Tris C left this review about The Cross Keys

Seemingly always a Fuller Smith Turner pub, this is a late Georgian backstreet boozer, in the rather lovely Georgian enclave of ‘posh’ Hammersmith; it’s a far cry from King Street to the north, thank God.
The interior is a rather long J-shape, with the bar in the ‘heel’. The floor is bare, the interior being quite traditional, with much panelling and wooden bar array, possibly post-war, but which one I know not, all of which is visible on the website’s gallery. Items of note are the plethora of sports trophies and a couple of boxing stoats, stuffed in the ring and two Briton automatic door closers from the 1930s, which on closer inspection were the ‘B-type’, which confirmed my suspicions. Furniture is traditional, but the curved studded banquette below the partially etched picture window, was really rather tatty. Customers were a mix of more traditional locals, single men, younger types and affluent locals, though few in number given I was in on a Saturday evening.
Despite being a Fuller’s pub, there were only two beers on offer, one being Pride, so I went for the Hophead at a very reasonable £4.60 and very nice it was too, served by a friendly barmaid.
This is a very pleasant pub, but it could do with a few quid spent on it and a wider and superior choice of ales would get the score up.

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.
