A real piece of unchanged history! Beautiful old pub never been refurbished! Clientele generally 50+ and locals! Felt a bit snobby and unwelcome to be honest! Bar staff fine. Menu looked solid but didnt eat - see photos! If you like a beer and can...More

The place consists of hotel restaurant and bar. On the first floor, there is a large bar and a small dining room. The second floor dining offers a place for larger group. The staff is efficient, friendly. The food is good.

Super cool and historic location for a quick pint or two on a Thursday evening. Carries most (maybe all?) James Squire beers and cider on tap. Yum!

We had lunch there in the warm afternoon of a sunny winter day, the pub was quiet and cosy. The food was good and the barman was nice. He gave me good advice to choose my beer. We liked the historic atmosphere.

Very friendly and welcoming pub just a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of Circular Quay. Pub food and a great range of ales, not just fizzy lagers

One of the oldest pubs in Sydney I believe. Definitely worth a visit if only for a drink. We had dinner there. Traditional pub food, limited choice for vegetarians & anyone with specific dietary needs. We had steaks and they were good, not great, with...More

What a shame this fabulous old pub is spoiled by rip off prices. After buying beers in other pubs at the Rocks for $6 schooner, at the Hero it was close to $9. And to really rub it in they wanted a $5 surcharge to...More
