“|Great service, great view”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

In the summer months, Governors Pub and Eatery has a great view of the Sydney Harbour. Their portions are large and everything I have ever had there is tasty. Great location to downtown.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great atmosphere right in downtown Sydney with local beer on tap and very good food selection.
Great place for supper or a beer after work.

“Great pub with local flavour”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Lots of taps for you beer lovers. A special feature is the availability of local craft beer. I had a Big Spruce stout and a Big Spruce pale ale, both delicious.The pub upstairs is small but provides a friendly atmosphere.

“In the evening great for music and drinks.”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

They have an intimate second floor area with live musicians playing and the gentleman playing that evening was talented and fun. Server I believe is hired more by looks then service skills as she seemed to be annoyed that we ordered food. Could be because of having to take it from the first floor upstairs, not really sure. It didn't really matter after that as we paid her and then just went to the bar to get the drinks ourselves.

Anyway food was average with respect to quality,
taste and amount. Service is mediocre. Atmosphere is good there and that's the biggest drawing point to go there. Had a fun night overall.
