Mid-afternoon. Every other customer is out the back in the sun, but I enjoy the cool and peace of the larger of the two front bars.

We sat in the snug bar and chatted with a chap who was a descendant of the Winch family of the former Wells and Winch brewery of Biggleswade. All pump clips were turned round, presumably for the benefit of bar staff, so I have not listed all the beers available but they were from the standard Fullers range. The wonderful sign which said "No children under any circumstances, Dogs Welcome" seems to have gone.

The pub is found in Hammersmith, Greater London, W6 9TA.

On Upper Mall a Grade II listed riverside tavern which was licensed by 1740 as the Doves Coffee House and bought by Fuller's brewery in 1796. The main bar area is on a raised level with a tiny public bar at the front. The rear conservatory has a fruit bearing vine and leads to a terrace overlooking the Thames. Well worth a visit but often, perhaps overbearingly, crowded in summer.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 4 of them.
