those of you who've read our earlier review may have noticed a little mention of the Hero's secret passageway down to the harbour. Well, SydneyPubGuide.net can report that, yeah, it's really there. A very drunken visit with upcoming contributor Andy Price, formerly of Swanse, Old South Wales ended up with a guided tour of the historic underside of the pub with Patrick, our friendly barman. The secret passageway, unfortunately, is now blocked, this being the age of reason and all, but downstairs the cellar holds other relics of a bygone age. Punishment cells now hold tanks of gas and kegs of beer, wrought iron gates still hang on rusting hinges and history lives alongside the modern technology of beer delivery. Back upstairs we meet character after character and have a great night in the Hero, which is pretty much our favourite pub in this part of the city.

The greatest pub in town! Get there when the band is playing for a delightful experience. The beer is great, the history untold, the atmosphere medieval-like, and the staff was friendly too. I loved it!!!

We've been a couple of times when they've had an Irish folk band. The staff and the regulars were very friendly and invited us to join in the dancing. We had a terrific afternoon both times.
