Stayed in the hotel and it was exceptional. Having lived in Ealing for years and known the pub pre-refurb it seemed too good to be true, but the quality of decor, fittings and service is exemplary. I've stayed in 5 star hotels that have been far short of this quality and with smaller rooms. No noise from the pub or the roads, and one of the most enjoyable hotel stays I've had. Not only would I recommend it highly, I'm planning an excuse to stay again.
OK so I better update this review. Food used to suck now vastly improved on all fronts. Only thing that I find really annoying and its not just the Drayton.. Those little baskets of chips. Give me a break if I am going to splash out on a burger give me a few more than an handful of chips please !!!
Good Selection of beers, has the best garden of any pub I have been too. lovely interior, great events downstairs, pool table, large screens for sports, quieter section of the pub
Oh Drayton I love you I do I've spent sooo many times after work, here having a quick pint birthdays and the various leaving do's including mine were spent here.
Your such a great big pub aren't you, I've spent time in your big garden, also like the balcony you got overlooking the fantastic garden.
Also when I want a break from drinking you provide me with sporting entrainment whether its the TVs or the pool tables.
I love the atmosphere ere mate, it's great whether it quiet or busy, and also great for groups.
I do like your beers, but mate I have to tell you, your cocktails are more like mock tail! maybe just stick to what your good at...beer.
I see your moving up in the world by adding a hotel next door...good on ya son!.
I don't work in the area anymore....so I'll don't when I'll be back, but thanks for all the memories mate!! Have a good one. :))
It was at least my fith visit here until I discovered the EPIC BEER GARDEN!! Seriously, I just didn't know there was a back end whatsoever. But it is huge. A mixture of patio and grass seating.
Just goes to show what a creature of habit I am when all I do is hide in the bit with the pool table. The Drayton is one of the nicer pubs in the area, which is why I actually get a bus, yes a bus to get there.
It's a nice fullers pub, hotel and wedding venue. The pub is nicely divided in sections, without being completely cut off from one another. Drinks are reasonable and there's a good range. The Drayton tries to be a bit different. The menu changes and there's a daily specials menu each day. They also have lots of entertainment such as comedy nights and I believe... salsa.
The toilets are lovely. The ladies are a bit of a mission away. You have to go past the hotel reception and down the stairs, but its a necessarily and pleasant enough journey.
Now I know the gardens there tho, I'll be enjoying by pint al fresco from here on in.
A barn! A massive Fullers managed house that has 2 indoor bars, 1 outdoor for those few sunnt days and a massive seperate room that shows sports on a big screen. Varied food menu and a pool table, as well as the biggest beer garden I have ever seen. Clean, with friendly staff, The Drayton is well worth a visit.
Huge Fullers pub with nice food and friendly staff. Pool tables, kids area, sports on big screen, food, beer. Good stuff.
Nothing much to add to the other reviews. Very friendly staff, happy post-work vibe on the Thursday evening I was in. Good looking menu made me want to come back to eat. Decent Pride & Chiswick ales with some other interesting looking Fuller's brews also available.
