The Oaks Hotel in Netural Bay is iconic in the area and is our favourite pub venue for 2017.

The inside of the venue is what you'd expect from any pub - bit run down, bit smelly and a bit crowded. What sets The Oaks apart is the beer garden outside - it's spacious and adorned with fairy lights that give it an open, relaxed feel. Perfect for summer drinks with friends.
Iconic venue that you reach not long after you get off the harbour bridge
And turn left/travel east. Charming building with a big oak in the back garden, adorned with fairy lights. Honest food and prices , I've also been functions in the private rooms upstairs, they food that was delivered to our room (for a high school reunion) was Ok.
Always a buzzing crowd .
