Chop N Grind
For the best burgers on the Central Coast (AGFG readers choice two years running), you can’t go past the immense creations at Chop N Grind. This beloved joint is ‘no fuss, a little messy and nothing pretentious’, meaning you can focus on really diving into that burger and craft beer without any reservations.
This newly renovated, nautical themed hotel is the perfect venue for a laidback game of pool, cocktails with friends or a relaxed meal from the Lagoon Bistro which boasts ocean views. Live entertainment and weekly specials keep the Terrigal Hotel a favourite among locals who frequent the pub after a long day at the beach.
Pocket Bar Terrigal
Retro décor, exposed bricks and a fun approach to cocktail mixing sets the tone for this celebrated Central Coast bar. Bespoke cocktails and an ever-changing wine and beer selection is complemented by a delectable offering of share plates and tapas dishes which will make you want to stick around Pocket Bar until closing time.
Four Hands Pizza Bar & Grill
Terrigal’s favourite pizza place, Four Hands is a casual spot to settle in with a pizza and all-Australian craft beer in the alfresco dining space or terrace. The inventive pizza offering is accompanied with a range of moreish tapas dishes and weekly cocktail specials so there is always something new to sample each visit.
Breakers Country Club
Set back from the beach and overlooking Terrigal Lagoon, Breakers Country Club caters to everyone in the family. A round of golf or lawn bowls will keep the adults happy, while the kids will be entertained for hours in the outdoor, undercover playground. From the Skillion Brasserie and Burger Hut on the alfresco deck to the in-club café you certainly won’t go hungry.
