It’s not too often you come across a pub that manages to have it all. Lucky for locals of Darlinghurst and surrounds, the Lord Roberts has. You’ll find a decent selection of beer, wine and spirits at the bar, solid pub fare coming out of the kitchen, and a relaxed, friendly ambience throughout. There’s loads of space (including on the outdoor balcony) and plenty of seating. Stroll on through to the Green Door cocktail lounge for an array of well-priced cocktails – the classics alongside the hotel’s own inspired inventions (‘Papa Smurf’ anyone?). Overall, the Lord Roberts is a solid choice for a good time.
