At 5 Sawyers we are as proud of our history as we are to offer the next evolution in a bar experience. A unique blend of history and eclectic art, 5 Sawyers is a place where you can soak up the history of our city and feel right at home among elements of our past and inspired by quirky artworks that seem to reflect so well the personality of Cooks Hill.
Our inspiration for 5 Sawyers came from the idea of creating a place with great atmosphere that is deeply rooted in something authentic and what better story to tell than our past in this city. Together with a relaxed environment where you can enjoy the fruits of our region such as a glass of Hunter wine, chilled craft beer or a cheeky cocktail.
The 5 Sawyers food philosophy is to only use in-season, fresh and where possible, local ingredients. With a nod to the past we are using some traditional cooking methods like slow cooking but with a modern twist. Our seafood is sourced locally and oysters are opened to order.
We can cater to groups and we’re open Wednesday to Sunday, from 4pm till late weekdays and 3pm till late on weekends.
