What’s the point in having a dependable, temperate climate if you don’t take every opportunity for an al fresco drink you can? We assume this was the thinking behind the design of the Albion Hotel in Parramatta, because this place is mostly beer garden, which gets two thumbs up from us. They also have some of the friendliest staff in the city. On a Friday afternoon there’s no room to spare at the Albion, and there are two bars, which is handy for locking down rounds of Fat Yak pale ale or Coopers Green. If the budget is tight, head in on Wednesdays when a double cheeseburger and a beer will only cost you $22.
