The ever-present Timothy Taylors Landlord is joined by St Austell Tribute. The pub exterior regularly appeared in a 1980s sitcom, and familiar faces from current TV can often now be seen. From 'Acton's Pubs and Inns (1989) : "At the Acton Green end of Acton Lane, the lane takes a sharp right turn and then a left turn round an old field boundary. On the corner of this last turn stands the Swan. Acton Lane is an ancient way and there was a cluster of cottages here in early days. The pub is however first recorded in 1871 when the publican was James Brown who owned the house when it passed to the Phoenix Brewery, Latimer Road. The area around that part of Acton Lane was built up rapidly during that period. The pub passed to the Law Guarantee Trust and in 1909 to Charringtons. It survived the rebuilding in the area, was renovated and added to ; although the original house can still be seen. It still retains its original garden and some of the trees."

    • Lord Holmesdale Telephone(020) 8464 3280 184 Homesdale Road Bromley BR1 2QZ

      New management took over the pub at the beginning of July 2019, and have made substantial changes, with the objective of creating a family and food orientated venue. In particular, the Sports TV screens, the pool table and the football scarves behind the bar are all gone. And real ale has been introduced, for the first time in many years. For a while management intend to experiment with the cask ale choice, including some unusual choices. Food is now served throughout the day, with pizza a speciality, although there are alternatives. On Mondays there is a 2 for the price of one offer for pizza. The pub itself is rather larger and more spacious than one would guess from the exterior. Inside is a single U-shaped bar with the floor, walls and bar all predominantly wooden. To the rear is a secluded stone-flagged garden with benches and tables.

    • Prince Frederick Telephone(020) 8466 6741 31 Nichol Lane Bromley BR1 4DE

      Although this is not a listed building, it is one of London’s Real Heritage Pubs (ie on CAMRA’s London Regional Inventory of Pub Interiors of Special Historic Interest). This Greene King-owned pub is sited in a quiet road on the borders of Bromley North and Sundridge Park. ‘Prince Frederick’ is unique as a British pub name and commemorates the eldest son of George II. Although the prince died in 1751 the present building is of the Victorian era. It was revamped in the 1930s to provide two bars at the front, but the partition between the bars has been removed and the front bar is now one open plan area. At one time there must have been an off-sales compartment between the two parts, as indicated by the double doorway at the front of the building. There is also a back bar, distinct in its 1930s design, with a glazed advertising pane.

      From the carpeted front area, the decor is traditional with many original features retained including the tiling and a dark wood bar with ornate columns. Shades of green lend themselves to the ceiling and curtains, complementing the maroon patterned wallpaper complete with framed photographs. An extensive library of books dominates one wall by the door. An ornate mirror hangs over the tiled fireplace. The bar area is more narrow with wooden flooring, leading up to a more modernised area with drinking shelves and high chairs as well as the popular dartboard.

Large arched windows with etched glass complement the wooden frontage on the ground floor, divided into a central arch with end arches either side complete with mosaic floor tiling. Inside the pub has been completely refurbished as more open plan around a U-shaped bar with wooden flooring and cream walls adorned with tin-plated beer signs and beer pump clips.

The catering hours are split into separate periods for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner - check the web site for details. The building dates to the 19th century, and was owned in the 1930s by Hoare & Co, a brewery which was acquired by Charringtons. The adjacent 'Bell Cottages' were older, suggesting that an earlier pub may have existed on the site. Although the 470 bus route is closest, routes 151, 213 and SL7 stop in Cheam Village, a short walk away.

    • Olde Red Lion Telephone(020) 8642 5108 17 Park Road Cheam SM3 8QB

  • Chelsea
    • Admiral Codrington Telephone(020) 7581 0005 17 Mossop Street Chelsea SW3 2LY

      Known locally as "the Cod", popular with tourists and recommended in the Sloane Ranger Handbook. High ceilinged wood-panelled bar with the old cocktail bar now turned into a restaurant. Licensed in 1830 as a beer house and rebuilt in the 1860s because of railway tunnelling between South Kensington and Sloane Square. Named after the naval officer who captained the 98 gun ‘Orion’ at the Battle of Trafalgar and later, as Vice-Admiral of the Blue, led the fleet which defeated the Turks at Navarino in 1827. Listed in the Estrella Damm top 100 gastropub awards 2022.

    • Builders Arms Telephone(020) 7349 9040 13 Britten Street Chelsea SW3 3TY

      Built to serve the needs of masons and workmen employed in the construction of St. Luke's church opposite, erected 1820-24, it later served as the tap for Matthews & Cannings Anchor Brewery which stood next door. The brewery was taken over by Whitbread in 1899 with brewing continuing until 1907. Now it is a modernised, trendy but friendly venue with separate areas: the Nook, the Dining Room and the Bar. Sofas and comfortable seating and some quirky decor such as gold pineapple wall lights. Three real ales and an extensive food menu. This venue is now part of the small Cubitt House chain.

    • Butcher's Tap & Grill Telephone(01628) 401535 25-27 Tryon Street Chelsea SW3 3LG

      Closed for seven years, this 3,600sq ft, two-storey 1840-build pub site finally reopened in December 2023, the second to open under the Tom Kerridge Butcher’s Tap & Grill concept. This is his third London site and follows Kerridge's Bar & Grill at the Corinthia hotel in Whitehall, and Kerridge's Fish & Chips at Harrods' dining hall.

      Following very substantial refurb work, the ground-floor pub features a focal hardwood bar, chestnut leather booth seating and a bespoke timber staircase. The restaurant area is downstairs with an open plan kitchen equipped with meat-ageing fridges.

      The menu at Butcher's Tap & Grill Chelsea offers a selection of British-centric butcher-cuts, burgers, hot dogs and small bites, such as grass-fed beef rom HG Walter and Dovecote Farm and Longland Farm duck. The pub is open for lunch and dinner and serves a Sunday roast; as well as takeaway services. Kids eat free Monday - Thursday 3-5pm.

      Kerridge has said: "We very much want to be a local's local, somewhere to pop in, have a pint, watch some sport have a bite and relax. We will also be dog friendly so well behaved four legged friends are very welcome too!"

      There are three ale handpumps serving fairly low-ABV session beers at date of this entry. Further updates welcome.

    • Cadogan Arms Telephone(020) 3148 2630 298 Kings Road Chelsea SW3 5UG

      After extensive refurbishment, this pub finally reopened in July 2021 by a joint venture between JKS Partners and Dominic Jacobs, the man behind The Running Horse pub in Mayfair. Very much a foodie pub now and the menu includes sandwiches and Sunday roasts. Four cask ale handpumps feature up to three rotating semi-regulars and sometimes a guest ale. On keg there is Guinness and a cider plus another dozen or so lagers and other beers.

      Dating back to the 17th century when it was the Rose and Crown and built shortly after the King’s Road became a public thoroughfare, the name was changed to the Cadogan in 1838 when it was rebuilt. The pub retains some interesting external architectural features: note the red pilaster surrounds with Corinthian capitals; the inside is beautiful but modern-build. Sister pub to the George in Fitzrovia. Winner of the CAMRA pub designs awards (refurbishment category) 2023 – "the restoration of the pub sought to recreate the lost early Georgian architectural details and ornate timber panelling of the original building."

