About Fortune of War Hotel: 

The Fortune of War dates from 1828 and is Sydney's oldest pub.

Whilst retaining its old world charm and hamper style bar, the hotel has built an enviable reputation, with tourists and locals alike, for providing warm traditional service in a cozy, heritage bar.

As the oldest continuously licensed public hotel in Sydney the Fortune of War is embodied in the history of Sydney.

The bar has a "colourful" reputation, which includes being the first and last port of call of generations of Australian soldiers involved in theatres of conflict. The Fortune of War has a long term reputation as a popular "first and last stop ashore" for sailors and the troops of the Australian Armed Forces who were to experience the 'fortune of the war' when they departed Sydney Cove to defend their country.

It can get a bit cramped in there, but it's got a lot of history and has great service.
