Things sure are looking up for Sydney's northern beaches these days, especially when it comes to wining and dining. Merivale opened its hugely popular venue, The Newport, and it also renovated and relaunched The Collaroy. Then, Mona Vale got a slice of the gastropub pie, with the Mona Vale Hotel reworked as a food and entertainment hot-spot Park House Food & Liquor.

The main attraction is Park House Food Merchants, a multi-faceted venue, complete with restaurant, cocktail lounge and all-weather courtyard. The menu draws inspiration from Southern California's food scene, for a vibrant, share-focused menu peppered with Mexican, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours.

On it, you'll find dishes like harissa spiced chicken with a buttermilk cos salad, five hour braised lamb shank with grilled brocollini, and a roasted salmon fillet with pistachio and tahini yoghurt. Meanwhile, the bar's slinging an eclectic, well-traveled wine list, alongside a solid range of craft beers and barrel-aged cocktails

There are weekly specials and events for big occasions at Park House, while every Friday and Saturday night there's acoustic music in the garden bar. There are plenty of event and private dining spaces here, with the sun room capable of fitting 80 for a cocktail party, while the garden bar can be booked out exclusively for groups up to 200. If you're looking for something intimate and private, the fireplace area can be booked out for meals for up to twenty.
