user reviews of the De Burgh Arms, West Drayton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

If you'd like to experience what it would be like after a nuclear war, then this is the place to come! Most of the people who frequent this establishment appear to have been experimented on by aliens and have had lobotomies. The decor appears to origonal to when the pub opened (around 300 years ago) and the jukebox still accepts groats and farthings. If you're looking for something a little extra to pep you up for the weekend, then why not seek out one of the many friendly local "self-employed pharmacists" for a cheeky prescription to get you through.
To be honest, you'd be better off getting some Meths from Boots and sitting on a bench at the station.

The De Burgh just keeps going downhill. I'm sure the questionable clientele is mostly to blame. No ales were on at all on our Friday evening visit. Even the Addlestones cider has now been replaced by some fizzy rubbish, which was off! We may have stopped, had the barman been less interested in talking to his mates. He only noticed us after we had had time to reflect on the poor range of drinks and were heading to the door! With the station nextdoor, this place could be so much better.

I was completely ignored in this pub once. I was amazing the bar lady looked through me completely like I was invisible. Quite funny actually but obviously I had to go elsewhere for a pint.

Used to be a really popular pub. Although as posted before, it's a HQ for the significant local chav population. Went in last night and found only 4 customers. The De Burgh has gone downhill fast. The only redeeming feature for me is the draught Addlestones cider.

I used to love this pub. It did good food and great beers all at a reasonable price. Now however it is disgusting. No real ale and the clientele are the local racist scum who sepnd their time getting drunk before or after spending time in court. Yuk!

In fact just avoid West Drayton and Yiewsley as there is no longer a decent pub in the vicinity (the nearest one is the Paddington Packet Boat which is about fifteen minutes walk up the high street)

This pub fills up with weirdo scummy regulars who ruined the experience for me - espcially some old bird called Pauline who kept staring at me from a foot whilst gurning like someone on crystal meth

This is quite a nice pub, judging by their grub. However, its difficult to settle down and relax in the beer garden, for every couple of minutes, 5-10 minutes max, your thrown by a high speed express train on the railway line, seperated from the pub by a small clump of trees only, still guess you kinda get used to that. Otherwise, as tatty as it is, I reccommend it!

New manager taken over. Improving the look of pub. food is a bit hit and miss. Excellent views of sport events. New bloke has got rid of a lot of trouble and is looking to open function hall. Garden is under recon as well.

Arrived just in time for the Charity Shield but were more in need of a beer and some food. Only Adnams on, but don't mind that plus a real cider. The girl behind the counter seemed to know little English so only offered fish & chips so settled for that - again ok by me - only later did we see a menu!!
Good beer, reasonable food and surroundings

it is good

When I popped in here I got a friendly welcome. This was somewhat unexpected as at the time I went in the atmosphere was what good best be described as 'lively'. The local drinkers took great delight in offering me advice on what to drink as there were 4 or 5 cask ales to choose from - their choice Of Adnam's Regatta was in perfect condition.
