Well, here I am again. It's been well over a year since I was here last and tonight I happened to be in the area for a Curry Run and thought I'd come on down and sample the Wireless internet access. It's fast, as you'd expect, and thankfully the pub isn't too packed. The soundtrack's a bit questionable, but I'm living with it. Same mixed crowd as last time, I see. Some crusty old geezers, smatterings of smartly dressed city types, a tourist or two, a couple of pool players giving it stick, not a lot else. I'm just checking out the bar menu and it looks pretty good, Oysters, Nibble Plates, Cheese plates and Steaks, but I shan't partake since tonight is curry night. Quite pleasant here.

Definitely the friendliest staff in town. A nice place to watch a rugby game and good location with it being just up the hill from the crazy Rocks area. I definitely recommend it. Try the Potato Wedges!

I work up the road from this pub, and we quite often come in on Thursdays for a few drinks. They use to have a band 'Soap Opera' playing every week, and they were great..I cant understand why they got rid of bands like this and put in Original Bands. These sort of pubs people really want to hear songs they know. The old format worked alot better, and this obviously showed with the crowds they use to get in.

I have been to a number of pubs across Australia as a backpacker and found the Harborview to be one of my favorites. They had a fantastic band playing (The REdbeans I think) and a great atmosphere. I'll be recommending the pub and the band to any of my backpacker friends who are spending time in Sydney!
