“Went here by accident yesterday - a comfort stop in Ealing was needed! More than pleasantly surprised - 4 big double fridges of new novelty beers including a lot of sours. The manager was very friendly and helpful (resulting in a fair few takeaways). Near Ealing Broadway station, with two decent sized rooms - loos upstairs - didn't ask about food. Like most 'Craft' pubs, the prices were a bit heavy, but still well worth a visit.“

“Large Brewdog bar in a new development. There is significant inside and outside space. It is a lovely setting opposite a church. Around 75% of the taps are Brewdog's own beers, with the rest guests. Plus there is a decent sized beer fridge. Full Brewdog menu served - burgers/wings/pizza. Nice vibe with attentive staff.“

“Visited mid afternoon on Friday 01/11/19 as I was waiting for the Owl and Pussycat to open. This Fullers pub (and hotel) is about another 4 or 5 minutes further away from Northfields tube station than the O&P so probably 10 minutes total. Trad pub décor with a central bar dividing two rooms. Pretty quiet at 1430 with 2 people on my side and half a dozen finishing lunches on the other, until a lively gang of Scandanavian blokes rocked up, checked into the hotel and were on the ale within 5 minutes ! Service was prompt and friendly but the place was quiet. Usual Fullers regulars on tap plus 2 cask seasonals, one of which was a winner for me so an added bonus! By no means a go to pub but the beer was well kept and I'd definitely stick my head in the door if staying in the area or walking past.“

“A tap for Laines Brew Co, wherever that might be these days, there's five taps for Laines beers, one for cider and the rest for guest beers, plus quite a few cans in the fridge. Friendly service and a roung & ready ambience, like the builders haven't finished yet. Outdoor seating plus two areas indoors. The WiFi wasn't usable on my visit.“

“Colin had given me a heads up about this place, and I had to change trains in Northfields, so I went into town to check it out. Small storefront location, with a few tables crammed in. Still quite lively with a lot of locals. Bar set up is run from keys, so I think the amount of taps can vary. I had one each from Marko Paulo and ealing. Decent enough. Very neighborly, homey vibe.“

“Small place, nice local feel. Five casks, four kegs on my visit. Mostly bitters, one brown ale, some cider and perry too. Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere, nice prices. Beer is decent, pretty straight forward. Worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood.“

“Visited on 3rd March 2019. Pub just a minute or so from Ealing Broadway station and situated on the main road. Nice looking place, looks quite old and trad and the decor inside matches that. It's split into a couple of rooms with the rear focussed more on dining. A quick stop for dinner and a couple of drinks for me and my Dad. Beer range was OK, 4 handpulls with Fullers, Thornbridge and Electric Bear and a reasonable keg range. Nothing to set the world alight but decent enough. Prices and service Ok. Food was decent enough too. Not sure I'd rush back but it was a handy stop off.“

TST Wines (Beer Store)
94 SOUTH EALING ROAD
“Mainly a wine shop, but go past the macro beers in the fridge, and on (and around) the counter you'll find a small but unusual and well-curated selection of micro craft bottles and cans, both local and from wider afield.“

“A nice, low-key brewpub. The house beers aren't bad, although I wouldn't trek all the way out here just for the beers. Decent prices, friendly service. If you are in the area it's worth checking out.“

“November '18 update ... Thirds now available. 9 beers on tap on this visit ... 5 cask ... 4 keg. Visited mid afternoon on Friday 22nd September 2017. Located approx 6 or 7 minutes walk downhill from Northfields tube (Piccadilly Line) the Owl and the Pussycat is easy to miss ... as I did from the opposite side of the road. It's appearance from the front is more shop like than pub so cross to the left hand side of the road as you leave the station and give yourself less chance to walk past ! Inside the pub is more café like than pub with a few stools opposite the bar and 4 or so tables and chairs dotted about. There were a couple of regulars and another beer ticker on my 3pm visit. 8 beers in total, all from their own brewery, 4 keg and 4 cask. The brewer was working the bar and happy to chat beer. The keg beers tended to lean towards German (and former Prussian) styles on my visit and the cask more traditional English brews. All beers were in good shape and well made ... no duds at all. Half pints or pints, unfortunately no tasting flights offered but prices were fair for London at around £3.8/4 per pint for cask and £4.2/4.6 for keg. Food was available in the form of crisps, nuts etc. Overall a friendly little venue with a good few beers to go at for the ticker visiting for the first time. On my visit the brewer stated they had already brewed over 100 different beers in the 11 months since starting and I added beers 23 to 28 to Ratebeer so go's to show how much goes on behind our radar away from the common footfall! Well worth a visit!“

