“the Cape Grim beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

If you are only going to eat one steak in a year, this is the place to do it. There's a reason Tasmanian Cape Grim beef ends up in a tiny corner of Merewether NSW, and it's because the Cape Grim growers are very choosy about who cooks their produce. We are well-travelled and well-dined, and we can say that the steak that the Burwood Inn places before you is hard to match, even in Tassie. Five stars to the grower and the chef.

“Always great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

I was recommended to this hotel by some friends for a dinner and thought this will be the usual pub food and service. How wrong I was.
Great feel and atmosphere and quite funky.
Menu selection and quality of food excellent.
I enjoy a great steak and was not disappointed with the selection but you won't be disappointed with the variety as it has a selection to suit all tastes. I've has the fish, pasta etc.
Service is always consistent and pleasant so the staff are well trained and happy to please.
It's definitely now a favourite of our family after three visits. Only thing to re ember us that's it's located in Merewether.

“Always great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

I don't know why we just don't come here every week instead of trying all these other sub standard family friendly restaurants around town, by far the friendliest, tastiest meals in Newcastle. Highly recommend

“A Find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

We have been here about a year ago and were happy with the food and the renovations. Now they have taken that to the next level. Soft funky lighting, great menu with something for everyone, entertainment (Friday night), great wine list and our food was awesome. Panko crusted oysters is a must! A great night.
