Large Fuller's pub in North Acton.
Inside, it's quite large. There are several distinct areas, with a large wooden bar occupying the centre. On a Saturday visit, one side was showing rugyb and the other side football (there are two large plasma screens on either side of the bar), while a separate room to the rear of the pub was free of TVs (and also empty).
There's a large beer garden area, a great deal of which is covered by a canopy.
It serves well-kept pints of Fuller's beer. Despite having nine handpulls, most have London Pride (£2.85/pint), with a few also offering ESB (on a January 2009 visit). They also have Honeydew, Leffe and Staropramen on draught, among the other usual suspects.
Food is served noon-9:30pm on Mondays to Saturdays and noon-8pm on Sundays. The menu sticks to the usuals, a perfectly decent selection. Nachos for two were £7.50 or so, and nicely presented, with neatly placed piles of salsa, sour cream and guacamole on top. They also have a number of smaller 'meze' dishes (for around £3 each).
Accessibility: Step-free access, and a separate accessible toilet.
