The Great Northern Hotel

A local landmark, The Great Northern Hotel is The North Shore’s most popular meeting place.

Magnificently renovated and open 7 days for lunch and dinner, the Great Northern Hotel offers exceptional dining and entertainment facilities. A warm, wood-panelled interior complements our restaurant’s outstanding menu and friendly service. In winter, recline in an antique chesterfield lounge by the open fire, while in summer you can relax with friends in the spacious garden courtyard over an icy cold beer.

Located on the corner of Mowbray Road and the Pacific Highway, Chatswood, The Great Northern is a ten minute walk from either Chatswood or Artarmon railway stations, and only a short taxi trip to the heart of the city.

Whether it’s a quick drink after work, a lazy Sunday afternoon family lunch, or a night out with friends that you’re looking for, The Great Northern has the atmosphere and reputation to deliver. Open Monday to Saturday until midnight (and 10pm on Sundays), we invite you to try us now – you won’t be disappointed.

*Strict dress regulations apply.

 

Bars

Set in beautiful surroundings, enjoying a drink at the Great Northern is an experience like no other.

With a wide variety of local and imported beers, try a fresh schooner on tap or select from our comprehensive range of bottled beers. Our wine list features a wide selection of quality Australian vintages to suit any budget, or for something different sample our wine of the month. Of course, we also have an extensive range of spirits, shooters, pre-mixed and non-alcoholic beverages.

While a drink on its own in a sensational atmosphere is enough for most, those wanting something more should take advantage of our four pool tables (pool competition Thursday nights with prizes totalling over $200), or perhaps a Saturday bet in our fantastic Pub-Tab facilities may appeal. Of course, with 56 TV screens (including super screens in the public bar), the Great Northern is the ideal venue to catch all the upcoming sporting action.


dining Dining

Open for lunch and dinner 7 days

There's nothing quite like great food, friendly service and a fantastic atmosphere. Open for lunch and dinner 7 days, The Great Northern Hotel is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious cook-your-own steak, or try something from our extensive a-la-carte menu featuring weekly blackboard specials and kids meals.

Quality produce freshly prepared by our experienced chefs and served in generous helpings are complemented by our comprehensive wine list. Dine outdoors in the tranquil surroundings of our beergarden, or retreat to the warm intimacy of our dining area. The brasserie is reminiscent of yesteryear, with Western Australian jarrah table-tops and detailed wood-panelled walls. A roaring open sandstone fireplace will ensure you lose yourself dining in an atmosphere like no other.

Many of our menu classics remain, with the addition of home-made pizzas and steaks available from the kitchen.

To ensure your table we recommend you book early for groups of four or more, on (02) 9419 4555. For larger bookings over 30 people, visit our Functions page now.
