Rainy day in Sydney and a good stop for good Guinness and some live music. The staff are friendly and the building and architecture is so interesting. One of the oldest pubs standing in the rocks and worth a visit on a wet Saturday afternoon.

While staying in Sydney we looked for a place to have a good hearty meal and stumbled on the Mercantile Hotel. The food is amazing. Really good quality, portion size and price. Highly recommended and we will be back.

We had lunch here as a friend of ours is Irish. The food wasnt bad for pub food. They had a singer entertainer about 1.30pm . He to wasnt to bad. A bit of banter with the crowd as well. We stayed else where we came back here later on that night the door guy was great at finding us a table to sit at as he recognised us from the lunch time after a few guinesses
