Eating Out: The Glenmore Hotel in Sydney

The Glenmore Hotel is located in the heart of The Rocks, and has been an icon of Sydney’s bar and dining scene since it first opened in the 1920s. It is one of the last buildings on Cumberland Street that pre-dates the erection of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and its colonial old-English charm has made it a popular watering hole that has survived wars, depressions and plagues. Nowadays, the building is heritage-listed, and a fantastic place to grab a drink and a bite to eat.

Head up to the rooftop to take in panoramic views of Sydney Harbour. Enjoy a meal in the sun with a gorgeous city backdrop, or watch the lights of the CBD glisten during the evening. The roof is retractable, so you can enjoy the area in rain, hail or shine.

The menu features a mix of flavours from around the world; from Asian-style dishes and dumplings, to Mexican tacos, Italian pastas and of course, Aussie pub classics like burgers or fish and chips. There are small plates to share, larger meals and a selection of delicious sweets to finish your meal.

There are three levels of drinking and dining at The Glenmore, including a cocktail bar and several different spaces that are perfect for private functions. Whether you’re planning a casual lunch, or looking to celebrate a big event, The Glenmore is the perfect location.
