Early afternoon on a Friday, we sat by the window and supped our beers.

1600 opening time we were the first and only customers. Many tables crammed in a small space would render a rather cramped atmoshphere when busy.

Popped in at around 8pm and the place was doing a decent trade. Visit somewhat ruined by a trio of old chaps who possessed three of the most loud and obnoxious laughs I've yet encountered. Had to leave after the one!
Marko Paulo - Cream Stout4.30ExcellentIn fantastic condition. Great example of a milk stout, bordering on too sweet for me but then I guess that's the style.

Traveling out to Heathrow by tube and I managed to break my journey here for 45 minutes. This little pub seems to be blossoming, and the two beers I tried were really good.
Marko Paulo - Milk Stout3.60ExcellentA black, sweet Stout. Low strength and chocolaty.
Marko Paulo - Niagara Falls4.90ExcellentA golden beer. Very well-hopped with US varieties.

Afternoon visit for 4pm opening, we were greeted by a chap that we had met on a bus earlier in the day. A good micropub and brewery. There were five beers on offer from the Marko Paulo brewery, I have not listed them all to prevent possible duplication as many of them have similar names.

Friday afternoon session with Steve and Pedro.
Marko Paulo - Pilsner5.00Exceptionalwent well with the Old Winchester cheese from the shop next door

Evening until 10.30pm close. My first ticked Micropub in West London. The proprietors' enthusiasm shows through and one gave me a lot of time explaining his business ethos. This is a certainly a Micropub in the purists' style.
Marko Paulo - Best Bitter v24.10ExcellentA good one
Marko Paulo - Bitter Owl 23.50GoodGood flavour for a low abv

A quiet evening in here, where I was the only customer for a while. It gave a good opportunity to chat with the owner-cum-brewer and view the brew-kit.
Marko Paulo - HHB (Hanwell Hopped Bitter) 4.70GoodThis was rather good. A dark, traditional Bitter, brewed using hops from the brewer’s own garden in Hanwell. It has a good balance and depth of flavour.
Marko Paulo - Chin Chin Chinook5.00PoorThis beer clearly needs more work, this being the last knockings of a first brew from December last year. It is a very thick, cloudy, amber colour (the next brew will be fined with gelatine). There are good, orangey flavours from the Chinook hops. But there is also a medicinal/phenol taint which the brewer thinks comes from the very alkaline water used here – to be chemically balanced in the next brew.
Rebellion - Winter Royal5.40Not TriedA recreation of the old Wethered's beer.
Marko Paulo - Genius Dry Stout4.00Not Tried
