We just had a Christmas get-together with friends at the Sunnyside Tavern and were impressed with the food and the service. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy, it was no problem when our booking for 4 people suddenly changed to 6 when 2 extra friends arrived unexpectedly - another small... read more

Having been to the Sunnyside for dinner with my wife & mother in law I am so incredibly impressed with every aspect of the experience. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The service that we received in the bistro area was of the highest quality I have seen in a decade since I've lived in Newcastle. I used... More

Met with friends at the Sunnyside Hotel for dinner. It is a line up and pay for your meal on ordering which worked well for our group. All entrees and then the meals for our table were delivered about the same time which was really good. Service was good and all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Meals... More

This place looks like it has been recently renovated and they have done a good job. We sort this place out as the menu looked good and affordable however we were worried as that can mean bad food. We were really happy with the result. The staff were nice even though they were busy. The pulled pork roll and bread... More

Went to the Sunnyside Tavern for lunch today as we had been about 12 months ago and had been impressed with the food. What a disappointment! I ordered the Special $28 baked fish with beetroot and goat's cheese. What came out was a piece of fish not much larger than a fish cocktail at my local fish and chip shop.... More

Lunched with family of 6 including 1 toddler. Excellent service - first time ordering off child menu - this was served within 5 minutes and child was satisfied before other meals served. Food was of high quality and plenty of it given the pub venue. The staff, including the bar staff could not have been more helpful and considerate.

I have eaten here a number of times, situated in Georgetown in Newcastle Australia. Great food, and plenty of it at a very reasonable price. Full bar facilities, eftpos machine, bathrooms, indoor and outdoor dining available...can be paid in cash or credit/debit card. Definitely a favourite, will keep going back for more.

Went there for a family occasion and had a great night. The food was excellent and well priced and the atmosphere was great. It was trivia night and it added to the great night. So good was it that we won and had to come back the next week to spend our voucher. Would recommend

The service is this establishment is excellent. Food was bought out quickly, staff were very polite. The place was so busy, yet a staff member still came over to check if we were happy with everything.

Today we celebrated dad's 90th Birthday at our favourite local pub. We had 22 family members (including 2 wheelchairs and 2 highchairs) and all enjoyed the food and relaxed environment. The staff were extremely accommodating and made the day a fantastic celebration for all the family. Thankyou!
