“Great Pub, Great "Home Beer", good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

A great pub down in the Rock area of Sydney. They brew their own beer on site with 6 different varieties available. There is a good selection of Pub Grub to eat and despite being extremely busy in the after work crowd, the service from the staff was very courteous and efficient. A must visit for anyone visiting Sydney wanting to see a bit of history (The oldest Pub Brewery in Australia) in a great location with great beer on tap!

“Great old pub with fabulous beers and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We had seen this place on a UK TV show, so just had to visit.

The beers were absolutely superb and brewed on site in the microbrewery. The place isn't smelly, thats just malted hops and the aroma of brewing! Good descriptions above the bar of what to expect from the beers on tap and they were hand-pulled to perfection.

The bistro style food was very tasty and reasonably priced by some of Sydney's standards.

Unfortunately, didn't get down here in the evening as we were staying too far away, but the relaxed ambience at lunchtime was brilliant.

Thoroughly recommended.

“Historical pub”

One of the musts for a pub crawl around the Rocks area - even if it's only for a cool stop out of the summer heat

“nice ale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

There is a nice selection of Ales from the brewery. I tried the Three Sheets and Old Admiral Ales which were very pleasant. The pub itself is a little smelly but i suppose that the yeasty smell from the beer. I enjoyed the quality ales in a old building with a cool atmosphere and would definitely go back for more.
