We booked but did not specify a table request but thankfully were seated on the veranda overlooking the fountains which was fantastic for a relaxing lunch. Our server was super friendly and efficient to all the patrons along the veranda.

Very basic menu, would be perfect area & venue to offer a tapas menu on a Saturday & Sunday arvo and give the very popular Italian restaurant Basement some decent competition! They turn at least 20. - 30 people away betwy4 - 6 pm tapas time, and you need to book weeks in advance! !

Love Customs House! It’s a great location in Newcastle, facing the water with gorgeous fountains out front. Been here many times for an iced coffee or beer but first time for a meal. We booked online which is super handy, it asks lots of questions (are you using entertainment book voucher, do you have pram?) we requested a table for 2 on the verandah which we got, they set the chairs together facing out which was a nice touch. We ordered a chicken liver pate to share for a starter - my goodness ! - best pate I’ve had. We both ordered surf and turf for main - so delicious - however - it is served in a bowl though, which was not ideal when trying to cut your steak. Waitress was just gorgeous - super helpful and fun.
We used the entertainment book which gave us a main meal free - bargain!
Lovely time had, will come back again for sure.

We booked and signed in with covid regulations in place. Sat down inside for dinner. We had 6 of us for dinner. The ambiance was very nice had a old feel from the hay day. The food was mouth watering. They had a small covid like menu. Although the food we chose was to die for fresh. The girl that was our waitress was lovely and tentative to pur table and great presence. Food came in within 15 mins of being ordered. The salt a pepper squid was the best ive had in a long time. My daughter raved about the surf and turf.
