The Bavarian unveils fabulous new restaurant and beer garden in the heart of Castle Hill
The Bavarian will make its debut in Castle Hill this week, bringing family-friendly dining, unrivalled Bavarian classics, and a spacious outdoor beer garden to Castle Towers Piazza.
The Bavarian Castle Hill will distribute 500 free hot dogs when it opens its doors at 5pm on Friday, 6 July.
The newest addition to The Bavarian clan accommodates 450 guests and boasts expansive balcony seating and beer garden overlooking Castle Hill’s bustling town centre. Seventy full-time and casual positions have been created.
A long, timber bar is positioned against a natural stone wall backdrop, while an open dining area features The Bavarian’s signature communal dining tables. High-table seating is scattered throughout the bar with several large-screen TVs promising an exciting schedule of sports games. The 200-seat outdoor balcony and beer garden offers a birds-eye view of Castle Hill’s busy CBD, and an abundance of lush green indoor plants add to the restaurant’s Bavarian charm.
Opening just in time for the winter school holidays, The Bavarian is inviting kids to eat for free every day of the week until Friday, 31 August between 11am and 3pm. The deal allows one child under 12 to eat for free from the kids menu, with a paying adult.
The diverse kids’, or “kinder,” menu features mac n cheese balls, chicken schnitzel, The Little Brat hot dog, grilled chicken wrap, grilled cheese sandwich, and a cheese burger served with a choice of mash or fries. A classic selection of haus-made gelato is also available in a trio of flavours: chocolate crumble, vanilla and strawberry.
For the adults, a menu of classic Bavarian dishes, including the signature crispy pork knuckle, schnitzels and sausages, is bolstered with a selection of mouth-watering shared platters. The Munich Brewer’s Platter features crackling pork belly, pork knuckle, haus sausages, schnitzel and traditional sides of sauerkraut red cabbage and bier jus, while the Sausage Platter includes sausages of all flavours and sizes, such as pork and maple bacon, chicken and coriander, pepper and garlic kielbasas and an extra-long frankfurter.
In addition to the kids’ menu specials there are changing daily specials, including a $20 schnitzel and 300ml beer on Tuesdays, and two-for-one cocktails on Thursdays.
Loaded schnitzels are also great bang for your buck valued at $29. Each are generously smothered, covered and loaded with toppings and sauces in ode to a country that they’re named after.
Build-your-own salads and wraps make up a delicious menu of lighter bites, which also includes salted pretzels, chicken wings, haus-made pickles and dips and spicy squid.
The Bavarian also features 17 fabulous beers on tap, including imported favourites Löwenbräu, Franziskaner, Stiegl and Hofbräu and a large range of house craft beers supplied by Urban Craft Brewing Co, all of which can be enjoyed from one of the restaurant’s renowned 1-litre glass steins.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said he was thrilled to bring another of the group’s Bavarian restaurants to Sydney’s Hills Shire region.
“Our Bavarian restaurants are solid favourites with Sydney diners, and we’re proud to be bringing this newest addition to Castle Hill’s flourishing restaurant scene,” he said.
The Bavarian Castle Hill joins a growing portfolio of Rockpool Dining Group Bavarian restaurants in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
