I made a return visit to the Sheaf in November, following a crawl of pubs in the Borough Market area. My experience was very similar to last time, with the place being crowded. Tables had lots of uncollected glasses on them. Ales were Hammerpot Shooting Star, Navigation Patriot, North Cotswold Tumbling Jack, Upham Boomerang & Redcar Golden Ale & Autumn Ale. I recall having the Autumn Ale, which wasn't the best.

Some interesting history of the site;-

Or is it? There are now two bars at this address, under this building: the other is the Katzenjammers bier keller. So which was the dive bar in times gone by?

Full of suited after work lager drinkers. Tried two ales - both in woefully dead condition.

My first ever visit to this GBG listed pub that is neatly tucked away underneath the Hop Exchange.

Came here to tick it & also to watch the Champions League final. Just before 7.30pm and the pub is pretty packed.

Plenty of bar staff on so getting served was not a problem.

10 ales across the pumps, split into 2 lots of 5. I went for pints of Frog Island Lock, Stock, Barrel @ 4.0%, a decent pint and I decided to stay on this for the whole evening.

Good manager who gave us a couple of free burgers while the game was on.

Decent crowd enjoying the footie, good ales, plenty of choice so the Sheaf is worthy of a 2nd visit.

Finally got the chance to visit the Sheaf last night after awarding it a 0/10 on my last try in December 2012. The good news is that it was open last night. So I can now upgrade my score. It was however packed and too busy for a comfortable drink. Acorn Barnsley Bitter, Nethergate Growler Bitter, Flipside Golden Sovereign, Calvors Smooth Operator, Redcar Autumn Ale, Fullers London Pride & Olivers Island, Ramsgate Gadds Number 5, Youngs Bitter & Milestone Optimism were the ales. When I enquired if they had any real ciders, the barmaid looked at me as if I'd just landed from the planet Zog. I opted for the Gadds Number 5 when only Aspalls and Strongbow were offered. TVs show live sport. Boxing was showing. There are 2 dart boards in one corner, which were actively being used. This is clearly more of a late night venue and was far too busy for my liking. I'll upgrade my score to 5/10. But there are many more better options in this area to make this a regular haunt.
