The best pubs in Newtown
The Bank has always been a late night stalwart, but recent additions of a craft beer bar in the heart of the hotel, a fun refurb of the lower courtyard and a small bar upstairs means you can choose to linger in the area that suits your drinking mood best. Newtown.
The Carlisle Castle is the very definition of an old faithful pub. Nothing much changes here and nothing needs to. They have 18 beer taps with a handful of double-ups and a single, alternating tap for special brews, one-offs and limited edition beers. Newtown.
They’re a pretty relaxed bunch in Newtown, but if anyone ever tried to refurbish the Courthouse Hotel we suspect there’d be rioting in the streets. This old pub is like a well worn jumper – warm, comfortable, and big enough to fit anyone and everyone. And like any cherished piece of outerwear, it may be a little scuffed and faded, but that’s what happens when you love something with force. Newtown.

Charge your glasses, friends, and join us in a toast to Sydney’s pubs. To the fusty watering holes that champion the old ways: they’ve still got a pie warmer behind the counter, the footy is on the TV and their Reschs is cold and clean. And to the young guns swinging open the saloon doors to local breweries fermenting up a flavour storm in all corners of the city. This guide is where we get to sing the praises of the best in the business.
