I'm reviewing this place because my wife and I were in Sydney for a weekend recently. I was looking at thefork.com.au for highly rated venues and this came up. Apparently it's the oldest pub in Sydney, and it's certainly right in the heart of the Rocks district with the nurses' lane running behind it. I ordered the chicken schnitzel with chips; my wife the halloumi salad. I has happy with my meal, I'd say my wife was satisfied with hers. The service was ok. The ambience was calm as we had an early lunch before any crowds got in. Value wise, it was not unreasonable. Would I be a regular? - not sure; I'd need to check out what else is around before going back.
Good food & good service
The staff we very friendly and accommodating. The pub was lively and the bistro quaint. The meal was delicious I had the special hallumi salad very tasty with a hit of spice.
What a wonderful dinning experience! Would definitely go back again!

Friendly staff good service
Must be the best value in The Rocks, dined during Vivid and was most impressed with the quick service and food. Very small venue, that could be the reason why the excell in value, service and taste.
Amazing food, especially those chicken wings
Service was top notch especially for a working lunch! Food was amazing and very reasonably priced. Definitely needed to book a table for a Friday lunch but table booked was ideal. Food was served quickly, well presented and wait staff were very attentive.
Good service and good value
We went as a group of over 15 people. Everything was good. However, some of my colleagues felt the food took time to be delivered to the table.
Love this pub. Right at the Quay. Has entertainment and accommodation also. Really easy place to be.
Still the best little pub in Sydney
