Sometimes you just need to escape the noise, sit out in the fresh air and share a brew with your mates. For those days, and for any other, the Courthouse Hotel has got you covered. Standing tall on the corner of Australia and Lennox Street, this 19th-century pub offers a bit of something for everyone. Inside, you can grab a seat at the bar to watch the footy or shoot some pool over a beer with the locals. Head out the back and you’re treated to a sprawling open courtyard where you can escape the hustle and bustle of King Street under tranquil fairy lights and leafy trees. Lively and welcoming, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better schooner in Sydney.
