This expansive pub has a reputation as a meat market, and, well, it seems to deserve it, to an extent. Everyone here has a bit of money, they're single, and they're on the look out.

It's easy to believe this is one of the busiest pubs in Sydney. Well, it's certainly vying for the title of largest pub in Sydney, with at least four bars (and some parts unexplored by the team) and an enormous courtyard taking the overspill from the crowded bars. Catch it on a weeknight when the offices empty and you're likely to have trouble getting to the bar for suits.

It's a little on the pricey side, but if you're looking to pick up a high earner, try it out!

PubGoer from Balmain
Not a better place in North Sydney in summer than sitting in the courtyard having a few quite ales after work. Crowd changes drastically after 7.30pm on Thursday - entirely made up of high school girls and uni guys (and very crowded). For the business guy, a great pub for weekday lunches (if you have the cash) or the summer ale in the courtyard straight after work. For the younger ones - Thursday nights onward after 7.30pm. Also have sounds on Sunday for the recovery if required.

Secret tip: If you learn to say "Ok, yaah" with just the right intonation, your success with the ladies (or the men, if that's your thing - not that there's anything wrong with that) will rise in an exponential manner. Actually it's a bit more like sin^2x/tan, but I'm splitting atoms here, when I should be damaging braincells at the Greeny!

trendy guy from paris baby
B spiky gelled hair isnt in but i get what your trying to say. anyone that says this place is the bomb means that they have no concept of what somewhere good should be like..its for n00bs just out of high school hwo want somewhere cool to go but have no idea of anything good so just interpret this place as cool..chicks are hot but u have to be decent looking like me to bag one of them in the bathroom..or some of the chicks are completely off their head which mean u can convince them to come back to your house and screw them...other than that...losers who dont know any better.

GW lacks individualilty... Every guy looks the same with their stripy shirts, trendy designer jeans and diesel shoes everywhere. Dont forget the spikey gelled hair too

Great place for hitting on fresh hot 18 y.o. gals. You wouldnt want to be at gw all night tho as it does get boring and repeditive. Unless of course youve had 15 schooners

yeh I love teenwoody early in the evening but it does peter out as it gets late!

Siobahn from Sydney
Naturally people like 'Pepita from Mosman' would find somewhere like the greenwood a good place to go because like most of the people there, I can only assume that she is fresh out of her elitist private school and finances her night from mummy and daddys credit card. Its people like Pepita that make us mere mortals feel inadequate at a place like the greenwood whereeverything is overpriced and everyone looks like a model.

The Greenwood is the only place worth going to in North Sydney on a Thursday night. I have not once had a bad time there. It's full of my kind of people I like that fact that I go there and know so many people. Yeahh perhaps it is a little superficial but thats all part of it. Its awesome.

Duh Andy from Sydney, it's actually an old schoolhouse, not a church. In terms of the pub, I've been drunk at this place once too often to take it seriously.

Man formerly known as "Pub Bludger" from Australia
There are alot of comments here so obviously its popular. Yes i have been here, I will make a comeback here oneday as soon as I get out of my dunlop volleys so watch out ladys. Oh! be wary of woollongong girls it's a little to far to come for a night out i think!

Eh from Sydney
This place is the biggest private school hang, you can spot 5 years worth of 1st XV players from Kings, Joeys and Scots all over the place. If you went to a GPS school go here on a thursday night and you will surely see someone from your year there.

frank from westville town
tyler you are out of order. your are the lowest i get filthy whores non stop all the time. and i am talking dirty trash whores. like the G. go back to gordo's.
date unknown

tyler from cuirl curl
this derro i know from uni picks up the filthiest whores of all time at greenwood. girls beware of 'frank' the commerce/law student from macquarie !
date unknown

tyler from clovelly
It is a class venue full of nice chicks. However the posers from GPS schools think the own the place, and this can potentially be the scene for drunken fights with rich punks living out of mummy and daddy's pockets
date unknown

Cara from Wollongong
Woo prepared for all those nose snorting, joint smoking ferals that pack the place full of their crap house techno music....other than that its a great place!

Andy from Sydney
Sounds on Sunday is a fantastic day dance party at Greenwood. What is not mentioned in the review is that the Greenwood is a lovely old church converted to a pub. Quite special.
date unknown

dave from sydney
alsome! love happy hour!
date unknown

Sarah from Artarmon
I found it to be very superficial. Somewhat daunting for recently turned 18 year olds. But I suppose if you're a size 8 (instead of 12 or 14), then this is the place for you.
date unknown

Cecilia from McMahons Point
This is my fave friday night hang out - highly recommended to all you groovy pubgoers out there!