    • Chelsea Arts Club Telephone(020) 7376 3311 143-145 Old Church Street Chelsea SW3 6EB

      Founded in 1891 at the instigation of the artist Whistler, as a rival to the older Arts Club. The club when formed was intentionally bohemian in character and remains true to its roots. There is no dress code. It promotes social intercourse amongst its members and helps promote their artistic work. The Chelsea Arts Club ball was a famous fixture at the Albert Hall in the first half of the twentieth century, eventually banned due to riotous behaviour; footage of some of the balls may be seen on old British Pathe newsreels. Nowadays the Club serves as a host for various events including of course visual arts exhibitions as well as musical performances including live jazz, and literary talks. The clubhouse is normally white but may be painted for special events, see example in this entry; it includes a dining room, bar, snooker room and some bedrooms. The rooms are lined with art by members past and present. Club membership is between three and four thousand drawn mainly from the creative and artistic worlds; there is a waiting list for new members. If you are lucky enough to be invited in, food is stated to be moderately priced. Confirmed by a member as offering real ale.

    • Chelsea Pensioners' Club Royal Hospital Road Chelsea SW3 4SR

      There are three large, comfortable rooms and a "clubby" atmosphere. Regimental plaques and military paintings adorn the walls and there is even a proper pub sign! Although parts of the Royal Hospital (in which the Club stands) are open to the public - and a visit to this Wren-designed complex is recommended - the Club is open only to Chelsea Pensioners and their guests; CPs get discounted prices. Note the unusual (unique?) double-slotted pillar box at the London Gate.

    • Chelsea Potter Telephone(020) 7352 9479 119 Kings Road Chelsea SW3 4PL

      Built as a beer house in 1843 and enlarged in the 1890s, this pub was called the Commercial Tavern until 1956 when it was renamed after William de Morgan, founder of the nearby Chelsea Pottery. Note the attractive canted bay window and the glazing bar divided windows along the Radnor Walk frontage, adorned with hanging baskets, where the outside tables are available. Inside, now a comfortable one bar pub, its high ceiling supported on slender scroll-topped columns, is furnished with a mixture of high and low tables, chairs and stools. A bare boarded floor, plenty of carved wood and a variety of mirrors add to the atmosphere. A pub-grub menu is offered. Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones are reputed to have once been customers; now it attracts a passing trade as well as the local regulars. Two regular ales from the GK stable are normally on offer, with a third handpump often used for cider.

    • Chelsea Ram Telephone(020) 7351 4008 32 Burnaby Street Chelsea SW10 0PL

      Built in 1887 as the Ashburnham Arms by the Royal Chelsea Brewery on a provisional licence which, unfortunately for the brewery, was not confirmed by the Middlesex licensing justices. The premises remained vacant until 1892 when it was occupied by the St John's Ashburnham Institute. It eventually became licensed in 1984 when it was bought by Young’s; it is located near the former Lots Road Power Station and Auction Rooms. Refurbished by Young's with a light and spacious gastro-pub ambience, it has not lost its original community atmosphere. The pub is split into a main bar area and a large dining room to the rear; there are distinctive arched windows with the Ram symbol etched in the glass. The staff show commitment to beer quality plus an emphasis on good food availability, including daily specials.

    • Coopers Arms Telephone(020) 7376 3120 87 Flood Street Chelsea SW3 5TB

      The original Coopers Arms, licensed in 1831 as a beer house, was demolished in 1874 and rebuilt forty feet south of its original position to allow for the extension of Redsdale Street into Queen Street (as Flood Street was then called). The fine decorative frontage of London Brick and, above ground-floor level, the attractive architrave window surrounds with moulded cornice hoods and pediments, are all noteworthy. Today, this popular pub, half-way between the King's Road and the Embankment, is one of just two in Chelsea tied to Young’s. The spacious 'L'-shaped area around the bar is furnished with comfortable chairs and tables. Six handpumps presently dispense a choice of two or three real ales; the range may expand, further updates welcome. An interesting menu offers good food at reasonable prices for the area. The only Master Cooper left in the country is now Alastair Simms at the White Rose Cooperage, but the tradition will carry on as, in 2016, Kean Hiscock signed his indentures as an apprentice cooper for this ancient trade.

    • Cross Keys Telephone(020) 7351 0686 1 Lawrence Street Chelsea SW3 5NB

      Following one of the hardest-fought battles in London to save a pub from developers and with, at one point, squatters in the pub, a long lease on the ground floor and basement of the building was granted by Parsons Green Land to the the DM Group, who, following an extensive refit, as most original fittings were destroyed, reopened the pub in 2015. Today's Cross Keys is primarily a gastropub, but, as well as the tables laid for diners at the rear, there is plenty of space at the front of the pub for drinkers. The decor is dominated by bare brick walls, some half-height panelled and others decorated with stripped pre-used wooden doors and large wooden shutters (said to be from a Portuguese asylum!). The back wall is cleverly mirrored to reflect light from the skylight above. As well as bar stools at a plain oak bar, there is a mixture of types of dining tables and chairs. Ales are from the Butcombe range. Food-wise, as well as a full menu at meal times bar snacks, including Scotch eggs sausage rolls and Welsh rarebit, are available all day. Prices reflect the location.

    • Crown Telephone(020) 7352 9505 153 Dovehouse Street Chelsea SW3 6LB

      Small, corner local off the Fulham Road, close to the Royal Marsden Hospital, described as the last traditional locals' boozer left in Chelsea. Poker night on Mondays! Darts knockout every Tuesday, a gallon of beer for the winner! Serves Thai food and pub classics including weekend roasts.

    • Fox & Pheasant Telephone(020) 7352 2943 1 Billing Road Chelsea SW10 9UJ

      Under new ownership (so saved from possible redevelopment) and sensitively refurbished and extended during a fifteen month closure, the Fox & Pheasant re-opened in mid-2018, welcoming back drinkers and diners to a quintessentially British and charmingly vibrant country pub on the Chelsea-Fulham border.

      The two original bars were restored to their original appearance; an olive tree-filled conservatory (with a retractable roof for summer) was added at the rear; and, on the second floor, a secluded, wood-panelled private dining room that seats up to 22 was created. Once inside, you could be excused for thinking that you were in a rural setting instead of just a few yards from the busy Fulham Road and close to Chelsea football ground! You enter a small lobby with an off-sales hatch to the servery and doors to the former public bar, to the left, and the larger saloon bar on the right. The interior is a typical modest pub-fitting from between the wars, now quite rare, albeit more comfortably furnished for the twenty-first century. Owner James Blunt has been quoted as saying "The pub is my favourite place in the world. It brings strangers together in a world where politicans want to separate us..."

      The pub offers three real ales which change from time to time; a small range of keg and bottled beers and ciders; and a well-selected wine list and the inevitable cocktails. Whilst the pub still firmly caters for drinkers, for those who wish to eat the pub’s dining experience claims to champion British produce and to be founded on seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients, all under the care of a Gordon Ramsay-trained head chef. Whilst the kitchen has a break in the late afternoon (except on Sundays), bar snacks are available all day and include classics such as scotch eggs alongside more original dishes like buttermilk-fried guineafowl.

      Note that the pub is in a gated private road which contrives with the double-yellow lines on the adjacent public highway to make parking nearby very difficult. If you choose to get here via West Brompton station, there is an interesting "rural route" south through the Victorian cemetery (which closes an hour or so before dusk).

    • Hollywood Arms Telephone(020) 7349 7840 45 Hollywood Road Chelsea SW10 9HX

      Up-market side street local built in 1865 (1856 notice on pub’s front is wrong) probably by the Godwins according to Pevsner, although the local council gives the builders as Corbett & McClymont. Grade II listed building. Now an elegant, airy modern style pub following "refurbishment"; but at least the refurb left some etched and cut glass at the front of the pub. At the back of the pub, the tabloid press has reported a "secret entrance" used by VIPs! Fresh & seasonal food is prepared in-house daily and includes Sunday roasts. For events see pub website. As at the last couple of feedbacks it was reported that only one ale was on offer. Further updates welcome.

