This pub is great! We met a local who owns the hardware store across the road and has lived in Balmain for over 40 years. My mate suggested a Rocks Golden Ale and I didn’t love it. It had the most bitter taste which is odd because I do love bitter. I switched to the Akasha and really enjoyed that.... More

This is a gem of a pub with an array of excellent beers. Today is our second visit and we decided to have a light lunch. Both my wife and myself had mussels cooked in white wine and garlic, being served with garlic bread. Very tasty and for us the portions were ideal. The hotel is tucked away off the... More

Went here due to good reviews but was a bit disappointed with food. Pie was a bit more like a soup with a soggy top, and what seemed a bit of stingy portion of mussels. Nice chilled atmosphere and friendly staff but wouldn't go back.

My friends and I had Sunday dinner here. I ordered the gnocchi which consisted of 9 small pieces and a cold tomato based sauce. My friends ordered the angus beef burger and found it to be very gristly. It was a shame as the beer garden and beer/cider selection was good.

We had lunch in this delightful pub for my son's birthday. On a roaster of a day it was the perfect choice; a dark English style room with air con! The food was very good-ricotta with lamb rage and a chicken and leek pie. The beer was sensational. Could have spent the afternoon tasting there! Seek it out

Small but very enjoyable pub with craft beers and ciders on tap. Staff will let you taste before buying which helps avoid wasting cash on something you don't like. Very nice little beer garden out the back. Staff are pleasant and helpful.

We recently had a small wedding reception at Ajo Italian Restaurant which is in The Welcome Hotel , the service was excellent and the food was of a very high standard. We were all impressed as serving a large group all at once is often a difficult undertaking.

Ajo restaurant inside this small suburban hotel is a real find. The attention to detail in the preparation and presentation of the food is at a level we have not previously experienced in this type of environment. Our waiter was able to talk in detail about ingredients and procedures used in the kitchen and also was knowledgable about wine. As... More

really liked the cosy feel to the pub and their selection of beers and wine is good. They would have deserved 3-4 points for that by itself. Service was ok to good too. However the food was unfortunately quite a disappointment. The fish & chips were awful and the suckling pig burgers were lacking more coleslaw or something else. the... More
