About the Pub

A famous largely unspoilt old Melbourne house opened in 1842. There is a blue plaque for Archbishop John Potter who grew up here when it was a draper's shop. An arched, tiled fa├žade leads into this compact city centre local, where there is a warm welcome and comfy interior with many photographs of old Wakefield adding to the proper pub feel. The Rock has been a bastion of comfort for the ale drinkers of Wakefield and now offers three guest beers. Drinkers are encouraged to suggest beers they would like to try.
