A short way out of town, on the North-Western corner of Twickenham Green, this is a large, rambling Fullers pub dating back to the 19th Century. The pub underwent a large makeover in late 2016 and feels a little polished and corporate as a result. The entrance takes you into the front bar area, with a large L-shaped servery to the rear left and lots of comfy seating options in the extended area around. The room is bare boarded and has lots of dark wood and muted paintwork to create quite a cosy feel, whilst seating options are plush and include some smart booths that looked well worth bagging. Once past the bar, the pub splits into two further seating areas, again with well upholstered, comfy banquettes and chairs, in a space that looked better suited to diners and was pretty much empty on our visit. The walls are decorated with various rugby themed bits (obviously!) including framed photos and vintage boots, but there are also a few cricket themed items (presumably as a nod to the Twickenham Cricket Club who play on the Green outside) and Beatles pictures to reflect the fact that the band recorded the A Hard Day's Night and Help! movies in Twickenham Studios. TV screens were also dotted around the room and live sports seems to be a regular feature. To the side of the pub there is a large patio garden with its own bar and BBQ area, ample seating, a children's playground and a barrel dispensing beer for dogs!
Human beers were drawn from the Fullers stable with one guest ale also available, but I plumped for the Fullers Oliver's Island, which was perhaps a little past its best. The BBQ was on the go, but we ordered lunch from the main menu and had some reasonably decent food for a fairly premium price. There were kids and dogs everywhere, making the garden quite a chaotic space, but that was partly due to a fair taking place on the Green outside and is perhaps not representative of a normal weekend afternoon.
I thought this was a pretty good pub with lots of comfy seating in which to settle down over a pint or two of Fullers. The place seems to have lost a bit of its charm through various refurbishments over the years, but remains and smart, clean venue that will appeal to a broad range of customers. Not a bad option as a double header for anyone heading to or from the nearby Sussex Arms.

Popped in after drunkenly missing the bus from the Sussex Arms over the way. Named after the (in)famous Prussian general who turned up late to the Battle of Waterloo, though I’m not sure what association he has with Twickenham. Anyway, it’s a Fuller’s house with four of their ales. My ESB was so-so but my companion’s Brithop was better. Interior is an elongated L-shape with separate ‘areas’, opening up at the rear with a large and decently laid-out garden beyond. Fairly homely décor and a well-maintained fell. A mixed punter range in situ on a Saturday night. Not a bad little stop, if my ESB had been better I would have given it a 7.
