Enjoyed a sensational meal at the Bold Rock Hotel last week. Previously the menu seemed limited if you don't eat pies, meat, fish'n chips (with the usual alternatives being pasta). Nowadays there are various options if you like fresh, don't eat meat and don't like everything fried. My partner and I enjoyed a sensational meal of 'Pan roasted Barramundi fillet'... More

If you want nice pub food bought to your table at the same time and drinks provided with great service then go to this pub. Not too busy and new people are liked and well treated.

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 the pace. Band was just arriving. Wish we could have heard a bit. According to... 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 $10 and its great.

One of the smaller pubs in the Balmain peninsular. Its less trendier and new than its other rival Balmain pubs like the Townhall, Riverview, London or Cat and Fiddle which are Balmain pubs that have been gentrified with modern renovations and benefit being on or near the main Balmain strip that is Darling St. Bald Rock is a more authentic...
