Another local Fuller's pub that has now closed. They seem to be closing everything in this part of West London.

What can I say. "The pub that Fuller's forgot" is a very apt statement. That said, let me update you on a few points. Fred no longer runs the pub, instead Sean and Craig Deacon-Adams run it now, and have done since 2010. The beer is excellent (as approved by Cask Marque and being Fuller's own Master Cellarman Award.

Their Sunday carvery is becoming the talk of the area, with a weekly selection of at least three meats every week, FRESH vegetables, and all the trimmings. A fine selection of freshly made starters (I recommend the home-made pate) and at least four dessert options.

It may not be a-la carte, but it is excellent food at an unbelievable price. A meal for four people is under £60.00, which includes drinks!!

The licencee is Sean who, with his waiting and bar staff, ensure a warm welcome every time.

They have Karaoke every other Friday and put on a selection of live singers and bands every month.

A former locals-only establishment which is welcoming an altogether younger and more varied crowd while retaining its original feel.

My opinion - try it out - you may just be surprised. I return regularly and I NEVER thought I would after reading old reviews!!

Returned to the Angel for its beer festival yesterday. On my previous visit, I hadn't accounted for the fact that there are 3 separate rooms. There is a second bar at the front and a function room at the rear where the festival beers were all on stillage. I appeared to be the only person there for the festival. Although at least one other person was drinking the festival ales. Beers on were Fullers London Pride, HSB, Chiswick & Brit Hop, 8 Sails Old Colony, Adnams Gunhill, Buffys Mucky Duck, Castle Rock Elsie Mo, Darkstar American Pale Ale, Marstons Dirty Tackle, Sharps Doom Bar, Skinners Betty Stogs, St Peters Suffolk Gold & Exmoor Gold. A pub that making a genuine effort, but has a way to go.

I've passed here on the Uxbridge Road many a time, without even noticing this pub. We decided to pop in today based on the beerintheevening score. It's quite a large pub with two separate drinking areas and a large central bar. Fullers London Pride is the only real ale. However the pub does not warrant a 7/10 rating. I'll plump for a 3 and am possibly being generous. There is very little seating available. Most of the bar area we sat in was devoted to a games area with a darts board and a pool table taking up all the space. Bar stools had obviouslly been re-upholstered to a very poor standard and the rest of the decoration was dated. The glasses we had both had lipstick marks. Very much a locals pub.

Another visit, with my father. We go about every two months when I visit. Always friendly even though very much a locals pub. Pride consistently good.

Roasts on sunday only 3.95. Fred must be here still after all!

Clientele is friendly enough - 'goodbye young'un' a regular said to me as we left (I'm 60). Landlord can be a bit surly. Beer well kept. How long can it last - looks very run down.

Oh dear - looks like Fred isn't here anymore. No toastie's at lunchtime, a cloudy pint, and bar staff who are more interested in reading the local paper. At least it hasn't been tarted up yet!

Timewarp. Fans of London pubs should stop here for a sup. It's an incredible place.

It's still here - as of last Saturday - so is Fred Bignold ! ( and his wife Evelyn ). Still a Fullers pub, to boot.
A real time warp of a place, but with the inevitable charm that such pubs have. Your Slug and Lettuces, All Bar One's etc can't hold a candle to this place.
Long may it flourish

Old time local. Mr Fred Bignold is the guvnor @ 45 yrs @ it he must be doing something right?

Well I frequent it with numerous others, this is the original pub time(Fullers) forgot. The public has not had a lick of paint in many a year and we like like that! unique pub juke box with lot's of nice blues that keeps no brainer kids out! Also there is racial tension amongst Celts corner & the Saxons especially during 6 nations and rugby world cup. Terry Wogan is appreciated here as it is Tog central.
VISIT SOON! as places like this are disappearing fast.
The Fullers beer does it for me.
