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.

Fully enjoyed the whole experience, service was excellent & the food was superb. Great setting in a great location, would definitely return. We arrived early after making a later booking & were still accommodated & welcomed.

Right in the heart of the city is this well preserved icon of a past era. Paymasters Cafe is a cute 2 storey cottage with extensive veiws over foreshore park and the harbour beyond. Staff are professional and the menu is diverse and interesting. a great treatr for the discerning diner

“Fantastic celebration and perfect for kids and Coeliacs”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I recently celebrated my 40th birthday at Paymasters and had a wonderful night with my family and friends. It was really enjoyable for all, including my coeliac daughter, whom they made a special effort for. It was a night I will never forget.

really lovely food in a gorgeous, friendly setting. Food was a little pricey but was worth the effort. A little more formal for a special occasion
