head chef ANDY IS BACK

The dynamic duo is back! The much loved chef and restaurant manager team, Andrew and Camille are back at The Sydney Junction Hotel and staff and locals couldn’t be happier.

The talented duo met at SJs and a relationship between them blossomed while they bonded over their joint passion and commitment to making SJs the #1 spot for dining in Newcastle. We have just launched their new Spring menu… which is delicious if we do say so ourselves.

Awarded the 2016 AHA Best Casual Dining Experience in Northern Country NSWThe Sydney Junction hotel prides itself on great service, good value and delicious tasting pub food. SJ's provides simple, elegant cuisine at an affordable price that won't break the weekly bank budget. Our head chef prepares handcrafted plates showcasing locally-sourced produce and meats.

Our restaurant provides a relaxed and cosey atmosphere. You'll feel right at home with carefully selected foliage, industrial brick walls, traditional Victorian fireplace, exposed timber floors and warm mood lighting.

If you're looking for a kid friendly restaurant and cheap pub meals, then take five and make a booking and let our friendly staff do all the heavy lifting for you. Choose from our extensive drinks menu and experience Newcastle dining like you never have before.  

For large groups, we also offer set menus. Check out Function Guide for more details.
