Looking for a place to spend a night in the city to save me a long drive home after a band i had tickets to see I stumbled across the Lord Wolseley on this very website the evening before. Every kind words that have been previously said about this hidden treasure is true.

The owners and staff were super friendly and helpful, making the place feel like a home away from home by the time i'd finished my first schooner (which, being a tenant for the night, was on the house!). Striking up some banter with the locals I found they were not only open and friendly but very knowledgeable in the important topics of music and horse racing. A shared Nachos with my friend who joined me for the experience was tasty and filling. The beer was cold and crisp and well-priced for the city.

The room was clean and comfortable and i had no problems sneaking in a much-needed extra half hours sleep after the designated check out time, the morning crew were very understanding. Couldn't resist slipping in a couple of schooners of Old and spinning a few tunes on the jukebox after my morning coffee just to soak up a bit more of that lovely Lord Wolseley feeling (even when empty at 11am) before my departure.

All-in-all the place was perfect for my needs of the occasion and i totally recommend this pub unless you are partial to modern sterility & expensive beer in small glasses.

I've been here on a couple of occasions and thoroughly enoyed it. Aparently it is also the narrowest pub in Sydney

My band was recording a CD down in Jones street and the call came to go grab some beer. We found the Lord Wolseley and found it damn hard to leave the place. Great pub, great staff that greeted you with a real smile and it looked and smelled like a great restaurant too. I've always wanted to visit the Lord Wolseley when driving past, and now I'm happy to say that I have. My band had just returned from a 8 week European and English tour and we played in some similar pubsthat really made you feel at home. That community spirit. Please, please, please don't ever change this pub's look and feel.

Nice, quiet little pub. Definitely has benefitted from being a bit off the beaten track. Nice little local, it's a toss-up between this and Quarryman's for a quick drink after work.

I used to live around the corner from this pub and really enjoyed popping in for a quick one. It's situated right next to a park (to the left of the photo) and the bar staff were happy to let you sit on the benches and have a drink outside -so long as you bought your glasses in!- which was fantastic on a summers day. Great, friendly little pub for a quiet drink.

Thank you for your kind words. Please note that the suburb is Ultimo not Pyrmont. We do welcome families especially in our brand new Italian restuarant. As we always say it is our pleasure to serve you. Regards, Frank.