    • Hunter's Moon Telephone(020) 3904 2270 86 Fulham Road Chelsea SW3 6HR

      Following various ups and downs (see the Historic Interest section) this site reopened in late 2019 as Hunter's Moon, the debut site of the Lunar Pub Company. The interiors are rustic-chic, featuring oak and vintage tile flooring, textured walls and ceilings, leather seating, pendant lighting and antique mirrors. There is a dining room at the back seating 48 and a small pub at the front seating 25. Pub grub at the front includes scotch eggs, sausage rolls and courgette and ricotta croquettes plus oysters and charcuterie. The dining room offers a modern European menu changing daily, and the venue is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner including Saturday brunch and Sunday roasts. The restaurant has attracted good reviews since opening and its prices reflect the local area. Two real ales are reported to be on offer including, very unusually for London, Butty Bach from Wye Valley Brewery.

    • Kings Arms Telephone(020) 7351 5643 190 Fulham Road Chelsea SW10 9PN

      Striking combination of old and new. Built in 1861 by Bayswater builder Edwin Curtis; not a listed building but it has remarkable interior tilework and typical Geronimo "shabby-chic" decor. Up to three real ales in normal times.

    • Lots Road Telephone(020) 7352 6645 114 Lots Road Chelsea SW10 0RJ

      Part of the small London-based Market Taverns chain, this is a modern gastro-pub with a food menu including pub favourites and Sunday roasts. Takeways are also available. At least two real ales are normally on. Very convenient for the Chelsea Harbour complex and marina, and the northside Thames Path. Easy walking distance to Imperial Wharf station.

    • Phene Telephone(020) 7352 9898 9 Phene Street Chelsea SW3 5NY

      The Phene (pronounced 'Feeny') is located in a leafy Chelsea backwater, roughly halfway between Kings Road and the Chelsea Embankment. Built in 1853 (along with the rest of the street) by Dr John Samuel Phene, a wealthy and eccentric landowner - he is credited with initiating the idea of planting trees in city streets - the pub is considered architecturally unusual by being attached to a "terrace" of just one house on Phene Street. Today it is a high-end gastropub decorated in minimalist light grey, a clubhouse-style venue housing a traditional saloon bar with bright red banquettes and a stripped wooden floor, a conservatory restaurant at the back and a lounge on the first-floor. The extensive heated terrace to the side is complete with comfortable sofas, outdoor fireplaces and quirky hanging basket chairs. All as seen in the BAFTA award-winning, structured-reality television series "Made in Chelsea". Expect to pay Chelsea prices. Apart from the champagnes, wines and cocktails, the drink offerings include two handpumps for cask ale, a number of taps dispensing craft/keg mostly local beers and a good range of local London-brewery bottled beers. The food menu is very tempting indeed, despite being at prices to be expected of the locale. It is reported that this venue does not accept cash.

    • Phoenix Telephone(020) 7730 9182 23 Smith Street Chelsea SW3 4EE

      Apart from some patched-up twentieth-century exterior brick work, this appears to be the original tavern that was built and licensed in 1794/5, making this the oldest surviving pub in Chelsea. Now more of a gastropub than an old-fashioned boozer but pleasant all the same, deep in the heart of Chelsea, with three cask beers and a friendly atmosphere. Very handy for the Royal Hospital (and its Chelsea Pensioners) and the National Army Museum.

    • Sporting Page Telephone(020) 7349 0455 6 Camera Place Chelsea SW10 0BH

      Rebuilt in 1974 as the Red Anchor on the site of the Odell Arms (1856-1971) and renamed in 1989, a vestige of the Victorian era remains in the salvaged Victorian lamp over the door of this pub in the back streets between the Fulham Road and the Embankment. Now part of the small London-based Market Taverns chain, it has become a comfortable one bar pub with a friendly feel. Three handpumps offer a choice of up to three real ales, often including some from London breweries. Sporting themed prints and memorabilia adorn the walls. Keep an eye on the pub website for offers.

    • Surprise Telephone(020) 3837 4600 6 Christchurch Terrace Chelsea SW3 4AJ

      A delightful Surprise this pub indeed is, hidden away, as it is, in the backstreets of Chelsea, though its name originates from that of the ship that bore Napoleon's body back to France in 1820. Reopened post-Covid and now leased to Jack Greenall, a scion of the Greenall Whitley brewing family. The pub features a bar and 28-cover restaurant area plus a private dining room, the Hamilton.

  • Chelsfield
    • Bo-Peep Telephone(01959) 534457 Hewitts Road Chelsfield BR6 7QL

      There has been a building on this site since the 14th century when a farmhouse was constructed, and the pub website has much information about its history. Today it is a cosy pub restaurant with several different rooms with low ceilings and an Inglenook fireplace. It is very convenient for Junction 4 of the M25, and parking is available. The menu varies to include seasonal specialities and an emphasis on fish dishes.

      Outside restaurant hours (see food times), light bites are available from the bar Monday to Saturday 3pm to 6pm.

      Note that last orders are 30 minutes before closing.

      Unfortunately, in July 2022, the R7 bus route which used to pass close to the pub was re-routed and no longer does so. So there is no convenient access by public transport any more. The alternatives are a walk of about 1200 metres from the centre of Chelsfield or a longer walk of about 1700 metres from Knockholt station, which is in zone 6. For those interested in walking please consult the Pub Walks section of the Bromley CAMRA website and refer to routes 26 and 27. The link is below.

    • Chelsfield Telephone(01689) 637605 1 Windsor Drive Chelsfield BR6 6EY

      Large pub conveniently situated for both Chelsfield main line rail station and the local R1 bus route. Having survived threatened demolition in the late 2010s, the pub has now been extensively (and expensively) renovated during the Covid lockdown, and is now back to its best. Cask ale remains well-represented with the two regular beers being augmented by a guest, usually from a small local brewery, and plans for a fourth handpump to be put into operation.

      The refurbishment has seen wholesale changes. All carpeting has been removed, replaced by floor tiling around the bar and oak flooring elsewhere. The interior seating now includes benches and some high tables. As before, the Georgian style windows admit plenty of light. There is a selection of old photographs of the neighbourhood on the walls.

      Outside the area in front of the pub now includes much improved seating. There is a patio area to the rear, where the garden is currently being brought back to life.

      There are large rooms at each end of the main bar, one is now used as a restaurant whilst the other can potentially be used for functions. Dogs are welcome in the pub provided they are kept well clear of the restaurant area.

    • Tabard Telephone(020) 8994 3492 2 Bath Road Chiswick W4 1LW

      A pub that dates back to 1880 and was built as part of the Bedford Park estate, the first London garden suburb. It was welcomed in 1880 by the local journal, the Bedford Park Gazette, which expressed the hope that it would stop the sale of alcoholic liquors through other channels to the estate workmen building the new houses. The pub is Grade II*-listed and has now been registered with Hounslow Council as an Asset of Community Value, Hounslow ACV 001 and renewed 014. Notable interior features include tiling by William de Morgan and Walter Crane, and Arts & Crafts mirrors and pictures. The swing sign is based on the original painted by TM Rooke in 1880 and, amazingly, during refurbishment in 2016, the long-lost original sign was found again; it is hoped it can be conserved in due course. There are four distinct drinking areas (two bars, a dining area and a 'snug'), and ten hand pumps serve a cider (usually Westons Old Rosie) and regularly changing guest ales, sourced both nationally and locally. (If it is a hot spell the number of ciders may temporarily increase.) There is also a good range of unusual bottled beers, and keg craft beers such as Beavertown and Camden. Two-pint takeaway cartons are available. A comprehensive selection of board games are available. Evening live music on Sat. and a Wed. quiz are usually in the dining area.

