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.
Great food & service. Was very relaxing considering & not crowded considering it was Tue night. They had heaters outside, so very pleasant to sit out. Irish stew was great!!
I recommend the excellent Shamrock Pie and a $7 pint of Guinness. There are daily specials on the menu. The whole pub has an authentic Irish feeling to it.
Food was great!! It was also nice to see Irish people working at the pub. Gave real feeling and ambiance on Irish pub. I’ll definitely recommend this place and come again.
