Your kidding from arent you
Krystal (the name says it all) and Sarah are the hench-b**ches of the wholly detestable mail-order-bride skanky ex-publican.

Hmmm . .. the comment from the North shore bunch confuse me! Oddly enough the much loathed ex-publican Bev just happened to reside in those parts. Bye Bev may you get your just desserts in the level of hell reserved for people like you.

Too slow folks, the Random Bar is Gone! As is the much detested Publican. Like the old saying goes "A fish stinks from the head" and this publican-ess was a fine example. Her unbelievable behaviour was only bettered by her choice of staff who managed to take crap service to a whole new and crappier level. The place has a lick of paint thrown over it and a new and immediately forgettable name . . . unfortunately this pub has not been worth a visit since the mid 1990's (when it was the Brittania for a while) though that may change with the new folk in charge. Yup, not new owners, just new management and as a "local" . . well, I dont care as there are more than a few excellent pubs in the area.

I love the fact that you guys sell beer and other forms of alcohol, keep it up! What happened to that girl who used to work there, her name was Opal or Ise or something...?

after having lived in way to close proximity to this shithole for near 12 months, I can say with some authority that this is one of the shittest pubs in sydney. go down the street to a real pub for god's sake, the only thing this pub's got going for it is the second rate juke box they finally put in, that is when the second rate djs aren't "spinning vinyl" (or using their cd mixers or whatever). crap service, crap music, crap atmosphere. and what's the deal with the freakin lion?

Well, the licensee walks around like she’s smelling a pungent pile of shit. The word 'loyalty' does not exist in the establishment. Staff Attitude: get your drink, and leave me the f**k alone! Great place to get drunk after work. Definitely not a place I would consider going to otherwise! Can count on friendly locals to provide a good atmosphere. Triv nights aren't bad either.

Can't go past a good happy hour. It has a great atmosphere, the food and service are great. Especially from the lovely Punky (She knows who she is). I know I'll be back.

considering its such a smi scummy area, the random bar is full of class class and more class. Great place on weekends for everyone, great bistro (yum yum) and cheap and its also great for uni students during the day coz its just down the road!
