While nothing on the menu is particularly fancy, everything that we had was good and the service was excellent. I would recommend looking at the evenings specials. I hade shepards pie for $15 which came with my choice of beer or wine. A great deal!

Wanted to drink a good beer and found this venue serving Guinness. Good. During our stay we met a couple of interesting people. Perfect day.

I need not say more. I pulled up a stool, grabbed a pint of Guinness and some bangers and mash. It's exactly what it advertises. Great history, friendly staff.

This is an old Irish pub with accommodations. We came here for a drink after a walk at The Rocks. Quite busy, plenty of people sit outside. Nice waiter. I think they have band performance in the evening.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
