After a day’s hiking we felt like a hearty meal so opted for the famous pie. Was very bland and the chips were soggy. Would not recommend!

Whilst it is stretching a point to say that this is an “authentic” Irish Pub, nevertheless it serves great food and drink, there is a good ambience and the staff are friendly and helpful. Try the Beef and Guinness pie with chips and salad -...More

We were suffering the miserable Katoomba weather - 5degrees, drizzle and fog and escaped into this place. Decayed elegance, jerry-built improvements and even a smoke-darkened ceiling. Got to be the best imitation British pub in Oz. The service was excellent. Nice barmaid brought my stout...More

A busy night but the staff were relaxed, had time to provide comment on beers and food and were attentive without being intrusive. Also good food supplied in reasonable time. The pizzas were good value and sufficiently different from main stream.
