As a rather quiet suburb of Sydney, naysayers may never have had too much of a reason to venture as far as Gregory Hills, but with the arrival of Gregory Hills Hotel, now, they definitely do. This is a new pub and if its early popularity is anything to go by, it seems it’s hear to stay. Set on Lasso Road, just a stone’s throw from the main Camden Valley Way, it’s a large set up with space enough for everyone. By that we mean there’s live entertainment, a kids area and plenty of seating fit for drinks or casual family dining. The food is terrific, too, with vast menus that offer the best pub classics as well as some curious treats. This is a pub you can’t afford to miss.
Even though Gregory Hills Hotel has something for everyone, it certainly doesn’t skimp on style or attention to detail. This Sydney restaurant and pub – excellently located on Lasso Road in Gregory Hills, obviously – is as eclectic as it is contemporary. And that’s a balance that’s hard to get right. On arrival at Gregory Hills Hotel you’ll be met with a range of seating from high stools at the bar to cushty leather sofas by the fire, as well as wood floors, tiled floors, interesting lighting arrangements and plenty of exposed steel. Oh, and there’s also a charming al fresco area. This really is a beautiful spot. A jewel in Gregory Hills’ crown, if you please.
As well as being the perfect spot for a drink in Gregory Hills, the Gregory Hills Hotel also houses a very accomplished kitchen, serving the best of Australian pub food. There are pizzas and plenty of sharer plates, a light bar menu that provides casual nibbling, while some highlights from the main menu have to be the roasted pork knuckle with beer gravy and mash, the chicken parm or the panko crumbed schnitzel. As we said, if you’re after Australian classics, you’ll find a strong showing of them here. Fit for any occasion, Gregory Hills Hotel is worth travelling from Sydney for, because Gregory Hills is certainly proud to have it.
Great place to eat would highly recommend to anyone who loves good food and a beer.. The pork knuckle is absolutely sensational and the service is exceptional
Service was fast and food was great.. The people working there are always very efficient and they are happy to help in any way they can.
Great restaurant and food and service. We were greeted on arrival and the food came within 10 minutes for entrée and 20 minutes for mains, plus the food tasted incredible. highly recommend.
The food and service were both fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed our night. We had a large group and the food all came out together! Very happy. Will definitely return!
Being a Sunday, we expected the bistro to be busy but with the amount of staff working in the kitchen, we figured it wouldn't take more than 30 mins for mains to arrive. Upon ordering food, we were told there was a 45 minute wait for mains but the entree should be out in about 10-15. We thought that was fine as at least we'd have the entree at a reasonable time. We got our drinks and looked forward to our entrees of wedges and cheesy fries. It took about 30 mins for our entree to arrive and then, what seemed like seconds, our mains arrived as well. This meant some of the food was going to go cold before we got to it. My meat pizza had very little flavour, which surprised me. It was very bland, no zing at all. There appeared to be no seasoning or spices and there was too much oily cheese for such a thin base. Perhaps the volume of cheese had absorbed some of the meat flavour. My son's parmigiana was only topped with cheese, there was no tomato sauce. He said it tasted awful. He also said his cheesy fries didn't taste very nice either. Perhaps a different brand of cheese would be better? My husband said his schnitzel was tasteless as well. These are foods we order at other eateries regularly as we love them but we will unfortunately will not be ordering them here again, which is a shame as we were looking forward to this hotel becoming our local as we like atmosphere and like being able to see live music whilst we're having a bite to eat. The burgers we ate there some time ago were great but the recent food wasn't. It made us wonder if anyone was actually tasting it to see that it had flavour. Also, perhaps there should be one person responsible for getting out the entrees. A plate of chips or wedges should not take 30 mins, no matter how busy the venue. The kitchen seemed very disorganised. Sorry for the long rant but it's not often all 3 of us are disappointed in our meal and I've only written because I believe the venue has great potential to be as successful as some of the places we trek to in the Eastern Suburbs.
Always great experience at the Gregory Hills Hotel the atmosphere and good is amazing. The only issue is our food took almost an hour to get to us for a table of 8 and we all order at the same time by food was split up some of us got it first and others got it later and the kids got their food last. Wasn't happy with that.
This was our first time at Gregory Hills Hotel and and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were courteous, the service was prompt and the food was fantastic. This is the first of many lunches we will be having ..couldn't recommend it highly enough for singles, couple or families.
We had a mixture of starters and mains between five people and all were very nice. The pork knuckle was exceptional good but the gravy let the dish down. The garlic bread is always a winner and the crumb on the chicken snitchell was fantastic, with just enough salad and chips too. The calamari and buffalo wings were great with just enough heat in the wings, but the blue cheese sauce was my favourite. The gravy is the only thing that I didn't really enjoy. Overall a great night with good company and great food.
It was a lovely place not too crowded with tables like some places. Kids play area good, staff friendly and everyone was happy with the food. I don't eat dairy and they accidently put fetta on my burger but they were happy enough to make me another one. I think one thing that would be good is if they could have one vegan/vego option on their menu. The mushroom burger is a bit boring, if they got some gardien beefless burgers they could make a fabulous cheese burger. Otherwise it was a great place and we will def come back.
The reason for the 4 instead of the 5 is I don't like the 2 hour turn around for bookings, you feel rushed and if food takes a while to come out you might not even get to enjoy it. But other than that the food was great, staff were very helpful and we were able to move to another space as it wasn't busy, but if it were on a Saturday Night that could have been a different story and we would have had to leave after an hour and 45 mins so they can reset the table!