    • Railway Tavern Telephone(020) 8348 3396 23 Crouch End Hill Crouch End N8 8DH

      A former Charrington's house, the pub is a rare survivor of the suburban inter-war years fashion for mock-Tudor. It dates from 1937, and may have been designed by Charrington's architect Sidney C Clark. It was named for the long closed Crouch End station, just up the hill, elements of which survive on what is now the Parkland Walk, part of the London Ring, from Highgate to Finsbury Park.

      The wood panelling of the interior, which keeps part at least of the dividing screen between the large front room and the more snug rear (which includes a fairly cosy gas-effect fire and inglenook), wood bar and back bar, all make for an inviting stop when in Crouch End, or a short diversion off your walk.

      There's a good mixture of hanging decoration, and art on the walls, and a friendly enthusiastic staff team happily served us drinks at the bar counter - four cask ales on including well-kept Fuller's London Pride and Timthy Taylor's Landlord.

      Their website contains a very interesting section on the pub's history going back to 1937, it is worth mentioning the Toby plaque in the downside wall. There's much more background and history on the Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum site

      Large, attractive, new pub and carvery which was opened by the Mayor on June 15th 2015, on the former Sanofi site.

  • Dalston Kingsland
    • Railway Tavern Ale House Telephone(020) 3092 3344 2 St Jude Street Dalston Kingsland N16 8JT

      Following a change of operators (until late 2018 it had been run by the same team that manage The Pineapple, and Tapping The Admiral) the left side of bar was extended with a pizza oven added. The l/h area is now more visible as curtains removed and bar counter servery curves to the left side and rear now around the pizza oven. Fireplace located in a cosy corner. Payment by card only.

  • Dartmouth Park
    • Bull & Last Telephone(020) 7267 3641 168 Highgate Road Dartmouth Park NW5 1QS

      NOTE from their website - "On Monday October 1st 2018, we will be closing our doors for a extensive refurbishment. We have secured planning permission to add six bed and breakfast rooms to the top floor of the building. This project has been in the works for a very long time and we can't wait to finally get stuck in, building the next chapter in our journey."

    • Star Telephone(020) 3294 8905 47 Chester Road Dartmouth Park N19 5DF

      Aug 2023 - pre-covid this pub sold up to 4 cask beers but that range has now been significantly reduced. Our reported comments, "2 pumps but only one on. TT Landlord. It will be replaced when it runs out. Intention of keeping at least one on." So expect to find Landlord but at times there might be a replacement beer.

      Formerly the Totnes Castle, the Star reinvented itself as a gastro pub. The emphasis is not just on food though; there is an acoustic music night on Thursdays and the 'Anything Goes' club on the first Sunday of the month lives up to its name with everything from comedy to poetry. The growing number of pump clips behind the bar showed the pub's commitment to a changing range of real ale - but as we note above, this is no longer the case.

      Food served from 18.30 - 22.30. But don't give any leftovers to the pub dog. Signs advise you not to feed it under any circumstances! Various bottled ciders are also available but the Addlestone's Cloudy on pump is not felt to meet CAMRA's standards on what makes real cider. Beer garden. Bus: C11.

      In Jan 2021 the Dartmouth Park Neighbourhood Forum let us know that the Star, Chester Rd has recently (December 2020) been registered under the Localism Act as an Asset of Community Value.

    • Dog & Bell Telephone(020) 8692 5664 116 Prince Street Deptford SE8 3JD

      An oasis in an area that has become something of a pub graveyard as the loss of local waterside industry killed off passing trade. A pub of this name has occupied this back street near the Thames for several hundred years, surviving now on its reputation for real ale, excellent food and events such as its celebrated annual Pickle Festival. Five or more cask beers with a varied selection of interesting guest ales always available. One or more box ciders are usually also available. Parents with young children should beware of the steps where the floor is split level. Folk music on Wednesday evenings and quiz night on Sunday.

Inside there is a surprisingly large rectangular open space with the bar on the left hand side and a mix of seating and tables. The styling is perhaps best described as industrial shabby chic with a bare concrete floor and exposed heating ducts and pipework. Toilets are up a steepish flight of stairs. Music is often playing.

      Locals' pub that's always busy.

The side bar leads into a larger back room with picnic tables, pool table and a Thai kitchen at rear. Food serving times are not known to us - website gives no details.

It makes the large room - largely 'decorated' in architects distressed brick wall - that comprises the main seating and drinking area even darker, on an admittedly cloudy and rainy afternoon, excepting the tables at the side windows. There is a selection of keg beers including two from Brixton Brewery, and at least one from Beavertown.

      There are two toilets just behind the bar, and more in the rear where the bands perform.

      The kitchen, adjacent to the bar, was open to view from the room. The menu leans heavily on the pizza and burger selection. "While none of us were hungry - other than for a decent pint - we did see some tempting pizzas being served to an adjacent table."

      The pub went through a refurbishment, just up from Manor House tube. It has been through many disguises in the past including the infamous Mr Q chain and now features live music or another live event every evening, there being a stage in the back room.

    • General Napier Telephone07949 708212 73 Bovill Road Forest Hill SE23 1EX

      This is a friendly and unpretentious, cornersite backstreet pub, popular with the local community. The pub sign is a fairly plain affair that just says “The Nap”. Inside it’s carpeted throughout, with banquettes, metal framed tables and small stools providing the main furnishings, but of course with the obligatory tall stools at the bar. Rather unusually, there’s a bit of matchboard half-height wooden screening in the middle of the room that serves to screen off some of the seating from the main bar area. There are TVs; a dartboard near the corner door; a small garden at the back and a few benches outside at the front, plus free wi-fi advertised. Refurbished and reopened under new management in July 2022.

      Re-opened after a refurbishment in October 2015, the first of the new Hippo Inns chain of managed pubs, a joint venture between Ei (formerly Enterprise Inns) and Rupert Clevely (founder of Geronimo Inns).

    • Atlas Telephone(020) 7385 9129 16 Seagrave Road Fulham SW6 1RX

      One of London's Real Heritage pubs and a classic pub to see what its owners, Trumans, were up to in the 1930s. The fittings are a surprisingly complete array from their inter-war refit including a black-and-white tiled spittoon. The counter-fronts have doors, a feature of many London pubs in times past, to allow servicing of the beer engines. The outside fabric of the pub is a 1950s rebuild following heavy WW2 bomb damage.

      The pub is a pleasant enough one-bar establishment with a separate eating area. It now promotes itself as an authentic London boozer albeit offering an upmarket selection of food including Sunday roasts.

      One of the few London pubs with a walled courtyard garden which has now been considerably extended with a largish patio area as a result of the 'Lillie Square' development.

However it has now magically re-emerged as Brook House, a mix of restaurant, pub, and bar. It's run by Mark Dyer and Eamonn Manson, a duo who have already achieved success with three other local pubs. The venue is mainly laid out for diners but casual drinkers can obtain a drink at the bar and some space is available for them. The house ale is from Belhaven. There is an all-day food menu as well as specific lunch and dinner menus, and on Sundays there are roast options.

      The pub is to the south of Parson's Green, and across from the famous White Horse on the north side. Refurbished in 2015, it's a modernist open bar, hardwood floors, a mixture of comfortable 'fire-side' chairs (sadly just a 'coal-effect' gas fire), and large and small tables, high and lower. The usual Young's Ordinary and Special plus some local London craft beers and a good bottled range. There is some interesting tilework from the Fulham Pottery on the walls.

    • Fulham Arms Telephone(020) 7731 7823 135-137 Stephendale Road Fulham SW6 2PR

      This part of West London has few transport links and is a funny mix of gasworks, newly redeveloped office blocks and terraced houses in quiet streets. The Fulham Arms gastro pub, then, is a bit of a trek to get to but worth the effort. The pub aims for an upmarket clientele, and it is perfectly possible to have a drink without needing to eat. Three ales from the Butcombe range may be expected.

