Say what you like about the Carrington, the guys are making an effort, and lately it's been getting busier and busier here. I don't think we can qualify it for 'busiest pub in sydney', but efforts are being made, from running Comedy Trivia on Sundays, Pie and Pint promotions, experimenting with DJ nights and functions, now there's an electronic dartboard (though why it couldn't be a real one we're not sure) We turned up for Comedy Trivia recently and had a roaring time, so there's something that should probably be retained, and maybe promoted a little more. In fact, I could quite see a pure comedy night working quite well here. Swap the electronic dartboard for a real one - get rid of the 'hook a prize' machine, stick a sofa or two up on the raised dais at the back, with a few pot plants to screen it off and this could work pretty well. Improving all the time

Lacks a little in atmosphere, but the staff are extremely friendly and relaxed, and its quietness makes it a great place to go if you don't want to battle to the bar and back all night.

It is just a simple pub to have a nice beer. No bullshit associated with it at all.

Most people hate the taste of beer to begin with. It is however a prejudice that many have been able to overcome. : Winston Churchill - more quotes...
