One of the oldest pubs in Sydney has reopened for the first time in 30 years and honestly, it’s never looked better. The Terminus Hotel is serving up a twenty first century menu with an Aussie wine list to match and those happen to be a few of our favourite things.
The new-look Pyrmont pub is throwing it way back to its 170-year-old roots but doesn’t shy away from a few shiny new fixtures either. Heritage green tiles line the walls behind leather booth seating, the sandstone courtyard is draped in the OG vines that once covered the building, and the nine boutique hotel rooms will make you feel just like the 1920s-style baller you are.
On the food front, you can expect a fresh menu that steers away from your usual pub schnitties and steaks. Chef Bektas Ozcan puts on a Turkish twist, with a weekly changing spread that focuses on charcoal cooking (because delicious). Think spice-cured salmon and his signature 24-hour lamb shoulder for starters. We’re sold.
The upstairs cocktail lounge, Vera’s, is everything Pyrmont has needs, wants and loves. With a clean design, colourful fit out and carafes of rosé spritz (yes really) coming over the bar, you can bet this will become your new weekend haunt quick smart.
