This old pub has reinvented itself. It has lots of shade covered tables overlooking Watsons Bay and the city of Sydney. It serves casual meals, ice creams, cocktails and cold beers. Prices are reasonable

TLC (The Lunch Club) ate here last Friday. All 15 of us enjoyed the food. The oysters were the best I have had. Although the place was heavily booked the staff were very attentive and friendly.More

Our daughter took us for breakfast on a recent visit to Sydney. The view is amazing as is the breakfst we had. The menu was comprehensive and the service was efficient. Walking around Watsons Bay after on a beautiful sunny day was very relaxing.More

It has been years since we have been in Sydney, but pubs, and restaurants pretty much work as they always have. That isn’t exactly true of the Beach Club at Watsons Bay. They can’t seem to decide if they are a pub or restaurant, and...More

You can sit or stand there, virtually on the beach, and have a drink with your friends. The service is brisk. It's generally crowded. Plenty of ozone. What more do you want?

Flash back 30 years to uni days and this was a cool local beer garden pub. Now it's gentrified and doesn't have to try too hard. They seriously "ran out of prawns" !!! Then charged a fortune for a scrawny seafood platter with no prawns.....More

The best thing this venue has going for it is it's location. No doubt it is an amazing location, however my experience yesterday was less than spectacular. Meal order didn't go through so half of our party had finished their lunch by the time we...More
