Nicely Renovated pub

Stopped by mid way through the 7s rugby - 20 minute walk from Allianz and we needed a break. Nice renovation - especially the garden out back. Decent beers - only ate snacks which were good...

Itis a pleasant spot to eat at non crowded times - we thought for the food served it was pricy - nice food however it is pub food - a reasonably selection. There did not appear to be table service for wine and we went to the bar

Shady outdoor garden seating in enclosed courtyard with built-in BBQ, and spacious indoor areas with lots of seating and well-spaced tables. Several well-stocked bars. Reasonable variety for choice of meals and snacks. A great spot for a long lunch/drinks with friends/family in Surry Hills area.

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...

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
