Good pies and fish and chips. And by the way they brew their own beers. Good local crowd and friendly bar keeps. Cool location and great way to get a warm hearty lunch on a cold rainy Sydney day.

This is the most 'English' of places we visited in Sydney. There is a great range of ales to choose from and a fairly cheap bar food menu. The ales are good for over in Australia and my personal favourite was 3 sheets. Hoppy with a citrus flavour that reminded me of ales back home. Quayle ale is not bad,... More

So full of life and always full of people but worth a visit. Beers are cold and some interesting history on display.

This is Sydney's oldest hotel and they have a great brewery and pub. It has a cozy atmosphere with plenty of beer choices.

recommended by a local walking guide this pub turned out to be a real gem. Great food (we went to the upstairs restaurant), great service and the three sheets beer was terrific. Would recommend this place to anyone. Plenty of bar food being served downstairs as well and it all looked good - next time we'll try that if we... More

A pint and a historical trip into Sydney's past. Had s pint of Three Sheets, a beer form their own brewery. An historic pub stepped in history. Loved the atmosphere. Well worth a walk and a drink if you are in The Rocks

Excellent old-school pub which brews it owns beers. Great beers on tap. One of the nicer parts of Sydney too, around the Rocks. Its nice to do a pub crawl around all the old school pubs in the area.

Saturday lunch and the place was full. We got the last table. The food was above average pub food. I had the pie and mash. My friend had the boccocini pizza which looked fabulous. The soup was good too. Atmosphere was convivial.
