One of the best Christmas party venues in Sydney

We truly are the Lucky Country, and that is never more apparent than at Christmas when the sun is shining over the sparkling harbourfront in Darling Harbour.

As Hunter & Barrel is located in the heart of Cockle Bay, our restaurant offers some of the most beautiful views on the waterfront. Paired with our stylish and spacious restaurant dining areas and bar, this view makes for an enviable location for any family lunch or dinner, or for any work Christmas party in Sydney. 

Additionally, Cockle Bay’s central location makes it easy to organise large groups to get to and from Hunter & Barrel.

Flexible Functions

Looking to impress a select few clients, or celebrate a successful year with the entire office? Bringing in your other half for an intimate Christmas dinner in Sydney, or inviting the entire family for a big celebration? 

No matter the size or purpose of your group, Hunter & Barrel is flexible in meeting your needs. 

We can work with small groups as well as large, and we offer indoor and outdoor seating options for up to 30 and 40 people respectively.

The Hunter & Barrel Menu

Harking back to the early beginnings of culinary tradition, the Hunter & Barrel menu brings together the ancient cooking methods used by the hunter, with the modern knowledge and skills of today. 

Each feast of high quality meats, seafood, and vegetarian dishes is prepared with care. Some are cooked with a traditional rotisserie, while others are stewed, slow cooked, or prepared over a coal grill. Seasonings and plate additions are understated to allow the quality of the main fare to shine, and no serving will leave you hungry. 

At the heart of the Hunter & Barrel menu lies the concept of communal meals – feasts shared over the metaphorical campfire. Dishes are designed to be shared, enjoyed by many to bring many together for a Christmas lunch or dinner in Sydney with a difference. 

The best Xmas lunch in Sydney, and the best dinners, are complemented by a full bar and skilled mixologists. And whether you’re opting for an a la carte experience or a set menu for a group, our extensive wine list, barrel-aged cocktail selection, and chilled beer and ciders are sure to please everyone in the group.
