The Petersham Inn takes pride of place in the heart of Petersham, where the pub has proudly served the local community from its location on the Parramatta Road since the 19th century. The current bar occupies the premises of one of Sydney’s iconic corner hotels, and is open from 12 noon every day, offering a menu that represents all that is good about Australian cuisine – their chef has won awards – and solid pub grub best accompanied by a schooner or two: the selection here is filled with curated wines and craft beers.
Petersham is one of Sydney’s oldest and long-inhabited suburbs, and at the meeting point of Parramatta Road and Phillips Street in the centre of the district stands one of the city’s most storied buildings. The art-deco pub on the corner of the block is now occupied by the Petersham Inn, the latest in a list of bars present in this location since 1860. They continue to provide the public of the inner west with a wide selection of curated Australian craft beers, as well as food from 12 noon every day.
The food at the Petersham Inn is exactly what one would expect from a classic Australian hotel and bar, if that classic bar was staffed by an award-winning chef. Dishes at this Parramatta Road establishment take in the cultural melange of Sydney’s inner west: pizzas, schnitzels, fish & chips and steaks are local favourites. In fact, almost everything could be considered a local favourite – so much so that we recommend booking a table in advance, as the Petersham Inn can get very busy, even on weekdays!
