Great food. Lovely atmosphere. The pub attracts tourists and locals. They also have a screen to watch the footy. Service is good. I would go back next time I'm in Sydney.

A must visit if you like beer. We took the time to sample all the beers, so we could make a qualitative assessment for the benefit of others. The only pub we visited twice while in Sydney, great atmosphere, good food and excellent beer.
