A few of us had lunch here recently, having been a few times previously. The inside of the pub is as awful as ever but at least they have done up the ladies' loos. Their service is cheerful even as they tell you the bad news about their bottled wine prices and availability - no bottled chardonnay at all and... More

We just popped into the Hotel as I felt like some fries and a cool drink. The fries were great and for some reason our soft drink was free. As the Courthouse is close to home we will be back.

A busy, lively & crowded venue! We pre-booked for our group of ten. Service was a bit slow as we visited on a very crowded summery evening and the place was packed!!! The food was great and a good selection of beers & wines on offer. Value for money! Will definitely be going again.

We've been to the Courty a few times before and just love the joint! The staff are always friendly, happy to have a yarn and a joke or two. The beer garden is awesome but on the weekend, get there early as it fills up really quickly. The food is really beautiful too. I've had the nachos, steak and pretty... More

Been here a couple times, has a really good outside courtyard area. Drinks are average and what you'd find anywhere but good

A group of eight arrived for dinner. With no reservation expecting an out-of-the-way table, but we were very pleasantly surprised to be shown to a central table in the beer garden, close to the bar where meals were ordered. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The menu is better than pub grub and very well priced. A very enjoyable... More

Had a great Sunday session on a brilliant late winter afternoon at the Courthouse Hotel in Newtown. Great friendly atmosphere and beautiful people. Food was simple as the bistro is being renovated. Nice pulled pork roll and a beef nachos were good with the Young Henry's Newtowner beer on draft.

Used to be a smokers haven but now with smart segregation and space for everyone it's Te only truly inclusive inner-west Sydney pub where anyone can enjoy a drink in their sunny and atmospheric courtyard
