If you want nice pub food bought to your table at the same time and drinks provided with great service then go to this pub. Not too busy and new people are liked and well treated.

The Bald Rock is my local hotel. Good food and they are one of the last pubs in Balmain to still have a band playing. Locals drink here after work and on warm nights spill over on to the street. Old Balmain style. Relaxed atmosphere.

The Bald Rock Hotel is the oldest continually licensed venue in the Rozelle and Balmain area. If these original sandstone walls could talk, they would tell you of a colourful history of the origins of working class Rozelle and Balmain. These days, the Bald Rock enjoys a reputation for being a family pub with excellent food, live music and friendly bar staff. The perfect spot for a catch-up with friends and family, happy hour drinks with workmates or enjoying a delicious Sunday Roast. We dish up quality pub classics inspired by traditional European cuisine, reflecting the origin of the pub, with a modern twist. Head Chef Ben Palmer, formerly of Bistro Bruno, uses the best of local produce to create a regularly changing menu in an authentic atmosphere. What's on: Mondays - Hurling and Gaelic Football GAA match replays, every week in July, July and august Wednesdays - Kids Eat Free! Free Kids meal per child, with the purchase of a main meal Thursdays - Trivia with Simon Show off your talent for general knowledge and you might even min a prize or two!
