About the Pub

A wedge-shaped building contains a narrow single bar, rebuilt in 1936 with a tiled exterior. First licensed in 1852 as a beer house, it later became part of Goring & Jenkins Lion Brewery Estate. After many years as a family-run establishment the venue was substantially refurbed in summer 2015 and reopened as what is described as an intimate neighbourhood pub.The word ‘Gastropub’ was apparently banned from all design meetings! Inside some original features have been uncovered with period light fittings, wood-panelled walls from local churches and a giant hour-glass sculpture. Upstairs, The Hour Glass is home to a dining room with 28 covers offering simple, mainly British, dishes (but NB no food available as of Aug 2018). The landlord here has previous form at famous pubs such as the Salutation in Hammersmith and the Cabbage Patch in Twickenham. It is intended that London brewers will make up at least 50% of the draught options alongside proper scrumpy, IPAs and at least 3 guest ales.
