Visited this place as our first stop for Pub Hopping. Its a bit small, but the staff is great. The food is also among the best.

This place is one of our go-to's whenever we are in Sydney. Great location, atmosphere is always good, and the live music is excellent - this is what drew us in the first time when we were walking past looking for a place to have a drink. We went in for 1 and stayed late and became repeat offenders! The... More

I've visited this pub a number of times now and its never disappointing. The staff are always friendly and a pleasure to have a chat to. The drinks are reasonably priced and the food is delicious. Will always return and recommend this spot

We've been coming to this great pub for many years on our visits to Sydney and have always loved the atmosphere. The prices are very competitive with other pubs in the area but the wine prices are particularly attractive. Add all this to excellent live music and a guaranteed great night is assured. Good staff, friendly and efficient. The food... More

This was one of the first pubs we visited in The Rocks. It had a nice charm and the bartenders (male and female) were friendly and attentive. The food was very good (bar food) and we were enjoying the atmosphere. Unfortunately, our visit here was cut short when a rude, local man began talking to us repeating racial slurs. This... More

We stopped at the oldest pub in Sydney for what we thought was a quick drink. 3 hours later we were still singing away. They have great cover artist singing all the time. Get there early because it's a bit small. The drinks were vary cheap and the staff was friendly.

Yeah yeah yeah ... Great pub. Great atmosphere. Great place for NYE. Combo of regulars and backpackers. Made for a fun evening. But ... ? What's happened to Sydney? How the mighty have fallen! I got asked by the nervous, agitated proprietor whether I had had too much to drink. Not good enough to just ask in the pub -... More

Sydney's oldest pub located in the historic rocks area in sight of the harbor bridge. We popped in for a spot of lunch on a Tuesday. The city was buzzing for the big New Year's Eve celebration but we got a table right away (by the way drinks downstairs in the pub, walk up the stairs on the side for... More

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.
