They say that west is best, and that’s not just because it rhymes…
West London is home to a number of big names – the Hammersmith Apollo, Heathrow Airport, and Wembley Stadium among them. They also have some of the best pubs in London, so we’ve picked out six of the best for you to try. Psst! For a limited time only Hop House 13 are offering you a free pint at all of these pubs with the Fever app. All the more reason to check these bad boys out…
1. The Queen Adelaide (Shepherd’s Bush)
The Queen Adelaide is a perfect example of why London’s pub tradition has endured for over six hundred beer-filled years. It’s got a menu filled with delicious food options – including a foolproof Sunday roast – an inviting ambiance, and famously friendly service. We know you’re going to thank us if you haven’t yet discovered this Shepherd’s Bush gem.
412 Uxbridge Road, Shepherds Bush, W12 ONR
2. The City Barge (Chiswick)
One look at this place and you’ll understand why it’s made the cut. This might not be your regular watering hole but it’s worth making the trip out west to leafy Chiswick to check it out. This pub is so popular that even when the Thames path floods you’ll still find a bunch of optimistic Londoners sitting atop the benches enjoying an al fresco pint with a view of the river.
27 Strand-On-The-Green, Chiswick, W4 3PH
3. The Prince Bonaparte (Paddington)
Next to Portobello Market is this west London pub hero, with a famous name to boot. The Prince Bonaparte has recently undergone an Art Deco-inspired refit, so there’s no chance of feeling like you’re stranded on Elba. Particularly if there’s a pint in your hand! They may also be the only watering hole in west London with a robatayaki grill, which makes it both unique as well as delicious.
80 Chepstow Road, Westbourne Park, W2 5BE
4. The Grove (Ealing)
If you’re looking for a pub with some serious accolades to its name, then look no further than The Grove. Boasting a spot in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide and an AA Rosette for Culinary Excellence for 2017, you can be assured that their food and drink is of the highest order. They aren’t the only top-notch establishment in the area either, as the world famous Ealing Film Studios is just over the road. Who knew that Ealing had so much cool stuff?
The Grove, Ealing, W5 5QX
5. The Square Pig (Holborn)
We didn’t choose this one because it’s a stone’s throw from Secret London HQ, but that certainly didn’t hurt! The Square Pig offers cracking retro soundtracks and some truly special food that goes beyond the usual pub grub. Add that to a delicious range of cocktails, and quirky modern decor, and this place has definitely earned its spot on this list. Be there or be square.
30-32 Procter Street, Holborn WC1V 6NX
6. The Duke of Sussex (Chiswick)
We’re heading back out to Chiswick – we can’t fault their selection of excellent pubs – for a trip to the Duke of Sussex. As you expect from a pub named after a nobleman, there are chandeliers and skylights aplenty, which certainly classes up your Sunday roast. The Duke has also brought along a modern food menu that’s heavy on the Spanish influences – so you can bet the food is going to be guapa!
75 South Parade, Chiswick, W4 5LF
Fancy a free pint at one of these pubs? If you download the Fever app and sign up for the freebie, you’ll be able to sort yourself out with a complimentary pint of Hop House 13. Its hoppy and flavoursome taste makes it the perfect choice for chilly autumn evenings, “Is it Friday yet?” after work drinks or “I just want a pint, I don’t need an excuse” lunches.
The offer is running now and is for Fever users only. Everyone’s entitled to one beer (just as long as you get in there quick, as there’s a limited amount of free pints available). You can thank us later…
