Where do West London locals go?
The food at The Grange is delicious. They also serve some scrumptious white wine and do an amazing pub quiz during the week! It's a great place to cosy up in the winter or excellent in the summer - their beer garden is particularly pretty.

A rustic gastropub with a great beer garden and excellent food. It can be a bit of a minor celeb hangout too!

Once it's past 5.30pm, all the fresh sushi goes half price - it's delicious! They also stock an array of Japanese food and drinks.

Arguably one of Ealing borough's most unique venues. Circus themed, they have circus performances on Friday and Saturday evenings and they even have their own microbrewery onsite. Definitely one of the best beer gardens in London and a lively, fun place to go for a few drinks after a long week!

The Rose & Crown
A cute little pub tucked away off St Mary's Road. It does brilliant bangers and mash, plus it has a lovely beer garden. Very good pub all and all.
