Great pub which blurs the line nicely between good old fashioned CAMRA cask heaven and londons growing craft beer culture. In some respects this pub could represent the future of beer in the UK.
Anyway, big selection of ever changing cask beers from all over the UK with a nice selection of craft beers in the bottle inc beers from Brewdog, flying dog, Victory etc etc.
My main gripe is that the broad cask selection was too skewed toward more traditionally style british bitters and dark beers and not enough hop forward modern style beers. As an IPA fan I had to hit the fridge after a pint and a half of Darkstar pale ale (the hoppiest)
I would ask that an effort is made to have a broad spread of styles at all times. I noted that they only had standard keg beers. Perhaps a couple of craft kegs would help?
Minor issues apart (bad luck), one of the best beer focused bars in West london.

Good choice of 12 rotating guest beers (& 6 ciders) from handpump, usually in excellent condition, at very reasonable prices. Now they are established they usually have a selection of styles on offer. Busy almost every evening and most drink ale so turnover of the beer is good. Several bottles (UK and foreign) too. Only downside is if like me you don’t like Irish folk music they play here live often and like Status Quo is rather monotonous! But the beer compensates! Good food but about £10 for quality pie and mash!

2 roomed pub with a large room at the front as you enter from the street, adorned with many hundreds of beer clips (it only opened as a good beer pub in summer ’11) and a smaller room at the rear which has green and white tiled walls. Extensive beer garden to the rear.
18 hand pulls which are usually split as 12 real ales, 6 real ciders. The real ales are all from micro brewries and a mix between local and UK wide.
Uk bottled beers from the likes of Kernel, Magic Rock and Brew Dog can be found in the fridges along with European and US offerings. Nothing particularly rare but expect the likes of Stone, Flying Dog, Brooklyn etc.
All hand pulled ales are a very reasonable £3.20 a pint (June ’12) regardless of strength.
Food here is home cooked and excellent, big portions and the home made pies are a must - they don’t scrimp on the meat in these bad boys!
Service is always attentive and even when busy on a rugby match day the staff will acknowledge you and tell you that they’ll serve you next when appropriate.
My only gripe would be that there needs to be more stronger beers in terms of ABV as you will often find 12 beers all between 3.7 and 5.1%.
Other than that, this is an excellent venue!

Simply put it’s a great pub and nice find in the area. A really nice selection of beers, locally and UK wide. Owners are enthusiastic about good beer and service which shows in their attitude and detail. Had a fantastic pie and mash meal here in the outside garden, lovely ambiance in the pub. Highly recommended.

Great place - 18 pumps serving ale and cider, great food (gastro prices, mind you), very friendly and helpful staff, a big garden where kids are welcome. My only caveat was on our visit the range of ale styles wasn’t great - mostly goldens and bitters, with no mild, stout or porter on tap, for instance. What there was was in excellent condition though, and most of it three quid a pint, which is cheap for the area. There’s also a "buy 9, get 1 free" loyalty card scheme.
