Great neighbourhood pub
Helpful, knowledgable staff
Good food, lots of laughs
Have to agree while the place is airy it has a strange layout that makes it uninviting and kind of segregated, needs better arrangement more seating, more harmony. Great beer selection anyone with white beer on tap has my vote. Have not eaten here yet but its on my bucket list.
This is a great, homey, massive pub in Ealing that is like a big house, and a home away from home as a local pub for so many. They have a fantastic selection of beers and ciders and also whiskies. They range from Scottish Innis and Gunn on tap to a Belgian fruiteuse on tap as well, to a large selection of Fullers and some nice wines and drams of Glenmorangie to top it all off. In the back, there is a huge yard for
a homely beer garden and even a children's play area (for the warmer months). I'd highly recommend this pub if you're in the area.
Although this place can get quite busy on Friday and Saturday nights its big enough to accomodate everyone. I've never had to stand. It doesn't really have that much personality though which isn't necessarily a bad thing though if you just fancy a quiet pint in this perfectly reasonable boozer.
The food on the main menu is reasonable but the specials are very good. They change on a very regular basis. There was some fantastic 'locally-sourced' lamb chops on the specials menu last time round and an incredible lamb shank with gnocchi the time before.
Sunday roast wasn't particularly impressive last time round but i'd be willing to give it another chance based on the quality of the specials menu.
The pub's beer garden is huge and gets very busy during the warmer summer months although those who don't like children in pubs should probably steer clear during the day - the place is crawling with them...
I prefer the Drayton Court to this place. The first time we came here we were let down. There was no atmosphere and the food choice was pretty poor and the meal smaller than I'd have hoped for the price.
We didn't give it another chance for ages and then came back and it was busier (I still don't like pubs that people drive to though) and seemed better than we recalled. We've been back a couple of times since and the staff attitude seemed to have improved. Did a pub quiz and had a meal there with my parents and we had a good time. Beer choice is pretty limited which I guess is to be expected from a suburban Fullers pub - but it doesn't mean I have to like it. Also noticed on one of the later visits that the outside area/beer garden is quite huge! The pub itself has loads of little nooks you can hide away in. Nice decor but I still think it's a bit too much "old money", Jaguar driving set for me.
Just reopened after refit. Not enough seats and music too loud. If you want a decent pub go to the Village Idiot along Pitshanger Lane
Food is great and reasonably priced although the wine is a bit on the pricey side. Very comfortable interior and just the sort of place for a get-together with male or female friends.
