Killara's mainstay pub on the Pacific Highway.
Sitting on the Pacific Highway, this Killara pub is kind of like a great grandparent — it has your undying respect, just because it's been around so for long. Beyond that respect, though, the Greengate has a whole lot on offer to enjoy, carving its name as one of the North Shore's favourite watering holes.
First cab off the rank, it's a really pretty looking pub. The old facade is gorgeous, and the fitout has the feeling of an old style pub that's been updated over time and kept impeccably clean. Which is exactly what has happened, I imagine. The menu at the Highway Bar sticks to the theme, updating a few pub classics like salads, burgers, and standard mains, like the chilli prawn linguine, of course.
The menu at the Portico Restaurant deftly handles the more upmarket of the menus, and adds a few contemporary twists to well-known dishes, like the slow cooked pork cheeks with edamame, Thai eggplant and sweet potato. There's also an ample selection of adult beverages throughout both bistros and bars, and the pubs welcomes your doggo to join you for your meal, as long as your best bud is kept on a leash.
