The Watson’s Bay Hotel always had the perfect location; next to the beach and a ferry wharf, and with views of the harbour to boot. But since the new look opened in October 2013, it has it all. With the huge makeover, the prices have gone up slightly, but if you like Instagram (like me), you will love this pub! The only downside – the schmiddies – one of my pet hates. But this can be avoided by ordering jugs of beer or carafes of cocktails. They also make up for serving drinks in smaller glasses, with their crab races every Sunday, activities for children in the school holidays, and The Kids Eat Free Menu from 5pm – 7pm on Sundays.
