An absolute gem for hosting events in the heart of Sydney!

Our end-of-year party at The Tilbury was beyond incredible. The electric ambience kicked off an evening filled with joy and celebration.
The fantastic and gorgeous crew, namely Tom, Vanessa, Nick and Molly, truly set the bar high with their exceptional service. Their warmth and attentiveness made us feel like honoured guests, and their enthusiasm added an extra spark to the festivities.
Our team couldn't stop raving about the fantastic vibe and the top-notch service provided. The attention to detail and the seamless coordination made our experience truly remarkable.
The food and drinks were exceptional - a delicious array of offerings that catered perfectly to our diverse group. The quality and variety surpassed expectations, leaving everyone thoroughly impressed.

Big shout-out to Ceire and Sasha for the exceptional coordination and for attending promptly to all my questions and needs.

Thank you to the entire team at The Tilbury Hotel for making our end-of-year celebration an unforgettable experience. We'll be back without a doubt and will recommend this venue wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a fantastic event space with impeccable service!

Was looking forward to having lunch here, but unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment. It's a shame because the place is really nice, the location is good, and the menu looked really promising (the ingredients were quite interesting and different; these really caught my eye). I have to say that the presentations were pretty good, but the flavour and texture combination were off, and for what they are charging, they are all just... meh. The service was pretty average as well, could be a tad more lively. We left thinking it was definitely style over substance.

A lovely experience! The food was excellent and wasn't too pricey for what you got. Our server, Vanessa, gave the impression that she truly cared about our experience, and had the knowledge to back it up!

A lively atmosphere, lovely food, and top-tier service will definitely have us returning sometime.

Wonderful place to have cocktails - Miguel, the bartender really cares about what you like and is full of good ideas to expand your drinking palate. Wonderful service. Great space. Good vibes. Thanks Miguel!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Mothers Day lunch. Food and service (thank you Molly) we're impeccable. Went for the third time for the Sunday roast. The vegetarian nut toast was moist, crunchy and a total flavour bomb. Serving sizes for meats and vegetables were so generous that we had full takeaway containers. Lamb shoulder on the bone. Crispy skin pork with barely any fat. Yum! Thank you to the staff, especially Duncan, for making us feel welcome.

Perfect Christmas lunch. The Tuna Tartare is a must try. Fresh, summer, flavours, it's the perfect dish. Every dish was understated, but overachieving. Service was perfection and the staff behind the bar were talented, friendly and generous. Thank you for the best Dirty Martini I've had since my time in NYC.

This pub is in a great location and the interior design is stun - unfortunately it lacks in every other aspect.

The service is incredibly slow, it wasn't busy when I was there so I'd probably pack a bottle of water if you go when it's packed so you can stay hydrated while you wait.

The food is average, their menu online is different to their current one, so being a vegan makes it difficult to know you have options. I let the staff know and they said they could make the yoghurt in my dish vegan (I did wonder how that was possible) - turned out making it vegan is by just not putting it on the dish.

A slice of pumpkin on some shredded cabbage on a flavourless "taco" shell was not what I call upscale pub food (picture attached for your viewing pleasure)

What made it worse is you're given a buzzer to know when your food is ready, then it's just a casual stroll to the back of the venue, up two flights of stairs and all the way back to your table - not exactly a customer focused approach.

Not saying I won't go again, I'll just adjust my expectations accordingly.

We came for some drinks since it's a bright sunny day. The place has great Alfredo areas to enjoy and the bartender Miguel is so friendly and cheerful. Great service!

We went on Tuesday for the oyster harvest series food and wine match evening, we were blown away!
The new crew are doing something really special. Ceire and the team provided outstanding service.
Chef Darrell and his colleagues in the kitchen delivered spectacular food. Was a really nice touch to have the chef come out and speak about the food and a passion working with local produce.
Well done guys, great to see the venue finally live up to what it should be, will be back for sure

Finished a beautiful lunch at China Doll with guests from WA and the 6 of us thought we'd head over to the Tilbury for a couple of drinks. We walked in and was wondering around trying to decide where we'd like to sit and this is when the lovely Theresa came up to us and offered to help us find a spot. She found us a nice sunny spot and scouted around for enough chairs. She came back later to see that we were all comfortable and enjoying the arvo drinks.
Then John the barman made us the yummiest Bellinis (he had never heard of the drink) but managed to make the best we've ever had. ??'?

