After suffering a long delay on an overheated under ventilated Virgin Pendolino from Manchester I needed a pint or two so I came in here before catching my connection from nearby St Pancras. A busy Saturday evening but service was excellent as usual. I have not listed all the beers that were available but the usual Fullers range was available along with a good selection of guest ales.

First visit to this place and I was impressed, one of the more comfortable and atmospheric train station pubs I've been to. Very busy on a Saturday evening but staff were doing a good job getting everyone served.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - ESB5.50ExceptionalMight just be the best pint of this I've had. Often seems to lack condition in fullers pubs, at least in my experience. Top notch.

Very busy and a little uncomfortable in the early evening. I list beers additional to the list already recorded today by Jack William.

A busy Saturday and a good range of beers on as usual, I have not attempted to list them all here.

Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - Chiswick3.50ExcellentWow, it is good to see Chiswick on sale again, I think they have only brought it back as a seasonal brew.
