It is/was a strange pub. Brews its own ale on the premises but it was rancid last time I was there. I was the only punter in the pub. Acton doesn't seem to be blessed with an abundance of good pubs, but there again nor does my manor - Fulham. How I envy the folk in Richmond, Brentford, Twickenham etc who have a wealth of alehouses on their doorsteps. Further to travel to Rangers games though. :wink:

Another local council refusing to give permission for redevelopment I suppose. Why DO they bother.

I expect someone will open a micro-pub to serve the occupants of the new flats who don't want to buy their booze from supermarkets.

And the World moves on.

That's the one on Richmond Green next to the theatre isn't it? Lovely old pub. Fullers pubs tend to be very pretty, often with marble tiling and hanging baskets etc.

The Sloaney Pony used to do excellent beer. Has it changed? And my (now) local brewery, Wadworth, has the King's Arms down near Putney Bridge; but their beer can be a bit ... traditional.

The Pony is under new management who apparently intended to move away from Real Ale. The rather wealthy regulars protested so the ale continues although I'm told, not such an imaginative range. The breathtakingly high prices remain. Even my GP says he can't afford to drink in there !

The three GPs I had in the first 18 years of my life (all based in Ladbroke Grove) seemed to do all their drinking during surgery hours, between patients. Although not literally, obviously (probably). It was quite normal to see a half-bottle being shoved back into a desk drawer as you walked in.

Only one was struck off and that (apparently) was for years of shagging female patients (maybe he drank a bit less than the other two? --- or a bit more?).

Ahh --- The good old days of the NHS. :D

How can a "splash" of fruit cordial now cost as much (or more) than a pint of beer used to? :shock:

Pubs don't do you any favours if you wish to stay low because you're driving. I was charged £5.20 for two tonic waters in a pint glass with ice in a pub in Teddington. If you want half a pint of beer some pubs penalise you with a 15-20p " premium " because of the extra washing up!
Going back through the mists of time some pubs would have a little carousel thing on the bar containing a soda syphon and bottles of orange and lime juice etc. All compliments of the "Guv".
