There's a segment of the pubguide team which is quite fond of Billy's. There's another which can't stand it. This is probably the reason we don't get to go there as much as we used to. Jason, along with extended team members Trent and Viv, is one of the ones that like it. Josh and Sophie don't. Our favourite haunt is upstairs, round the pool tables or seated at the bar, but don't sit at the end of the bar nearest the pool tables. We're not sure if it's been fixed or not, but for about six months there was a section of the bar edging which could deliver you a nifty little electric shock. not enough to really hurt, but certainly enough to make you spill your beer! The pub is a very late opener, which is usually why we're there - having been turfed out of other local haunts at closing time. It's a known haunt of backpackers, and of slightly crazy locals, but it's usually fun. But grotty. definitely grotty.

Nick Read from Bondi Junction
Frank Lowy you loser. Westfield's Eastside shopping Mecca had strangled and destroyed what used to be Billy the Pigs and the Bondi Junction Hotel, the only remaining feature - 2 metres of floor tiling at the door. How can tradition, and heritage be turned into try-hard cocktail bar? Billy the Pigs is dead. Its new name, "The Eastern" will only be populated by fly-by shoppers who use it as a place to light up in the middle of the mall. I encourage people not to patronise this monstrosity, and walk an extra yard to the Nelson or Mill Hill.

Ahh, the memories! Great pool room and great schooner of 'New'. Good for an 'after work' drink.

This place is a hole - literally. Closed at the moment because of the construction work going on all around it at Westfield Bondi Junction. Not sure when they will fill in the hole and re-open the pub...

A top joint, great drop of New on tap, and there's nothing like grilling your own steak. Some mugs, but nothing to worry about. Great spot for a lunchtime middy after shopping and paying bills up the junction.
