Sheaf

With two boards in a dedicated arch this is a fine place to play darts.

The peculiar name stems from when the team from the Wheatsheaf in Borough Market moved here in 2009 when that pub was closed due to very large bits of railway being built on top of it – bringing the dart board with them. When the first Wheatsheaf re-opened, in 2012, there was a turf war (well as much of a turf war as you could get amongst the rye bread and ludicrously over-priced tomatoes of Borough Market), and the new Wheatsheaf lost. The photo of a dart board on the wall of the original Wheatsheaf was a nod to its own darting past, until it was removed.

 

 

Been to this pub?

Tell us when you last played there, so we know the board is still up – and do leave any interesting (clean!) stories while you’re at it.

  1. A friend and I dropped in on 8/6/16 for a pint and a few games. The two board set up is tucked away in its own bay which is somewhat akin to an air-raid shelter.

    If coming in from a bright sunny day you may need a couple of minutes to adjust to the dim environment, but once acclimatised this place is something of a gem.

    With easy access to the bar and no tables or human traffic to interrupt your throw, you can get through games pretty quickly.
