4 out of 5 stars

A high tea class act

There are few places in Sydney that can match the Barracks for pomp and jaw-dropping views. We’re not talking a little corridor of harbour. The Gunners’ Barracks has a 180 degree, uninterrupted, waterfront panorama that stretches from the CBD all the way round to North Head, so be sure to request a spot on the big verandah to take full advantage of it. The crockery is Royal Albert bone china in a jaunty rose print with gold leaf trim, the charming waitstaff wear pressed white jackets and the tea selection goes beyond the standard black blends (though the Earl Grey is excellent) to include seasonal green teas and a delicate peach flavoured white tea. Gunners' Barracks can easily accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets (just let them know in advance), featuring an equally impressive selection of seasonal sandwiches and petit fours. Plus, the little ones will love their sugar-filled children's high tea. 

This venue welcomes American Express
