Location and contact

For authentic pub dining, Phillip’s Foote offers a quintessential Australian experience. Cook your own steak or fish on one of our courtyard BBQs and complement with your choice of fresh side dishes from our salad bar. Wash it down with one of our hand-picked wines or beers. With its heritage atmosphere and historic charm, Phillip’s Foote has a dining option for everyone; couples, small groups, larger events. Winter or summer, from the intimate Phillip room, to the picturesque Sydney Cove Room or Garden Courtyard, there’s plenty of nooks and crannies to explore.

A great find. Choose your meat, steak,ribs,burger, cook it to your taste, and help yourself to fresh salad, vegetables, potatoes and lovely bread. Reasonably priced wine at the bar, whats not to like?? (PS you don't have to do your own washing -up.)

If you didn’t know what this hidden gem had to offer you would just walk past what just looks like a small pub and probably go elsewhere if you wanted a meal but you would miss a treat. Enter the pub bar and buy your...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
