Great spot

Went here with my wife recently - mostly because it's close to my office. However, a great spot. It was a Thursday evening and place was heaving. Beer cold and snacks good - highly recommended.

Located on the top floor of this landmark Pub, the Republic dining room is a comfortable relaxed (if sometimes slightly noisy), lunch venue. The food is of an extremely high quality with just the right number of options for both Entree and Main Courses.

Although they had a lunch rush and burnt my burger :( it was still a great stop to rest up and grab a bite to eat and a beer and watch the rush of people pass by. Odd shaped corner building caught our attention to the place. Was worth stopping and checking it out.

Flat head and chips....came with a plate full of thin cut re-cooked chips and over cooked greasy flathead....nothing green in sight....only redeeming feature the tartar... More

Been here multiple times. Service is always very good, quick, friendly and proficient. The Veal Cutlet on the bone is a winner, and a must try.

My Husband and I wandered in here in November of 2012 and I have been meaning to write this review ever since then. We are from Connecticut. We were passing through (in Sydney for just a day) and wanted a really special lunch. I had no clue where to go, so I asked God to help us find a great... More
