The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Balmain
Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and be enchanted with this picturesque and eclectic waterside area. A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”. It has evolved into a health-conscious heaven with a laid back attitude, offering one of the most vibrant food and bar scenes in Sydney.

Professional and friendly staff who managed to set a beautiful table for a group of 11 persons with just 10 minutes notice! Food was good with historical ambiance. Good environment for group gathering and conversation.

Stopped in at the London on our first day in Balmain. Great service and very friendly staff. Food was very good, as were the drinks. Staff were extremely helpful, as we had not been in Balmain before ...they were happy to tell us about some things we should do.

Great spot!

My mates (who are locals), brought me here for a meal. I was expecting pub food but I was really pleasantly surprised with the clean and modern presentation of the dining area and the relaxed, friendly wait staff. Our food was worth the wait; rich and clever flavour combinations with fresh produce cooked to perfection. A good selection of wines and beers rounds out a very good experience. Mains averaged $30. Points off for being a little cramped (due to historic architecture). Also, you'd have trouble getting up the hill (from the Ferry) and negotiating this place if you're less than able on your feet.

Great place for a beer
May 2017 • Friends
The neighborhood of Balmain is easily reached by a lovely ferry ride. Has a village feel and is not touristy. We got an insiders tip from a Sydney friend that this a nice neighborhood to see if you have already seen the major sights in Sydney and we heartily agree. From the ferry stop, it is a relatively steep mile walk up the main street. We had a nice beer at the London hotel which has great outdoor seating facing Darling Street as the sun was setting. Delightful!

Traditional Balmain Pub
May 2016 • Couples
Chance to grab a cold beer in a beautiful traditional Balmain style Hotel. Great timber work, terrific staff, fine selection of beers and if you're lucky enough grab a seat on the balcony with a view of the Harbour Bridge. A real locals Hotel that you don't feel out of place as a visitor. Close to many great restaurants but if you don't feel like a walk there is nothing wrong with selection of food at the Pub. Well worth a visit.
