Everything you need in a great aussie neighbourhood pub. . Cute little old bar and great outdoor space. Kitchen has a good menu service friendly. Find this little treasure for a beer.

The Welcome is, I think, unique. It combines a great old Irish/English pub with a classic bar including chook raffles and Trivia nights with right next to the bar a really top "Gastro Pub" restaurant with great food and friendly service. One of our favourite places to eat not only in Sydney but anywhere We love it

Given this pub won 2 awards from TimeOut Sydney we thought we should give it a try. Unfortunately, I found some plastic from a broken food container in my gnocchi. They refunded my meal, and took my email address promising they would be in touch. However, it has been several weeks and I've heard nothing. I understand that mistakes happen,... More

We nearly didn't go due to some recent negative views but having now been, feel that some previous reviewers just don't like change. We experienced excellent food and attentive service in the restaurant area and had a wide range of craft beers to choose from in the bar area.

I used to love this place. Great food and a great pint of Guinness. It was the perfect "local". But new owners have changed the feel and Guinness has been replaced with $9 a schooner craft beer. It is a shame...Goodbye Welcome. At least we have our memories...

Have been to The Welcome a couple of times in the past and loved the comfort Irish themed food. Went today with the expectation of some bangers and mash or rissoles and found the menu totally different. Closest item was sausage with polenta :-( Food was ok interior has lost its charm. Probably won't be coming back.

It pains me to say, but I don't like the Welcome any more. I have been an on and off regular at this pub and restuarant for nearly 20 years. We actually remember when the current dining room was created and we used to live 200 metres away. It was my favourite peninsula pub and i kept going back even... More

This is a hard review to write. On one hand I've read the reviews and can understand some of the difficulties here in not really feeling this restaurant fits it's surroundings, but in fairness based on our experience it was a 'jolly good night'. The service couldn't have been faulted and the food was a cut above pub fare. The... More

Will never go back and I live 40m from this place. Very disappointed given it was quiet especially for a Friday night.

We were surprised to see some of the recent reviews for our experience was of a very friendly bar with caring staff and very good food. It wasn't the cheapest in town but all plates were completely empty when we finished and nothing had to be cut off our steaks - all the meat was lean. We will certainly return... More
