BEWARE!!!!
So I've been a local at this pub on and off for over 10 years and tonight I was let down by the on site manager whom has always previously been excellent. I ordered a schooner of beer and had to pop outside immediately after ordering it and said to the bar staff "Would you mind keeping the beer behind the bar for a few minutes, I'll be back shortly".

I returned in under five minutes and the on duty manager picked up my beer to hand it to me. I politely asked, "Can you give it a squirt of beer from the tap to freshen it up?" to which she said NO!

I was gobsmacked!!! I asked why, to which she replied I was apparently asking for extra beer when the glass was reasonably full already. I attempted for a sense of reason that to spurt a small amount of beer and a bunch of gas into the beer to freshen it up is not only at a cost of less than 15 cents AU it's also a standard request in pubs internationally! I spent over $50 AU in the hotel.
Eventually she conceded with extreme reluctance and massive attitude which I'm sure you'll agree is completely out of touch with any bar keeping unwritten rules!
Ask yourself this, if you leave a beer at a bar and ask a bartender to freshen it up if you come back after 5 minutes it's a given, not a cost to the hotel.
Marks out of ten tonight...minus ten!

Update:
Spoke qith management and they sorted out a refund of the difference promptly

Update:

Checked my bank account and saw they charged me full price of $23, definitely changed my review and not worth the price at all for what the food was

-------------
Had a cheap $15 rump steak and chips for the lunch special

Steak was a little over done but medium is better than well done, had a nice char to the beef and fat, chips were crispy, salad was dressed

It hit the spot for pub grub. Kiwi behind the bar seems unwelcoming, ambience was dull

I have been in Sydney for work. Each week when I'm doing my laundry I come here for a beer. The staff are so friendly and I'll certainly miss this routine now that I'm heading home. Thanks for making a chore as boring as the laundry so enjoyable ???'?

I am hanging out in this play place for long time all staff are ok leaving one manager Darcy . She is doing racism to Asian people and I have heard from lot of my friends and they prefer to go somewhere other venue then this one.. she just don't want any customers to come and hang out .. I am not taking her personal but this manager is very uneasy to customer. Thank you

Decided to have drinks at the local and the atmosphere was bright and contemporary, with a trendy décor for casual hangout. The menu offered some classic pub dishes and a selection of cocktails. The staff were friendly and attentive.

Went for Karaoke night with friends. We had a great time, we'll be back.

The staff were helpful, the bathrooms clean, and the food basic but good.

Tonight 23/2/2023, out to enjoy karaoke and friends. A phone was found on the table behind me by one of my friends. We took the phone thinking it was a mate's phone who had just left. A blond staff member just took the phone and ok put it behind the bar. Then my friends and I discussed that it might have been our mates phone who had left. So I went up to the bar and asked if I could take it back because we thought it was our mates phone. His mates that he lives with was at my table. I got a no. Then the female bar manager, approached my table I was at and said the phone wasn't our mates and said I yelled at her. I had to yell because of the loud karaoke noise.
So I then asked her if she was calling me a thief, she said yes and in front of witnesses, my friends. Then she said that's my last drink( mind you 2 almost 3) and I had to leave. Sorry but this person does not have customer skills, and has a reputation for being a bully. So this is why don't go there when this manager is on. I've been going to this joint for 30 years, off and on. I've never been treated like this by any past staff member/s throughout these years. I'm 68 don't need to be spoken to like that by someone who hasn't done "the hard yards" in life.

PROBLEM Hotel Rockdale has a standing up table right in front which means that anyone... which is most people sitting on the booths can't see the Karoke performers.

The bar manager made all sorts of excuses but ultimately it is a really bad design. ??'?

The upgrade of this establishment from when it was the St George Tavern has been nothing short of outstanding. Bright, clean, airy and stayed true to its art deco origins. Staff are friendly and obliging. The bistro is good value with a great mix of dishes available.

Food portions was way too small for the price, bistro serving is a bit weird looking through the kitchen with a shelf in the way. Food quality was okay, sitting area were clean

Disappointed last night Thursday 30th June 2022. I love to go and sing karaoke at this place. I played pokies and lost over $100 I asked for a hot chocolate. I was told no hot chocolates it's not a cafe!! Unbelievable customer service. I told the guy even the worst looking pub offers hot chocolate and earl grey tea. He was rude!!! !!!! Never going back here!!!

I remember getting RSAd from this place a few years ago because I left with a drink to go next door while I was living there. My partner was working here. Was a pretty tragic event as it resulted in a ban.

Went the other night and the vibe hasn't changed. Lots of people sizing you up, staff staring you down - most likely because the licensee is a hyena - and just generally uncomfortable.

It only gets 3 stars because I know what the staff go through first-hand.

Havent been there for a few years, only to return this week for a quick drink. The licensee remembered my name and what my drink was and took the time to ask how I have been. The staff (a bloke and a girl) where always friendly and engaging. Ended up staying for lunch and a few more drinks. Would come back again!

Really disappointed today. My mate and me plan to have nice drink and dinner after all we are very fresh. we grab just 1 glass of beer and JD . We played pool everything was alright. And after i order food and get back to bar to order another drink but dont know whats wrong with this bar man he replied you guys already toxic no more drinks. He even deny us to play pool and leave pub as well. Seriously bro, if you dont have knowledge of bar man then better to work where you are experience . Hope i never see this guys in this pub anymore. Never seen such rude and unprofessional bar man.

The eatery joined to the pub stopped serving food around 8pm and only accepted cash for something basic like hot chips. The bar takes credit card but the eatery doesn't. Makes no sense.

Reggie's food is the best and chef always has a cheerful smile to go with the great food. All the staff are super friendly - never had a bad experience. Highly recommended.
