Nicely presented pub but is rarely busy.Badly situated between Shepherds bush and Chiswick.Friendly staff and a big selection of beers but quality is very variable.Doubtfull that the proposed brewery will be commissioned unless trade picks up.Nice outside area with plenty of seating.location, location, location is still what makes a lot of pubs busy.

Just a short walk up the road from Stamford Brook District line station, the Duchess of Cambridge is the sister pub to one of the capital’s best known ale houses – the Bree Louise in Euston. My visit also coincided with the Scottish beer festival mentioned below, but also with some sort of craft market which had taken over the entire left hand side of the pub, leaving only the bar area for punters to enjoy their Sunday lunches. The servery is on the rear wall and there was a mix of standard seating and sofas around tables of various sizes. The floors are bare boards whilst the walls are painted white, with a few red pillars breaking things up a bit, but on the whole it’s a bit bland – a matter not helped by the large open-plan layout. A few pump clips are starting to creep around the walls, so maybe given more time there will be more to distract the eye. There are some fairly large windows along the front wall and a skylight above the servery, but somehow the pub managed to remain gloomy throughout my stay and the mood wasn’t improved by an impossibly annoying world music soundtrack. A TV screen was showing a muted domestic rugby fixture, although no-one seemed to be paying it any attention. Menus on the tables showed that main meals clock in at around the £9 mark, with Sunday roasts closer to £11. Bar snacks included haggis fritter and battered black pudding.
Given the beer festival, the ale options were all from North of the border, with four on hand pull and six more on stilage behind the bar. Having had a few dodgy pints straight from the barrel in the Bree Louise, I opted for a hand pulled pint of Orkney Northern Lights (£3.50), which I have to say was a bit below par. Keg options included further Scottish beers from the likes of Brewdog and Black Isle. A vast list of German and Belgian bottles is detailed in the menus and I noted one hand pulled cider, a spiced cider (next to the mulled wine and DIY Bloody Mary kit) and about ten ‘bag in a box’ ciders at the end of the bar counter. There is also a long wine list and a mind blowing selection of spirits, so the place certainly can’t be faulted for not trying to cater for everyone’s tastes.
I had high hopes for this place, but left a little disappointed at the beer quality and general ambiance. Like its sister pub, I left with the impression that inconsistency is a major problem and that a repeat visit might provide entirely different results. I doubt I’ll make the trek out here again just to visit this place, but I would still give it another go if I happened to be in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Duchess of Cambridge

Somewhat off the beaten track, but this pub has now been reopened for over a year so I was interested to see how things were going (especially as there had been some reports about beer quality issues). Five of the six handpumps were on, as were eight of the nine casks on the stillages behind the bar. Quite a number of 'bag-in-a-box' ciders were also available. Excellent selection - such as Cairngorm Black Gold - at £3.50 (less 50p per pint if you have a Camra membership card). As well as the beer choice, the menu reflected the ongoing '2nd annual Scottish beer and food festival'. Two rooms, both with high ceilings, opened out to form a large space with the sparse decor and the sort of semi-modern furniture that most madeover pubs feature these days (and which can result in a lack of atmosphere if a bit quiet). Overall, with a fine pint and friendly and efficient service, I enjoyed this re-visit so lets hope they keep the standard up.
