Pumphouse Sydney Reopens with a Stunning New Look

Pumphouse Sydney is back and debuting an entirely new design. Like most Sydney businesses, the Darling Harbour restaurant was forced to close its doors during the lockdown mid last year. Having taken the time to refurbish the venue, Pumphouse Sydney opens once again and has never looked better. Taking its design inspiration from Australia’s industrial era, the period in which the historic venue was built, the restaurant’s new features celebrate the unique heritage of the building.

Inside, you will find a mix of high-end finishings and more rustic industrial features. There are works from Australian artist, Lance Corlett, stunning timber furnishings and striking metallic details. Guests can choose from a range of spaces including an intimate wine room, cosy fireplace seats and an open terrace with views of Darling Square.

And it’s not just the venue that has undergone a transformation. The Pumphouse Sydney food and wine menus have been given a similar overhaul. With Head Chef Anthony Kirk at the helm, the team have designed a delicious new food menu that’s set to impress. Combing hearty Australian pub food with indulgent grazing plates, the menu is designed to keep guests satisfied. With a focus on seasonal produce, the menu features the best of Australian seafood, including fresh Sydney rock oysters, southern calamari, Tasmanian ocean trout, as well as a selection of seasonal vegetables, meats and cheeses.

Dessert wise, it’s hard to go past the restaurant’s signature waffles. From a lamington waffle with 42 per cent couverture milk chocolate, strawberry gum and tasty coconut ice cream to the decadent Banoffee Pie waffle with sticky caramel, torched meringue and banana ice cream, you won’t be leaving with an empty stomach.

As expected, the drinks menu is just as impressive with an evolving selection of beers, wines and cocktail choices. Being one of Sydney’s first microbreweries, guests will enjoy the diverse beer list with favoured craft beers such as the Thunderbolt Strong Ale epitomising the venues take on the drink. Wine drinkers get the chance to sample a selection of Australian and international wines in the private dining room, with QR codes available to scan and learn about the tasting notes. Finally, the cocktail list is as innovative and stylish as you may expect with the delicious vanilla and passionfruit Steam Punk, the gin-based and lychee flavoured The Darling and the classic Pumphouse Negroni.
