17:30 Fourth Heritage Pub and a first visit for me. Fairly quiet but not a lot of seating so we went in the rear room prior to the quiz starting at 19:00.

Another rain drenching walk up the hill to find this pub. At 1930 hours buzzing with groups of locals starting their weekend wind down on beer. Then, by 2000, the food types started taking over and food smells pervaded so was time to leave at 2015. Oh if only it was caffs for food and pubs for beer.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - ESB5.50ExcellentServed in the branded goblet. Head, condition all spot on. Warming to prepare to hit more rain outside
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - Wild River4.50ExcellentSuperb full flavour. Clip describes this as Double hopped pale ale. I found it very difficult to describe the precise taste and still can not. £3.70 pp more expensive than ESB at £3.65!

The pub is found in Harrow on the Hill, Greater London, HA1 3EF.

Located in West Street just off High Street in Harrow on the Hill. Long uphill walk from the London Underground (either Harrow on the Hill or South Harrow) but several buses go there. The nearest pub to Harrow School. This pub is on CAMRA's National Inventory of Historic Interiors Part 1. The pub was rebuilt in 1901 and still keeps most of its original features. Multi roomed with dark wood partitions. Seems to have a sophisticated food operation. It is believed that Winston Churchill drank here.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 8 different beers and tried 4 of them.
