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. Didnít try the food.

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.

Visited on Sunday 20th March 2016. Large old brewpub in the Rocks. Itís a solid old stone building. Has a central bar with seating all around plus a bistro upstairs. 7 of their own beers on. Prices not too bad. Beers were decent enough quality. Place was packed and couldnít get a seat so left after a quick drink. Will visit again as I like the place.

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.

Quaint little English style pub with 6 house beers on tap. You can do a flight of 4 for $16, which is typical for the city. Service was decent and the beer quality was rather boring but competent. Not a necessary stop, but itís all around decent experience.

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.

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.

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.
