We stopped in for a quick bite to eat in the courtyard. Nicely designer bar & restaurant area. Courtyard is great on nice sunny Sydney days. We had the lamb sliders which were great! The beetroot salad was a little disappointing - not much taste. I'm guessing the beetroots weren't fresh. Good wine and cocktail list - reasonably priced also.

I came here as a direct result of a recommendation from a friend who said the pizza is just like in Italy. Having never been to Italy and loving pizza this was the first stop on my list. I got the pizza Margherita. It was good, it was very good. But the texture was not something I cared for or... More

Great place to catch up for lunch, but on week ends you definitely need to book a table. Not a large menu which is good , fresher produce and ingredients. Average pub prices for food and beer garden drinks. Meal of very adequate size, chicken wings nearly stopped me, but I enjoyed the flavour. Not overly noisy ,so could still... More

Accidentally found this place which is clearly a local favourite. Lovely outdoor area and packed with a youngish crowd. Great vibe...very friendly and everyone doing their thing with no hassle. Bar staff efficient and friendly. Meals were good (we had steak) but needed a sauce of some kind. Not sure what happy hour rules are but our first two pints... More

We met a group of friends here for a quick lunch and a few drinks before a footy game at the SCG. Loved the location, the decor, the service, the food was good and drinks cold. A great place to meet friends.

I go there with a friend. We have just an hour and half for have a lunch and we enjoy it really. Good food but maybe a little expensive. Awesome tap beers. And the terrace is lovely.

I popped in here on Saturday night for drinks. It was extremely hot in Sydney that day, and the front bar was so cooool. However my drinks were in the bistro area...and the rear doors wide open. There appeared to be no air-conditioning at all. I sat there sweating until I'd had enough, and wet to an air conditioned pub.

Had two visits to the Beresford during the rugby 7s. Our strategy is to spend a couple of hours at lunch out of the worst of the heat, and then return to the ground mid pm. It's only about a 15 min walk to Allianz - perfect. Reasonably quiet in the bar area. Friendly staff, tvs (for the games) and... More

My favorite waterhole in Sydney, if not entire Australia. They have an awesome backyard garden right in the midst of the city and you usually find a young- mid aged hip crowd and decent music. Best is the every day happy hour including Pints of various beer or the great James Squire Apple Cider for only $6 from 6pm to... More
