Green Man, Hatton

back to pub details

user reviews of the Green Man, Hatton

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

This is a popular Green King/John Barras pub serving a choice of 3 reasonably priced real well kept ales and generous pub food e.g. an 18 oz rump for £13! It has a large garden at the rear. Depending on the wind direction you will experience very low flying planes every two minutes on their final few seconds before touching down at Heathrow South runway, just 1/2 mile away. An Airbus A380 approaches from the East and literally fills the sky, gliding overhead surprisingly quietly, leaving in its wake a delayed air vortex to rustle the surrounding trees and shrubs. A novelty and a plane spotters paradise.

I've been using this pub very occasionally for 10+ years (it's near work), but not had been there for ages. It has changed!
The food counter has gone and the menu is now very much a 'spoons look-alike both in appearance, content and price. I had cod and chips and my friend had mixed grill, both of which were perfectly good. 3 real ales on. And a pinball machine, well-maintained in full working order (CSI, so not the best of games, but a low replay score).
There are TV's everywhere. Don't go on a football night unless you want to watch the match.

Moved to the area a couple of months ago and somehow missed this place. When I visited with my friends we were immediately made welcome and very happy to have found one pub in the area that's worth visiting. Friendly helpful staff, lovely atmosphere, Clean (Yes.. a clean pub, glasses and toilets! Amazing for round here it seems) and great drinks and food!

Seems to be a lot going on: quiz, live music, poker, sport TVs on one side, even an xbox night on sundays. Girl on the next table won £108 in their lottery last Friday.

Without doubt, the best thing I've found in the area since I moved here. Cannot reccomend it highly enough. : )

Went there last Tuesday with my daughter and her boyfriend. Good pint of Hobgoblin. Toilets nice and clean, staff friendly. Will be going back for a meal with the wife ASAP

Regarding the previous review, all I can say is that they have acted upon your comments because we popped in here for Saturday lunch yesterday and it was absolutely fine; nicely cooked, tasty and hot (didn't sample dessert though). Nice place - welcoming and friendly staff, warm and comfortable, even the toilets were spotless. Perhaps the piped music was a bit loud. Great place also if you like low planes, when they are landing on runway 27L!! Would definitely come back and eat here.
JKIRK - 27 Nov 2011 15:11
Lovely old pub with a choice of beers (2 cask ales) plus the usual lagers and ciders, etc.
Unfortunately the lunchtime food isn't up to much; ordered a burger with my beer but it was burnt crunchy, obviously pre-cooked and reheated (not very nice). The eleven chips I got with it were cold too.
A colleague ordered the apple pie with custard which was obviously microwaved because the tiny slice of pie had collapsed into the sea of custard which itself had skin round the edges. Not pleasant to look at.
If you're a plane-spotter this is the place for you, just steer clear of the food!
I've given a rating of 7 because I've been kind and ignored the poor food.

AleBeBach - 24 Aug 2011 15:01
Not a bad boozer. Friendly staff and the locals didn't give me evils when i walked in. Stayed for a couple of pints as i felt comfortable in here and it had an ok vibe about the place.
Reading previous comments about planes going over every few minutes..... if u drink in a pub which is next to an airport u would expect that and surely u cant put that down as a negative comment about a pub. U cant miss the airport...... surely !??!
Had lunch here and it was quite nice i will eat again here for sure.
Crisp cold beer outta a clean glass .... rare these days i can tell u !!
Could do with improved entertainment and would result in more custom.
Not a bad boozer at all and will pop in again !!
zippy78 - 5 Jun 2011 19:09
Irritating loud piped music in bar.Aeroplanes going over pub every minute.
basil2009 - 21 Aug 2010 09:34
It's alright. Can't blame the pub but if it and it's gardens were moved somewhere quieter would be very nice. Sitting in front garden, tend to get hit with a triple whammy of noise from aeroplanes, music & the annoying gate in the airline catering place across the road which squeaks or alarms everytime it opens (can't work out which it is). Don't know it's history but sure it must have one. Play area looks good (if you are a child) but didn't fancy drinking out of plastic. Nothing else in area. Am probably making it sound worse than it is
johnwarkstache - 26 Jul 2010 21:58
This pub was very busy on the Friday evening we visited, no doubt with airport workers. Strangely there were more people outside, despite there being a slight November chill. We chose to sit inside. Courage Directors and London Pride were the 2 cask ales available. A few people were availing themselves of the food. A handy pub if you're in the area around the south side of Heathrow Airport. But otherwise, not worth the detour.
blue_scrumpy - 26 Nov 2009 19:25
This very old pub, once amid farms, fields and not much else, now sits under the direct flight path of the continuous stream of large jets's descending thru less than 1000 ft, at 180 mph, and around 15 seconds before touch down on Heathrow's South runway.
With pint, sit either on the tables at the front for overhead passes, or better still, towards the back of the large garden, to watch planes approach from the East.
The gargantuan Airbus A380 double decker super jumbo jet is quite a sight to behold and will become as common as the old Boeing 747 jumbo in years to come. An A380 comes in daily from Singapore at around 7 pm ish.
Oh and the beer isn't bad either :-)
NOTE: Plastic glasses only for the garden
mim - 9 Oct 2009 15:47
This pub is one of the best i have drank in (and eaten at). It has a friendly atmosphere and impressive beer garden. If you are a keen plane spotter, this place is for you. Overall a delight to to visit every time.
spiderman10 - 31 May 2009 13:02
The pub has happily been open since 27th January, beer flowing, food being enjoyed etc etc.......Pub quiz ...great laugh ..on Mon and Wed at 8pm..

