Sydney Park Hotel

A local heritage pub slinging cold beers and classic counter meals.

Situated at the south end of King Street in Newtown, this heritage-listed watering hole has long been a favourite spot for locals. Revamped by the Reilly Group (the team behind Marrickville's The Henson) in mid-2016, this working-class boozer has maintained its old-school charm, with a few smart touches to keep things relevant. The food is straightforward pub grub but done properly. And the chicken burger ($19) here is worth a visit alone. It features fried chicken, iceberg lettuce and chipotle mayo, with the option of adding streaky bacon for $3 (yes, please). Drop in on a Monday for the $20 burger and beer deal, plus pints at schooner prices.
