I need not say more. I pulled up a stool, grabbed a pint of Guinness and some bangers and mash. It's exactly what it advertises. Great history, friendly staff.

This is an old Irish pub with accommodations. We came here for a drink after a walk at The Rocks. Quite busy, plenty of people sit outside. Nice waiter. I think they have band performance in the evening.

A busy Irish pub (reputedly the longest running Irish pub in Australia) under (almost) the eaves of the Sydney Harbour bridge. Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the food. The Chicken Schnitzel was good!
