By far the worst pork ribs I've ever had. Supposed to be crispy but they were soggy ribs swimming in sickly sweet plum sauce with a token effort of potato and salad. Stay well clear if you want a good quality pub meal. Starters arrived...More

On one hand, just a pub but on the other, it has so much history. The Rocks is a must area for tourists to visit and this pub still feels like the original from 1842. So much tradition and charm. Also close to the Sydney...More

The place consists of hotel restaurant and bar. On the first floor, there is a large bar and a small dining room. The second floor dining offers a place for larger group. The staff is efficient, friendly. The food is good.

Awesome historic Hotel that has been allowed to retain all its character, immaculately run with great staff, serving up an array of craft beers as well as great pint of Guinness and of course excellent pub grub. It is loved by locals and visitors alike...More

This what the Poms did at Waterloo. The Hero must be one of my favourite bars in Sydney and has a distinct old world charm founded by the legendary Ivan Nelson and continued by his wife, Kazuko. Lots of interesting beer and better still live...More
