History

The pub was built in 1860 on the corner of Darling and Ann Streets to cater for workers from nearby Mort Bay. In 1876 the building became a grocery, perhaps due to the competition of the nearby and larger Pacific Hotel and London Hotel. Its licence was transferred to the Unity Hall Hotel, then on the corner of Nicholson and Darling Streets East Balmain, now Oddfellows Hall, until 1910, when it lapsed.

In 2000 it became a trattoria and café, currently called Ciao Thyme.
