Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Pack Horse

Nice looking Fuller's pub on a corner, with finely detailed façades and plenty of original features in the three bar areas (one of which is part of the Thai restaurant section). Pleasant little beer garden out back, and (as on my previous visit some eight years ago) I found a friendly atmosphere too. Decent range of real ales on handpump: Pride, Oliver's Island, Summer Ale and ESB supplemented by Weird Beard Mariana Trench and Finger Puller from Long Arm Brewery.

Close to Chiswick Park station and with views out across Turnham Green, this is a fine old Grade II listed Fuller's pub dating back to 1903. The pub has a spectacular exterior, with tiling, pillars, balconies and fine decorative work all present and correct. Inside, a multiple room layout has been retained and the décor, which comprises plenty of smart wall panels and exposed beams helps the place capture a sense of its undoubted grandeur. The left side of the pub had a bit of a public bar feel to it, offering simple seating set-ups opposite a well proportioned servery that looks like it is potentially an original feature. A TV in this room was showing some live rugby and a crowd of men were stood in the room, engrossed in the match. The main bar area is to the front and offers some comfier looking seating under beautiful etched glass windows with another fine dark wood servery along the back wall. As with the rest of the pub, there are a number of fine partitioning walls embellished with stunning decorative glasswork here, with one such example leading you into the lounge area down the right hand side of the bar. Some more comfy seating options can be found in this cosy space which has an attractive tiled fireplace on one wall. Beyond is a sizeable Thai restaurant, which was actually the reason for our visit, where we were treated to some excellent and reasonably priced top-quality Thai food. The restaurant is a bit blander than the rest of the pub, with formal seating and a modern paint job, but it sits under a spectacular cupola, and is therefore worth a quick look nonetheless.
The pub had three Fullers staples - London Pride, ESB and Oliver's Island - on handpull plus one guest ale which was a well kept Five Points Red. An interesting 'Suggest a Guest' scheme allows regulars to have a degree of say about what beers they get on and 5p from each pint of guest ale sold goes to a local charity. Some craft keg options were also spotted and there were some bottle options beyond the usual Fullers range.
This is a fine old pub that seems to be in good hands and well looked after, offering good beer and a comfortable and interesting traditional environment in which to relax. The food certainly surpassed our expectations and we also found the service to be very good. This is a stand-out Fullers pub in an area saturated with them and I wouldn't hesitate to call in again.

A superb looking building in a prominent corner location opposite Turnham Green, glazed tilework, elaborate gables, etched glazing, some of which may be a more modern replacement but certainly in keeping, some looks art-deco which would be an interim fit out in a Victorian building, nice wood panelling. As mentioned the flooring and old door locations show that this was once a multi-roomed pub as the old gin palaces tended to be. Nowadays the main front room is the bar area, the rear right side is a more formal Thai restaurant; the food looked and smelled excellent. There is also a small snug area.
Mainly normal seating with what looks like some old Singer sowing machine tables but with the odd armchair and sofa too, there is a nice old fireplace to the far end which has bench seating around it.
There is a sign above the bar stating "Empire Bar", from the former local Empire music hall, a row of old theatre seats are installed and there are a selection of old theatre flyers. Other decor of interest includes glass jars and demi-johns on the window shelves.
Fuller's beers, we are in Chiswick here, Pride, ESB, Oliver's Island, Fire Cracker and Honey Dew on keg.
An excellent pub with a fantastic exterior and a reasonably preserved classic interior.
