Great spot to hang out with friends to watch shipping and have a few drinks and eats in the sunshine.

The Honeysuckle Hotel has a great location on the waterfront with indoor and outdoor seating options.
There's a decent variety of beers on tap and the staff are friendly and efficient. My companion and I shared a BBQ chicken pizza that was very tasty.
A nice place to be on a warm Friday afternoon, watching dinghy racing and the world going by...

I'm not usually in the business of criticising such a venue. However when the venue in question pretends to be something else, that's a different issue. Honeysuckle Hotel has everything to make a fun, exciting and memorable experience. Let's just get one thing clear, it's a Pub! Don't try rocking up at night with shorts on because this place has a "strict policy" against such attire, so I was refused entry. The food is what you would expect from a Pub, there are gaming and TAB facilities like a Pub and there are no rooms so I don't know where the 'Hotel' part comes from. Located in a big coastal city with some of the best beaches around, I suggest the Management rethink what this place is about and what their target clientele should be. Otherwise, Honeysuckle Hotel is worth a visit. Great views, very social.

A great option for some arvo beers, overlooking Newcastle harbour. Plenty of seating options, indoor and out. Upstairs mezzanine area away from the bar. Outdoor deck directly over the harbour. Lots of beers on tap and plenty of bottled options. Staff were friendly.

In all my time working in the hospitality industry I have not come across a more overpriced and poorly cooked steak. The grill chef that was working should not have been given such a responsibility. All steaks where medium well when we asked for rare, my girlfriend almost cut her mouth on a glass that she was given that had a huge chip on it. When we spoke to the supervisor / manager she seemed to be so uninterested in the fact that she almost had a WH&S issue on premises. I dont want anything for free I just want places like this to take more care in what they do, instead they dont care at all. My advise, you want a good steak cook it at home and check your glassware when the bartender gives it to you. DONT BOTHER with this place!
