Another old pub dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century, but it does at least still feel like a pub. The wood floor is stained and polished for a change, but the walls are still in dull colours or bare brick. Despite the large number of windows and random light fittings it still feels quite dark inside, probably due to excessive brown paint on much of the ceiling. Decorations include a lot of old beer memorabilia, some quite interesting. Draught ales at time of visit were Doom Bar, London Pride and St Austell Proper Cracker as the Christmas guest, which was quite drinkable (Cask Marque accredited). There are also sundry craft beers on keg.

Here on a Monday evening and the place was rather quiet but lots of events advertised including quizzes, sports nights etc and so looks like it could be quite a jumping place. Interior was rather dark but atmosphere was very pleasant and comfortable. Has tables to eat at, bar stool type tables and those you can stand at as well as a couple of armchairs in the window.
We stopped for food as well and it was very well cooked and good portions. The menu does have some offers on it but probably only applicable to large groups as couples just wouldn't want that much (eg five starters for £20). The prices were of an ilk for Ealing, slightly higher then the rest of the country but far lower than pretentious restaurants or central London.
Four of us had a three course meal and 2-3 drinks each for £130 which I thought wasn't too bad.
Service was excellent and the guys behind the bar handled things very efficiently. Would not hesitate to frequent again if I'm ever in the area.

This is a pretty much exactly what you'd expect from an o'neills, Irish Music, sport and Guinness. (Red Guinness was also available). My pint of Carlsberg was tainted – I'm not sure how you get Carlsberg wrong!

I'm not averse to O'neills and this one is below par.
