We note the Shannon as one of the few pubs in Central Sydney with a dartboard - we know of only a couple of others. It's friendly, homely, and another local pub where appearances matter little.

Dominated in the main bar by a large circular stained glass window (where the stage is for live music), it's a very informal and friendly joint. There are two pool tables for a quick game of stick, but if you're more into the whisper of the feathered flight, the dartboard is at the foot of the stairs. There's a bistro menu available, but on our most recent visit we were invited to partake of delivery pizza courtesy of the locals! top quality and a good place to head for if you're skint and in the area.

For a local, it's a good spot for a quiet game of pool or darts - but I probably wouldn't make a long trip for it. There's better in the area.

What a miserable place. Filthy and full of drunk losers. I'd go around the corner to the Rose or any other pub for that matter. The only thing in its favour is that it makes you really appreciate a good pub.
