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, reasonable price, nice staff. My only complaint is that the mussels were really tiny this time. When ordered previous visits they were large and plump.
The food and staff were both amazing. It was very busy with the markets but the staff were always available to help. I was a little disappointed to not get soda bread with the stew, but think they had run out but everything else was great! Thank you!
Booked Christmas in July set menu, food was fabulous particularly the pumpkin soup was amazing! We really enjoyed our evening with nice decorations and music :) only suggestion I would have is to offer mulled wine to have after!
