Sometimes, we mums and dads just need to go to the pub. And if you live in the north of Sydney, you’re luck to have a few family-friendly ones to visit.
Here’s a good one! The Terrey Hills Tavern has a small kids’ play area, lots of wide open spaces inside and out, a Balinese style beer garden, plus a kids’ menu.
This is the outdoor eating area, lots of it is covered. If you have wild little ones, might be hard to stop them leaping into the water.

I went one evening with twins and two 11 year olds, and they enjoyed the food very much.
The littlies had a kids’ meal of chicken nuggets and chips…. groan, they would love that wouldn’t they?! Kids meals cost $7 – $8. Add in a pitcher of lemonade just to cover all the major food groups… oh dear…
The older boys had adults meals. One had a meatlovers’ pizza which was huge and laden with chunky meat, it was a bit too spicy for him though. The other lad loved the ribs and I enjoyed Moroccan lamb. Mains cost $16-30.
There are often mid-week specials eg two meals for the price of one etc
The children’s play room is pretty small but all four kids jumped around in there for quite a while, longer than I expected ie a whole glass of wine was drunk. There’s also a quiet TV room for kids.
You can see the menus and all details here.
We’ll go again. We’ll wish the mains were a bit less pricey and that the kids meals were healthier… but it’s handy and easy and that means a lot after a hectic week.
