More pubs in Balmain & Rozelle >>

A handsome sandstone building on Darling Street in Balmain, The London is a perennially popular place for Balmain locals and weekenders. Last time we were in Balmain was a weekend - we approached the pub but it was really something of a lost cause - there was no way we were battling through the number of people crammed into this place. Second attempt however, on a Tuesday night met with more success.

It's an intimate little pub, all dark wood and dusty light - you get the impression everyone in the building can hear your conversations, but it doesn't stop you blabbing on regardless. After al, you can hear what they're talking about...

The restaurant at back looks neat, there are a few pool tables, but mostly the emphasis is on conversation. a very convivial spot for a few.

Good venue, though the air-conditioning is nipple-hardening cold.

St Augustine from Balmain
Single mans paradise, full of 30 somethings looking for a man, any man ! Seriously though, this is a top little venue that retains, thank God, some of that old Balmain character. Now when will we see the Cricketers Arms back ?

Great pub, large range of beers, nice staff. Grab a seat on the balcony (if possible, it gets a bit crowded).

Situated in a beautiful building, best place for people spoting on the verandah facing Darling St. with an import beer in hand. Also suggest eating the London Burger - best pub burger ever!
