We ate here twice in 3 days as our hotel was within walking distance. Both times we had the Curry and the Guinness Pie. On both occasions the food was exceptional, the staff were excellent and the atmosphere was brilliant. When our family come to visit this is on our list to bring our guest!

An Irish pub serving great food and drink in very friendly atmosphere. We visited twice as not that many British style pubs in the city and was close to our hotel. The food was particularly good value and with a pint of Guinness was just the job after a busy day sightseeing. Highly recommend.

Used this Irish bar several times during our stay in Surrey Hills after long days sightseeing when we just wanted to eat close to our hotel. Special of the day is excellent value but the normal menu is really good value and quality. Guinness is especially good. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Stayed at the Cambridge and enjoyed the neighborhood pub, the Porterhouse. Drinks and food were very good and it was a fun atmosphere with all the locals from the area.

This pub was full of people watching a sports game. I loved the cave like brick walls and the atmosphere. We had the daily special which was substantial which was pretty decent.

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
