Called in twice during our stay in Sydney, found it by happy chance. Brilliant atmosphere, good craic and food that is so good ! Home made Cottage pie, Irish stew, and the soon to be famous Shamrock pie. Just sitting outside and watching the world go by is a pleasure here, add a Guinness and tot of Rum you're set for the night. Try the Mercantile you will not be disappointed.

Found ourselves lingering longer as the musician played favorite and sentimental songs. Good beer in the happy hour. Good place to relax after lots of walking.

We weren't expecting Canberra temperatures in Sydney, so when the temperature dropped it was time for comfort food. Bangers and mash. Yes! We checked out several menus at pubs in The Rocks, but the only one that offered what we were looking for was The Mercantile. A cosy corner by the heater, a heartwarming meal and great service. Full marks and many thanks!
