Decent old-style tavern

We chose this as a meeting point prior to heading to the SFS as it was nearby and handy. Good choice! It is a bit of a warren inside with lots of nooks and crannies, but the... read more

I called in here on Sunday night with a few mates. The place was very busy especially upstairs on the balcony. We only stayed for a few drinks due to the VERY Intoxicated patrons and Extremely slow and very expensive bar service with attitude. I was very dissapointed with this venue and was happy to move on. Overrated in my... More

So happy that this place is finally doing roast dinners. They are amazing!! Proper, traditional roasts and plenty of it. Will be going back regularly on a Sunday for one. Great pub too, comfortable and a relaxed vibe on a Sunday.

Good to hang out on any day or night of the week. Best if you can get a seat outside or on the balcony even tho the internal courtyard is also not too shabby. Great for drinks but the food is also of very high standard when compared to other pubs in the area.

Come here for the happy hour by all means but don't bother otherwise, the drinks are WAY overpriced. Tuesdays are good because you get two for one meals ... but again, that special loses it's glimmer when your paying $40 for 4 beers. There are better places to drink in Surry Hills for far less $$, don't waste your hard... More

Good spot for playing pool, although it's right next to the smoking area and I left stinking of smoke. Table is quite slow too. Good pub.

The Clock hotel is a very cosy/chic pub/restaurant. Great choice of wines and amazing food! A fabulous place to meet up with friends near the city centre of Sydney.

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.
