Summary

“A tucked-away location between Chiswick and Acton” lends a “rustic” atmosphere to this “hidden gem” of a pub, with “surprisingly sophisticated” food, plus “a good wine list, and changing list of cask beers”. “It’s a pub for all seasons: in the cool/freezing months, with wood panelling, open fires, and sofas… in the summer, the enormous garden and the mature trees make you feel like you’re 100 miles from London”.

Summary

“Strangely rustic in feel for somewhere in deepest Chiswick” – this tucked-away hostelry is “one of the best in West London”; the cooking is “surprisingly interesting and sophisticated”, the service is a veritable “charm offensive”, and the set-up works well both in winter (wood panels, fire, sofas) and summer (“luscious beer garden”).

Summary

“In the fabulous garden, it feels like you’re on holiday”, at this “spacious” and characterful pub, tucked-away on the Chiswick/Acton borders; service is “very warm and welcoming” too, and the Mediterranean cooking is “wonderful”.

Summary

The food shows impressive “attention to detail” and the service is really “lovely”, but it’s the “fabulous” atmosphere – and “the best pub garden” – which primarily underpin the popularity of this “traditional” Chiswick boozer.