PLEASE!
Keep_Hatton_Alive - 21 Dec 2008 17:19
GREEN MAN CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awaiting new buyer...........................

Nearest pub now 15 minutes walk away.................

HELP!


Keep_Hatton_Alive - 20 Dec 2008 19:05
Dear Bedfont,

I don't understand your comments.

We welcome all visitors and frequently enjoy conversations with people from all over the globe who come to enjoy the food and drink.

Locals?
I think there are less than 6 people who live within a 1000yards and drink every week in the pub. It is clearly a pub used by local workers and visitors to the area.

My comments relate to one erroneous comment made sometime ago. If I left people with anything but the impression that this is a happy, warm and welcoming pub with good food / drink then I’ve miss communicated.

Keep_Hatton_Alive - 20 Dec 2008 19:04
Dear ilovethegm.
I was asked by the land lady to correct the previously incorrect assumption that the staff put on the loud music. Didn't mean to "blow anyone out of the water" and as to single minded please read my message in relation to the one before it.

Keep_Hatton_Alive - 20 Dec 2008 18:58
Its a lovely place to chill out meet ppl. really good service.outside heaters, nice and large kinder garden. free car park. just marvellous.
lankan - 13 Sep 2008 23:03
Oh and it was not "your" music more of a 80s pop de obscure that DC or Manson.
bedfont - 11 Aug 2008 20:25
Went into the pub again and enjoyed eclectic music especially as the volume was correct for people to bump gums or listen. It was a quiet Sunday and the food my pal had hit the spot.

The beer was in superb condition and challenges the Beehive locally in a forest of poor pints in and around Feltham.

Choice of Spitfire, Abbot and Directors is arguably conservative (as is Old Speckled Hen) and if 3 ales are on and in such good condition arguably maybe 1 less premium dark brown and try maybe a golden ale (not a big deal a nice to have).

Anyway pub is on my radar again. Rating upped.

BTW keep_hatton_alive I think you confuse my earlier comment with an incident with some other clown - I am in the English say nothing and take note for future camp. My complaint was the silly volume on a quiet afternoon when people want to chat. Music is fine.

Are you selling the pub by making your confrontations sound so common and boasting? If pub is a private preserve of some local Hatton people and you don't want us there just say.

Local beer for local people?

bedfont - 11 Aug 2008 20:12
with respect to the music, i have been drinking in the pub for 18 years and can quite happily say that your taste in music is quite diverse and sometimes offensive when people are trying to enjoy a meal, which if you are a regular you will accept that this is becoming a very big part of what the pub is trying to achieve! whilst i myself have a varying taste in music , it is also nice to hear people say that they have memories of the pub and how fond they were of it, without you coming on here and blowing them out of the water with your single minded comments!
for all people out there wanting to vist the pub, it is great, the staff are great and the land lady is superb!
ilovethegm - 6 Jun 2008 00:56
The eclectic music was mine. I find a mixture of Marilyn Manson, Slipknot and AC/DC relaxing. I’m not alone in my taste either at this bar nor at the various other pubs I visit.
We found your choice of venue for a business meeting rather obtuse. If you need a quiet environment to have a staff meeting then book a hotel meeting room Mr Cheap Skate.
It was clear who put the music on the Juke box, as when you complained, all 18 ½ stone of me was standing clearly in view, dressed in a Heavy Rock T-shirt and Black Jeans. I’m sure that if you made you views know to me at the time we could have had a discussion on the subject of music. I’m sure the result would have made an excellent script for a new episode of The Office.

