|The previous comments seem to cover pretty much everything about this pub but I wanted to add one as I like it so much. What I would also say is how much the pub feels part of what is a friendly local community, hosting residents' nights as well as putting on activities such as a monthly 'Treasure Quest' which takes place around the local area. I've not done it but by all accounts this is very enjoyable and taken part in by people of all ages. |
It's also very popular with people from close by offices both at lunchtimes and in the evenings, as well as being a favourite for socialising for many others. Tucked away on the tranquil Brook Green it has a lovely atmosphere and always in my experience efficient service. The menu is nothing particularly remarkable but the food is very good and quite reasonably priced considering the location. Drink is not cheap, well over £4 for a glass of wine or a pint (ale around the £4 mark I'm told but my friend was impressed with the quality of the usual Fuller's offerings here).
The pub is also far bigger than it looks as has been mentioned, lots of snug places to sit, and the garden is one of the best places you could spend a summer's afternoon/evening. So as you may be able to tell, I'm another fan of this pub.

|Agree with the last couple of comments, really nice, friendly and welcoming pub this. Food is also very good. A lot more space inside than you'd think from the outside and the garden is lovely. Nice selection of drinks too I think including a gin brewed locally. Will give it a 9, would probably be a 10 if my Heineken had been poured better, minor complaint though. |

|Lovely pub, I can't speak highly enough of it. It makes the most of being fortunate with the area; Brook Green is a lovely place. Being on the green the pub is lucky but the rest of what makes it so good are of their own making, that is friendly and attentive service, great selection of food and drink and a really well set out pub. The images of the green and other parts of Hammersmith on the walls are a nice touch too. It all obviously pays off as it's a really popular pub with local residents, visitors to the area and local businesses alike, whatever the time of day. I think you have to book for Sunday lunches or in the evenings for larger groups. Worth it though, one of my favourite pubs!|

|A very picturesque pub excellently situated on Brook Green. You wouldn't imagine how big it is from first looking at it from the outside, but the pub extends a fair way back with ample seating and one of the best gardens you'll find in London which is unsurprisingly very popular in the summer. It's certainly upmarket, not a "traditional" pub in that sense, but then what do you expect in this area. I've visited on many occasions at various times in the day and it always tends to be busy, particularly of course in the evenings - yet the service has never been anything but excellent. |
I would say it is a pub worth seeking out. The atmosphere is always relaxed and friendly, drink and food I always find to be of the best quality (as you'd expect from a Fuller's pub) and the area itself is an extremely nice one. Also, considering the area, I'd say the drink and food is pretty reasonably priced, though it's unsurprisingly not cheap. No sport is shown here either, which some might consider is a bonus.

|Former Chef and Brewer pub situated by Brook Green. It's a relatively recent Fullers acquisition.|
It's much larger internally than it looks from the outside, extending back a relatively long way to an attractive looking garden.
Fullers have resisted turning it into a gastro pub style place and, although it's very food orientated, it's not unpleasant, with several perches and tables by the front windows for non diners. It doesn't feel much like a drinkers up at all however - instead it's a rather impersonal up market food, family orientated establishment - which is what I imagine it was trying to be in its Chef and Brewer days.
There's some exposed brickwork and beams, but the decor is rather non-descript and there's little if anything of note.
I imagine that, with its pleasant positioning and large garden, it's quite popular and busy in the summer months, but I don't see any reason to specifically look this one out.
