About the Pub

Since opening in October 2018 as a Free House under its new name, this easily missed back street pub has become a very popular meeting place for the local area. The pub provides fourteen craft keg beers plus five cask ales from small independent brewers plus 3 ciders on handpump. Details of which, including price, are listed on two large chalkboards. Over time their in-house brewery Fearless Nomad will be slowly developing to provide beers on the bar. There is also a carefully selected quality wine list including organic and natural wines. Also, beers from the in-house nano-brewery (Fearless Nomad) may also be available.

The L-shaped room has plenty of seating, two log fires and large windows on two sides giving it light and open feel during the day. At night the lighting is just right to create a comfortable ambiance. Background music that does not intrude over conversations is provided from Vinyl records. The LP cover being displayed on a shelf labelled 'Now Playing'. There are no TV screens to distract. A beer garden with trestle tables on artificial turf accessible at the rear of the pub.

From the kitchen there is a good selection of interesting and unconventional food as well a selection of bar snacks. Sunday roasts include a vegan dish. At weekends booking a table is advisable to avoid disappointment.

History - the pub is a well detailed landmark building within the street and is thought to date back to at least 1861 but re-built in its present form by the Royal Brewery (Brentford) in 1901 - possibly early Nowell Parr design. It is now within St Paul's Brentford Conservation Area designated on 28 February 1989. Takeaway food available - see their website for details.

NB. Children under 18 allowed until 8:30pm.

Historic Interest

The ground floor features arched sash windows and blue decorative tiling. These are very attractive, characteristic, features that are found in other Victorian and Edwardian pubs in the borough, including the Beehive. The building is well detailed throughout, with a heavily articulated and characterful roof scape, featuring gables and chimney stacks, with a prominent plaque to the corner elevation.
