Big bar and seating area. Lots of dark wood, English pub feel. Good and fast service. Nothing special on tap but they had a nice bottle selection. Good prices, the lowest I found while in Australia.

Visited on Junly 16, 2013.
Close to Harts Pub, popped in for one beer only.
Didn’t see any bouncers at all.
Didn’t go upstairs.
Pretty big place. Nice service. Crap music playing. Not a huge or all that interesting draught selection, but I did find one beer I hadn’t rated before. Apparently many bottles available, but I didn’t stick around to check them out.
If I were cose I’d rather just go to Harts instead.

Could be a great place if they lose the loud crappy music, improved their tap selection by adding more craft beer and got rid of the ridiculous dickhead bouncers....

Good ol’ Jacksons. I’m afraid to say I’ve spent too many nights there. Ambiance varies depending on the night but it’s mostly nightclubish. I gave the service a low rating because of the security guards. Like many places in Sydney, they are dickheads. Prices are moderate considering the location and a game of pool with the glass roof on the top floor is pretty cool. Usually end up there if we’re out of ideas.

Visited once or twice during RWC ’03 and a couple of times when I was working in Nth Sydney in ’09. Fairly good atmosphere which can be easily spoilt by the crowd or the staff, depending on the night. Selection is limited, with some of the usuals served in a pretty average fashion (respect to the gent below who polished off >200 pints of their very ordinary Guinness). Food is pub fare, prices are high which one must expect for the area. Not a fan after a few attempts to be one (great location, good interior, nice outside seating area), I’d recommend it only to tourists in dire straits - have a pint and move on. Better to walk up the street to Fortune of War.

Around a dozen taps featuring boring mainstream lagers, and a few bottles in the fridge but overall nothing exciting here.

The good thing - a large range of bottled beer. Other than that - big, very noisy (loud music), often very crowded, over-zealous bouncers, beers on tap not terribly interesting, clientèle generally not there for the beer. It’s also in the tourist area between the Rocks and Circular Quay - which makes it easy to find.
