Went with a group of friends for dinner and drinks. The atmosphere was okay but the food was way below average. If it was based on just my food I would give it a negative rating. I ordered chicken parmigiana (because pork wasn't available) and the chicken was dry (I can forgive that for a schnitzel) but there was hardly... More

We were looking for somewhere to have dinner near our hotel. We chance upon the rose hotel as we heard music and smell great food . We managed to get a table and ordered a Pizza, Steak, Fish and Chips. We also ordered a cider and beer. Food was good and there was a pool table and music was nice.

The Rose has a reputation for being busy and often very noisy of an evening and during weekday lunchtimes. We ventured into the place for a Sunday lunch and it was nothing like that - a quiet, sunny spot to have a chat, and enjoy a drink and a meal. Just what the doctor ordered. Menu options are generally a... More

My teenage daughter and I met some friends here the other night for pre-theatre dinner. We were off to the Seymour Theatre for an 8pm play. This pub is great fun. It's got that daggy, cool vibe. 6pm on a Thursday and it was a happening place. Our group of 9 sat at a courtyard table under a brolly and... More

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.
