Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stayed across the road for a week and ate at this great Pub many time with various friends. Well worth the visit and lots of fun on a Friday night.

“Great food on a Budget or for Families”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were visiting from Melb and don't like to visit any food places twice but this was the exception.
Great $10 specials for those on a budget (us) $10 can get you a 250g sirloin steak with mashed potato or fries. Add $2 for a sauce and $3 for a bowl of veggies if you wish. You can also get $10 lasagne, complete with small side salad or a curry.

There is also a $7 kids menu: fettucine in a tomato based sauce, fish n chips or chicken strips. All a generous in side and tasty and come complete with a scoop of icecream.They also open all day so if you have young kids, you can dine early (5pm)

“Great value meal & drinks!!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

What a find The Sanctuary Hotel was.....popped in for a couple of drinks on a Friday afternoon and stayed there for most of the evening incorporating tea.
Not a massive selection available on the menu but what we had was excellent and well worth the $26 for both meals.
Also the $9 cocktails and $7 pints added to the night.
If staying at the Meriton Kent St Appt's then it's definitely worth a visit!!!

“Lost my meal”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Average food especially after waiting over 1.5 hours for it. They lost the order so had to go back into the line of food being cooked.

“Great value for money..”
Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Hotel located opposite accommodation. Was given a flyer re specials as walking down the street. It looked like a very ordinary older pub, but thought prices of $9.90 for steak too good to pass up. Wasn't disappointed. Ok so not 5 star dining, but certainly great value for money, and food was excellent. Went back over weekend with friends as we thought it was such good value for Sydney. Weekends ( fri - Sat) specials not apply but prices still excellent. Noisy yes, ordinary yes, but just great pub atmosphere and great food and great prices. Will return on next visit to Sydney.