Keep_Hatton_Alive - 4 Jun 2008 18:06
Visited this pub after 10 years of not and with BA's evacuation of the East base it was quieter, which was good.

Better still unlike 10 years ago when if you got a good pint you'd take it back as something was obviously wrong the pint of Old Speckled Hen we got was very good - and that seemed to be part of a plan.

Only down side was the quiet was shattered by loudish and eclectic choice of music which I can only assume as most people were small groups chatting that was the staff relieving their boredom - self indulgence knocks a pub down I am afraid.
bedfont - 12 Apr 2008 21:55
The pub has just had a major decorative refirb. Everything is very clean and the toilet facilities are exceptional. The pub has always had a very good atmosphere. The beer is looked after well. They do serve several ales. I found that this pub is used by many workers from Heathrow Airport and there is a wide and veried custom with many topics of conversation. A very enjoyable pub to visit in my opinion
Steve.w - 18 Mar 2008 10:00
Sorry I meant "Kids to feed the animals", not get fed to them!! And in any event it is probably best tehy don't feed them.
Keep_Hatton_Alive - 12 Sep 2007 19:10
This is a superb venue for an evenings drinking with a few friends or a weekend with the family.
Great Family type atmosphere where you can enjoy a quite drink in the extensive gardens.

You can watch your kids play on the swings / slide or fed to animals in the local farmer’s field, whilst they are safely away from the traffic of the nearby A30.

Food is good quality and inexpensive, especially the new 2 for 1 deals.

Extensive range of Lagers with a few real ales available. Wine is a exceptional value.

Sorry no pool table.

Juke box for music inside the pub.

New “Smoking Area” is a class leading affair with outside heaters!!

The pub is having a new refit in October, so it will continue to go from strength to strength.

Keep_Hatton_Alive - 12 Sep 2007 19:03
Excellent pub, great for the kids. Nice pint yet to try the food. Will deffinatley visit again.
philmo_kirsty - 28 Apr 2007 22:30
If the Green Man ejected every punter for swearing there'd be no-one in here!

Jules,

Keep up the good work, by far the bestest pub in Hatton ;-)


Keep_Hatton_Alive - 6 Dec 2006 17:57
I went in this pub for this first time in eons, and was startled to see how busy it was. I had a good pint of Guinness and sat in the car park - Very noisy planes, but you can't blame the pub for that.

Pity I couldn't drink in the garden, but I have no wish to open the earlier debate on here about glass in the garden etc.

One of the better pubs in **Feltham** thats for sure
TheGP - 22 Apr 2006 19:51
In September '05, my wife and I stayed near Hatton Cross station before leaving for Scotland. I had used this website to locate pubs near our hotel; we walked to the Green Man in about 10 minutes early on a warm, sunny Wednesday evening. Jules welcomed us, took our food order, served us and chatted about the pub's history and introduced us to the resident cats. She also kindly took a few photos of us. Since it was early, there were not too many others there; no one else eating yet. The food was fine, if unremarkable and my ale was very nice. We meant to return the next evening, but it didn't work out. Still, for our first ever visit to an English pub, we were quite pleased.
BigRed - 27 Mar 2006 20:29
There once was an Argentine Gaucho named Bruno, who said, "A GOOD PUB IS SOMETHING I..DO.. KNOW!"
"WHILE A C0LD BEER IS FINE,
... and SNAPPY SERVICE DIVINE."
"IT IS THE PLACE, AND THE TIME THAT IS NUMERO UNO!"

