All hail the draft house. This wonderful chain of pubs-cum-bars recently opened this bobby dazzler, the seventh and most westerly of its London-wide empire, and making use of the old Laurie Arms on Shepherd's Bush Road. Regulars of the chain will find most of the usual tropes: a long and varied menu board of beer; third and two-third measures as well as the traditional pint and half; a kitchen specialising in pies; and a fresh well-designed space that attracts both beer-heads and anyone looking for a smart bar. This one's bigger than most, with an L-shaped seating area stretching back behind the bar. Not-so-subtle references throughout the space recall legendary gigs at the Hammersmith Palais. There's even a small beer garden to the rear. Just one question: where are the trademark green chairs?
