outlet, Newport Arms, overlooking Sydney’s Pittwater is inviting all Sydneysiders to come and enjoy a true taste of Summer dining this season in one of their 3 food outlets; The Terrace on Pittwater Restaurant,’ the grill’ or alternatively their famous Garden Bistro & Bar.
Expansive views of Pittwater offered by The Arms has made the Northern Beaches Newport Arms beer garden and bistro escape one of Sydney’s family and social visitor icons, frequently making the property’s spacious precincts a special retreat after a day on The Northern Beaches.
Following major renovations last year, including the upgrading of its original upstairs lounge and bar areas, the property emerges as an expanded multi-layered bar, restaurant, and family-oriented hideaway, whether local or from interstate as well as extending a welcome for international guests also.
Within a 40 minutes’ drive from the Sydney CBD the overall Newport Arms site also offers sweeping views of Bayview, Church Point, Scotland Island and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
review by: Newport Arms
Approaching the Newport arms down the hill after a fairly rapid mountain bike run out from Sydney, I wasn't immedately struck with the importance of the pub I was about to visit. From the road it looks unprepossessing, a bit like a small RSL. Of course, the reason for this is that the most part of the pub is a level down from what you see from the road.
Dismounting my bike and wheeling in through an entrance to the garden, I could immediately see why so many of my friends have raved about this place. Situated right on the edge of Pittwater with a stunning outlook, this huge garden is perfect for family groups and sun lovers, and a constant stream of them were arriving for lunch as I headed to the bar.
A large bistro area graces the downstairs bar, serving plenty of seafood, steaks, burgers and even kids meals - yup, it'as almost designed to be a family pub, this one - it's even got kiddies play areas scattered around.
There really is everything you need here, and for Sydneysiders it's got to be worth travelling out for. If you're a local, you probably already know about it! Aim to arrive just before the lunchtime rush if you're after food.
Later in the evenings the Sunset bar kicks off with DJs and attracts the younger set, with free entry and a shuttle bus service. One of these days we'll be checking this out for you, but for now, we unhesitatingly recommend a daytime visit - a must for anyone.
