Glenmore Hotel is a casual, relaxing, popular pub that overlooks Sydney’s iconic area of Circular Quay and the Rocks. Glenmore Hotel offers two bars of indoor and outdoor areas. Their main bar offers traditional bar experience with bistro style food and beverages. Their roof top bar is even more spectacular boasting city views and an extensive drinks list. This is a very good venue for parties and functions.
Told categorically NO BOOKINGS…not so when we got there
Called a week before our regular large girls catch up group. Was told categorically it was not possible to reserve a space for ANY functions on the rooftop. So, we make a concerted effort for 3-4 of us to get there good and early to secure a space as people leave. We arrive, only to find 1/2 the rooftop reserved from 4pm. As we arrived, they were moving everyone out of this space leaving no where to even stand let alone sit in the remaining space. The non-reserved areas was literally shoulder to shoulder ....hardly the service or encouragement to come again. (Later found Squires Landing must have done well out of it - out groups and another 2 ended up there - and with better views.)
Climbing the mountain of stairs was akin to climbing Everest. Especially at the end of a pub crawl...
I refrained from asking are we there yet after the first flight of stairs.
However once you make it to the rooftop it's worth the view. No really, that's why I've given this place 4 stars. The views of the harbour are amazeballs.
They have quite a few beers on tap as well, cider included.
I heard interesting things about the mens room, but alas, not being a man I couldn't go in for a sticky beak.
All in all, it's a pub, it has beer... it doesn't have sticky floors!!
Go and check out the view, will have to remember to go back to try the food.
A very busy pub with a rooftop bar,which is there main attraction
Been here twice and recently,food came out at a reasonable time,Prices a little high and food average
My teriyaki burger was nothing special and pork ribs weren't bad. Fish and chips looked smallish
You come here for the view and atmosphere
Seriously, I don't think I have ever seen this place when it has not been packed to the brim, especially on the rooftop bar, but then again I am not at all surprised since it does afford an awesome view of the city. I decided to come here for lunch, and I have to say that the prices are quite reasonable, however I ordered the Fish and Chips and I must say that the fish was way too battered for my taste, though the chips were still quite nice. However what is great about this pub is the view, though as I have suggested, every time I have been here it has been packed out to the point where there is a wait list for tables. I was lucky that I was by myself which meant that I got the table next to the door. I suspect half the reason of the crowds is because every time I have been here it has been a Friday.
