Ever on the lookout for places with amazing atmosphere, great food and scenic views.

For a great night out that won't break the budget, head down to the Bayview Tavern on Victoria Rd in Gladesville.
Grab a beer, wine or spirit from the friendly bar staff as you walk towards the two main dining areas, past a series of cosy booths.
With your pre-dinner drink in hand, sink into one of the Bayview's comfy lounges and watch the latest sporting events broadcast from flat screen TVs. Around the corner there's a second, smaller bar, handy for that much needed top up.
By now, the sounds and tantalising smells wafting from the kitchen are besieging your senses, egging you on towards the service counter where diners congregate to order their meals.
The Bayview's menu offers a selection of starters, mains and pub classics. From tasting plates to pizzas and schnitzel, everybody is sure to find something to enjoy. It is what's called a seasonal menu, so expect dishes to alter slightly at different times of the year.
Craving a burger? The kitchen can whip up a juicy beef patty on a lightly toasted bun with melted cheese, beetroot relish, salad greens and a generous serving of thick-cut chips. Even the biggest of appetites might struggle to finish it all.
There's competition in the air on Thursday nights with Believe It Or Not Pub Trivia from 7:30pm and a music version on Tuesday evenings. There are prizes for the top 3 teams, a cash jackpot round before the winners are announced and the odd freebie. It can get a little noisy but otherwise this weekly event is fun and free. New teams can join at anytime. The bigger the brain power the better!
For folks wanting to unwind after work or enjoy a well cooked meal with friends, the Bayview Tavern is the place to be. Tables can fill up fast in the evenings so ring ahead to secure your spot.
