I used to be a regular and I know bartenders by their name. Good value, cheap stout beer and the location made me return often. The steaks were hit and miss (i.e., order rare and get well-done), however, overall still good. Sadly, I won't be returning anytime soon though. Last Friday me and a couple of friends were having a... More

I didn't 't mind ordering at the bar, but after sitting for 15 minutes, while the employees just ignored us, was a little irritating, especially sine the place was mostly empty and they had plenty of time to joke around with each other instead of offering to help an obvious tourist couple. Food was marginal, service non- existent.

This is a well run place and the $8 tiger jugs of beer help. They do have food and variety of other drinks naturally and is centrally located.

If it was possible, on a scale of 1-10 it would be minus 10. Me and my friend went on a Saturday night with friends to find out later on that night she had her purse stolen. We were on our way home when we realised so we ran back and immediately told the security which was a complete waste... More

Hey there, I'd like to let you know that yesterday evening we had a very bad experience in your place. The complaint is about the behaviour of one of the your staff member and not about food or drinks that actually are really good. She was rude, unprofessional and also while my friend and I were asking her questions about... More

Brilliant bar for anyone looking for cheap beers in the centre of Sydney. Only 8 dollars for a jug of cheap lager which comes to about 3 1/2 scooners - very good value in an area where cheap beers are not easy to come by. Would definitely go back, only criticism being the very moody bar worker.

Great pub on the corner selling a range of delicious meals. Reasonable price. Small range of beers on tap. I like the seating arrangements. Sit next to the open window on to the footpath. Great breeze on a muggy day.

Food was typical pub food - not terrible, not great. Lots of good priced drink specials. Really busy at night and on Friday lunch when I was there.

Being solo and a country boy these days, I found a niche in the bar where I could watch the passing parade while enjoying my schooners. The Guinness was well poured too. I had a very tasty lamb shank dinner, reasonably priced. Friendly bar staff made me feel like a regular. The Irish is nicely understated and the atmosphere is... More
