As Australia’s oldest Irish pub, The Mercantile Hotel is a Sydney institution, loved by locals, Irish expats and travellers alike. Built in 1914, Mercantile Hotel is has lots of historic charm, much like The Rocks area which it is located in. With live music on the weekends, a menu full of traditional Irish cuisine and pub food favorites, and a buzzing atmosphere, whether it is for dinner or drinks, Mercantile Hotel is a popular choice. Tuck into some hearty Irish stew (diced lambs, onion, carrots and celery, cooked in stock and served with toasted bread) or some bangers and mash, washed down with a pint of Guinness or Kilkenny. You’ll find Mercantile Hotel located on George Street, a short walk from Circular Quay train station – book a table and head on over.

This is our regular goto pub when we are in Sydney. Great location, great food and great drinks. Just all in all an awesome Irish experience.
Booked a table outside for 12 noon, we enjoyed the sunshine on a cold day. Easy to find the table as there was reserve sign and a red tile with my name and time written on the tile. Order inside and the food is brought out to you. Great location near the Sunday market. Service was great also. Menu had a large variety at reasonable prices
