It's not easy finding a quiet, civilised restaurant in Balmain/Rozelle for a birthday or other celebration dinner. The Welcome Hotel dining room fits the bill! Ours was a birthday celebration. We went mid-week on a Wednesday. The dining room is not large, and had one or two tables free. Whatever it was, it was quiet and easy to converse. There... More

We went to this pub recently for sunday lunch as a party of 7. Pub was full inside but plenty of room in their small beer garden out the back. Enjoyed lunch tremendously although it was a bit pricey for a pub. The pub has won awards for its food and the majority of the menu is more restaurant dishes... More

Great choice of beers and other drinks. Menu not bad. The bar food is solid but always seems like it's 25% portion wise short of what you expect in a bar. For example tonight I had the blue eye trevella and pepperonata . Lovely dish. However the pepperonata was such a small portion that I felt at 24 bucks ripped... More

Have been to the welcome hotel beer garden a few times and can't rate it highly enough. Amazing selection of beers, bar tenders who know their stuff and great pub food. Had been meaning to try the restaurant for a while. Finally got there last night and it was a bit disappointing. Pretty average service although the food was nice.... More

What a fantastic pub! Very well appointed with many local craft beers and a reasonable, pub wine selection. I had three of the beers and enjoyed all three and a nice glass of red with lunch. The food was very tasty but small portions. However, the price was commensurate with portion size. All in all a good visit and I... More

My husband and I made a last-minute late dinner reservation on a Saturday night at The Dining Room attached to The Welcome Hotel. We love great pub restaurants (the lovely Four in Hand in Paddington springs to mind) and, given this restaurant had recently received one chef's hat, we thought it would be remiss not to try it. But unfortunately... More

Have been here a couple of times but not to eat as we have booked elsewhere for a meal. We find this a nice cosy place to enjoy some of the range of boutique beers on tap. Pricing is regular for this type of beer and there is a huge selection. Samples as supplied on request just to whet your... More

This pub is great! We met a local who owns the hardware store across the road and has lived in Balmain for over 40 years. My mate suggested a Rocks Golden Ale and I didn’t love it. It had the most bitter taste which is odd because I do love bitter. I switched to the Akasha and really enjoyed that.... More

This is a gem of a pub with an array of excellent beers. Today is our second visit and we decided to have a light lunch. Both my wife and myself had mussels cooked in white wine and garlic, being served with garlic bread. Very tasty and for us the portions were ideal. The hotel is tucked away off the... More

Went here due to good reviews but was a bit disappointed with food. Pie was a bit more like a soup with a soggy top, and what seemed a bit of stingy portion of mussels. Nice chilled atmosphere and friendly staff but wouldn't go back.
