Great place during happy hour. First visit and we felt like "regulars". Place bursting with people having a really good time. Music pumping, staff well organised and friendly, dinner just right! Not flash but full of character.

What a quaint little pub opposite the Grace Hotel. The meal was a good reasonable price and the steak was cooked to order. We would eat there again.

Thanks to the friendly bar staff. We had a beautiful welcome to Sydney and a fabulous counter style meal on a wet and windy night.

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
