Barman skips juke box songs if he doesn’t like them , I am sorry but if you pay for a song on a juke box it needs to be played the Barman doesn’t have the right to skip the song, very poor customer customer service

There is nothing good to say about this venue. I went there with a non-drinker who drinks lemonade and he was asked to leave for being intoxicated ten minutes after being there. I’m a screenwriter for Warners Bros and he is a manager for a...More

This small pub had the Katoomba Brewing Company's "Great White Fleet American Pale Ale" on tap and it was really good. It was a pleasant place but the furniture and carpets were shabby and torn.

After a day’s hiking we felt like a hearty meal so opted for the famous pie. Was very bland and the chips were soggy. Would not recommend!

Whilst it is stretching a point to say that this is an “authentic” Irish Pub, nevertheless it serves great food and drink, there is a good ambience and the staff are friendly and helpful. Try the Beef and Guinness pie with chips and salad -...More

We were suffering the miserable Katoomba weather - 5degrees, drizzle and fog and escaped into this place. Decayed elegance, jerry-built improvements and even a smoke-darkened ceiling. Got to be the best imitation British pub in Oz. The service was excellent. Nice barmaid brought my stout...More

A busy night but the staff were relaxed, had time to provide comment on beers and food and were attentive without being intrusive. Also good food supplied in reasonable time. The pizzas were good value and sufficiently different from main stream.
