Tris C left this review about The Westbourne

I've passed this pub many a time and thought that I'd finally give it a try. Situated in Royal Oak, in an area around which it's not advisable to wander at later hours, this pub backs on to the railway lines for Paddington and the underground.

Inside, the walls are covered with pictures, some of old famous film stars and chairs are French café style. It all rather reminds me of a 1980s' wine bar or American-style burger restaurant; in short, rather dated. Tables are crammed in to the point where you can barely see the floor or access the bar. The bar is metal topped and rather high, which deters bar hogs. I opted for a Dark Star Pale Ale (£4.20), the other draught option was the ubiquitous Doom Bar; my pint arrived in a plastic 'glass', which didn't really appeal.

Notwithstanding the fact that the place was rammed, the loudish music and deafening noise of conversation left me with no choice other than to sit on the patio where I enjoyed harassment from one of the passing locals.

This place really isn't for me and seems to appeal to the under 30s so I won't be returning.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Westbourne

Compact gastro-pub, with lots of furniture crammed in. Mixed decor. Small lounge to rear, but a fair amount of patio furniture out front. Slightly incongruous sports TVs on the walls. Two handpumps on the bar, with regular Doom Bar and guest Brighton Bier English Garden (£3.90) available.
