One of Sydney’s best pubs. Great building, decent beer (served in pints), good food, and it usually has a bit of buzz about it. The negatives are that seats can be scarce and the bar crowded, and the beers are competent, rather than inspired.
Very very busy pub in The Rocks. Twice visited (midday Saturday, 1PM Friday) twice no seating inside. Their beers are nice but the scrum of suits having long lunches tests the patience of staff and beer aficionados alike. Perhaps try on a Tuesday (about 11.30 AM).
Quaint little English style pub with 6 house beers on tap. You can do a flight of 4 for $16, which is typical for the city. Service was decent and the beer quality was rather boring but competent. Not a necessary stop, but it’s all around decent experience.
Visited on Sunday 20th March 2016. Large old brewpub in the Rocks. It’s a solid old stone building. Has a central bar with seating all around plus a bistro upstairs. 7 of their own beers on. Prices not too bad. Beers were decent enough quality. Place was packed and couldn’t get a seat so left after a quick drink. Will visit again as I like the place.
Visited both Oct -12 and Oct -15. Yet another one of the places mentioned when talking about Sydney’s oldest hotel/pub. Home of the Three Sheets that many love, but if only having one I can recommend Victory Bitter if available. Now serves sample paddles! Latest visit had late lunch, food was good.
Latest visit on Friday October 9, 2015. Arrived shortly after regular lunch hours. Shared 2 sampled paddles and a beef nachos with my brother. Yes, now they have paddles! Quite a bit of people, we did manage to get a table though. Nice place, friendly staff.
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.
on holiday with my girlfriend we arrive little late when we were walking wrong a nice bar with a fun atmosphere a beautiful historic building they own 6 beers on tap and a few other she have tasters what I like but outside their own brews the beer list was not really special but certainly worth something to drink
When we visited, the server at the bar went out of her way to get me a taste of one of their flagship beers that had just run out. Did not stay at the hotel as did not realize they had one. Very nice classic building with great interior decor.
We visited this brewpub on 13.2.2015. Located in a quite nice area of Sydney - The Rocks. Very nice old building, claims to be the oldest hotel in Sydney. Inside very British, typical Pub style. They brew around 7 beers (4 pale and 3 dark ones). The small brew house is in the back room. We had only the pale ales, they are all light but absolutely clean and ok. For dinner we had Pizza, the only food they served this day, ok but small and very expensive.
