Visited both Oct -12 and Oct -15. Yet another one of the places mentioned when talking about Sydney’s oldest hotel/pub. Home of the Three Sheets that many love, but if only having one I can recommend Victory Bitter if available. Now serves sample paddles! Latest visit had late lunch, food was good.

Latest visit on Friday October 9, 2015. Arrived shortly after regular lunch hours. Shared 2 sampled paddles and a beef nachos with my brother. Yes, now they have paddles! Quite a bit of people, we did manage to get a table though. Nice place, friendly staff.

Visited early and over lunch on July 12, 2013.
Walked their from my hostel down at Haymarket, took me about 35 minutes, was fairly easy to walk.
They had 7 beers on tap this day, not possible to get a tasting paddle or samples though, smallest serving were half pints, only other possibility were full pints. I got all seven beers as half pints, so spent a few hours here and got slight bit tipsy too.
They have free wifi, but blocks beer places, such as ratebeer.
Very cold served beers, but that is the standard in Oz it seems. Porter was out this day, replaces with a seasonal stout.
Very calm around 11 am when I arrived, got very busy from noon and on though.
I ate the fish and chips, about as good as they come, standard I mean. Nice surroundings.
Friendly fast service, no problem getting a tab and paying with your card in the end.
Feels like an English pub with many locals and a few tourists.
A bit older gentleman plus a few young pretty girls working the bar.
I can see myself returning, nice area around it too.

When we visited, the server at the bar went out of her way to get me a taste of one of their flagship beers that had just run out. Did not stay at the hotel as did not realize they had one. Very nice classic building with great interior decor.

That’s a good place. Dark ones are wonderful. If I’m not mistaken, this is Australia’s oldest brewpub.

We visited this brewpub on 13.2.2015. Located in a quite nice area of Sydney - The Rocks. Very nice old building, claims to be the oldest hotel in Sydney. Inside very British, typical Pub style. They brew around 7 beers (4 pale and 3 dark ones). The small brew house is in the back room. We had only the pale ales, they are all light but absolutely clean and ok. For dinner we had Pizza, the only food they served this day, ok but small and very expensive.

Ended up here on Friday night, this place was pack. Nice old building. The beer was decent. Didn’t try the food, there is a small eating area facing the brewery.

Taxi driver told me this was the oldest pub in Sydney. Could actually be true. Looked lived in, in a good way. Friendlyvstaff. No tasting paddles, though, which was surprising for a brewpub. Beers were mediocre at best. Didn’t try the food.

Nice oldish-school pub in The Rocks area - I like the inside, especially the fireplace! Clientele maybe a bit older, which is not a negative. Good service and nice to try their brewpub beers, preferred the schooner size. Beers served slightly too cold as others have noted.

One of my favorites in town (first bring The Local) actually. The beers are English in approach, and would benefit from cask-conditioning. The Trafalgar and the Victory were quite nice. Sizing is also British: halves and pints only. Cool place.
