Life with kids in Sydney City
Pyrmont Point Hotel is a great place to go for a meal with the family meal or catch up with friends. Bring along the little ones because it’s super kid friendly!
The Pyrmont Point Hotel is a heritage-listed pub with a bistro downstairs, lots of outdoor seating and a separate bar area. The bistro has a lovely atmosphere and is a cool retreat from the heat outside. It's lush green wall, water fountain and comfy bench seating along one wall gives it a very relaxing feel.There are lots of really nice spaces for functions. Upstairs Margot’s Lounge has plenty of comfortable chairs and ottomans and a large fireplace and Verandah Bar has balcony’s that overlook John Street Square and the old Pyrmont Public School bell tower. ;
Getting there is pretty hassle free. We have never had an issue finding street parking. It’s 1hr on Harris St and 2hr on John Street right outside the Hotel. You also have the option of light rail as the John Street Square station is minutes from the Hotel and can bring you out as far as Dulwich Hill or into Darling Harbour and Central.
KIDS EAT FREE every Sunday 12pm - 3pm (up to 10 years). Soft drink and ice cream not included.
We went on a Sunday and even though it was busy there was no problem finding a seat. We opted to sit outside as did many other families. After we ordered we played on the giant chess board and chased the pigeons. The vast outdoor area is not fenced but there are a few steps up to the street (apart from one ramp area) so it would slow kids down enough to catch them if they tried to escape!It was a very hot day when we visited so the ground was too hot for our little one to crawl around. Instead we took him over to a little grassy area at the corner of the square to burn off some energy.
My hubby got the Big Breakfast ($18 served until 4pm) and I got the Duck Salad on the Specials menu ($17). Breakfast was a hit but the duck salad was very small and didn’t have very much duck. I have since been back and had the chicken parma ($19) and we shared Wedges with sweet chilli sauce and sour cream ($8); they were both gorgeous and we got huge portions. They have a great highchair solution which attaches to the dining chairs. It’s sturdy and when it folds up, takes up very little room. They have colouring in for the kids and on NRL Grand Final Day they had Rabbitoh's and Bulldogs pictures to colour in. The kids meals are large and they have Kids Eat Free every Sunday 12pm - 3pm. They used to have face painting every Sunday but they stopped it for the Winter. Hopefully they will bring it back this summer!
Note: The toilets are upstairs and there is no change table. I changed my little man on the grassy area which is well away from the outdoor eating area.Tip: If you are planning on ordering food and drinks, the easiest option is to open a tab when ordering food and then go to the bar and add your drinks to it. I didn’t realise this and paid for my food and then realised the bar doesn’t take EFPTOS under $20 and the ATM was out of order. The ATM is in the lounge.
