A longstanding Parramatta watering hole with an in-house Thai restaurant.
The Woolpack Hotel, founded way back in 1796, is a stalwart pub in the Parramatta area — though it's been given an impressive facelift. Its many spaces make it ideal for a wide range of tastes. The main bar offers lounges and ottomans alongside a detailed wine list and cocktail menu.
If you're looking for a rowdy time instead, head over to the sports bar. It boasts both indoor and outdoor plasma TVs, pool tables and a courtyard to boot. And the venue isn't offering up your standard pub food either. Instead, expect Thai favourites from in-house restaurant M&J to grace your plate. Plus, the bar is open until 4am on Saturdays and is a close walk both from Bankwest Stadium and to the train station.
