Earl Haig, TW4 7DN
It's fairly big inside, though much of this is standing room only, and seating is relatively sparse. The decor is very traditional — upholstered banquettes, dado rail, patterned carpet — and in general quite shabby ("neglected" rather than "shabby chic"). The walls are decorated with various portraits of Earl Haig himself, along with items such as a mirror embossed with the words "Tanners Pub Co".
The seats at the front have a good view of low-flying planes over Hounslow West Station, which is directly opposite. At the far end there's an area with three pool tables. There are several games machines throughout the pub, and a cabinet on one wall which might conceal a dartboard. There's at least one flatscreen.
There are no handpumps on the bar, just keg fonts for the usual range of lagers and things.
Kake visited on a Wednesday lunchtime in July 2013. There were a handful of other customers in when I arrived around 12:45pm. Music was playing, a little louder than ideal, but not loud enough to seriously impede conversation. The flatscreen was showing some kind of TV programme with the sound off. Service was friendly. A glass of lime and soda (I asked for a half-pint, but I think it was actually more) was 37p.
They don't do food; in July 2013 a member of staff said they stopped doing it "about a year ago".
Note that as of July 2013 the Earl Haig doesn't appear on the Original Pub Company website, but I was given a feedback form with their URL on, so they do seem to still own it.
Accessibility: Step-free to get in, to the bar, to some of the seating, and to the toilets. The rest of the seating is on daises, and I think there are also steps to the pool tables.