      The extensive food offering includes Saturday brunch, Sunday roasts, lunchtime sandwiches, and a kids' menu. The pub menus states "We care immensely about the quality, provenance and seasonality of the produce we buy, and work closely with our suppliers who share the same mindset. Walter Rose Butchers, Kingfisher of Brixham and Hobbs House Bakery to name a few, all strive to be fully sustainable, with complete traceability."

There are four handpumps, currently serving one or two cask ales; prices are reported very reasonable for the area.

    • Harwood Arms Telephone(020) 7386 1847 Walham Grove Fulham SW6 1QP

      The inn sign depicts the coat of arms of the Earl of Harwood, the original freeholder. Built in 1866 as a beer house. Now the pub is at the very highest end of the gastropub spectrum, with excellent food and a very superior wine selection. Consistently high up in the Estrella Damm national Top 50 Gastropubs awards, listed in the ED National Restaurant Awards and Michelin-starred.

      The pub specialises in British food with an emphasis on game, and encourages sustainability by trying to use as much wild food as possible plus fruit and veg from its rooftop garden. The chef/owner has his own herd of sika deer; and the venison scotch egg and Sunday venison roast feature prominently on the menu. The wine list is elaborate with French vintages dominating.

      Quiz night is on Tuesday. Because of its food reputation, unsurprisingly most or all of the seating in the evening is laid out for diners and much of it at lunchtime. If you come during busy periods just wanting a drink, be prepared for vertical drinking! And if you do want to eat here, particularly for Sunday lunch, you may have to be prepared to book many weeks in advance.

  • Ham
    • Hand & Flower Telephone(020) 8439 9001 24 Upper Ham Road, Richmond Ham TW10 5LA

      This pub/restaurant has had a very tasteful refurbishment both inside and out by the new tenant. The large paved garden area (now restored) has plenty of seating and a water feature.

      History - This inn was created upon the site of a farm labourers cottage near Poulter’s Gate in the hamlet of Ham with Hatch, built for Sarah Burnham, a widow, in 1746. The ‘Hand and Flower’ name appeared in the 1861 Census and it seems the property was elevated to the status of an Inn sometime between 1851 and 1861. It has undergone alteration in recent years, but sections of some of the inner walls may still suggest the original structure of the little old two-story dwelling. The Gothic-style upper lancet windows facing the Garden on the North side also lend a certain touch of antiquity to the building. New swinging Pub Sign installed Nov 2023.

    • New Inn Telephone(020) 8940 9444 345 Petersham Road Ham TW10 7DB

      A traditional picturesque pub located in a prominent position from the main road and at the corner of Ham Green. Established in 1756, the New Inn, as the name implies, replaced a previous pub called the White Hart, built in 1642. Behind the Georgian frontage lies a comfortable and relaxing pub, arranged around a central bar, decorated in a traditional style. Outside wooden seating and tables are provided at the front overlooking the Green. There is also a large paved walled courtyard garden at the rear.

  • Hammersmith
    • Andover Arms Telephone(020) 8748 2155 57 Aldensley Road Hammersmith W6 0DL

      This 1853 backstreet local is situated in the centre of the (estate agents') "Brackenbury Village", adding to its rural feel. Acquired by Fuller's from Watney's in 1991, the pub has undergone limited changes since, including combining the bars into one room, opening up the kitchen and extending into the former yard at the rear.

      Entering through the middle door, the attractive wood-panelled bar counter, furnished with bar stools and a gantry, complete with snob screens, and an elaborate back bar are directly in front of you, whilst the main seating, with an eclectic assortment of dining tables and chairs, extends on the left to the rear, with piano and fireplace (with a real fire in cold weather) as well as to the right past the open-plan kitchen.

      A frequent entry in the Good Beer Guide, this is a popular local with a devoted regular clientele supplemented by visitors drawn to the pub by its reputation for well-kept real ale and good food. Note that the pub is closed on Mondays and until 5pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

    • Anglesea Arms Telephone(020) 8749 1291 35 Wingate Road Hammersmith W6 0UR

      Corner local in Brackenbury Village dating from 1866 and which headed upmarket after a 1996 refurbishment. It is still a local but now much more food-led with a restaurant/eating area at rear of bar. Four handpumps of which at least two should be on at any one time; see pub website for real ales of the week. Along the long brick wall, the pub has regular exhibitions of work from local artists or photographers.

    • Black Lion Telephone(020) 8748 2639 2 South Black Lion Lane Hammersmith W6 9TJ

      Grade II listed 16th-century inn very close to the river and visible from it, attracting tourists on their riverside walks. The large beer garden can seat 200, is home to a 400-year-old chestnut tree and hosts Sunday lunchtime barbecues. But the skittle alley which used to be at the back of the pub has now sadly disappeared to become a function area.

      This is now a food-led venue, with pub classics and a range of pizzas for mains. There are 3 real ale pumps with normally at least two ales on.

      A painting of the late A P Herbert, local resident, MP and polymath, presides over "his" corner table. Note that the beer prices here reflect the upmarket nature of the area.

    • Blue Anchor Telephone(020) 8748 5774 13 Lower Mall Hammersmith W6 9DJ

      This riverside pub close to rowing clubs and Hammersmith Bridge was first licensed in the mid-19th century and should not be confused with an earlier tavern of the same name although the present pub website claims a site licence from 1722! Gustav Holst, when music master of nearby St Paul's School, is reputed to have composed his Hammersmith Suite on the premises. Quiz night Wednesday. Four real ales normally available.

    • Blue Boat Telephone(020) 3092 2090 Distillery Wharf, Parr's Way Hammersmith W6 9RU

      An impressive modern Fuller's pub opened in March 2015 on the riverside, at the back of a new St. George's housing development at Fulham Reach, and off the top end of Fulham Palace Road quite close to Hammersmith Broadway.

      There is a large terrace area for views across the river. Inside there is an open-plan kitchen, with dining areas and ample drinking space around a very long zinc bar. Numerous downlighters from a high concrete ceiling illuminate black and oak wood finishes, white tiles, nautical artefacts, lit display cabinets and a mix of large and small, high and low tables. The food offering includes a varied main menu plus sandwiches, Sunday roasts, and kids' dishes. This pub is very popular, so if you want to eat here then either book a table or get here early!

      In 2016 the pub was runner-up in the Fuller's Griffin Trophy Best London pub category.

    • Brook Green Hotel Telephone(020) 7603 2516 170 Shepherds Bush Road Hammersmith W6 7PB

      On this site stood the Barley Mow until 1886, when the pub was rebuilt and renamed the Brook Green, just two years prior to its purchase by Young's. The word “Hotel” was appended when the letting rooms were added. The bar is spacious, high-ceilinged and airy, with big windows looking across Brook Green and down Shepherds Bush Road from the imposing corner site. Its decor and furnishing are a comfortable blend of Victoriana and modernity. At one end is a grand fireplace (complete with a log fire in the season) sporting a mirrored overmantle; at the other some stripped brickwork. In between is a long bar counter with an attractive mirrored mahogany back bar. Furniture consists of leather-style banquettes and upholstered chairs and stools at both high and low tables, together with some leather settees. Breakfast available from 7am on weekdays and 8am at weekends and food service, with enticing menu items at reasonable prices, continues throughout the day. But note that the licence here does not permit alcohol sale to the public until 10am. There is a separate basement cocktail bar, Smith's, offering only bottle beers, and 17 ensuite hotel rooms on the floors above.

    • Carpenter's Arms Telephone(020) 8741 8386 91 Black Lion Lane Hammersmith W6 9BG

      First opened as a public house in 1871, owned by the Thomas Salt and Co Brewery. Now a cosy gastropub with secluded courtyard garden; the pub has attracted very good independent reviews for its food, e.g. serial entries in the Good Food Guide. Locals would be forgiven for keeping very quiet about this hidden gem, although the emphasis here is not on real ale; the excellent menus change daily. Note restricted opening hours. Two local ales were reported at our last update; further news welcome.

