Evening until 11pm close. Easy to find, about 8-10 minutes walk from Ruislip tube. Every seat taken and more wine and spirits being imbibed than real ale and cider. Very enthusiastic Guv who gave me time to tell me about his venture. Don't know if it was layout, decor or people but was very noisy tonight.
