If you're lucky enough to be a local on Sydney's Northern Beaches then you're already blessed with an abundance of incredible benefits like the stunning beaches, laid-back lifestyle and a slew of great dining options including mega watering hole, The Newport.

And now there's another reason this postcode is a great place to either call home or spend some quality time with the opening of dining, drinking and all round good time venue, Park House.

Park House

Park House is located in what used to be the iconic Mona Vale Hotel and after a huge reno and designer fitout the first of many exciting new spaces is open - Park House Food Merchants. Offering a 180-seat restaurant, outdoor cocktail bar, open fireplaces and casual lounge area - it's got the goods for a perfect Sunday afternoon sesh or easy Friday night après-work drinks and dinner.

Park House Food Merchants

The menu is social with food designed to share and is an inspired twist on SoCal's innovative mash up of Mexican, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. Think: zucchini, fetta and herb frittata,  wood-fried prawns,  chopped fattoush salad, smoked and slow-cooked lamb, or if you're super famished opt in for their signature slow-roasted suckling pig (48 hours notice required for this epic dish). Save space for the mouth-watering chocolate fudge brownie or the coconut soft serve.

Park House dessert

On the sips side think fresh flavours like their grapefruit margarita or the 'sunshine pop' which is a zesty combo of gin, Cointreau, watermelon and lemon juice.

Park House Food Merchants is open now with stage two, a craft beer bar called Front Yard Brews & Burgers launching in December (just in time for the silly season), followed by a food truck space in the car park called Parkside Truck Stop coming in early 2018. Event and party spaces will also be coming next year.

Park House is located at 2 Park St, Mona Vale. The restaurant is open Monday to Thursday 4pm - 10pm, Friday to Sunday 11am - 10pm. The bar is open Monday to Saturday 11am - late, Sunday 11am - 10pm.