    • Chancellors Telephone(020) 8748 2600 25 Crisp Road Hammersmith W6 9RL

      In a building dating from the 1850s, this was a friendly & unpretentious locals' pub, which made it perhaps stand out from the more upmarket establishments in Hammersmith. The bar is located round three sides of a square and the decor is largely dark wood and black banquette seating. The pub is opposite the Riverside Studios site, and its walls feature black and white photos of British film and TV stars from the fifties to the nineties, a heaven for nostalgia fans. Two real ales and a range of lager pumps. Post-pandemic, the pub has been pretty much transformed under its new owner. Carl McCluskey took over the pub from his grandmother in 2020 and launched a pizza range, initially as a pandemic-era takeaway. His "Crisp Pizza W6" offering has received rave reviews and international attention, with queues of customers sometimes snaking back to the Apollo. It's walk-in only for seats, no reservations. Pizzas available Thursday evenings and Friday to Sunday from 1pm to 9pm.

    • Crabtree Telephone(020) 7385 3929 Rainville Road Hammersmith W6 9HA

      Spacious Thames-side pub in the back streets half a mile from Fulham football ground, rebuilt in 1898 by Sich’s Lamb brewery of Chiswick. The split-level bar with restaurant at rear has a high-vaulted ceiling and some plush furniture including leather banquettes. A large patio/garden area overlooks the river and affords a view of the annual Varsity Boat Race; weeping willows and parasols provide shade. Occasional events include Meet the Brewer – see website and social media. Quiz night is Tuesday.

    • Craft Beer Co. Telephone(020) 8748 7033 17-18 Broadway Shopping Centre Hammersmith W6 9YD

      Following a period of closure this site was taken over by the Craft Beer Co and reopened in 2019, having had a major refurbishment to create a “modern pub with old-school pub values and real hospitality at its core”.

      The pub takes the form of a moderate-sized room, 'L'-shaped around the bar counter, and seems more spacious than previously, thanks to a contraction of the servery space and perhaps to the geometric patterning of the floor tiles. There is a good-sized terrace outside.

      Usually available are three cask ales on handpump, plus, as you would expect from the name, a good range of craft beer offerings: up to 20 keg lines and 50+ bottles & cans, including some rarities at appropriate prices. Green Mosaic pizzas may be ordered to the table.

      Its location, close to the Apollo music venue and at the south end of the shopping arcade sandwiched between Hammersmith's bus and the District and Piccadilly Line stations, gives a good passing footfall throughout the day, but the pub can be especially busy before concerts across the road.

    • Cross Keys Telephone(020) 8563 7032 57 Black Lion Lane Hammersmith W6 9BG

      Very much a traditional pub in the exclusive St Peter's Square area of Hammersmith, the Cross Keys attracts a mixed clientèle. Long owned by Fuller's, its handpumps used to serve exclusively London Pride, but now a Dark Star Pale Ale, or possibly a guest ale, is usually also offered. From the narrow frontage, with its attractive garden, two doors lead into the single room, wood panelled, with its anaglypta papered ceiling supported on slender iron columns. To the left, a rare sight in today's London pubs, is a dart board. Beyond the bar, the room opens out and leads to the two rear gardens separated by "The Barn", which can be reserved for functions. A short, but attractive, menu offers up-market pub-grub at modest prices for the area; it includes Sunday roasts. The kitchen may stay open late on the popular Thursday Quiz Night and the pub's website has occasional offers.

    • Dartmouth Castle Telephone(020) 8748 3614 26 Glenthorne Road Hammersmith W6 0LS

      1867 corner pub with a comfortable lounge bar which has an exceptional Victorian bar-back. The interior is noted by CAMRA as being of some regional importance; note the dumb waiter, still in working order. The side patio is covered over in the winter. Three handpumps offer at least two cask ales. The food offering includes a Mediterranean-inspired main menu. The pub is close to the Hammersmith tube stations and may become crowded in early evenings.

    • Distillers Telephone(020) 8747 6167 64 Fulham Palace Road Hammersmith W6 9PH

      This is a corner Fuller's pub, close to the new 'Fulham Reach' property development, with a curved frontage and named after Haigs Gin Distillery, which stood nearby; perhaps oddly named since it was originally a beer house and could not sell wine or spirits. It still retains some original glasswork from the 1906 rebuild by Royal Brewery of Brentford. Large patio/terrace area attractively furnished & with its own BBQ & bar area. Large can & bottled beer range plus numerous craft beers on draught, two real ales and three ciders some of which CAMRA defines as real; following a mini-refurb in mid-2018, a feature of the bar is two 880-pint tanks of Frontier lager. Changing weekly menu and semi-open kitchen. Comedy, live music, quiz, open mic and band nights. Winner of the Outstanding Achievement category in Fuller's 2015 pub of the year contest, The Griffin Trophy.

    • Dove Telephone(020) 8748 9474 19 Upper Mall Hammersmith W6 9TA

      One of London's Real Heritage Pubs, the main bar area is on a raised level with a tiny public bar at the front, the smallest area for any London bar at around 33 square feet. However, research suggests that this bar is not very ancient and was installed some time after 1911 by the then licensee who mistakenly thought his pub layout contravened the Licensing Consolidation Act of 1910 and hurriedly created the tiny snug.

      The likes of Dylan Thomas, Ernest Hemingway and Alec Guinness have enjoyed a pint or two of excellent beer here; fortunately for them they were all drinking after 7th January 1928 when the bars were waist-high in water. Now, we hope, the Thames Barrier will stop another inundation! The rear conservatory has a fruit bearing vine and leads to a terrace overlooking the Thames. Well worth a visit but often crowded in summer. If you are lucky you can climb up the spiral stairs to the tiny mezzanine terrace which has two or three tables.

      Classic food with a twist is served every day and the food is of restaurant-quality.

      Note that the pub no longer takes cash for payments.

    • Duchess Telephone(020) 8748 9128 320 Goldhawk Road Hammersmith W6 0XF

      Large, airy corner pub, rebuilt 1928 and now providing two distinct areas with a small decked beer garden to one side. Now owned by Ei and a tenancy within their True Pub operation.

      The ale range is normally two or more of Doom Bar, HSB, and London Pride. The food range includes pub classics, vegan dishes and Sunday roasts.

      Registered by Hammersmith & Fulham Council on 7th March 2017 as an Asset of Community Value, expired 7th March 2022.

      The Duchess offers The Chiswick Calendar’s Club Card holders a 10% discount on all food and drink, at any time.

    • Duke of Cornwall Telephone(020) 8748 3948 48 Fulham Palace Road Hammersmith W6 9PH

      Reverted to its original name as part of a 2004 refurbishment after a spell as a Finnegan's Wake Irish theme pub. A large single bar with large screen TV; it can be very busy and noisy in the evening. Close to Hammersmith Apollo (formerly Odeon).

    • Duke of Hammersmith Telephone(020) 7042 5109 238 Shepherds Bush Road Hammersmith W6 7NL

      Following the acquisition by BrewDog of the small Draft House chain of London pubs, this one was renamed the Duke of Hammersmith: external signage still includes the original name, the Laurie Arms, and the "Beer Here" sign put up by the previous owners.

      The interior, complete with original ten-foot stained-glass windows, is a celebration, using original gig posters and photos, of the Hammersmith Palais which used to flank the pub on three sides until it was demolished in 2013. The various spaces are defined by exposed brick walls and Victorian pitch pine cladding and the furnishings include ochre-yellow upholstered steel-framed benches with fluted backs lining those walls and a variety of hard chairs. All in all a charmingly quirky environment.

