Nary a day goes by that I don't miss the Rocks neighborhood or this great pub (or "hotel" as they often say Down Under). Every beer is fabulous, the people are incredible (of course they are, they're Aussies) and the menu is classic . . . my life is now a never-ending search for the Poughman's Lunch!

Never ate here, but the selection of beers is just fabulous. Everyone has a very distinctly different taste. Bar staff are very informative and helpful when makinf your choice.

Great location at the end of The Rocks. Steeped in nostalgia, the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Try their great ales - a good place to catch up with friends and get away from the crowds.

The Lord Nelson is definitely a part of Sydney's history and worth going there for a 'pint'. The Lord Nelson make their own boutique brews and my favourite there is the three sheets pale ale and if you are hungry have it one of the Lord Nelson's pies.... It is only a small pub but always seems to be busy... More

I just loved visiting this pub on a recent trip to Sydney. First time was just for a drink, then for a meal. I enjoyed both. The pub is full of atmosphere and has a general great vibe.

Good service The bar on the ground floor was packed! But the restaurant upstairs was not. Even on a Thursday night it was pretty full so I'll recommend making reservations. Wide selection of beers, it won't disappoint. I'm not really a beer person but I enjoyed what I had. The food! Oh man! Best!! We had something from the special... More

I went here with some work colleagues for a dinner. I have been here several times before but tried again it as it met the needs of my companions. That is not too expensive, reasonable food, reasonable wines and somewhere you can talk. We had a selection of meals between us and everybody was happy. The service was good and... More

Absolutely love the beer. Loved every one that I tried. And the drinks are very reasonably priced. Make a pub crawl out of this place and neighboring historic bars to really enjoy the night.

This is one of my favourite spots in Sydney. Pub has great atmosphere which means it's always busy. I am a beer drinker normally but tried cider this time. Best cider I have ever had and made themselves on site. Had pizza and cauliflower soup. Delicious.

We had a delicious steak dinner with the seasonal beers. I'd recommend tasting the seasonal beers before ordering one because tastes really vary. Nice waiting staff and fun location. Very expensive, though.
