About the Pub

An original coaching inn stop from London to Bath. Building thought to date from the 1860s and is a short walk from the Kew Bridge Steam Museum, the Musical Museum and Kew Gardens, this friendly free house just north of Kew Bridge has been a local landmark for more than 200 years. There are two drinking areas. The smaller bar that now has 10 ale hand pumps and the Saloon/Lounge bar has up to five Ciders/Perries on hand-pump. Music is played from Vinyl LPs. Though to the rear there is a large heated glazed conservatory with tv screens. Outside is a beer garden. The Express is now run by the same company that transformed The Sussex Arms in Twickenham. Draught Bass has been retained and still a permanent feature on the bar. Draught beer now available in takeaway containers.
