This part of West London has few transport links (somewhat improved by the opening of the long-awaited Imperial Wharf station) and is a funny mix of gasworks, newly redeveloped office blocks and terraced houses in quiet streets. The Sands End gastro pub, then, is a bit of a trek to get to but worth the effort. Eamonn Manson, former owner of the Pen in Parsons Green, has brought in Irish chef Liam Kirwan to give the menu an Irish influence. His experiences working with Rowley Leigh at Kensington Place and at respected gastro pub The Gun shows in the food here. Bread is baked twice daily and meat is butchered on site. Choices include bar snacks of rock oysters, quail eggs and jellied eels and main courses of beef, Guinness and oyster pie or roast hake. The pub aims for an upmarket clientele and as the Sands End website puts it, "game is delivered in sacks from our customers after a weekend on the moors". Sister location is the Brown Cow in the Fulham Road.
