“$10 Pub Food with a Harbour View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

When in Newcastle, it is worth catching the Stockton Ferry to Stockton and walking to the General Washington for a meal. We had the $10 special (Salt and Pepper Squid and Salad) with a table that looks across the park to the Harbour and Newcastle Skyline. Stockton has the best view of the Cathedral at night. The pub has been refurbish and the style is modern. The cafe/restaurant is sectioned off from the pub/bar. It has a glass walled play room for families with young children.

“Surf and Turf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

Ordered the special Surf and Turf for $18 which also came with a Schooner of Beer. Steak was tasty and well cooked, serving sizes did differ a little between the two meals my only complaint. The special was served with chips and salad. Chips were hot and salad was dressed with a nice dressing a good pub meal. The highlight was the deserts, I ordered the sticky date, and it was mouth watering delightful. My husband had caramel macadamia tart and this was also good. If the view of the harbor had not been blocked by parked cars that night, it could have nearly passed as romantic. Service friendly and efficient by both the waitresses, we will definitely give this restaurant another go.