Visited the Green Man in 1993, on a 5 hour layover at Heathrow from Chicago to the LESSER continental -europe-.
On a crystal clear warm spring day in May, I supped on their food, I drank their beer, I smoked a fine cigar. On THAT DAY it was the FINEST PUB in all of ENGLAND. -jPk



Kujo - 13 Mar 2006 16:42
Can't wait to visit this pub, probably next week some time. I hope it hasn't been renamed to the Pedant's Arms by then...reading the reviews so far has been like being in a pub full of drunken...er well pedants. Must be worth visiting just to see why a pub with a smelly bog, nothing unusual there, stirs such heated emotions.
sonoftherock - 19 Aug 2005 17:27
Oh meant to say I agree with the no glass on the grass as kids play on the grass. Perhaps a seperate area with tables for the adults with glass, with the rest for the kids-no glass.....just an idea. As the days are getting shorter now are the lights going to be on in the garden. Dont think there was anything i was supossed to say.
anonymous - 29 Jun 2005 08:08
Pub is great, low ceilings and warm fire in the evenings make for a great atmosphere. Ideal secret liason spot to bring your lady friends!

Didnt like being asked to make a favourable comment and would have made one any way.

If I could I would rate this pub 9.9/10

Visited a couple of months back, and don't recognise the pub from "Dennis'" comments.
I suspect you went there on an off day... the off day being yours!
In brief, great atmosphere, good beer, great food, great service.
Sure you went to the right pub?
Oh, and if you had a problem with the accents.... not everyone speaks fluent scouse in the South....
No problems with the Gents, either.

"....allowing adults to drink from a glass in the very nice garden area..." sadly the "responsible adult" species, while still around, seems to be on the way to extinction. So when the choice is between a grumpy "adult" and a kid with broken glass in his feet, I will side with Jules every time.
Ancient_cheese - 27 Jun 2005 23:52
I have been visiting this pub for a few years now, I cannot see nor understand the gripes about glasses.

Accidents happen and glasses get smashed. If you had children, would you be happy trying to get them to casualty when they fall over & cut themselves open? Especially if you have been out there relaxing & drinking? I think not!

I cannot vouch for the smell in the Gents loos, being female, but doesn't the wretched roadworks outside give you a clue that something is amis??

Have none of you noticed they are digging up the sewers out the front??? They have been for many weeks! I have sat out in the garden recently, the smell is wretched! If that is coming from the Gents, then the building needs to be demolished!

I for one have not had problems with the staff, Who appear to be approachable and freindly. Jules, IMHO is one of the best publican's about. She always has a smile, even though she has been working her socks off all day & night.

They also serve a Wikkid chocolate fudge thingy cake! NOT to be confused with the puddle pudding! If you feel The Green Man is a bad pub, then I would gladly have it moved nearer to me as it takes me 2 buses to get there! Why bother if it was as bad as people here are saying?! And I have 8 Pubs in staggering distance to choose from in my own home town!
Bullfrog - 27 Jun 2005 20:49
Well , I don't like drinking from a plastic glass , so I disagree that you must have one in the garden, it seems to me that the pub is covering themsleves against litigation rather than allowing adults to
drink from a glass in the very nice garden area.

Surely they could get one of their staff to keep an eye on the garden - collect glasses etc rather than punish all with the "glass" ban.

Otherwise a great pub
pjj - 27 Jun 2005 15:03
Ive had a go about the mens and it still smells bad.
They dont clean it any more. The lad that served me did have problems understanding me but it could have been my accent. Loads of kids running about all over the place more like a play ground than a pub.

anonymous - 27 Jun 2005 06:25
Sorry, Dennis

The Greenman is the best pub in the bedfont Area you obviously do not know it very well.

I use it on a regular basis when I am visiting heathrow and have never had any problems with the pub ore its staff.

The beer garden is a fantastic place for a brew and to watch the traffic coming and going from nearby Heathrow!


BONED - 26 Jun 2005 22:33
Sorry, Dennis - you're talking nonsense. It's a great pub, friendly staff, excellent food. I don't drink beer, so I can't comment on that. But there is a vast selection of other interesting and very nice beverages to choose from. The "no glass glasses in the beer garden" rule is very sensible, and I don't find it a problem.Yes, the planes are noisy - it goes with the territory - and is hardly the fault of the landlady or her staff. I often meet friends there for drinks, food and chat; I am always made to feel very welcome, and I always have a good time.
Granny_P - 26 Jun 2005 21:47
Good Evening.

I have frequented The Green Man on and off for about 20 years. It's had its ups and downs, but nowadays it's certainly riding a wave of popularity, due in no small part to the efforts of Jules and her team. With the demise of the local airline population in the last few years, this pub began to fade to anonymity, but Jules has brought it back to a resounding success with her bold and innovative ideas.