      The wide range of keg craft beer (up to 20 taps), cocktails and pub-favourite food offerings, including Sunday roasts and a kids menu, are as expected for BrewDog. There are three handpumps on the bar but at date of this entry only one is in use.

      There is a tiny smoking area on the left at the back of the pub plus a bigger separate non-smoking patio area to the right. Pavement seats at the front extend to the south.

      Further updates welcome.

    • Grove Tavern Telephone(020) 8748 2966 83 Hammersmith Grove Hammersmith W6 0NQ

      Renamed at the end of 2022, this is a gastropub but described on its website as "taken back to being a traditional London pub serving good quality food and drink". There is a bar-snacks menu as well as the main dining menu. The first-floor bar is available for bookings. Comedy nights (entrance fee). Up to two cask ales plus a good range of bottled beers. At busy dining times drinkers-only may be encouraged to sit outside. Additional outdoor seating has been provided by the conversion of a kerbside parking bay.

    • Hammersmith Ram Telephone(020) 8748 4511 81 King Street Hammersmith W6 9HW

      Originally the Great Angel, then the Angel from 1786, this pub was next renamed the Builders Arms (a name transferred from a closed pub on Hammersmith Bridge Road) following its acquisition by Young's from Fuller's in 1966. The present pub name dates from 1996. Last refurbed in autumn 2022, there are now three handpumps (though offering perhaps just two ales) and a new menu is on offer including the "Ham Ram Breakfast" and Sunday roasts. There is a small enclosed beer garden to the side, providing an outdoor haven away from the traffic.

    • Hop Poles Telephone(020) 8748 1411 17-19 King Street Hammersmith W6 9HR

      The present Grade II listed building, with its striking granite-faced frontage on Hammersmith's high street, featuring bow windows at the entrances, dates from 1857. Records of earlier public houses on the site go back to 1798 and names included the Manchester Arms and later the Three Hop Poles. The cavernous interior, once divided into many rooms, retains some of its original features: remnants of partitioning, slender scroll-topped columns supporting the ornately decorated high ceiling and some glasswork and mirrors can all be seen. An island bar, with an attractive back-bar, serves all areas of the ground floor. Contrary to the old signs in the windows, this is no longer a free house. The four handpumps generally offer Sharp's Doom Bar and (but not always) a changing ale. A Lilley's cider may occupy another handpump. The menu focusses on pizza, tapas, burgers and sharing plates: see the pub's website for special offers. TV screens show freeview broadcasts, occasionally including sports events. Thursday is Quiz Night starting at 7pm.

    • Latymers Telephone(020) 8748 3446 157 Hammersmith Road Hammersmith W6 8BS

      Opened in 1988 as part of a slightly earlier office block. A smartly refurbished lounge bar with a large, circular, art deco mirror, which was salvaged from a cinema, in the centre of the ceiling. The food trade is very strong at lunchtimes and there is a separate restaurant at the rear serving English and Thai food. The original pub on the site, the Red Cow, was pulled down in 1981 having been popular with those involved in 1960s motor racing. It was also a music venue, having played host to the Jam.

    • London Corinthian Sailing & Sons of the Thames Rowing Clubs Telephone(020) 8748 1841 60 Upper Mall Hammersmith W6 9TA

      The two clubs, the London Corithian Sailing Club ( and the Sons of the Thames Rowing Club ( share the impressive Grade II listed Linden House. The LCSC was established in 1894 and managed to co-purchase the freehold of the building in 1999. The long-term aim of the clubs is for Linden House to become West London's premier water sports venue. The bar, on the first floor, facing the river and comfortably furnished, serves two real ales from Fuller's as well as various keg beers. Superb home-cooked food is offered. The opening hours given above vary seasonally and according to tide and sailing conditions: the LCSC website gives details. The various rooms at Linden House, from the large Ballroom to the intimate Commodore's Room may be hired for events, with or without catering: see the Linden House website.

    • Old City Arms Telephone(020) 8090 9305 107 Hammersmith Bridge Road Hammersmith W6 9DA

      Reopened on August 18th 2023 after a short period of closure for refurbishment following a change of management. The refurb retained the interior layout of the pub together with its pool tables and (increasingly unusual in West London) dart board.

      Adjacent to Hammersmith Bridge's northern anchors, this redbrick-faced establishment now has a smartly furnished interior with tiled floors and wood-panelled walls (tongue and grooved throughout). Divided into three parts with semi-secluded seating areas and two smaller rooms, one devoted to one of the two pool tables, at the rear.

      Two real ales are usually available, together with keg beers, wines and spirits, including an impressive range of cocktails. Food offerings are limited to pizzas and pies, the latter optionally accompanied by a variety of extras including the traditional gravy, mash and mushy peas!

    • Old Ship Telephone(020) 8748 2593 25 Upper Mall Hammersmith W6 9TD

      This is a pleasant riverside pub with good views up and down the Thames, renovated in early 2018 and externally in 2024. A veranda and railed-in patio area are at the front. Inside, there is a large lounge bar with modern decor and a separate side restaurant; the first-floor patio gives a good view of the Boat Race. A children's play area is handily close by. Normally two ales are available but this may dwindle to one at busy times; further updates welcome.

    • Pear Tree Telephone(020) 7381 1787 14 Margravine Road Hammersmith W6 8HJ

      Dating to the 1800s and tucked away in the back streets of Hammersmith behind Charing Cross hospital, the Pear Tree is one of the oldest buildings in the area. The interior maintains the traditional cosy feel we associate with family-run pubs, with comfortable furniture, real fires and a huge back garden. Originally the Pear Tree Inn, the pub again offers accommodation in five bedrooms, one of them with en-suite facilities. The food is of a superior but homely quality: the bargain Sunday roast is very popular and can run out early. A bar snack menu is offered as well as the main meals. Note restricted opening hours.

    • Plough & Harrow Telephone(020) 8735 6020 120-124 King Street Hammersmith W6 0QU

      On the site of an inn established in 1419 and, more recently, a Rolls Royce showroom, the present light and airy Wetherspoon pub on Hammersmith's main shopping street dates from 2002. It has a mixture of stone and carpeted floors and a long metal-topped bar with ten handpumps, more than half of them devoted to an ever-changing range of guest ales, generally including a choice of light and dark brews. Look out for the well-advertised beer festivals. Several tables can be found on the pavement in front of the pub and rather more on the verandah to the side, at some of which smoking is permitted. The usual Wetherspoon menu offers breakfast from 8am, but service of alcoholic drinks begins at 9am. The upper floors are occupied by a Holiday Inn Express.

    • Prince of Wales Townhouse Telephone(020) 8563 1713 73 Dalling Road Hammersmith W6 0JD

      Following an extensive refurbishment of its interior and garden, the pub reopened in 2020 with a new name, incorporating its likely original one, the Prince of Wales, becoming 'his' Townhouse. Presently there are connections with the well-regarded Big Smoke Brewery, with its small chain of pubs in London and South-east England, with the Laine Brewery, continuing from its earlier role, and with Punch. (Both Laine and Punch are ultimately owned by US bank Fortress Investment Group).

      The L-shaped bar, along much of the inside wall of the large single room, is equipped with ten handpumps, usually offering a range of up to four cask ales and at least one cider, plus fifteen keg beer lines. Decor is light and airy, whilst seating consists of a mixture of upholstered banquettes and wooden chairs.

      Outside, the garden has been enhanced with a number of open-sided huts for four, some comfortable wooden tables and chairs with sunshades and a few of the Big Smoke signature biergarten-style long trestle tables with benches. In winter the area may be protected from the elements with a canvas roof and provided with heaters.

