Cracking pub with real ales and a famous Sunday lunch... and a bonus - Monday nights are BYO bottle!

The Colton Arms

The Colton Arms

The Colton Arms is a great pub right next to Queens Club. It has just undergone a major refurbishment and looks so beautiful inside and out. There is a lovely beer garden, a great new chef and a wonderfully friendly team. They also have quiz nights, steak nights, deals on prosecco, brunch and a cracking Sunday roast. I couldn't recommend it more.

"Hammersmith Bridge is the oldest suspension bridge in London. The Victorian ironwork was the first suspension bridge to be built over the River Thames, linking Hammersmith with Barnes. It is now a Grade II listed structure."

It's always a good night out at the Hammersmith Apollo, which stages some of the world's biggest artists and comedians.
