Looking for a hearty beer and a plate of comfort food after a long day in the office? This is perhaps Sydney’s oldest and most well-loved English pub. For an afternoon of respite and old school kick back, get cosy and comfortable in one of the slouchy lounges. You can warm up in winter by nestling close to the open fireplace or cool off in summer with one of the 18 beers offered on tap.

This pub is perfect if you’re looking to spice up your afternoon pub crawl with a bit of class.
