Time Out Sydney

Fight the chills with a pint of something dark, a plate of something hot and a fireplace to toast those frigid toes at these cosy pubs

Best pubs with fireplaces

From blazers in the Rocks to an outdoor fire pit in Terrey Hills, these are the flames you need to be getting in front of this winter. BYO woolly socks.


Pubs with board games

Check out the best pubs for whiling away a cold day with Connect Four, ping pong, darts and more. And yes, one has Guess Who? – which was the first question on your mind.

Cosy pubs with great food

Line your belly and warm your cockles with big plates of hot treats at these Sydney taverns serving excellent wintry pub grub. We've got yopu covered for everything from a killer schnitty to something more upmarket.

Pubs with entertainment

You'll need something to keep you dazzled and engaged if you're going to hole up in an ale house for winter with us. What's your particular poison: theatre? Movies? Crab racing?
