Republic Hotel is a contemporary pub in Sydney?s CBD. Popular with business types, it offers all you would expect from an upbeat city establishment, and more. The main bar has beer, sports and entertainment, while the plush cocktail lounge caters to more intimate nights out. Bar food is served, but for more formal dining head upstairs to Republic Dining for sophisticated bistro fare with modern Australian and French influences.

    Stopped in here after looking for a quick and easy lunch. Noticed on the board that they had a $10 Chicken Schnitzel deal and thought to myself, "Thats perfect".

    Friendly bar staff and very quick lunch service. The food was great and just as expected, great for lunch. Very pleased I walked in here. Thanks guys, keep up the good work!!!

    The Republic is supposedly popular as a drinking corner for professionals who work nearby, but that was not the reason I went there. Apparently, this place had their burgers featured in Good Food Guide, and with that in mind I decided to give it a try.

    The place is quite narrow, with large windows and doors opened for open. It has plenty of bar-style seats and cafe-style outdoor seats on its ground level, with level 2 & 3 dining area designed specifically for dining.

    As of time of writing, they have different meal deals on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with any drink purchase.

    The feature burger was priced at $10 (during Wednesday deal). I bought a lemon lime bitter which was priced at $4.10, which I think was slightly overpriced for a drink that usually costs $3.50.

    The burger contains grilled beef patty (which I believe was slightly over-grilled), slices of bacon, lettuce (not crispy), grilled onion, cheese, grated beetroot and the special savoury, orange-coloured sauce. It is quite a big burger and comes with a generous serving of fries.

    They provide self-serve condiments (including sweet chilli and mustard), although there seems to be no self-serve serviettes (the only serviettes you can see are those that are wrapped on self-served cutleries).

    The staffs are quite attentive, friendly and always present on the floor even though the crowd was yet to start when I visited.

    I find this bar or pub a little too small for my liking.

    What I do like is that the drinks are super super cold. It's like the glasses are chilled as well as the beer and soft drinks to produce the coldest drinks in Sydney. But saying that I find the down stair bar way too crowded and doesn't take many people to in bar to create a line to get a drink!

    Pokie room upstairs, but can't say I have been to the restaurant. Shame simonc22 didn't fully review the restaurant and explain why he gave it 4 stars?

    Staff are fine, but again service is flawed as the bar fills up easily and makes it very crowded. So getting to the bar and then getting severed can be a slight hassle. If your walking from Townhall or Pitt Street mall to the Quay (and didn't take George Street, why not?) this is well worth a stop in for one. But overall I wouldn't be spending my evenings here.

    No atmosphere and tried to cram too much into a small bar. Including TAB area.

    The restaurant on the top floor is top class but small restuarant with good service and a nice feel.

    A good place for a quick beer with friends after work. Friendly staff, city prices.
