The Lord nelson is a very popular place. Great beers - amazing staff and old worlde charm. I stayed in the accommodation too and that was very good quality. The brasserie restaurant is fantastic with the best food ever.

Came here during a leisurely wander around the Rocks. The in-house brewed ales are certainly worth a try. I recommend the Nelson's Blood porter as well as the 3 Sheets beer. The place is something of an institution in Sydney and with just cause!

Situated near Observatory Hill and the Rocks this pub makes a great start to a scenic pub crawl through the better part of Sydney. It's a beautiful sandstone building, lively crowd and tasty beer on tap. Try the Three Sheets pale ale with the bread plate.

Large busy pub, serving their excellent ales, brewed on the premises. The bar food menu is excellent and of excellent value. The staff very friendly. A must if you stay in Sydney and enjoy good beer.
