Down a quiet backstreet, just a short walk from Ealing Broadway station, this is a pleasant local’s pub run by the local Fullers brewery. The pub has a simple two room set-up with the bar to the front and a seating area to the rear. The front bar area is bare boarded with the servery over to the right. The bar has a dark wood counter and basic tongue and groove bar back with a nice Fullers, Smith & Turner branded beam running across the canopy. Seating in this area is limited to a few high tables and stools opposite the bar and to the left, including a rather unusual oval-shaped table, plus some standard tables and chairs to the front. Plenty of old black and white photos have been hung on the walls, adding to the traditional feel of the room – a feeling let down by the addition of a huge pull-down screen which was showing live rugby with the commentary just about audible. Steps lead you up from here to the rear room which is also bare boarded and has exposed brick walls and pillars, chair and bench seating and a nice, if somewhat unusual raised brick fireplace to the rear. The room has a striking beamed ceiling, some of which have ‘witty’ quotes painted onto them, and there’s plenty of breweriana, more black and white photos and a coffee station to distract you. Some more TV screens here were showing both rugby and cricket, this time with quiet music as the accompaniment. A door to the left takes you out to a decidedly unappealing garden, squished into an alleyway down the side of the pub.
Just the three Fullers beers to choose from on the bar – London Pride, ESB and Oliver’s Island – although a final hand pump promised a fourth beer would be ‘Coming Soon’. The Oliver’s Island was in decent condition and I found the back room was quite a peaceful, typical pub room in which to settle down.
This pub felt like a fairly typical Fullers pub from this part of West London, with the traditional feeling, two room interior reminiscent of a number of their pubs hereabouts. It struck me as a good local’s pub and seemed to be well frequented on my Saturday afternoon visit. Worth the short walk from the station to check this one out.

This is a decent enough pub, but its faux rustic look is a little bland. There is a small TV and a plasma screen and the pub shows Sky Sports. The famous four Fullers beers are all available along with a selection of standard and premium lagers. The service I received was polite without be friendly, but the staff were running around trying to sort out a Christmas party.

I would be happy if this place was my local, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.
