Hanging out with the trendy set

8 of us dropped in for a quick beverage before dinner on Friday night. Service was fast and friendly. We had a problem with our Margarita's. The first was served in an old fashioned glass with ice cubes. It wasn't great. The second one was closer to the traditional one that you would expect. This... read more

Unlike other Merivale locations, I was quite disappointed with the menu. We were 3 on a lovely autumn day and not overly hungry. The menu didn't seem to match the pub and the meals appealed to none of us. We ended up sharing some nibbles. The Sangria was excellent and the staff were efficient and friendly. The beer garden is... More

Enjoyed my night here with old friends. The outdoor bar seating area is full of cool people enjoying a sunny Sydney evening. We used the bar near the front door as it was much quicker than the one in the middle of the pub/restaurant. I only found loos downstairs, and they were super swanky, actually thought they were one of... More

For a place that cost millions to renovate you'd honk they would do something about the disgusting upstairs toilets they smell gross, been to the upstairs venue 6 times and nothing had improved. Downstairs food is good, service is great the only other issue apart from stinky loos is the meat head security guards who ask too many questions. Great... More

I came here for a work function. It took a while to be served at the bar since it was a busy Friday night and the food was so-so (pizza and pasta). I am curious about the rest of their menu items though. They have a decent selection of drinks and their apple cider (on tap) was great. I'd probably... More

After two years going to Beresford on Sundays evening/night to have a few drinks with my friends I realised that since two Sundays ago you have to pay $20 fee if you want to go Upstairs. That is sucks. Now they are performing 3 shows, at 8pm, 10pm and 12 pm. I'm really dissapointed with that decission. Now everybody is... More

Went here with the girls for some bubbly and some lunch. I had the Wagyu steak and a friend had the salmon. We started with a shared dish of pasta. The food was tasty - not super-generous in size - but what you would expect from a "see and be seen" kind of place like the Beresford. The beer garden... More

The Beresford is definitely THE place to be on a sunday night in Sydney. Enjoy great music, stay at the bar or go to Level 1 for a great dancefloor!
