Service was good, meal came out promptly. I ordered the burger. Unfortunately I think cooking the meat pattie properly can't have been high on their list of things to do that night. Chips were good though Reasonably priced.

Real pub in the middle of the city. This place became a much loved 'after work drink' watering hole when we worked up the road. Now we've moved to George street, we still make the effort to go when we can. Not sure why we know it as 'The lord Byron' but that's just how it goes. Great atmosphere any... More

The bistro at the Crown Hotel is tucked up the stairs in a cute little dining room. The food selection is varied enough without getting confused. Usual pub fare: schnitzels, steaks, salads etc but other items to tempt and nice specials. Kids menu has small schnitzel, pasta, fish and chips or cheeseburger. Our kids had the schnitty and loved it.... More

Had the $12 steak lunch special and whilst just ok in quality it proved to be pretty good value for the CBD and it's available every day. Bar staff are friendly and the place has a nice homely feel about it.

Stayed at the Vibe hotel opposite, but this was our regular at nights. Friendly staff, decent value food, and live music on nights when we were there.

Visited the Crown Hotel whilst staying across the road at the Vibe hotel.. I ordered the Supreme Pizza for $13. It came quickly, however was very disappointing. The base was undercooked, there was very little topping and too much cheese.. it was a glugy mess. I've eaten at the Crown many times before whilst staying in Sydney & have never... More

This is like stepping back in time to the beginning of the last century - in fact it is as this place has been immaculately preserved. The food is excellent as is the service and all well priced. A perfect place to get away from the busy city

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
