Having undergone a 12-month revamp, Ambarvale's local pub has finally reopened. The Ambarvale Hotel features your standard pub attributes — including a sports bar, VIP lounge and a bistro — but now it's also home to a lush garden atrium and its own brewery.

An anomaly in Sydney's southwest, the super pub follows a family-friendly, all-encompassing concept similar to Merivale's The Newport, but with the added bonus of its own on-site microbrewery.

Dubbed Ambarvale Brewing Co, it's expected to produce 68,000 litres of beer each year, with brews of every flavour profile — from pale ales to chocolate stouts, as well as limited release sours.

If you're after a feed, the industrial Brewery Bar and Bistro serves up classic pub fare, burgers, chorizo and manchego doughnuts, pizzas from the central woodfire oven and its signature rotisserie chicken. Plus, there's a huge selection of meat cuts, including flat iron steak, wagyu rump, sirloin and an epic 1.6-kilogram tomahawk.

On the other end of the spectrum — and other side of the pub — the garden-style atrium, fittingly called The Greenhouse, offers more of a casual setting, packed with potted and hanging plants, copper pendants and a tiled mosaic floor. For the no-frills crowd, there's the sports bar and for the families there's an impressive play area. It's a pub for all walks of life.

Find The Ambarvale Hotel at 57 Woodhouse Drive, Ambarvale. It's open Monday through Saturday from 10–2am and from 10-12am on Sundays.
