“Drunk craic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Been in Sydney now 3 months, been drunk in the place every weekend, good music, full of drunk people basically, but sure it's all in the craic!

Foods cheap enough as well! Chicken cirrus good, and it's good to get a Guinness!


Only thing tho the bar downstairs smelled of urine, we decided to move upstairs to eat! A few of the barmaids aren't the friendliest'

“Great if this is your thing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Does what it says on the tin, Irish beer, a few Irish barmaids. Have bands on sometimes which helps the atmosphere. Mostly a backpacker or young local crowd. Cheapish drinks, sticky floors and loud music and drunken dancing. Make up your mind if you like this....:-)

“A Fun Place To Be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We visited here twice for a meal - it's real good value for money Rump Steak & Chips + drink $6.95 and delicious. If you can visit on a Wednesday they have the drag queen karaoke it's hilarious! with a jug of beer for $7

“Good food, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Tried this place while still suffering from jetlag, on our second and final night in Sydney at the start of a whirlwind trip around Australia. The pub area downstairs was very noisy and, since we were just looking for a quick yet wholesome meal, were about to give it a miss. But a customer drinking his beer on the porch directed us to the dining area upstairs (still with a pub atmosphere), which was much quieter. Good pub-meals. Reasonable service, tasty pies, about the best "value for money" dinner we had during our entire Australian holiday. By European standards, restaurants seem to be pretty expensive in Australia, or at least they are in touristy areas....
