Brook Green Hotel170 Shepherds Bush Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
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. Four real ales are generally on offer: two from Young's and two from local breweries. 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.