To answer your comments:

"My colleagues and I used to use this pub on a regular basis a few years ago. Well it’s undergone a few changes!"

It certainly has. Which is why I drink there again.

"The warm beer was ok, however the selection was limited."

Define limited. It serves what space allows - much the same as many other pubs. It certainly caters to my tastes, and those of my colleagues.

"I had problems getting the non-indigenous bar staff to understand my order, then I was told I had to have a plastic glass (sic), when asked why I received a very sharp reply from what I can only assume was the landlady. What a charmer?"

It's a perfectly simply rule: no glass in the beer garden, and for good reason. Recently a child cut her foot on a broken glass in said garden - a glass left there by those who think they know better. With regard to communication - you get what you give, I've found. Certainly no complaints about the landlady or her friendly staff, even the 'non-indigenous' ones. I take it you mean foreign bar staff? They speak English, and have never had a problem understanding me.

"Wanting only to drink from a Glass, Glass, my family tried to go inside, only to be told that the pub did not have a Children’s license (whatever that is?)."

It's the law. Details about children's licenses are freely available on the web.

"The pub has the appearance of being family friendly, but closer inspection revealed something more regimented."

It's friendly to my family.

"My wife said the ladies hand dryer didn’t work and that there was urine on the floor. When she complained she was told “we know”. My boy said the men’s toilets “smelled funny”, probably because they haven’t been cleaned for quite sometime."

Strange. My lady has never complained about that drier. Neither about urine on the floor. Advising the staff would have resulted in speedy rectification, were any required. Did you do so? I have smelt nothing out of the ordinary in the Gents'.

"Sorry, but previously lovely quaint pub is off my list."

I couldn't agree more: it's a lovely quaint pub.


demosthenes - 26 Jun 2005 21:42
I'm sorry but I really can't understand where you are coming from Dennis. I have been travelling to use this pub for over two years now. It is far friendlier than my local and the staff and landlady have always been really friendly. we too have been served in plastic glasses when using the beer garden as the potential for broken glass in an area where children play is taken very seriously.
The food,drink,service and welcome recieved here are in my opinion second to none.


anonymous - 26 Jun 2005 21:25

Excellent pub: very friendly and helpful service, great ambience and history, food fine, Adnams (good condition) on tap on the night, large beer garden for those sunny summer days. Deserves a higher rating. Amusing website too.

Who would have thought that you could find a place like this almost under the flightpath!
hillroger - 31 May 2005 14:24
Pleasantly surprised by this pub as first impressions were not looking too promising - from Hatton Cross station, leaving the aircraft hangers, pass the childrens farm and bouncy castle to find... a white fronted building which looks like a welcoming pub. Inside it lokks like a pub and was serving Bombadiere and 6X. 2 pints of the former requested and we were asked whether we were sitting inside or outside - hot day so outside - on the concrete?. I can only assume that if you choose to sit on the grass you get plastic glasses. Pint was fine no complaints
lout_from_the_lane - 17 May 2005 09:49
Spra,

Were the "lights off" when you visited last?

The pub is run by a LANDLADY, you know, the lumpy jumper type, a girl, a filly, a female, a lady, not a man/bloke or Geezer.

Beer is on the whole very good, so I expect "the trouble" you experienced was the initial surprise that someone was complaining about the beer.

I better stop now before I say something that offends and given my track record that has probably already happened.

Stop moving my local####
Keep the Green Man in Hatton!
Bedfont has all the pubs it need’s!

Keep_Hatton_Alive - 16 May 2005 18:37
Have visited this pub a couple of times, first time was okish, second time the beer was off and my bloke had trouble getting the landlord to change it. Not going to go back again.
spra - 12 Apr 2005 16:23
So it isn't in Bedfont after all? I like your potted history, Keep Hatton Alive, keep em comin!

This pub really comes into it's own in the summer - You can then sit in the cavernous beer garden and try to make yourselves heard over the planes. Then you get too drunk and bang your head on the low ceiling inside..

The best pub in Feltham, with zero competition, just a pity it isn't actually more in Feltham than on "Bedfont Border"

Hey, been there through the trial of the last comment maker,his humour was lost unfortunately and misunderstood. Jules,the greenman is a place of what traditional pubs were about, great beer, magnificent staff and never any trouble. A place where I was proud to bring my parents(after mass) on Christmas morning. They really apreciated your welcome.
Keep up the great work!
Do I get a free fosters tomorrow? Only joking, but enjoy New Years eve. Remember! There's only one fosters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before reading any of my comments please ensure that a sense of humour is present and that you practice smiling (Teeth showing, lips open with corners of mouth upward facing).

