Awesome pizza! My son had a Mexican style and loved it! I had the pumpkin pesto pizza--to die for! Going back for more before we fly back to the US!

We gave lives in Chippendale for 10 years and visit The Rose Hotel on a regular basis. Thought we would grab a couple of beers and some food there last Thursday. What a disappointment. Was charged $21.50 for 2 beers and was then told they were only cooking pizza as short staffed. Had been there a couple of weeks ago... More

Had the mussels, prawns, bok choi and Asian veggies in a green curry broth, with rice. It was heaven on a plate. Would have given 5-stars but it was extremely noisy in there, probably normal for a Friday night but very hard to have a conversation.

I’ve eaten Pizza here before and they are excellent but I saw an article saying how good the Chicken Parmigiana is so I thought I’d give it a go. I went with a few mates after we’d had a few beers on Saturday afternoon and me and one of my Mates who likes a good feed ordered the Chicken Parmigiana... More

My husband and I stopped in for a quick dinner on a Sunday night. The service is friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was quite noisy with lots of young people having a good night out! Our food could only be described as average. The servings are quite large. My burger was cold and soggy and my husband said his fish... More

We went with family (including kids) and friends. The food and atmosphere was great, but the menu is not family friendly. No kids meals, but I don't think the place is meant for families. But we really loved the food and the staff were very friendly.

Expensive food for a pub. Same goes for the decent selection of beers. But good staff, friendly and lively, no pretension. I remember The Rose as a go-to when I was at USYD 10 years ago. And before that, when uni kids would be spoiled with affordable choice. Now the game has picked up, but the real session options are... More

A good beer garden to sit and chat. Most customers are youngster to middle age. Foods are expensive. Service is good.

The "Native Rose", as it used to be, offers Cooper's Sparkling Ale on draught and for that reason alone it is worth a visit. They also have a variety of other beers on offer, both draught and packaged. The kitchen offers the usual burger fare and a pleasant place to have it, in the beer garden, in good weather. I... More

We came here for a beer before a show at the Seymour Centre. What a pleasant surprise. Friday afternoon and the place was alive but............... The service was great and the beer icy cold so we decided to have dinner. 6 different meals came to our table and on a vote all were "delicious". Salads are wonderful and a great... More
