Frequently Asked Questions

Answers Supplied by AHA NSW

Restriction on Groups of More than 10

The current Public Health Order expressly provides that “no person may be on the premises as part of an individual group of more than 10 persons”. This means that venues cannot take bookings for more than 10 persons, and have them seated at separate tables.

The only exception to this is in respect of a gathering immediately after a wedding, funeral or memorial service which permits:

  • In the case of a wedding, no more than 20 persons.
  • In the case of a funeral or memorial service, no more than 50 persons.

Any type of gathering (apart from the above exceptions) remains covered by this 10 person restriction. This includes conferences or any other type of business or non-business related event. We have been made aware of non-member organisations and venues organising and promoting a range of events and functions where attendance of more than 10 persons is likely. To be clear, such events and functions are not permitted under the current Public Health Order.

Physical Distancing – Groups at the same table

It remains our advice that groups who attend and are seated at the same table together (which must be no more than 10) are not required to be seated 1.5 metres apart, irrespective of whether that group is from the same household or not. We are aware that licensing police in certain regions have taken a differing view on this matter. We have raised this matter with Liquor and Gaming NSW and asked for clarification to be provided in an FAQ document which is currently being finalised. In the meantime, members are advised to continue to rely upon our advice as stated.

Nice place to catch a lunch or dinner in Camden. Always open on Sunday until late which is great for Camden. Food is tasty and varied but a tad above average in cost. Expect lunch for two with a starter a couple of of beers to run about $100.

Great friendly table service, meals were really good. This is a fantastic place to go with your friends to have a cocktail or two (the designated driver should try the mocktails, their just as good)

Barenz is always like a great hug if it's chilly & you need a hot chocolate. On a hot Summer evening, one of their cocktails will certainly refresh. Of course the major attraction is the Barenz Menu- taste for every palate and each perfect dish served with a smile. It has an atmosphere unlike any other in this area and I think it is for this reason Barenz will remain friendly & extremely busy. And as our area evolves this unique restaurant/ place to be, will also evolve ❤

Fantastic environment, great staff, function food was great!! Music did get louder as the dinner went on, and the older guests were a little overwhelmed by it, but that's what happens when you have a bar/ night club feel inside a restaurant.. We all had a great time anyway and the outdoor smoking area was very welcoming!!

Reasonably priced, great atmosphere, a cosy place for either a light meal with a coffee, or a full restaurant dining experience. Fully licenced with a wide range of drinks including cocktails. Suits the solitary diner, or also large groups. Bookings are advised to avoid disappointment.

I love coming to Barenz, especially in the summer because it has a very casual and open vibe. They have a large array of drinks and I find they occasionally change their food menu which adds a bit of variety ... change is always good! The only thing I star them down on is service; staff could be a little bit more attentive, especially when checking up on whether you need anything additional or are generally just enjoying your meal. Other than that, i've never had a negative experience ... keep up the good work, guys!

Generous portions and friendly staff. Great coffee as well (but my coffee was luke warm when it arrived). Always busy, this is a great sign, and filled with locals, which makes me love the atmosphere. Have only ever come for breakfast, so cannot comment on lunch or dinner.

Had a wonderful night here with family. Very accomadating to young children, even late on a friday night. Only fault would be when ordering meals, we had a few requests like no mushrooms in one of the pastas and veggies to be served with the kids menu fish instead of chips for a 2 year old which didn't come as requested. Great little venue!

We were visiting the area and chose Barenz after seeing some good reviews & a mention in Sydney Weekender. We enjoyed some of the Hope Pale Ale and had a great meal of prawn & chorizo linguine which was smoky in flavour with well cooked and tasty prawns. We also had 2 pizzas, a supreme & half peri peri chicken/prawn which were both fresh & delicious. We also had a pear salad & Caesar salad which were very nice. The service from our waiter was a little clumsy but otherwise our food & drinks were delicious & we would definitely go back.

Went for an organised 60th Birthday for my sister. Nice surrounds out in the open / private area toward the back of the location.Staff had privided enough different seating ranging from bar stools n table to chairs and bench seating on tables. The bar guy was friendly and good cleaning up service of plates. The young children could not get out of the setting which was good safety wise.