Cheddar Deli (Grocery Store)
108 NORTHFIELD AVE
“Visited on Friday 16/02/18. Located next door to the Owl and the Pussycat (Marko Paulo brewpub) the Cheddar Deli is well worth popping into for its range of reasonably priced Weird Beard beers (probably 20 or so different brews) both core and limited edition including various barrel aged numbers. In addition to these there are a couple of other beers and some ciders allied to an excellent fromagerie with friendly service thrown in. Solid little venue and one you'd easIly scroll past unless in the know !“

“West London’s first micro pub, named after the children’s book shop that stood here before. Two disenchanted teachers run the pub and brewery hence books on display range from light hearted to severe mathematics! Beer wise 99% of time there are their own beers and often beer from their inspirational brewery, Rebellion. Their own beers, brewed in the back room, are cask and keg, many different styles (including continental styles eg Marzen, Hefeweiss, APA, etc). Hops grown on their allotment often feature. Situated 1 bus stop north of Northfields tube station (Piccadilly line/Heathrow branch). Buses E2 and E3 pass by. 6 handpumps and 4 keg lines. Update 2018 : now closed Sundays.“

“Visited in June 2017. Not obviously a pub from the outside but, once I located it, it was well worth visiting. Offers a wide range of beers on both tap and cask, and the three I tried were well brewed, particularly the stout. Services was friendly and well-informed - this was a pleasant place to spend some time on a Friday afternoon.“

“Visited April 2017. Short walk, so easy to find this brewpub. Small cosy taproom, with several seatings / tables. Very friendly service by the brewer him self. He was very eager to tell about the beers. The beers was both keg and casks, served in good condition. When we visited there was 8 beers on. The brewpub has limited opening hours, so check it out, before planning to go there.“

“Visited April 2017. A bit of a walk from the station / city center, 10-15 minuts. Large twin-roomed pub, with a large bar just inside. In spide the size of the pub, not that many seatings. In the Dining area, there was several Brauhaus styled chairs / tables. Very friendly staff, beers served in good condition. Would have liked a bit more of their own beers. They do very nice looking food, will have to try it next time.“

“Visited April 2017. Being on the main street, easy to find. A bit worn out pub. The bar area is just inside the door, which gives me a bit cramped impression of the pub. Next door is a pizza place, and you can buy and take your pizza into the pub. Mainly Fullers beer in the bar list.“

Grove (Bar)
THE GREEN, EALING
“Visited April 2017. After a short walk from the previous pub, its nice to find another one. This time a large pub, close to the citycenter. A mix of a gastro pub and a traditionel pub. Getting there around lunch time, made it very busy. Lots of seatings, mainly inside, but also possible to sit outside. The place have an open area kitchen, wich is nice to see, but you can also smell the food / cooking. The menu was traditionel pub menu with a gastropub twist. Didn´t eat but wouldn´t mind doing that next time if in the area, the food looked very nice. Some interesting beers on tap, but unfortunately not served in the best condition.“

“Visited April 2017. Placed 10 minutes walk from the station, its always nice to find a pub. Forester is a traditionel, old style village pub. It´s a twin roomed pub, one for eating and one for drinking, and with a large bar area in the middle. Beers mainly from Fullers, served in good condition, from a friendly staff.“

“Visited in February 2017. Solid JDW on the outskirts of Ealing Broadway. Prices were very good for this part of London and a decent range of local beers were on sale in addition to the Wetherspoon’s standards.In terms of atmosphere and service, it was standard for this chain. Fine.“

Grove (Bar)
THE GREEN, EALING
“A big, refurbished, food-led pub. The beer list is more pedestrian than your normal beer pub in London, focusing on basic bitters, lagers and bland pale ales. At least the piped music is quieter than other venues I’ve visited today. But unfortunately The Grove has less to offer than many places in the general area, although you may get a tick or two depending on what’s on and what you’ve had. Come here as part of a pub crawl by all means but not a destination.“

