“Great burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This pub is known for it's extensive burger menu and even keeps ardent vegetarians happy. The food is consistently good, the service is fine but uneventful and the upstairs balcony area is a gem on a long slow summer afternoon. It can get noisy but it's a pub after all. The wagyu burger is a favourite, as is the portobello mushroom burger. Nice chocolate molten cake if you have room.

“Interesting venue, 1879 build”

If you are in the area or there is something on here, recommended! More to the point is the adjacent Court House complex!

“Top of the Hill pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

This Pub has enjoyed a chequered career, spanning the decades as the favourite watering hole for a changing group of clients, depending on who is currently the Publican. It is located close to the Court House at the top of the hill in Balmain, close to many restaurants and bus stops. These days it enjoys a younger group of customers.

“Birthday function was great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

Had my 50th birthday drinks at the Town Hall Hotel. The service was great, the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and the 50+ freinds and family all commented on how nice things were. I felt it was excellent value-for-money. We had a great time and I am glad I had it there.
