I could have sat in this pub all day. It was beuatiful, open, bright and airy. The staff was fantastic and the beer was good. Great pub

This place is just great for a warm afternoon lunch. Outside on the footpath or inside downstairs. The food is delicious, reasonably good value. The wine is a little on the steep side but not outrageous. The ambience makes it worth it and its good...More

It’s probably been a couple of years since our last visit, and we were pleased to see a new menu and new management. The street-front tables were full but a friendly diner offered to share her table with us. We enjoyed our meals, wines and...More

Last time I came here, all schooners were $6, which was a great deal for a pub just across from the water. Well, not anymore, although the prices were still lower than many places. The food’s ordinary pub food at high prices though.

Well we just turned up to this Hotel and in no uncertain terms was suggested we were not welcome and visit the pub across the road!! Was it because we were middle aged and had two gay friends with us? I would hope not but...More

Having walked to Mrs Macquaries Chair we decided to grab a drink and something simple to eat in Woolloomooloo. We read that Woolloomooloo is known for Finger Wharf, which is an old cargo dock and the area has gone through a gentrification process. It’s designed...More

Good Lawd. Will someone tell the Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel to get over themselves? It started fine with great bar staff, but then it went downhill. The wait to queue and order meals was ages. And then not only did meals come out piecemeal. Meals were...More