“Faux rustic-posh brewpub in a quiet area of Ealing. The piped music is second-rate 80s fusion jazz, which I can deal with. Four of their own beers were available on keg when I popped in, plus two duplications on cask. Other than this their tap selection isn’t great although they do have a very respectable choice of craft bottles and cans. The beer I had was pretty good but not exceptional, and the prices are dear. I’d recommend this place as a good brewpub tick, especially if you’re in the area.“

“Currently closed & boarded up. Local rumour has it reopening later this year after refurbishment. Cosy in a modern-Victorian sort of way. Usually three of their own beers on cask (and keg) plus a couple of others. A little bit pricey, even for the area (£4.60 for the IPA). Friendly service.“

Cheddar Deli (Grocery Store)

“Primarily a deli specialising in cheese (and smelling wonderful!), but at the back you’ll also find a range of bottles from local breweries Wierd Beard and Twickenham, plus Somerset’s Cheddar Ales (no relation!) and Wild Beer.“

“An OK bar on the main drag in Ealing. It was pretty busy when I visited on a Sunday evening in early July, with a musical duo performing in one corner of the pub. The beer range is pretty decent and spans cask, keg and bottle. Although, the cask beer I had was not in great condition (had soured a bit). The prices are average or slightly high. My server seemed a little bit out of it. I’m guessing this pub is a popular local hangout, but it’s not somewhere to go out of your way to visit.“

“A somewhat ho-hum Spoonies. Seven casks with a few of them holding interesting stuff - Sadler’s, Burton Bridge, Sambrook’s, Portobello. Good value beer. Friendly staff. Not much in the way of ambiance. Bottles of Lagunitas IPA, BrewDog Punk and other benchmark craft beers are £2.50 a pop - not damn bad. Overall, I would say this is a good option for the area.“

“A very attractive pub. Lots of natural light, clean wood surfaces, tons of seating. Decent range of beers across cask, keg and bottle, including some beers made onsite (Long Arm Brewing Co.). The quality of the house beers is only OK. The value here is just so so. The staff are friendly. Overall this is a nice pub, and worth checking out if you are near.“

“An OK Fuller’s pub. A little bit grimey and worn inside, though there’s a large garden in the back. Basic Fuller’s range on cask. Average pricing, OK service. TVs, fruit machines, pop music playing. Certainly not a destination pub. And there are much nicer Fuller’s venues out there.“

These days the beer’s usually in excellent nick, with several guest ales available. The usual good value JDW food range, and the staff are friendly and helpful (when not overwhelmed by customer numbers!).“

“The Grove is a large open plan pub, comfortably furnished and with a very nice patio overlooking the Green. They have six hand pumps with a reasonable selection of beers. It’s a nice place for just a drink although it also has a good reputation for food. (Visited 1 June 2014).“

“Something a bit different to the numerous Fullers pubs within walking distance. Recently free-of-tie gastropub. Keg taps are largely macro lager - Heineken and Sagres, Symonds Cider - with two rotating casks on handpull (Brains Rev James was on when I was last in; didn’t clock the other one). Bottle list is the big draw - Weird Beard core and specials including the Citra Pilsner around the £4-5 mark; London staples like Partizan and Kernel; Brewdog (including a couple of their specials like Hello My Name is Vladimir); Sly Fox and Flying Dog cans; and even Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. Food menu is very good and reasonably priced - 2 courses for £12.95, 3 for £14.95.“

“The bar of the Questors theatre club usually has 4 well kept and well priced real ales on - currently London Pride, Wandle and two guests. The only food is crisps, nuts and chocolate bars! It’s run by friendly and helpful volunteer staff, and there’s also books and board games available if you need something to do with your beer. Be aware it only opens in the evenings 7-11, except Sundays 12-2.30. It’s a members club, open to Members and Friends of the theatre, plus audience members and CAMRA members. I think members can sign in guests too. There’s beer festivals a few times a year, when they have 5 ales on handpump and another 5 on gravity.“
