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.
We love to visit this pub for a few drinks and Sunday lunch, great atmosphere and as we were there for the Guinness and Oyster festival we also enjoyed the Oysters and the wonderful Irish dancing, would recommend the steak and Guinness pie.
Excellent spot for a pub lunch in the rocks. Typical pub food - very well priced but food great. Loved the service. Everyone who looked after us was excellent.
