Description: Paymasters is a little haven, within walking distance of the hustle and bustle of the Newcastle CBD in NSW. Located on the Foreshore Park, overlooking the busy and picturesque Newcastle Harbour. Next door to Customs House, the heritage-listed building is on the site of the historic old Convict Lumber Yard. Paymasters Restaurant is one of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley's most delightful dining experiences. Paymasters is atmospheric, romantic and yet casual. Superb staff ensure a conscientious, personable and delightful dining experience. An essential first date restaurant, our pancakes are wonderful on a weekend morning. Come to Paymasters and experience Garlic Prawns like you will never taste again. For the visitor to Newcastle, Paymasters is a must experience, for the Hunter local - a weekly haunt. Paymasters can accommodate all manner of circumstances, so bring the kids or a large group. Bookings recommended. Paymasters is fully licenced, one of life's little pleasures. Worried about splitting the bill? We can run separate accounts so you don't need to make calculations later. For large parties, we ask for account names when you confirm your final numbers for your booking, smaller parties can arrange accounts when ordering. We are able to do individual food and beverage accounts for parties of any size.

“Perfect for Sunday brunch”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sunday brunch at Paymasters, opposite Newcastle foreshore, was definitely the right place to be this hot morning to catch a lovely sea breeze. There was something on the menu to suit most tastes (including gluten free) and the portions were generous.

“Wonderful birthday celebration lunch”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

It was my father's 80th birthday on the 9th December 2012 & the family wanted to have a special celebration lunch for him. We were lucky to have it at Paymasters. The staff provided excellent service and the food was exceptional. The function room was beautifully set up and the views from upstairs are amazing. In all a great experience and value for money. We would recommend this venue to anyone considering a large function or intimate meal.

“East end of Newcastle and good food”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This place is within easy walking distance to Newcastle Beach and the Honeysuckle precinct. We took the grandkids and they enjoyed their meals as much as we enjoyed ours - and the place is child friendly so we didn't have to keep a strick eye on the kids, which made their visit all the more relaxed. The restaurant is also within walking distance to the rail station. But while you are in the vacinity make sure you take a walk along the waterfront as well, its beautiful.

“Personal service pleases”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I dined there for our anniversary and it was very nice. I found the menu a little dated and the food slightly too salty for my liking but the service was great and the restaurant was nice and intimate for a romantic evening. The chef came out later to chat which I thought w lovely and the desert was delicious. We will return and I have heard brunch is delicious!
