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.

Was a nice place to stop by and grab a couple of pints while in Sydney. Good location in the Rocks, we went early but it did get a little crowded. Food looked good, but I didn’t get a chance to try it. Good service. Solid brews.

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.

My favourite pub, in the Historic Rocks area of Sydney, a magnificent old sandstone building, home to some magnificent beers brewed on the premises. Receommend the Three Sheets

This is without doubt the best pub I have been to in 33 years in Australia! The ambience is good, the food good and wholesome without being ’yuppy’ and the beers brewed on site are all very good (particularly Trafalgar Bitter). We were there on a Friday evening and the place was busy but the crowd well behaved. There was an abundance of capable bar staff too. Great pub!

Lovely old sandstone building in a very historical part of Sydney. Te beers seem to have improved of late, i remember going a few years ago and the beers being average at best. Unfortunately at times this place is over run with suits, and yuppy types. Definitely worth a visit when in Sydney.
