Great selection of beers and spirits. Better pricing than other pubs nearby. Comfortable pub atmosphere. Evidently the oldest pub in Sydney. The bathrooms were clean. I may go again tonight after our dinner to finish my Sydney trip with a couple nice beers.

This is a good boozer which was always busy when I went. I didn't eat or get to the music but just had a beer (not the best craft brewery selection) but a great atmosphere. There is another bar upstairs.

Picked this place on a whim & it turned out to be a great decision! Food was fantastic & super grateful to the friendly waiter (forgot his name, sorry!!) who made my first lunch in Sydney city a little less lonely.

First night in the rocks and this place was recommended. Dan Sharkey was live - and he got the place swinging BIG time. Relaxed atmosphere - super staff and a nice place to spend the evening.

I had a beer today at the Fortune of War and it is a clean, well kept place. Especially since the building has been there since1828. Good local beers with cold drafts. They have live music throughout the day. Don't miss while in The Rock.

I was on a night out in the rocks with a group of friends for a birthday. The birthday boy wanted to go to fortune of war as it was his favourite pub in the rocks. Before we even got to the door (mind you it was only about 7pm), the security guard told us we were all too drunk... More
