looks cool, does its job and makes you entertained, easy access on foot from Rocks etc. Me myself go there with friends at least once a year, out of season, say - on MardiGrass day when whole world goes to Oxford street. Live music, good beer, a few foods... really nice place to become a part in Australian and Sydney... More

Somewhere in a tourist guide I read about this pub and when we encountered it by accident on a hot Sydney afternoon we were ever so happy to pay a visit. Good selection of craft beers on tap and an authentic, relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. A nice option for the fellow thirsty who'd like to spend a lazy afternoon sipping... More

We had been recommended to have night out for the live music at the Hero of Waterloo, a quaint old pub in Millers Point, just up behind The Rocks. What a night! The band was Green Jam playing a mix of Irish and contemporary music. The band has a core of regular members, with other musicians joining in according to... More

We enjoyed ourselves at this pub on Saturday night for our friends 30th. The only let down was that they stopped serving food in the bar because they were too busy... So my wife and I had to leave the group so we could go get some food as they had already eaten before it got too busy... Apart from... More

Claiming to be the oldest hotel in Australia, we went purely for beer. This public house has a micro brewery with all beer being brewed on site, sitting at the bar in this ancient lime stone building you can see the vats in the room at the back. Beers such as 3 sheets, Nelson's Blood, and Victory all had to... More

We had an amazing time here...awesome crowd! Great atmosphere! Excellent band covering classics! Just one thing-this bar is in a residential district so they close early..at least on Sunday night-they stopped serving at 1030! Overall, one of the best bars Ive seen since Ive been here!

Went this pub on a Tuesday night looking for a meal on the way to a show. We ordered a salad and a chicken burger. It was a quiet night, yet half an hour later we were still waiting. We were told the food was coming....but it never did so we had to leave or be locked out of the... More

Called in to the Hero of Waterloo for some beers and jazz on Sunday afternoon. Small but appreciative audience, pleasant ambiance, good jazz. Well worth a visit
