This pub is tucked away in a little street between the canal and Warwick Avenue and is about one minute's walk from the tube.

It's an attractive smallish place with two bars, 'etched' (actually self-adhesive plastic transfer) windows, wood panelling, a bare floor and fine fireplaces with real coal fires on chilly nights. Food is served but it's more 'posh' burgers than gastro; there's a quiz on Wednesdays. The Irish landlady is welcoming and the staff are friendly; service is very good. Decent music plays at an agreeable level. There's a TV which plays sport occasionally with the sound down, but thankfully it's not a focal feature of the pub. The lavatories are tiny, though there's little the pub can do about this. Clients are a very mixed bunch (this is a very wealthy area mixed with some local estates).

There are typically four ales on: GK's IPA, Truman's Zephyr and Sambrook's Wandle and a fourth on rotation - the beers here are always in good nick. In addition, there are craft beers on keg.

This is a very decent boozer indeed. However...some of the dross that can't stop swearing, and probably venture in here from the Eagle up the road, are occasionally in attendance; this is something of a family orientated pub. Worse though is the large presence of dogs. I really don't fancy being glassed in the face by someone who has tripped over a dog. Worse still, small dogs are more than welcome to curl up and go to sleep ON THE TABLES! WHERE FOOD IS SERVED!! It's for this reason that I'm deducting 4 points.

Nevertheless, dogs and occasional knuckle-draggers aside, this is a very decent place and makes for a great mini crawl with the Warrington, Prince Alfred and Bridge House just over the canal in W2. Just don't eat here or touch the wet puddle on your table...

Tucked away down a pleasant little mews style side street, handy for both Warwick Avenue tube station and Little Venice, this is a smart, two room, Grade II listed pub. On approach you can't fail to miss the marvellous Victorian lamp with its huge elaborate bracket, and as you enter, you pass through an attractive lobby with a nice mosaic floor. You emerge into the right hand side of the pub with the servery along the left hand wall. There is a lot of nice dark wood in this room, notably on the bar counter and back, as well as the tongue and groove panels on the opposite wall. The front windows have some fine etched glass and a few nice stained panes, with a limited amount of seating underneath allowing you a closer look. Standard tables and chairs run down the right hand wall, passing a nice period fireplace and old pendulum clock as they go. A frieze runs around the top of the wall,s which have been decorated with a mix of old and more contemporary paintings plus the odd brewery mirror, whilst the ceiling is very decorative itself. A rear space, partly hidden behind a section of partitioning wall, has a couple more tables and modern wallpaper. To the left of the bar, there is a small lounge with limited seating around four or five tables in a compact, smart wood panelled room with a lovely, detailed fireplace. Music played unobtrusively throughout my stay and there was a good buzz from the locals who were in on my Sunday afternoon visit, despite many of them migrating out to the pavement at the front of the pub.
There were four ales available on this visit - Sambrooks Wandle, Sharps Doom Bar, Greene King IPA and Truman's Swift (£3.70). I gave the latter a try and thought it was a perfectly passable pint served up by a friendly barman who was very patient dealing with a dithering group of tourists.
I found this place very relaxing and spent longer than I'd intended supping my pint and reading my paper. It has a fine interior that perhaps gets overlooked when compared to some of Maida Vale's more ornate pubs, and offers good beer and a friendly welcome to boot. I'd certainly be happy to make a return visit.

Long-overdue revisit found three on, a not particularly imaginative line-up of GK IPA, Doom Bar and, thankfully, Truman's Swift (in very good nick) at prices far more realistic than the rip-off merchants up the road at the Alfred. Interior remains as described below - CAMRA heritage-listed and well-worth a quick Bakerloo detour to sample.

June 2009
Popped in for a beer on the way to Wembley Arena to catch the might that is Girls Aloud live. This is a lovely backstreet boozer a short walk away from the tube but just far enough away not to attract the dregs (not that appear to be too many in this area, mind you). The interior is set over two rooms which sport lots of Victorian period features, stained glass panels, leaded windows and wood-heavy. There's an open fire for the colder weather plus a selection of old-skool board games such as draughts and chess. A decent selection of three ales on my visit – my two (Doombar and Adnams) were kept well and I enjoyed them. One downside is the unisex loo – not great in this day and age, could imagine the ladies not being happy to do their business in there on a busier night. Overall, I'd recommend it and would say it's worth the 5 minute diversion on the Bakerloo if you're at Paddington with a bit of time to kill. Especially recommended if you're off to Wembley and fancy a proper beer in decent surroundings beforehand. Rated 7
