Bald Rock Hotel

Also known as: Bald Rock Hotel

Located in Rozelle and overlooking Sydney Harbour, The Bald Rock is the oldest continually licensed venue on the peninsula.
The Bald Rock opened in 1876 and if these original sandstone walls could talk, they would tell you of a colourful history filled with stories of underhand business, the smuggling of bootleg liquor through a secret tunnel leading to Sydney harbour and even horses drinking beer.

These days, The Bald Rock enjoys a reputation for being one of the most popular pubs on the Balmain Peninsula. The family owned pub has seen many changes, much like the formerly working class, industrial area which it calls home. The team behind the Bald Rock is dedicated to restoring it to its original glory, with rustic charm.

Best known for excellent food prepared by Head Chef Ben Palmer, live music from local artists and friendly bar staff reminiscent of pub-days gone by, The Bald Rock is the perfect place to catch up with family and

It's always fun to go here. I feel as though hubby and I are the only people in this town without pay TV, which is Ok most of the time, but sometimes there is a sporting match you can't watch on free to air stations. So we came here last weekend, even though the rugby match was on free Tv. Pretty corner location and nice renovation. New menu installed means a few new choices and if you like steak then you will be happy to know they are still a key item on th menu. Good beer of course, it's a pub!

The Bald Rock is one of the hidden gems of the Peninsular. Whilst a little out of the way this is walking distance for me and pretty much my local. A recent renovation has resulted in a cleaner vibe. Food is fantastic and weekly trivia a good little initiative to encourage locals to become regulars. A great option in Balmain

The architecture of the pub is lovely, and you can sit down outside where you have a really nice spot. Food was so-so

This pub has great food and a lovely outdoor area. Last night we also discovered they have $10 steaks on Monday & Tuesday nights. The $10 steak is 200g rump, scotch fillet or T-bone with delicious crispy beer battered chips & salad, or mash & veges. They also have a 400g rump with a pint of beer for only $15. Other meals here are at the more pricey range of pub food - but very tasty.

Cute little old school pub. The food isn't great but it's very welcoming. Has a decent area outside to enjoy afternoon ales. Inside can get on the nose a little as locals' dogs are pretty much allowed to roam the venue. Only adds to the character.
