Situated opposite a police station, this is an attractive Victorian backstreet locals' pub with a raised front beer patio, heaters and hanging baskets for flowers which I first visited around 17 years ago and immediately noticed that the bar area has been completely rebuilt and the lavatories are now decent; a big improvement.
The interior is a mix of simple original and contemporary traditional with a raised area to the rear. Furniture is basic pale wood as is the new bar. The left-hand wall features a large photo of the pub in the late 19th century/early 20th century. Naturally, there's food and I have actually eaten here a couple of times and it's very good but not the cheapest; a typical three-course meat-based meal will set you back around £38, seating is wherever you can get a table.
Service is a little relaxed but generally fine with four ales: GK IPA, Sambrook's Wandle, Hogsback T.E.A and Twickenham's Spring Ale which was very good and at £4.45 a pint, a steal for this area.
W11 isn't a hotbed of good pubs, but this is certainly the joint best.

They had four ales on when I dropped in here Tuesday lunchtime - GK IPA, Truman's Runner, Sambrook's Wandle, and Portobello Autumn Red (£3.95 a pint). It's not a sensational selection, but OK nonetheless. Food was obviously available as just about everybody else was eating, but I didn't see a menu. But it's a gastropub, so I wouldn't expect to see much pub grub on it. It seems that table service is available in the bar area at the front, where I was sitting. A room at the left beyond the bar counter had all tables laid for diners, but although most of the tables back there were unoccupied most of the diners prefered to eat in the bar area. But I found somewhere to sit at a large table in the centre of the bar. There are some more seats apparently for drinkers at the back past the dining area, so this pub is quite a bit larger than it looks from the front. There's a bit of outside seating at the front.

There are only normal tables and chairs in here; no fruit machines or others of their ilk; and I didn't see any TVs. It's not that sort of place. But of course they did have some typical gastro features, such as the large vase of lilies on the counter, large jars of nuts and olives, and one of those demi-john like water dispenser thingies on the counter. There's mainly arty decor on the walls, although I did see a fairly nice large mirror, including an ancient and much damaged framed advert for something called Pap'anis, which I guess must be (or have been) a foreign drink - French probably.

This is an old Victorian backstreet pub. In fact on one wall is an old black and white photograph of the pub, probably from the 19th Century. There's not much of heritage value left now, but I did see some stained glass panels at the tops of the windows, and there was a bit of a frieze featuring bas-relief heads. It's still obviously dog friendly as there was a veritable pack of the things in there when I visited, but to be fair to the owners, when one of them decided on a bout of "yipping" it was soon banished to the car.

This pub is OK for a swift, but probably not somewhere you'd want to spend a great deal of time unless you're eating.
