Fuller’s ale and Pie House with a characterful interior that has a mezzanine level.

This pub was formed from a commercial conversion in 1993 and renamed The Inn of Court in 2015. I've been something of a regular here since 1996 as it was convenient for meeting my legal chums. This is still a Fuller's Ale & Pie House and I can't really see that much has changed other than the name and perhaps the application of a little Farrow & Ball paint- the lavs are certainly better. In keeping with the name, the crests of the Inns of Court have been applied to the upper level: Lincolns, Inner, Middle and Grays.

The same extensive array of Fuller's ale is on offer as well as guests. Beers here are well kept and I've always found the service to be friendly and efficient; prices are what you'd expect for the area but aren't extortionate. This place can get very crowded, with people spilling out onto the pavement and on seating under the front recess. Keep your eyes on your belongings however - one time in here my friend took his eyes off his laptop for literally about two seconds and it disappeared; hats off though to the bar staff for helping us by reviewing their CCTV footage, sadly to no avail.

This is an attractive, well looked after pub, part of the Fullers Ale and Pie brand. Dark polished wood abounds, clearly going for the look of an old Victorian town pub but of course it is a lot more recent than that. The room meanders around feeling like distinct areas even though the pub isn't that large compared to some of the brand's elaborate bank conversions. There is a mezzanine area at the far end which would make a good vantage point but this was roped off and signed "reserved" during my Saturday afternoon visit. Opposite the bar is a slightly raised area with a dropped ceiling, a fireplace down the end contains a blackened pot on a chain so most likely doesn't see active service. Lots of wood panelling, mixed seating, a high table near the entrance has a centrepiece incorporating a faux grandfather clock on a pedestal. Part of the bar back has some detailed carving, mostly wooden boarded but with an extensive tiled area along the front of the bar. Décor includes the usual framed London related prints with the more interesting stuff strangely being on the stair walls leading down to the toilets. A few people were tucking into food, Fullers beers naturally, Chiswick, Pride, Discovery, Red Fox and ESB plus Portobello Star guesting (£2.16 a half). Not a bad spot if a bit pricy, a good Saturday call in this part of town when many pubs close, although they are shut on Sundays.
