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.
Well-known old brewpub and hotel. Rather spartan interior for such a venerable establishment. Own beers are ok and of various styles, nice if you need a break from IPA. Fine place for a pit stop if you’re in the area, but nothing special.
The place is rather nice, to bad the beers isnt. Old building holding an english style pub. Big bar in the middle of the room, good number of seating inside and on the walkway. Rather crowded on a saturday night. About 10 beers on tap, some bottles to. A flight of 4 beers is avaible for 15 dollars.. Beer quality is pretty poor to average, thin, sourish, butterish. Alright service. I dont see myself coming back here.
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
