Description: The Toxteth Hotel, affectionately named the 'Tocky' by its patrons, is a great local pub on the corner of the vibrant Glebe Point Road and Ferry Road. The Tocky has an extensive food menu with enticing daily specials including the popular $10 lunch menu on Monday - Friday. The Toxteth also boasts three great areas in which to host your next function. The Toxteth offer wide-ranging flexible canape & set menu options to suit all tastes and budgets. Whether it is a birthday party, product launch or corporate lunch, They tailor each event to suit your needs. The upstairs Tate gallery is the Toxteth's very own art space that transforms into the perfect place for any function or event. With the capacity to hold 120 people (80 if seated), this exposed brick, warehouse style space offers its own private bar and picturesque views of the city. The sun drenched Yard Bar is easily the most popular space in the venue. With its mismatched furniture and vibrant island bar it offers a funky, spacious al fresco sanctuary for both open air drinking & dining. The Fireplace room is super cosy in winter with a roaring fire yet with the sliding windows it becomes open and airy in the warmer months. It's definitely worth checking out this friendly local watering hole!

The Toxteth is a corner pub that used to cater for a hard-drinking male clientele but has now been modernised. So modernised it even has an upstairs art gallery, the Tate. Walk in through the old-style bar and past the toilets and you find yourself in a big, square indoor-outdoor area for dining and drinking at tables. It's a family-friendly... More

Went here for a work function. Reserved a table out doors in the beer garden, nice area. You can see into the kitchen through a window from there as well. Staff are friendly enough and the food is actually really good!

This was the first time I went to Glebe, which is why I like visiting pubs because I end up visiting places that people would normally not visit and discovering little oddities that are off the main tourist track. This is a nice traditional English style pub whose food is not too badly priced (though I heard a couple complain... More

You could always find me at the Tox on a quiz night. We were usually about 8 people attending the quiz. The pub is clean and has a fun atmosphere. The prices are average for Sydney.

theres nothing outstanding about the Toxteth but it is a good pub which serves some good pub food although i reckon its just a tad expensive compared to other pubs like the Forest Lodge Hotel nearby

Recently spent Monday & Tuesday nights at the Toxteth Hotel with friends. Trivia nights are on both nights from 730pm and had a ball. Food is excellent and had the $12 specials both nights. Excellent atmosphere with friendly staff. Will be going back again if back in Sydney.

I was pleasantly surprised when I finally came here the pub is very clean and good atmosphere. Went there to have a drink and join in the Thursday pool game and will definitely come here more often. They have a different food on special each day and can't wait to go on those days. They have a open smoking area... More

Took a fair walk from Darling Harbour to find, but I tracked the Toxteth Hotel down from an online recommendation to try their Big Dog Challenge. A massive footlong bratwurst hotdog with mustard, pickles and a plate of wedges in 30mins. Lets just say afterwards I was grateful for that long. It WAS a beautiful hotdog though, and a good...

At the end of my street the Toxeth Hotel is a good local when you need a seriously good beef and guinness pie. Funky Brit Pop interior, cool bar with a trendy beer garden. Well done.
