When I first moved to Sydney, this was as far as we got in Newtown. Anything further on was Terra Incognita as far as I was concerned. On my first night out in newtown, this was our last pub, and we didn't stay for all that long.
Shame we didn't really, because although we're not overly fond of pubs with prominent pokies and TAB facilities, upstairs at the Town Hall has a more friendly feel. It's well fitted out, carpeted and chromed as you'd expect. In fact, after I discovered there was more to Newtown than this, the Town Hall became a stop off on the way further, or even a starting point.
We certainly don't think it's the best pub in the area, oh no, but it's certainly not one to avoid if you're around. Locals seem to like it a lot. On more than one occassiona we've kicked ourselves for missing the start of the pub quiz too, since every time we've been for that it's seemed to be pretty good.
We really need to review it from a more objective viewpoint, but for now, let's say we like it.
