Visited Beresford on a Friday for a close friends birthday, friendly employees and cool decked out area up stairs. The place was cranking and hard to get a drink at times, but all in all nice pub.

Would not come back here. Bouncers think they own the place. Food is below average and the lines to go to the upstairs area are ridiculous

The Beresford was our first local on moving to Sydney and 8 years later we're still back on a regular basis. Great food and drinks. But most important, incredible friendly, welcoming and family feel of service. They do the Merivale group proud. Highlight is going on one of our hundreds of beautiful days in Sydney and heading out to the... More

After only been in Sydney for three days yesterday was our third visit here. Such a large space with a large outdoor seating area. Happy hour 6-8pm everyday. With the food being great also, i would recommend any of the pizzas. Sundays are also really popular with the gay audience with music pumping throughout the place from noon onwards.

This pub has been well appointed and designed with a good modern theme. The layout is spacious however it is a hike to the bathrooms and it can be very noisy. However, i will still come here. It even had a great vibe at 5pm on a Saturday afternoon. And the sweet potato chips are just amazing. Best ever so... More
