The Terrace on Pittwater at the Newport Arms Hotel is “not your typical pub meal”
Located at Newport on Sydney’s northern beaches, on the beautiful stretch of water known as Pittwater, the pub and restaurant have incredibly picturesque views across to Bayview. Even the bistro downstairs is a fantastic location to grab a hearty meal but head upstairs if you really want to celebrate in style.
Outside the restaurant on street level there is a sandstone wall where the wheelchair access ramp is that makes a great backdrop for location photographs of the bride & groom, especially at dusk when the lights add a warm, romantic glow. The entrance to The Terrace is yet another photo opportunity, a quiet moment before you enter the wedding reception.
Once inside there is a separate room for guests to be served pre-dinner drinks. Then through to the recently renovated and very chic dining room shaped as a crescent with large floor-to-ceiling windows allowing you to take in the breathtaking scene. The dance floor and bridal table are on a level above the guest seating helping them to better see the speeches, cake cutting and bridal waltz. The curved nature of the room also facilitates them watching the proceedings.
If the wedding is in the evening you might like to decorate the room with tea-candles to add to the ambience. Then with the lights low enjoy the flickering flames reflected in the glass during the first dance.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the chef knows what he’s doing back there in the kitchen. He’s certainly good enough to score the restaurant some well-deserved awards!
