Very European in feel and look. In a way small and cramped though. Very little parking in the area and if you want to be there over an hour a train is your best option. Service is good but nothing over the top or makes itself stand out. Beer selection is crap compared to Melbourne location. gets better stuff. Pricing can be good to way overpriced. Value wise if you live in the area it is a godsend. If you are on the other side of the bridge that is another matter. Not nearly as good as the Wheatsheaf in Adelaide.

In line with expectations which, admittedly, were high. Fitout compared to Melbourne is same but different. Very good use of dark wood panelling but the classic inner city pub roots canít be denied complete with art deco tiling and wall bench bars. Range very good and in line with Melbourne. Pricing in line with bad Aust craft pub premium pricing. Must be Sydís best venue? Service soldid without being OS. Plus they play great alt county like Wilco and Golden Smog!

TimE has the best thoughts here on this bar. Rough and ready place, though no rough types there. Decor is old and a bit haphazard. Feels a bit unclean. 2 levels the real draw is the excellent range of beers they get here. Service was friendly and prices are decent - though bottles are pretty over the top (though this is average in Australia). Good place but the Wheatsheaf is still the quintessential craft bar I have visited in Australia in terms of overall experience.

Rotating taps with some great beers from Oz, NZ, and international guest beers. Friendly staff who know their beer. Edit: The rooftop bar is now open, and it just makes this place even better!!!

Awesome bar. Huge rotation of unique beers, a perfect place if you want to taste beers. Only problem is the beers are so rare you often never taste them again.

Love the interior, awesome building. The vibe and crowd isnít quite the equal of its bigger Melbourne brother (too many people I asked in there what they were drinking responded "I donít know"), but itís hard to make any complaints when you have 20 taps on offer.

Decent place, though the atmosphere feels a bit faux and the staff are amongst the least bright Iíve come across in any bar - though they do have rudimentary knowledge of beer and were somewhat friendly. Beyond that, this place is brilliant. Selection of rotating Oz brews - though not a large portion of the entire taplist - was spot on and served in good condition and temperature. Prices seemed reasonable. Food was excellent (I enjoyed a Salami Pizza). Menu is informative and explains about beer styles and food indicates what beer goes with which food. Very good presentation for attracting people to try craft beer. Did not having anything from bottles, but list seemed impressive. A must for any out of town visitor to Sydney. Also it should be mentioned, I told the bar staff they need to put operating hours on thier website. They said they will get on this. I am not holding my breath. Until then, just guess!

Visited here a few times recently, and was quite impressed. 20 taps, almost all of which were micros, and 3 of which were from a featured aussie brewer (Moo Brew when I was there). For A$13 you could get 5 samples of the tap beers, which is also nice. Bottle selection was pretty good with a number of Belgian offerings, even if they were kind of spendy. Staff was very friendly, and seemed to know some about the beer. Very cool feel to the place, even if the neighborhood was so-so. Definitely worth stopping at if in Sydney.
