A Tasty Underground Dive

Yelp Sydney recently named the Old Growler one of the city’s top burger destinations, and I can see why. The lively atmosphere, quick food service and large libation selection that includes wine, champagne and mixed cocktails makes it a Kings Cross hot spot. (11 February)

Loved this place

Tucked away in a basement, a wonderful escape from a windy, rainy, evening, loads of character and incredibly friendly staff. We were completely looked after and the food and drinks were distinctive and full of taste. The craft beer was also excellent. Great seating options; a couple, a small group, drinks after work for your team or seek out the long table for a larger group event. Highly recommended. (15 January)

One of the best bars in Darlinghurst

It’s not all that hard to earn the title of ‘The Best Bar in Darlinghurst’ considering what most of the competition is like (okay, there are some decent pubs around, but don’t expect to find them on Darlinghurst Road), but this bar certainly fits the bill. In fact this bar sets the standard so high that it is going to be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, for any other place to get anywhere close (at least in the Darlinghurst area). Sure, it is located downstairs in a basement, but that is what adds to the charm of the place. Also the beers are cheap, and they have some pretty cool selections – none of the standard drops that you will find in most pubs. Oh, and the staff are pretty awesome as well. Highly recommend checking this place out! (19 September)

Incredible!

This pub is quite possibly my favourite in Sydney. The burger has to be one of the best I’ve ever had (the roadhouse burger), and the craft beer selection is amazing …  It’s extremely welcoming and relaxed which is what I love.  Oh and most importantly, the price for everything was just brilliant. Given that sydney is stupid expensive, this place is not. Quality and good service and a great price. I love this place (23 September)

Thank you

Hi guys, just wanted to say a big thank you to all the guys who looked after my 40th birthday on Saturday 12 Sept. The staff were great! (16 September)

Best Burger in Sydney

Went to the Old Growler on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The Burger was delicious and full of goodness. My friend had the Parma and it looked pretty awesome too. Good selection of Craft Beers and wine available and the setting is very funky. Basement type bar with a real ‘lived in’ vibe. (11 July)

Super cool

Went here for my friends birthday after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor and I’m glad we did. Great selection of craft beers and ales on tap. About $10 a pint. We ordered food a starter and a main each. Jesus Christ the portions are big! The wings were huge and there was 6 or 7 of them. The mac n cheese came in a big bowl. The wedgies come with 3 dips. The burgers were great, steak juicy, chicken Parma was awesome too. So much food! The manager said if we could eat it all he’d give us free beer. Sure enough we finished it all and got free beer! Definitely coming back (11 July)
