recommended pub Ancient Briton
A claimant to "Coldest beer in Sydney".

225 Glebe Point Road,

(02) 9660 1417

The Briton has been subject to a massive revamp over the last few months, and while not 100% finished, the place is looking pretty schmick. Upstairs (and what stairs!), is a lounge bar with fishtanks built into the bar (oh the poor fish!), and plenty of pool tables as before, but in much slicker, dark wood surroundings. bottom floor, pokies and a waterfall, middle floor, comfortable seating and a friendy, if a bit stiffly new, atmosphere. Look out for a new comprehensive review soon, but for now, NICE renovations guys.

I was in the Ancient Briton in 1999 and it was heaving with young people. I went back there earlier this year (2004) and the place was dead. The owners/managers should realise that people come to the pub to socialise not to stare at a ugly over sized TV screen. They had the thing blaring out horse racing mid-friday night when I was there - and they wonder why no-one goes there anymore. Turn the telly off and put some music on.

My kind of pub. Homely, friendly, well priced and no pokies I could see.

good pub all in all, blatant lie about the temperature of the beer though, ive pissed colder than that, also i have foundthe bar staff pleasant enough but painfully slow at serving you

The AB is the best pub in Sydney. All the girls are fit and the beer gets you well pissed. Love it.
