The Willy Wally claims that former Sydney ratepayer Mel Gibson was a regular in here in his pre-fame days, and they back this claim up with a signed Braveheart poster proudly displayed in the front bar. There’s no reason to doubt the claim for this is a lovely little pub, nestled in the middle of Balmain’s bohemian back streets. The bar has a ramshackle charm, from the elaborate mural on the front bar’s back wall hard up against a nest of poker machines, to the artworks that adorn the walls of the dining room whose kitchen hangs off the back like a lean-to.
