This pub was editorially chosen for inclusion by Londonist.
This distinctive pub was built in the final days of the Victorian era, but has a history stretching back much further as a coaching inn on the road west out of London. There's no shortage of space inside, with a half dozen sections and small rooms, plus a first-floor dining room. With its numerous mosaics and moulded paneling, there's a real arts-and-crafts feel about the interior, which would have appealed to nearby resident William Morris, had he lived to see the pub's reopening in its current, grand form.
This is a Nicholson's pub, which increasingly means a handsome range of beers and a comprehensive range of pub classics on the food menu. A good, solid, reliable pub, right in the centre of Hammersmith, and handy for the stations.
