The Time Out Sydney Pub Awards have once again gone through and highlighted the top performers in this city’s generous and ever-evolving pub scene. Much like the publications bar and food awards, the list serves as a comprehensive celebration of quality, awarding venues across 11 categories based on everything from best pub food and family-friendliness to best beer list and overall pub of the year.
