Pub and restaurant near Heathrow Airport.
It comprises two separate buildings: a traditional pub building and then in the back a bizarre barn-like structure for the restaurant. On the evening of Good Friday the pub seemed to be packed and had a disco going on at 10:30pm.
As of June 2011, food is served noon-3pm and 6-10:30pm Monday to Friday, 6-10:30pm on Saturday, and noon-10:30pm on Sunday. The restaurant is over several levels with a few different dining areas, meaning that the staff are constantly going up and down stairs.
bob went for a meal in the restaurant on a Friday evening in March 2008. They were quite busy, and it took about 10 minutes before they were ready to seat me. During this time I was sat in the bar area with a pint of Guinness (£3.30). Once I ordered, the food was pretty quick to come.
The calamari strips with teriyaki sauce(£5.49) photo were fine. The salad could have been better dressed though. It also had the world's largest slice of cucumber in it. I then had the homemade steak and kidney pie (£12) photo which was very large and very tasty apart from the two large bits of kidney (although I suppose some people like that). The pie committed no heresy although the pastry was a bit too flaky for my liking. The chips were fine, but the vegetables were uninspiring. A one-litre bottle of still mineral water cost £3.99. I was offered the chance to have it in an ice bucket but declined.
The pub bit also serves food but the menu is different, and is served from noon-10:30pm every day. See the website for more details. The pub serves an okay pint of London Pride at £2.90. They also had Old Speckled Hen and Greene King IPA on.
