Seems like a typical inner Sydney pub from outside and the main bar with 3-4 pool tables being the feature would leave you with the same impression. Not an over-renovated place. Back bar has a mix of Bowling Club feel combined with a more comfortable lounge area. Nice outdoor area as well. Plenty of options, which can be handy if a band is playing in the front bar.
Seems to have struck a good mix between modernity and staying with the feel of King Street, Newtown.
Service is par for the course for an Australian pub, nothing much more and no less. Get the drink, take the cash and do it efficiently.
Very good selection of Australian craft or wannabe craft. Now up to about 16 non-macro taps. Had Stone & Wood, Murrays Dark Knight, Two Birds Golden, 4 Pines Amarillo, Holgate Blonde Bombshell, Pinchgut Pils, Vale Wit and many more. Decent bottled selection of Australian craft beer.
Enjoyed the gnocchi, quite good for $16 and enough there to satisfy.
Prices are decent. Serving sizes are NSW standard sizes of 10oz middys and 16oz schooners, in squat schooner glasses. Prices for the 16oz are around $6-$8, which is good for the size. Jugs (40oz) of Stone & Wood Pacific for $16 are tempting as well.
For Australian craft I think this is in the top couple of places to visit in Sydney. Good tap range of breweries, styles don't venture much beyond the approachable ones, but a normal pub having a good go of things.
