Pleasant enough small back-street Fullers pub but offering nothing special. Only two ales but the Pride was in excellent form (well, let's face it - it didn't have to travel far). Overall I rate it only slightly above average.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cross Keys

Excellent Fullers pub, with a friendly 'local' atmosphere. Not much space in the front part of the bar, but if you proceed down the side you will find a rather larger lounge beyond (with unusually light furniture and decor for an otherwise traditional London pub). Small patio at the front and beer garden to rear. Beer-wise, it is only Pride and one other (currently Black Cab stout) from the bank of four handpumps, but the quality is first class. Well worth seeking out.

Visited in June 2010

The Cross Keys is a smallish, traditional Fullers pub situated in a residential area between the Great West Road ( A4) and Hammersmith's King Street. It's on the other side of the A4 from the better known Black Lion.

It's a pleasant pub with much light pine wood panelling. A small L shaped bar at the front leads into a larger open area behind and an outside garden with a covered smoking shelter.

The pub has a real community feel and it's evident that much work is done in raising money for charity. A framed print of a magazine article tells us that this is James May's local and he describes it as a proper local "free of the distractions of passing trade". A "Chippy Menu" is offered, which is basically chips with whatever takes your fancy.

On my recent visit, 3 of the 4 pumps were serving London Pride and the other one Seafarers. Perhaps the absence of passing trade means that there's no need to offer a wider range of Fullers beers - eg Chiswick, ESB.

This is a perfectly adequate, if unremarkable, pub in an area where traditional community locals seem to be desperately thin on the ground.
