Been here many times but the stewards on the doors attitude has to change. Shocking service and they need a personality check.

This a an old pub in a great location. We’ve been here before and kicked off our return to Sydney with fish and chips at The Orient. It was a bit underwhelming. The fish was over cooked and tough, the salad limp and pre-dressed —...More

Pretty decent pub, nothing to write home about but good. OK service and decent beer selection. Cocktails left a little to be desired. Use more ice, lol!! Probably not rushing back but good. Great location on George St in the Rocks
