About the Pub

The pub was built in 1848 as the Pelican Tavern. After further name changes over the next 150 years it was taken over by Fuller's and this is now a part-tied beer house offering craft keg beers and cask ales produced within 30 miles and, with just one brewery exception, in London. As well as five cask beers, there are twelve keg lines. The mainly young crowd enjoys reduced beer prices on Monday, Meet the Brewer events on the first Tuesday of the month and various Soul, RNB and Motown music sessions every now and then: see the pub's website for details & other offers. Good-value food is another plus, with traditional Sunday lunch a feature. The canal side terrace is a delight the year round, but comes into its own on a warm, sunny day. CAMRA West London branch Pub of the Year 2nd place in 2017.
