Now, if you feel like you don’t want to miss out on the action in the streets of the Rocks, bring your family and friends to our alfresco area for a meal before you explore, sip on your favourite drink & admire the lights of the cityscape

Kitchen open: 11:30am – late

Walk-ins only: Indoor & Outdoor seating


We’re relocating our bistro!

Welcome to our new Fortune of War Lock Up, located at 127 George Street. A venue that holds our history and reputation with a fascinating combination of who we are now after 196 years of operation.

It’s the perfect spot for a casual lunch or a fun night out. In the late 1800s this building was a police station in the infamous Little Canton Area. The dining rooms, kitchens and cocktail nooks may look like a place to have a great time now, but they were once holding cells, change rooms, muster rooms and police offices!

Hearty pub fare is served daily from 11:30 am, with a different selection of wines, beers and cocktails for a perfect day out.


Monday 1st July – Sunday 28th July
