Excellent range of craft beers and ciders. The food is pretty decent too - I had the salmon last time I went and it was very well cooked - moist but with a nice crunchy skin. the chips are always excellent and the atmosphere cosy, convivial and fun. On Monday nights, you can exercise your brain with a bit of trivia. The roof terrace is excellent on a hot afternoon/evening and to hire for a special summer event.

Excellent for both beer a food. This place was recommended to me by a friend for the burgers. After walking in, I was taken in by the old time decor as well as the extensive pub menu and beers on tap. If you're a dark beer fan, this place is for you! A great place to get a dark beer and a pulled pork burger on a Thursday night with the guys. Although, a friend did get the beef burger which comes with the lot and a beer battered onion ring, which definitely let me know what to get next time!

The sheer height of the burger at The Local Taphouse is worth the price of admission alone. It truly is a monster and much debate will be had about the best way to consume it. Do you man-up and go for a two-handed vulture while nonchalantly discussing the weekend footy? Or are you more “proper", opting to cut it in half before launching into a diatribe of the market activity of the day? Then there are the deconstructors amongst us, elaborately picking apart each layer while waxing lyrical with philosophical musings. The options appear endless but one thing is for sure, you will consume this monster! I had almost given up on The Local. For years it made my favourite burger then something just went wrong. The rumour was that the manager got fired by the owner (drugs apparently) and he was so liked by his staff that they all quit in solidarity. The result was a kitchen nightmare with my first return visit resulting in a poorly cooked cold burger and on the second occasion we didn’t get our food for over two hours. I had avoided the place for a few years but my recent visit showed a true return to form: the best burger is back! Where to start on this mammoth? The smoked ale beef patty is blessed with Gruyere cheese and 2 Pilsner battered onion rings for a superb crunch, topped with a simple salad and aioli. It’s spectacular. For sides you get hand-sliced roasted vegetables made up of potatoes, pumpkin and sweet potato. If you’re unsure about which of the burgers to get, you can grab a trilogy of sliders covering the smoked beef, the pulled pork and roast field mushroom. Variety is the spice of life, right? Though the best part of the burgers, of course, is the abundant selection of beer with which to wash it down. The honey-ale goodness of Birrificio San Paolo was my pick of the tap beers, of which there are numerous. Ask the friendly bar staff their current favourites and they are only too eager to divulge. There’s no denying that The Local has returned to form - I’ve been there twice in a week and each occasion has been memorable. Go there for the burgers and I promise you’ll stay for the beers.

The Local Taphouse is a beer lover's dream, with a huge selection of standard and boutique beers. Given that the target audience is beer drinkers, the bar food matches this with burgers, and deep fried deliciousness - things that go best with a cold one.

Do you like beer? I mean proper beer, not your standard VB rubbish? Well, if so, this is the place for you. They only keep one or two beers as regulars, the rest are bought in on an ad-hoc basis, so the beer list is constantly evolving and changing. Also, while it is spread over three levels, with a great roof terrace, it doesn't feel like one of those awful large hotel pubs. Really well decked out, this is far and away the best pub in Sydney. Seriously.

The beer selection is great, for a Sydney pub, especially if you're a fan of both local and international craft beers. If I was rating the Local Taphouse just on its beer, it would get a solid 4.5/5. However, we made the error of ordering food. I really liked the chunky cut sweet potato and regular potato combination they call fries, but my Local Burger as dry and parts of my meal fell off the plate, literally, twice. The onion rings were too heavily battered - stodgy and sludgy rather than light and crispy. The aioli was just awful - white goop with no flavour. Add to this that the music during our visit was far too loud and distracting. We weren't the only ones who left because of it. I really, really wanted to love this place, but as it stands I'll find it hard to motivate myself to go back despite my love of craft beer.

Nice rooftop bar. good vibes and music. the food was not to bad at $15-$20 on average. they have a big selection of beer on offer. i had a 9% alcohol pint! looked like black coffee but was not to bad! i would recommend it. it gets a bit cold so make sure to bring along a jacket if its winter.

If it is beer you want, then The Local Taphouse it is. With around 30ish beers on tap (maybe more) you can't go passed this joint. They are beers from everywhere, from Australian microbreweries, Belgian Tapestry beers and good old german ales. Great for a pre-footy drink or post. The burgers here are great, i recommend the pulled pork one in particular.
