My friends enjoyed similar plus the local made Polamade (lemon based with tequila mix - spelling might wrong). The bar staff were friendly and chatty. Funny thing...

I didn't have what I perceived to be the best experience here. I'll try to keep things factual and let you make your own judgements. I attended on a Thursday night recently. It wasn't that busy in the grand scheme of things. I ordered dinner at 18.10 along with a drink. Bar staff were pleasant and courteous. At 18.50 ,...

Popped in here on the way back from the Rugby yesterday. We stayed for a few ales as they were cheap and the glasses (dimpled half pints) were really cold.

Stayed here for some time in 2009 whilst floating around Australia backpacking, friendly, clean, great food and great service. Always have specials on the board and all food is cooked fresh and in a timely manner. Excellent evening entertainment - live bands, mic nights . Only a short 10 min walk into Sydney. 5* Thanks for a fab time :)...

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
