    What a brilliant dining experience!!! The wait staff were friendly, welcoming and knew what they were talking about re offering advice on the menu. The bar staff even offered my husband taste tests before selecting his beer of choice. We go out for dinner twice a month and never have we experienced such a delightful environment and the food was superb!!! We will definitely be returning on a regular basis! Thanks for such a great way to end 2019 and see you soon in the new year!!

    We ordered 3 steaks and they were cooked as requested - unfortunately the cut of my steak had too many tendons and was too chewy. The truffle butter was a nice accompaniment to the steak and seating was comfortable.

    Burwood Inn

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. So sorry your cut of meat was not to your liking. Hopefully you will try again as our steaks are generally amazing. The Truffle Butter is my personal favourite accompaniment with the steaks, along with the peppercorn or port jus. Hope to see you back at the Burwood again soon. Cheers, Sas and The Burwood Team

    A cozy and classy atmosphere, venue seems like a refurbished, European style pub. There is no drink service - you have to get up and walk to the bar to even look at the wine list. If you only want a glass of something, prices ranged from $6.50-$11 per glass. Very limited desserts - I only saw one on the specials board which said it was a chocolate pop tart? Sounded dubious so I skipped that. We were greeted by a very lovely waitress, but then we were seated for about 15 minutes before another waitress saw to us. It was apparently her first night, which showed - she didn't know much about the menu and was not friendly. The steaks are worth the hype though, very delicious and flavourful. Prices range from $28-$58, and all steaks come with green beans, 5-6 triple-cooked chips and your choice of a sauce.

    Burwood Inn

    Hi. Thank you for your very comprehensive review... :-) It is always great to get feedback on the way we do things and how we are going... There are wine lists available in the restaurant, perhaps from now on we should offer them as people are being seated... it has always worked for us, not doing table service on drinks and our customers are generally happy with that. We do not get asked a lot for desserts, as we are more known for our steaks, and so do not always have a lot on offer, to save waste. Sorry the chocolate tart did not sound to your liking but I believe it was quite popular among other guests. Our restaurant manager shared your view on the friendliness of the girl who was being trialed that night, and she was not offered a position. We take great pride not only in our amazing steaks, but also in our great service and the friendliness of our staff. Thanks again for taking the time to review us. Cheers, The Burwood Team.

    Initially the service was VERY slow.This was nothing to do with the behaviour of the staff but the lack of them. However when we did incounter the staff they were pleasant and professional.A suggestion perhaps would have the publican or equivalent to tend only to phones and service desk.

    Burwood Inn

    HI, Thanks so much for taking the time to review us and offer your suggestions... Lunch is always a difficult one to staff for as you often do not know how busy you are going to be.. I am sorry you were kept waiting to begin with, but hope you still enjoyed your meal and time with us. Cheers, The Burwood Team.

About the restaurant

Welcome to the Burwood

The old corner pub in beachside Merewether is home to Newcastle’s best steak restaurant and a cosy, down to earth pub environment.

Family owned and managed, The Burwood Inn was fully renovated and restored in 2011. Come for a drink, a bite to eat, or stay upstairs in the boutique pub rooms for the full Burwood experience.

The obvious dish to order is steak, however, these guys to a mean confit duck, a mean ricotta gnocchi and a really excellent chicken parma.

Come and see for yourself!

Best dish: any of the steak dishes.
