At ALEX&Co you can enjoy an extended happy hour session with refreshing $5 schooners and delicious $10 pizza from 3-5pm Monday to Saturday and 2-5pm on Sunday. They’ve got crowd-pleaser beer classics on tap including Furphy, Hahn Super Dry and James Squire 150 lashes. Their ALEX&Co twist on the traditional Hawaiian pizza with double smoked bacon, chilli paste, and pineapple is great for fans of the famous meat and fruit pizza topping combo.

For classic hotel charm with a contemporary twist

The Winston was one of the first local venues to tap into the craft beer market and its extensive range of craft beers on tap make it a fine contender for an afternoon (and into the evening) session. For American style craft beers try the Old Mate Pale Ale by Moon Dog Craft Brewery or the Feral Brewing Company’s Biggie Juice, otherwise the Budgy Smuggler Pale Ale by Nomad Brewing Co. is an Australian must-try brew. You can choose from its range of bars, from the charming classic hotel style bar and dining room inside, to the sun-soaked terrace and pavilions surrounded by lush gardens for those who prefer an alfresco experience. Their gourmet pizza menu is switched around regularly so as you work your way through the craft beers you can mix up your pizza choices too. You’ll also get to enjoy live music while you digest your pizza and sip your beer every Friday night from 9.30pm.

For a Mamma Mia experience 

Mamas & Papas brings the Mediterreanean care-free vibes to Parramatta with their delicious range of pizzas and beers. There are pizza base sizes to suit every appetitie - from 11 inches, to 13 inches, to a whopping half-metre pizza (nicknamed mama mia) all made with delicious traditional mozarella cheese. When it comes to beers, you've got the Aussie highlights - Hahn Premium, Pure Blonde, James Squire, Coopers as well as the international flavours of Peroni and Corona. Pair the Corona with the Mexicana pizza (pepperoni, capsicum, onion and chilli) or try the Mamas Special (grilled chicken, fresh tomato, herbs and aioili) and Papas Aussie Special (ham, bacon and egg). To top it all off, sit back, try some shisha and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

For home comforts

If you prefer to eat pizza and drink beer from the comfort of your home, you can still make it a special night and order-in. Manaeesh Bakery & Pizza might be a no-frills spot to eat-in, but their authentic middle eastern style pizza is always fresh, piping hot and one of the best value-for-money takeaway pizzas in Parramatta. Try their classic oregano and cheese or spinach and cheese pizzas.

  • Address: 46 Macquarie Street, Parramatta NSW 2150
  • Phone: (02) 9891 5219
  • Order: Uber Eats

For some more gourmet pizza options, check out John’s Pizza and Pasta menu. Their pizza bases are crispy and seasoned to perfection – they don’t make the common mistake of making their pizzas too salty or oily. Try the Mediterranean if you are a fan of grilled eggplant and enjoy the generous lathering of pesto aioli on top. Their Marinara and Garlic Prawns are also winners if you fancy a taste of the ocean.   

Wash down your delicious takeaway pizza with something that has a bit of local flavour from Parramatta’s very own brewhouse, the Riverside Brewing Company. All their hand-crafted beers are brewed on-site and you can buy them fresh from the source at their cellar door (Fridays and Saturdays 2-6pm) or from a range of bottle shops. From the fruity, to the hoppy, to the spicy as well as the smooth and easy-to-drink, they cater for seasoned craft beer drinkers as well as those with a more easy-going taste. Try their Sixty-Nine Summer Ale for an easy-drinking beer with a citrus and passionfruit aroma and clean, refreshing finish.
