The Bennett Hotel

In the back streets of Newcastle suburb Hamilton, this neighbourhood pub is reimagined with a relaxed, elegant style. Settle in under a sun umbrella in the pub’s 120-seat beer garden and enjoy a menu of pub favourites or refined dishes like braised lamb shoulder or wild mushroom pappardelle. Originally built in 1865, this neighbourhood pub may have undergone a sleek reno in 2019, but it retains its strong community feel and laid-back atmosphere from the front bar to the bistro and olive tree-lined outdoor area. You’ll find a huge 24 beers on tap, a varied cocktail and wine menu, weekly specials, happy hours and live music on Saturday and Sunday.
