Lovely pub in a great location, well worth a visit; good selection of beers on tap. Had lunch in main pub which was pleasant enough but portion sizes small - pretty expensive to eat here.

This is the oldest hotel in Sydney as per our bike tour guide. Great to have a beer - they have 7 or 8 for all tastes on the tab. We did not eat but many were having meals and they looked good as well.

We stayed in the rooms upstairs but the pub itself is worth a visit. Great pale ale called the Three Lines. Very authentic and doesn't have to try too hard.

We went there for the history and lunch. We were happy we went, but weren't raving about lunch. Nothing bad - just bar food and nothing to write home about. Service was fine.

The Lord Nelson is a wonderful pub with a great atmosphere and really good beer. The pub has an English feel to it and it's great to get away from the tourists at the waterfront. I will definitely visit again next time I'm in Sydney

Hi guys! I am really confused searching Sydney nightlife as all higher rating nightlife spots are bars and not dance clubs. Can you please suggest some good dance night out place that offers good music and ambience and easy on the pocket too. Thnx in advance 😊
