Has to be the Newport Arms Hotel, with the views over Pittwater to Bayview and Mona Vale
I have two favourites. I love Newport Arms in Sydney’s North overlooking the water. It just can’t be beaten for a family friendly spot while away a few hours with good pub food and a children’s play area.
Oatley Hotel in Sydney’s South is another favourite offering great pizza and relaxing music out the back in their recently renovated beer garden area. They also welcome families.
