Stopped in for lunch and I am very impressed with the venue. It is hidden away in a back street of Rozelle, the history of the place goes back to early settlement in the area. Great menu and very well presented decor highlighting the history...More

The Bald Rock is my local hotel. Good food and they are one of the last pubs in Balmain to still have a band playing. Locals drink here after work and on warm nights spill over on to the street. Old Balmain style. Relaxed atmosphere.

This place wins for being so old and so authentic. I’d never had a Carlton Draught so tried it and enjoyed it. My mate says it is the Miller Lite of the USA. That’s okay I liked it. Had to leave quickly to keep up...More

Even though we live in another suburb we call this our local. It has been a pub from 1876 and the sandstone walls and open fire in winter add to the atmosphere. The food is very good and they have a daily lunch special for...More

The Bald Rock Hotel is the oldest continually licensed venue in the Rozelle and Balmain area.
If these original sandstone walls could talk, they would tell you of a colourful history of the origins of working class Rozelle and Balmain.

These days, the Bald Rock enjoys a reputation for being a family pub with excellent food, live music and friendly bar staff. The perfect spot for a catch-up with friends and family, happy hour drinks with workmates or enjoying a delicious Sunday Roast.

We dish up quality pub classics inspired by traditional European cuisine, reflecting the origin of the pub, with a modern twist. Head Chef Ben Palmer, formerly of Bistro Bruno, uses the best of local produce to create a regularly changing menu in an authentic atmosphere.

Mondays - Hurling and Gaelic Football
