Nice clean English-style pub in a very accessible part of town. The house brews are solidly done if not fantastic and there are a few bottles of (mostly) Aussie macros. Staff was friendly and reasonably knowledgable of the beer, but when closing time comes, they donít screw around. Iíve never seen a place get cleared out so fast when it hit 11:00. The door was locked and we were back on the street by 11:02.

Beautiful old pub located in the Rocks, the in-house beers were quite nice, visited on a Friday arvo and as expected was very busy, service was rushed but was well worth the visit to this historic pub.

Right on the Sydney Rocks a little bit of walk from Sydney Harbour, this pretty fun place looks like a English pub inside crossed with a German beer hall. Lots of people having fun and sort of a riot to visit for drinks at night. Sadly, they close way too early. I think something like 10pm so make sure you check the opening hours before you settle in. Tap list is pretty much all of their own beers: 8 or so on tap at any given time. Almost all are English styles plus they have a very nice Guinness clone. I know they have food, but I didnít get to try it. Definitely worth stopping in to try their beers on tap since in bottle form they donít hold up so well. The rye ale was pretty delicious but Iíd reckon they come out with some tap only stuff just about every month. Upstairs it seems you can get a hotel room, which could be really awesome. A little expensive, but so is everyplace in Sydney especially near the harbor.

English style pub and ales, really tough to get a spot at 2pm. The food didnít look to appetizing. The beers were very meh besides the Three Sheets, the porter was out. Bar tenders didnít know jack about beer. Not a spot Iíd come back to with Hart so close.

Historic pub with a stone and bare wood interior. Service was efficient, the Lord Nelson beers pleasant, if served a bit too cold, and the atmosphere sociable.

I had two weeks in Sydney during 2006, mostly trying beers and different bars.
This was my favourite drinking establishment. Open plan, plenty of serving area around the large bar and a good choice (mainly British style beers) on tap.
It is located a short walk from the louder, youngster style bars of íThe Rocksí and well worth finding.
I liked the list of names on the wall. Every person who arrived on the very first flotilla bringing convicts to Oz are on the lists. The lists are by ship, it just sends you back to the birth of a nation, it made me think a bit.

Beautiful place in the Rocks, the place to be for nice old pubs. Good ambiance, the service is performed by some nice young waitresses. Decent selection of 5 of their own beers on tap. I didnít take the food, but it looked pretty decent. At least better than bangers and mash....

Very well located, 4min walk from the main tourist strip in the Rocks. Beautifully presented pub with sandstone walls and an almost oily shearing shed floor. Competant staff, mixed crowd, no dickheads. Nice food on the bar and restaurant selections. 7 house brews on tap plus 5 more commercial offerings.