      An extensive menu includes pub-grub favourites, sharing platters and more up-market dishes. Normally, breakfast is served from 9am but, under the terms of the licence, alcohol may not be served until 10am and the pub has indicated that alcohol service starts at 11am. There is no food service between 3pm and 5pm.

      Various food and drink offers may be seen on the venue website, including a "work from the pub" offer.

    • Queens Head Telephone(020) 7603 3174 13 Brook Green Hammersmith W6 7BL

      The pub dates from at least 1722 and there is a charming picture of its interior in 1839 from Faulkner's History of Hammersmith. Now it is a large but cosy establishment on the famous Brook Green, which was called the Maidenhead until rebuilt in 1812. Upmarket and much larger than the frontage suggests, with several drinking and eating areas stretching back to the rear beer garden, which is worth a visit in itself - note the proper trees. Formerly patronised by Sir Henry Irving and William Morris. Note the pub sign, a nod to the original image used on the world's first postage stamps in 1840.

    • Raven Telephone(020) 8748 6977 375 Goldhawk Road Hammersmith W6 0SA

      Larger than it looks from the street, this friendly local has a large eating area and pleasant courtyard at the rear. It is very handily placed opposite Stamford Brook tube and on the 237 bus route. It is run by Ealing-based MC Bars. The food menu includes pub classics plus tapas dishes and Sunday roasts. As of our last update, the pub offers three cask ales. Further updates welcome. The Raven offers Chiswick Calendar Club Card holders 10% off drinks at any time.

    • Richmond Telephone(020) 7602 6161 55 Shepherds Bush Road Hammersmith W6 7LU

    • Rutland Arms Telephone(020) 8748 5586 15 Lower Mall Hammersmith W6 9DJ

      Riverside pub dating from 1849 with a smart lounge bar and a dining area at the rear. Rowing sculls are suspended from the ceiling and there is a first-floor balcony bar for functions. Bench seats at the front give a good view of the river. Famous for being in the opening title sequence of the TV series Minder.

    • Salutation Telephone(020) 8748 3668 154 King Street Hammersmith W6 0QU

      First licensed in 1727, when it was a coaching inn, the present Fuller's pub, designed by A P Killick and grade II listed, dates from 1910. The pub's frontage is a rare complete survival in London of the use of lustrous faience tiling. Double entrance doors, with stained glass panels in Art Nouveau style and brass plates, lead to an interior substantially altered over the years but still retaining many of its original features. There is a fine fireplace with a mirrored mantelpiece and a large ceiling lantern. A modern conservatory at the rear leads to a substantial enclosed patio. A previous landlord won many Fuller's awards for his garden, so much the so that the late Queen Mother, as Patron of the London Garden Society, visited the pub in 1989 to inspect the floral display, the customary photograph of her pulling a pint behind the bar capturing the occasion. Today's decorative style has resulted in attractive stripped pine floor boards, half-height wood panelling over-painted green and grey and the upper parts of the walls decorated with old educational posters. A mixture of tables and comfortable chairs and plenty of open space in front of the bar contrive to encourage both diners and drinkers. Fuller's core London Pride and ESB are supplemented by at least one, but sometimes two, other real ales from the Fuller's range or elsewhere. The food offering is Thai.

    • Stonemasons Arms Telephone(020) 3976 7507 54 Cambridge Grove Hammersmith W6 0LA

      Built in 1853. Previously the Cambridge Arms, it was renamed following a major makeover in 1997. Now the decor is plenty of wooden tables, chairs and floor plus a raised open kitchen area behind the bar servery. The food focus is largely pizzas, but also includes Sunday roast lunches. See venue website for offers.

    • Thatched House Telephone(020) 8741 6282 115 Dalling Road Hammersmith W6 0ET

      Having reverted to the name longest associated with it, the Thatched House offers a successful combination of traditional pub room at the front, glass-roofed light and airy dining/function room in the middle and partly covered walled garden to the rear. The site in road fork ensures that the pub is a lot bigger inside than it appears to be from the street!

      The four handpumps (often reducing to two in summer) dispense an interesting choice of changing ales, often from London breweries. The kitchen offers modern interpretations of classic pub food along with more up-to-date and interesting dishes. The pub's website details the midweek special offers.

    • William Morris Telephone(020) 8741 7175 Swan Island, 2-4 King Street Hammersmith W6 0QA

      The pub is named after the Arts & Crafts designer and social reformer who lived by the river nearby in the late nineteenth century. It's a large pub built in former shop premises and on a wartime bomb site. When first opened in 1997, it was branded as a Lloyds No 1 Bar with signature loud music and video screens. Subsequently it was changed to become a standard Wetherspoon and just one screen remains, now devoted to news. Being close to both of Hammersmith's underground stations, just across the square from its Lyric Theatre and not far from the Apollo music venue, the pub can be quite busy, but, being spacious, never seems too full.

      The interior is 'L'-shaped, with entrances on King Street and on the pedestrianised Lyric Square, where there is a good sized terrace (half of which is available for smokers), and features two raised seating areas with the bar in between. Walls are decorated, in typical Wetherspoon style, with illustrations of local history.

      Up to seven changing ales are chosen according to the demand of the pub's many regulars and usually include at least one dark beer and often several from local breweries. The standard Wetherspoon food offerings are available until 11pm each evening.

      Note that under the terms of the premises licence, although open earlier for breakfast, alcoholic drinks may not be sold until 9am.

    • Duke Of Hamilton Telephone(020) 7916 0595 23 New End Hampstead NW3 1JD

      In May 2023 the sole cask beer was Doom Bar - said to be due to contractual reasons - but in Oct 2023 Purity Gold was back on tap. The Jazz Club referred to below continues - see their wesbite for details of events

      Had a brief period as 'Hampstead Lounge & Jazz Club' so it was good to see it revert to its original name. The first impression is of the large front terrace, elevated from the street which leads to the main bar area. It now has a large roof covering the space with heaters. The sides are of a plastic film which can be removed when the weather allows.

      On entering you are greeted by a semi-island bar which on one side leads to a rear seated alcove. The main bar retains most of the features it had before the change of name but with new fixtures and fittings, candles on the tables, carpet and so forth. To the right of the bar is a fireplace and log fire. There is a much greater emphasis on food but it is not a requirement that you eat. For those so minded there is a good range of keg beers from the likes of Two Tribes, Kernel, Wild Card and Gipsy Hill. Toilets are upstairs.

      The downstairs cellar-bar was converted into a small, intimate jazz club with its own stage and bar (no cask beer). Regular events will continue to be held. Nice to have a live music venue when so many in London have closed. For details of events go to

      To the rear of the pub you will find a large, partially covered yard area with plenty more seating. A bit cool in winter mind. Operated by Loci Pubs who also run the Clifton, NW8 and Alliance, NW6.

      It had been run for twenty years by Michael and Mary Wooderson, in 2010 it was saved from conversion to residential following a huge campaign by local residents, councillors, CAMRA and the local press.

      Over 200 years old, the pub is named after a prominent Civil War Royalist. North London Branch local CAMRA Pub of the Year for 2002 and 2003. Listed as an ACV Nov 2015 following an application by the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum.

      The key picture is as the pub looks now without its new canopy (there is a night shot which does show it) but for the record we have kept some previous images as well showing it in blue and burgundy - white is now the colour scheme.

    • Flask Telephone(020) 7435 4580 14 Flask Walk Hampstead NW3 1HE

      One of north London's best known pubs, rebuilt in 1874 and bought by Young's in 1904. A veritable Hampstead institution, originally the Lower Flask, which, after its acquisition by Young's, underwent a sympathetic refurbishment, albeit one that was somewhat controversial with locals. The old public bar, with its separate entrance, darts board and TV screen, is very much as it was and, incidentally,
