Stumbled across the Royal George while we were looking for lunch in Sydney and it was a great find. The food was great and very reasonably priced and the staff were welcoming. I had one of the best burgers I've ever had and my daughters both had the special cannelloni which was delicious. Seek it out!

Very average meal, staff were not very happy and had to wait a long time to be served. Food was okay but would not rave over it. All and all maybe it was a one off bad experience but will not be rushing back.

Very happy with our luck, the dining is order at the bar, but even though it was quite busy there was not much of a wait time for drinks or to order food. Dinner was quick and very good, we both had the parma and happy... More

Seemed like a nice spot for a beer, let down by the food. I ordered the chicken Parma which was ok, my partner ordered the chicken tandoori which came out dead cold. Not good enough.

This place has multiple floors and is especially busy around noon and happy hour. Its menu is geared mostly for office workers in the neighborhood who come for something simple to accompany the popular beers and other spirits. We got into the spirit of the place and ordered their spicy BBQ buffalo wings with Korean chili dressing. Not bad, but... More

Came on a Thursday night not expecting much... the bartender Liam was so much fun! we were going to leave early but ended to staying all night. He makes the best espresso martinis I've ever had and he even charged my phone for me. Legend. Definitely coming back.

Visited Royal George with my sister last week for a casual weeknight dinner before late night shopping on Thursday. Royal George was very busy, there was only one spare table in the upstairs bar area where food is served. Having said that, the food came out quite quickly, decent portion size, and was tasty. Probably would be more enjoyable on... More

The best of both worlds, The Royal George combines traditional brick paving and timber, with contemporary touches that include a split-level interior and a balcony overlooking the grand pool table area below. Discreetly lit, the George has an easy warmth and charm that makes it a great place to relax, chill and enjoy some great pub food. Drop in and enjoy the George's modern take on a traditional favourite.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
