SydneyPubGuide review : Chopper's Nuts
On Bar 333:
Dropped in for lunch. Yes, it was a Tuesday, so was not expecting a crowd. First impression as I walked in, was modern cafe - no real pub feel at all. lots of glass frontage and stainless steel. Toilets a good 3 flights of stairs down from the bar - which could be problematic later at night. Food prices seemed reasonable, but my colleague warned me off, saying it is decent however a lot of the selection was from frozen packets (he was served Asian starters where some were still frozen). So the lunch meeting became a couple of drink catch up - so I guess they missed out on 4 lunches from our group. Beer prices were $4.40 for a schooner of local beer - as usual for that end of the city.

Sorry to hear about the Rive following the Pokie path - new owners recently, so I was waiting to see how it went. It is a shame as it is one of the true "locals" of Balmain - and it would be a shame to see it go own the path some of the other pubs have taken.

Decided to drop into this pub about 2 weeks back. It was 4.15 pm and I had a meeting in the city at 6.00pm. Kicked back for an hour there. The DJ was spinning a few tracks which I liked, the place was well decked out, and if memory serves me correctly the beers were in the $3 to $4 range, however only two on tap - Stellas and Coopers. I would drop in again, especially if I wanted to meet someone in a quite relaxed place - however the one issue was that from 4.15pm until about 5.30pm there was me, the DJ and the Barman. I will probably check it out again one Thursday night and see if there are more people.

On OneWorld Sport Darling Harbour:
Being a sport fan I like the idea of the sports - I just haven't patronised it enough. First visit many moons ago, had a drunken friend swan diving into the water out the front - ambulance, hospital, neck brace and 35 stitches later, my first memory wan't good - but my mate was dickhead - not the place itself. Have dropped in a few times to watch sport lately and it is a good chilled place to watch whatever sporting event is being screened. Major sporting events (FA cup finals, Rugby World Cups, Germany 2006, Champions League) will see the place packed to the rafters.

On Jackson's On George:
Of the four levels, only one is really worth checking out and that is the ground level bar off George St. Many different ales to try, atmosphere can be anywhere from a few suits after work, til the later hours where English and Irish accents are heard from every table. As to the upper levels - forget about them, generally crap, and the lower level for pokies.

There is nothing which has been yet contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn : Samuel Johnson -
