A very ’English’ looking brewpub. The food is ok, prices are rather high. Beer is amongst the best I had in australia (this is not really saying much) . In particular the Doubkle Nelson is one fine DIPA. Nice!

Lovely traditional old school pub with a warm convivial atmosphere, efficient service from very busy bar staff and a decent selection of taps with prices per pint more favourable than some other local competitors competing for the ’craft’ dollar.

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 ’The Rocks’ 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.

We stayed in their hotel above, not far to stagger at all after trying their impressive collection of beers.

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 didn’t get to try it. Definitely worth stopping in to try their beers on tap since in bottle form they don’t hold up so well. The rye ale was pretty delicious but I’d 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.

Visited with a mate on a wet cold Saturday and they had the log fire roaring. Had the pleasure of meeting Damon the brewer and enjoyed having a beer with him and his mate Jason who shared a few bottles of his under the bar stash with us. Damon even gave us a pre-release sample of Broadside and then accompanied us to Harts Pub for a few more beers.

Been meaning to get here for a while, finally made it for a Sunday lunch while in the area. Beer selection was impressive - 6 if their own brews supplemented by a couple of extras, including a special guest tap. Bottle selection looked pretty good too, although it will be a couple of visits before I’ll need to delve into the fridge. Had the Quayle Ale to start. A summer ale, it served as a great thirst quencher after the walk up from the harbour. It was clean and crisp without being bland, and can imagine it being very The Old Admiral I followed it up with took a bit of adjusting too, although this task was made easier by my meal choice, a nice pie with mash and mushy peas. It showed itself to have a strong, complex malty character, however it was hard to detect the advertises hoppy bitterness. My only quibble over all was the service - seemed focused on recognised locals rather than new faces like myself. Despite this, it was still an overwhelmingly positive experience, one which I’ll be keen repeat soon.
