Lovely old pub, with great young vibe in the bar, yet beautiful heritage style rooms. Even the share bathrooms are pretty & quaint, sharing not a prob when there are only a few guest rooms. Great staff who go out of their way to look after you.

Visited Sydney with friends and we came across this place. WOW!! This pub is situated in the Rocks which is the hip n trendy end of Sydney. The food is amazing especially the kangaroo pizza! Great value for money, super friendly staff even the other customers were so friendly. If anyone is visiting Sydney it's a must you go here.

An excellent choice for a relaxed evening meal. Service at the bar was very good , cheerful and informative of food. The food was tasty and filling. Not gourmet cuisine, but it wasn't meant to be. The beer and wine went down well and overall the cost was reasonable. For a group of 5 it was an excellent evening.

I wanted to try kangaroo before leaving Australia in three days and the quick "where to eat kangaroo in Sydney" Google search returned me several links that all mentioned this place. I thus went to TAHH but ended up leaving wondering what the fuss was all about. The service was average at best, the pizza extremely small for its price,... More

A real interesting pub very popular with local residents and tourists alike. Always a great selection of craft beer and the choice keeps changing. The pizza choice is also different with a choice of kangaroo or emu pizza as well as crocodile. The beer is the star here.

A great place to stop for a weekend lunch while cruising The Rocks (and avoiding some of the pricier options). Truly well preserved old world charm, great outdoor seating with heaters, and a fine selection of tap beers, many craft breweries. LOVED the barkeep letting me try a sip of some weird, wonderful beer: Lightening Bolt i think... a truly... More

Loved all the unusual meats you can find on their menu it's not too prices pretty average for the area and it's one of the oldest so we hear. Loads of great beers too. We loved the alligator pizza. It's a bit of a hike up to the rocks so if there is anyone with mobility issues then get a... More

A good range beers on tap and plenty of food options. Totally inattentive and uninterested staff who care more about chatting amongst themselves than serving the customers that keep thwlem employed. Had the duck pizza. The topping was dry and the pizza base was dry. First and hopefully the last time i have a cheese less pizza. Terrible. No serviette... More

Lots of character. Good food - we had the kangaroo burgers. Also lots of beer on tap. 25 on tap plus another 75 in bottle - all Australian. Try getting a paddle (flight of 5 beers to try a bunch). Service a little slow, but the staff is nice if you take a minute to talk to them. Also this... More

For my brief (2 night) flying visit to Sydney I had a list of requirements which included easy access to trains, ferries and busses, close to bars, value for money and definitely not a soulless hotel. The Australian filled the requirements completely. Arriving at 10pm on a Friday the staff found time for a smile, a friendly greeting and escorting... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
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 weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
