The Bonnie Prince is one of the best spots to eat in Sydney from a taste and value perspective. Insofar as pub fare is concerned, it's undefeated in the community. Portions are on the big side, but the food is prepared well and full of flavour. While I enjoy many of the items they make a killer liver and onions... More

We had fish and chips and the turkey dinner. It was a struggle to eat all the food as the portions were quite large. The french fries were awesome, but the fish and the turkey were just ok.

I am up from Florida visiting my brother. His wife was meeting some extended family here for dinner and asked if I wanted to come along with my children. I was going to pass but then she told me that they had poutine, which you can only find in Canada. Also, she said the fish and chips there were really... More

We took a team for a meal after our game. The service was excellent. They got us in and out pretty quickly. The only strange thing was that you had to pay a deposit beforehand of $5 a person. I thought this was strange and had not encountered this in Halifax. The portions are massive - think American chains. Everyone... More

Service was excellent. My husband had a hot turkey sandwich, which he thoroughly enjoyed (he tends to be fussy); and my brother and I had fish and chips, one of the best, I've had anywhere in a long time. The servings were large as well.

Visited the Bonnie because my wife and I had a craving for Nachos. We entered and the place was very clean with a nice atmosphere. While we waited to be seated we saw the dessert cooler and OMG all the cakes and pies looked amazing. Our server was awesome and made some recommendations however my wife and I ordered large...
