Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The George & Devonshire

A substantial roadhouse located at the north-west corner of Fullers brewery and facing the charmless flyover above the Hogarth Roundabout. Retains a traditional two-bar layout, with the larger lounge bar now really a dining room by the look of things. All the customers were in the brighter public bar, with its pool table and darts board. Patio beer garden to rear. Chiswick, Pride and Discovery (£3.40) avilable from the seven handpumps distributed between the two counters.

As previously mentioned, this is a Fuller’s pub, serving Chiswick, Pride, the seasonal Front Row, and ESB when I was in on Wednesday afternoon for a post brewery tour pint. Entering through the first door we came to, we found ourselves in what must be the public bar, although I didn’t spot it being labelled as such. This room had a fairly down to earth appearance, containing a handful of normal tables and chairs as well as a pool table. Not missing an opportunity to explore further, we passed through an entranceway to the right and found ourselves in a much larger and slightly grander room, which I guess must be, or have been, the Saloon Lounge. In here were sofas, armchairs, tall stools and tables, some normal tables and chairs, an attractive grandfather clock, and most of the tables had menus on them indicating that they were still serving food. A chalkboard advertised the daily special for the following day, predictably Irish Stew, and the usual tatty St Patrick’s Day decorations – green top hats, inflatable “pints of Guinness” – were all over the place, as well as the Republic of Ireland flag hung over a fireplace.
I didn’t think that there was anything special about this place, but it was a reasonably comfortable place to stop off for a pint. I’d drop in for another pint if I did another brewery tour, but I don’t suppose that I would make a special effort to pay a return visit.

Visited in June 2010

Situated close to Fullers Brewery, the River Thames and also on the edge of the notorious Hogarth roundabout is the George and Devonshire, a Fullers pub with two adjoining, but distinctly separate bars.

The public bar is what it says on the tin - a basic, bare boarded room dominated by a snooker table, dartboard and TV. Curiously, it's in this bar, where most of the customers seemed to be of the lager swilling fraternity, that there's a blackboard describing the characteristics of the Fullers beers. It's also here that we learn that the George and Devonshire is "where Dick Turpin is said to have tied Black Bess and strolling players performed Shakespearean plays in the 16th Century to the nobility and gentry of Chiswick village."

The saloon bar is well appointed with flowers in vases on the tables and more of a food emphasis than I remember from previously. On my recent evening visit, a live music band was just setting up their instruments and equipment, taking up much of the space in the room. This room leads to an impressive and elegant function room, which, most notably, I can't remember ever noting it as being used for anything.

There's some outside seats at the front on the pavement where you can watch the traffic negotiating the roundabout. A quieter and more pleasant area is at the back of the pub, accessed from the lounge bar.

The London Pride - £ 3.20p - was reasonable. The pub is a CAMRA Good Beer Guide regular.

This is a pleasant enough pub, but not worth a detour.
