The Thirsty Travellers’ favourite spot to spend a Sunday evening is Four Pines Public House in Newport, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
We love settling into a timber booth and tucking into the bar’s Sunday roast. There are usually two different roasts on offer, which come with all the trimmings – at $22 – and we invariably grab one of each, so we can sample both.
(Although, we have been contemplating sharing one on our next visit as they’re quite substantial, much like our bellies are becoming!)
The chef is a wizard at making the crispiest pork crackling and perfect yorkshire pudding.
Public House specialises in barrel-aged beers, but it also has around 12 regular varieties on tap.
However, we usually kick off with a pint of Brookvale Union Ginger Beer, which has a delicious fresh ginger root aroma. The taste is gingery and sweet, but the spiciness cleans the finish. Then we move on to a round of wines by the glass to go with our roast dinner.
Public House has a lovely, relaxed vibe – it’s filled with everyone from families to Millenials playing board games to groups of blokes watching footy matches on the TV.
If you look closely at the pic above, you’ll spot a beardless DJ enjoying a roast at Public House back in 2018! The things you stumble across on Trip Advisor …
Public House is part of the Four Pines brewing group, which was born just over a decade ago in Manly. Aside from the original brewpub, there’s an atmospheric Truck Bar in Brookvale that The Thirsty Travellers thoroughly recommends, plus bars in Coolangatta, Charlestown, Torquay, Brisbane and Surry Hills.
