We were trying to walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and stumbled across this place. Very attractive bartender, but nonetheless teh beer was good. Service was good too. A nice break from all the walking. The Rocks is the must see area of Sydney for good beer and brew pubs!

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.

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.

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.

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

Nice pub, good atmosphere and always a good range of beers mostly with an English bent (which are served too cold). I usually drop in for a few if I’m in Sydney - never noticed the food menu, been too busy quaffing down pints.

Nice place with great beers but a wee bit too expansive.

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.
