I was here last night for my friends going away party. We lined up to go into the nightclub (45 min wait) and the bouncer apparently heard my friend swear at him - she didn't- when we asked him what he thought he heard - he couldn't answer- we were referred to the British manager who spoke to us like...

I came to the Beresford with a best friend of mine who has speech impediment issues and after telling the bouncer this he still said she 'was too drunk' and asked us to leave. Rudest place I've ever come across. Please don't come here as a matter of principle.

Maybe it was running into a really old friend, maybe it was the super awesome service from event and bar staff, maybe it was the yummy meat pies.and meeting Ian Roberts. Whether its a comedown, recovery or chill session,... More

Really enjoyed the vegetarian pizza and the expresso martini was on point but my wallet knew I had been out, standard for Sydney though.

Behind its polished green-tile exterior beats the heart of a casual neighbourhood pub with a modern Italian trattoria. The Beresford kitchen offers everything from a simple bowl of fries to wood-fired pizza, salads, steaks and schnitzels. Drop in for lunch or dinner and enjoy some of these great meals in our bistro or courtyard. The Beresford has a number of sections for patrons to enjoy, from the front bar area, dining section and our fabulous outdoor courtyard area. Don't forget Happy Hour 6-8pm daily and free kids meals from Monday through to Thursday.

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
