Visited on Saturday 12th October 2013.
Just off the main thoroughfare the Eel Pie is a tied Hall & Woodhouse pub, opposite the Fox and around the corner from the Wetherspoons - 7 or 8 minutes walk from Twickenham BR station.
As you enter the bar faces you in a long narrow area with a wooden floor. To the left is a larger room with tiled flooring and a mixture of bench and chair seating around tables.
The clientele on my 2pm visit was a mixture of Saturday shoppers and Quins fans who were playing in the Heinekin cup some 2 hours or so later.
Fairly busy and only one or two spare tables.
There are about 8 cask lines at the Eel Pie although many were duplicated so I think 4 different cask ales all told, all from Hall & Woodhouse.
The food looked really good although I didn’t partake. Service at the bar was prompt and friendly. A little pricey at £2.05 for a half of their own beer !
Not a go to destination but if you are on a crawl of Twickenham pubs no harm in popping in. You may get a new H&W rate, a new beer was on ’Badger Hopeful Hop’ that I have yet to add at the time of writing this review.