A pub at heart with the inner-city chic and fine dining plastered on top.
Tilbury serves an eclectic selection of food in its menu, ranging from pork baos and lobster rolls to grilled octopus as a small plate and then onto some fine wagyu beef for a main. It's all quite tasty but there's no one theme.
There is a decent selection of wines and beers, including from the Grifter brewery in Marrickville. Cocktails are mainly gin and a more limited selection.
Staff are friendly though often in a rush (though the venue was not particularly busy on our visit).
Indoor and outdoor seating is available.
Price wise you're looking at about $10 per single item for starters, mid-20s for your small plates and then around $40-45 for your large plates. Beer is around $11 and cocktails around 23.

Facilities are clean and the venue is well lit and comfortable to move around. The dining and general drinks areas are divided by the bar itself.

Final rating 4.1/5. While tasty some of the smaller items need price or size revisions. The deserts were also very limited in selection and while not bad, not worth their price.

Amazingly creative and delicious food with a Japanese touch. Our favourites were Lobster rolls, Hokkaido scallop ceviche and barramundi with tobiko & kikurage (black fungi). The most surprising & creative (and it was tasty!) dish was Udon mushroom ragu. Friendly staff and their service was excellent. If only the restaurant had an open space atmosphere like the picture shown on their website, it was definitely a 5 star! And the cheesecake can be bit better. We loved this place and will definitely return!

A nice spot for pre-dinner drinks or a sit down meal. The cocktail list specialises in gin-based drinks, which were excellent. Not the cheapest of bars, but worth it for the experience.

Insane food, the new chef is killing it. I love the Asian fusion selection. The staff are lovely and the venue is great. Highly recommended.

Nice spot to stop for a drink. Pretty terrace and comfy seats. The staff were a little unfriendly though. I was ignored for quite some time and was about to leave when I finally got served. Had the fish and chips from the bar menu which was delicious. Be prepared to climb a fairly steep set of stairs to collect your food!

We had a friend's birthday dinner here in the restaurant section on Saturday night. They had limited vegan options on their restaurant menu, so our vegan friend ordered food from the bar menu. This man, who may have been some sort of manager, told our friend she couldn't eat her food in the restaurant, and she had to eat her food OUTSIDE Even though this is all the same venue???? When there was little to no vegan options, he said she should have ordered the risotto without cheese...
On arrival, they told me they couldn't split the bill. We then decided to order our own drinks at the bar as it was easier for us to keep track. This same man told us to stop doing this as they did table service and could do split bill. We apologised and explained this is not what we were told. After this, he would not stop staring at us from a distancing with a rude look on his face. Our friend got up to take his sister to a cab and this man started going off at him as he thought he was walking to the bar to get a drink. This man then came over to our table and went off for around 5 minutes, making the biggest scene. He would not look at me when I was talking to him telling him his behaviour was aggressive and he is making a scene in his own restaurant. He was towering over the birthday girl and would not make eye contact with the guys when he was going off. He obviously has a problem with women. The security had to come over which no staff seemed surprised by, so I think this is not the first time this man has done this. He would not apologise and just kept going. It was mortifying and I am still in shock. The rest of the staff were nice and were probably used to his foul behaviour. He definitely needs to be fired, go to anger management and learn to respect women. Wouldn't be surprised if he was on something as this behaviour was unexplainable. I have never experienced anything like this nor did anyone else from our party. Our friend started filming him which started to shut him up. He bought out a free vegan salad for our friend who had already eaten so it was a waste of food. They then tried to charge us an extra 10% as we have a group booking. This is on top of the $5 per head booking fee. They ended up waving the 10% after we had to ask.

A great spot for a casual drink with friends.
A bite to eat - delicious food and good servings.

Yummy cocktails to select from for all occasions.

A great venue with plenty of space and varied seating to enjoy a fun time with friends to unwind after a long work week or a quick catch up.

Friendly staff who always have a smile on their face.
