The Beresford has a great outdoors area and lots of space indoors too so whatever the weather, a great location. There's a lot of bars so not a long wait to get served which always help. Will definitely go back

One the best bar in Surry Hills to meet people from everywhere. Nice place with a beautiful courtyard. And the happy hours are pretty late compared with most of other bars in Sydney (until 8 pm) ! The food is not fantastic but ok. I recommend the Red Housewine, a very good Shiraz!

I've been there with 2 friends. They make a very good pizza, even the choice is a bit short. I also had the burger and it really disappointed me: small and pricey. Good service

A really nice, old fashioned Sydney pub with a modern feel inside. Right in the heart of Surry Hills so away from a lot of the tourists with a good local vibe. Sunday's are great, with music and BBQ food. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon

three of us went here for lunch. the menu was average pub food low on flavour and poorly presented. the staff looked bored and just hung together talking and not doing much. the whole atmosphere was just like they were waiting for something to happen. there are plenty of other pubs in the area with better, cheaper food and way...

Very busy venue and very popular, will make you any mock tail you desire, outdoor smoking area at the rear courtyard, even though renovated has maintenance its Art Deco style, great place for a catch up.

Food is good, atmosphere also, but pricey. Had the pizza which was a little watery, but dough was wonderful and pizza had a nice rustic feel. The calamari, or side salads weren't up to scratch for the price. The crispy salmon perfectly cooked , tasty working well with the radicchio and orange. Worth a visit but better value elsewhere

I've been a regular at The Beresford for many years and a local for four, dining there at least once per week, if not twice. Over the past 12 months Management has changed, along with, it seems, the entire ethos of what made The Beresford a great place to go. The menu and its resulting food, if you can call... More

This was one of the highlights of my weekend out. A great hotel, large, classy, busy and a great spot for people watching and meeting. A large formal bar greets you as you enter this place, down behind this a dining area (with a separate bar) and out the back an awesome courtyard that was full with people having a... More
