As a boy growing up in the 'Loo I sold newspapers to the locals in all pubs for Berry's newsagent. I remember the so called WBH to be the Macquarie Hotel, nick-named the Rock n Roll. That hotel was lively then. Woolloomooloo was a great place to grow up. Change has obviosly killed its spirit. Shame on you Sydney So much history and you destroy it. Progress you say. I can only see regression. Shame, Shame.

I drank at the WBH for 3 years 95-98. I went back in 2000 and was disgusted that it had lost it's edge. WBH was an old sailors pub with good food, drinks and live music, I don't know what went wrong but it sucks now.

So I'm interested on what constructive criticisms there may be out there for the WBH staff and management

Hotel policey once it changed hands from Jf to Murphy management group is "Staff are NOT permitted to drink in the hotel when off duty", and as far as I know it hasnt changed. The bar ha sdeffintly gone down hill since 2000, but Bells still rocks. Ps Hopefully WBH have sacked the fag GM he was more trouble than he was worth (pretentious Queen)

I have never worked there, although some nights did seem like hard work. Sunday bands was a great idea, the main reason it didnt work was the WBH only was getting 1 good one and 4 bad so it would never pick up. Conspiracy theory?, I think so......Dont go looking for Agent Orange.

This is what a pub should be. A bit of everything for everyone.

MR, I did work in the WBH. I moved to Woolloomooloo in June and started drinking in there. At the end of November beginning of December I got a job working behind the bar. So between Nov/Dec until March I did not drink in the WBH instead I spent most of my time in The Bells. I started drinking back in the WBH once I had left the job.

Emma from Redcar England
Lived just a couple of roads behind the WBH so I made it my local watering hole along with the Bells Hotel. I ended up working behind the bar in Nov 2000 til March 2001. Made some great mates whilst driking/working in there. The Bay will have a special place in my heart.

Norman from Redcar England
Got stuck in the bar gambling my hard earned money on the Horses and Dogs.Good nosh and friendly people.Daughter Emma worked behind the bar.Befriended Ray and his son who appear to be stalwarts of the place. Have one on me chaps.See you in 2003 for Rugby World cup may bring Emma with me. Any chance of a job

Found it by accident when just looking for a beer and food one night. Nice atmosphere, welcoming staff and good value food.
