“More sandstone...And evidence that good things really do come in small packages.”
— Simon Webster, Sydney Morning Herald
“There are no strangers, just friends you haven’t met yet at the Bald Rock Hotel.”
— Pubs and Clubs

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 friends.
