AC/DC’s former home, the Hampton Court Hotel in Kings Cross, has been refurbished.

New Hampton owner Kieran Coleman said, “Our intention with this venue from the beginning was to bring ‘The Rocks to The Cross’. We love the old Sydney feel of The Rocks, with its cobbled lanes and rich culture, and we wanted to bring that atmosphere into The Cross, which is traditionally known for being a bit more ‘dark and dingy’.”

New Hampton is a 450 person venue, complete with two separate bar areas, a fine-dining restaurant called Harvest, a VIP area with 100 person capacity, nightclub, pokies room and smoking area.

New Hampton has a private function room that can be hired out for corporate functions, product launches and birthday celebrations. It is open for lunch and dinner from 11am until late, seven days a week and accepts bookings.

Harvest restaurant is modern Australian with a French twist and offers dishes such as confit pork belly, crispy pig’s ear and chargrilled beef sirloin and fillet on the bone.

New Hampton has over 20 wines by the glass, featuring wines from Australia, France, Italy, New Zealand and the United States. The cocktail menu is a mixture of classic cocktails and some new creations, including the Hampton Ice Tea, Chocolate Sazerac and Belvedere Caramel Martini, to name a few.


One thought on “Hot venue: New Hampton

  1. This evening I decided to have a meal at the New Hampton Hotel
    in Kings Cross. I ordered the $30.00 Ribeye steak cooked medium.

    The meal arrived in due time, but on slicing the $30.00
    piece of steak open, I was disappointed that this steak had been overcooked.

    I informed to friendly bar staff at this venue and was offered
    a full refund my money or cook another meal for me. I declined all offers by the establishment, instead
    of providing feedback on the meal served to the duty manager.

    While there are no complaints of front office staff there are
    concerns if kitchen doe not know the difference between medium cooked and well
    done cooked steaks.
