Theatre bar attached to Questors Theatre in Ealing. It's in the Good Beer Guide, staffed by volunteers. It's mainly for theatre members, but guests and those attending plays at the theatre are welcome.
This is a comfortable carpeted space just up a few steps from the theatre box office. There's an alcove with tables to the left of entrance, as well as a long space behind a wall opposite the bar itself. It obviously gets crowded before performances. Drinks can be taken into the theatre if served in a plastic cup.
There are five handpulls on the bar, with the names of the ales also chalked up on a board behind the bar. On a January 2010 visit, the ales were London Pride (£2.50/pint), presumably the regular, alongside Marlow's Rebellion (£2), Rooster's Huntsman (£2) and Bateman's Miss Scotland (£2.30). Ales are all well-kept and staff are friendly.