Now for the serious bit.

Alas I have fallen foul of the lady of the house and following an undefended trial by “regulars”, ***** presiding, I must recant

1. The beer in the Green Man is good.
<I thought I said this last time>

2. The Green Man does not serve short measures, if you are unhappy with your pint, talk to the member of staff who served you and they will do every thing they can to make good.
<I thought I said this last time>

3. The tax office have tens of thousands of rules, Jules does not.
<My sense of humour is misunderstood by all around me>

4. The pub clock is not fast.
<Honestly, its bang on. Note to self “no more humour”>

5. I like the pub and how Jules runs it.
<I thought I said this last time>

Yours truly

Keep_Hatton_Alive

Resident of Hatton,
In the fair county of Middlesex, near the Town of Feltham, not far from East Bedfont, so I don’t have to walk far to get to the pub.

Dear Mike...We are not at all bothered about where this pub is situated...as we are aware of the local history..and used such knowledge to name the website. We very rarely have a complaint about our lagers/ales...and if there is an issue..and it is pointed out to us at the time, we always ensure that the customer leaves satisfied,wanting to return. you are more than welcome to introduce yourself to me and we can discuss the finer point of looking after real ales, which is something we take pride in here. Our customers love the fact we stock 2 real ales, one of which is a guest....and the fact we take great pride in caring for the ales too........so am rather confused to your comments about the beer being not pleasant. Many thanks. Jules .Licensee and Manager of The Greenman, Bedfont
anonymous - 6 Nov 2004 16:46
As Feltham pubs go, this is probably one of the best.. But Feltham is sorely lacking a good pub, thats for sure... The point I am clumsily trying to make, is that there is a whole demographic of people in the area not catered for by the current pubs of Feltham - And the Green Man is part of that..
TheGP - 5 Nov 2004 14:03
Dear Jules, firstly my I congratulate you on having generous punters. However, i am concerned at the fact that you are more bothered about which part of West London your pub is situated than the quality of the beer. I think this says it all. By the way from experience the beer is crap.
mike2004 - 5 Nov 2004 13:53
Dear Ginger Prince......re '.full of feltham white vanners'.....many thanks for speaking about people you have never bothered to chat too/meet......as this pub has just won Charity Fundraiser of the year...with most of the donations being handed over by 'your so called white vanners'..maybe you should learn to find out/meet other people before you label them. Re the pub being in Bedfont....it is the address given to us by The Post Office.....and a picture of this pub can be found in The History of Bedfont book in any local library. Jules (Manager and Licensee of The Greenman, Bedfont)
Jules - 2 Nov 2004 15:40
Hayley - You are right, for plane spotting it is ideal.

Personally, having your pint glass almost shatter due to the din every 2 minutes gets a bit galling after a while.

Also, this pub is always full of Feltham white vanners, on their way home.

And as the Pub Ghost says, the beer is rubbish.
TheGP - 6 Sep 2004 13:22
Whether it's in Hatton, Bedfont orUzbekistan I had a pint of "real Ale" there and it was awful.
The Pub Ghost - 30 Aug 2004 15:24

Ah well, who am I too argue? If they want to say they are in Bedfont then good luck to them!!

To the Ginger Prince: personally, I'd agree with you, but look at the domain name the pub itself has chosen. If they want to say they're in Bedfont, who are we to argue? And I think Bedfont FC's ground is pretty near, so maybe that's some sort of excuse?

(Anyway, the map seems to suggest it's in Hatton, what do you reckon?)

Please note that this pub is nowhere near Bedfont!! It is in Feltham.

Another old pub, when this pub first appeared I am guessing the airport wasn't next door. Hence you could probably have a drink outside without perforating your ear-drums.

Inside is very cosy, although you will bang your head on the low ceilings. In theory this should be one of the best pubs in the area, as it is a traditional old pub. However, due to it's location in North Feltham literally next to Heathrow, you cannot really recommend it for a nights drinking.

good for waving at people in the planes flying into land as this pub is a hop skip and a jump from the runway at heathrow!!!!

Food is excellent, so subsequently gets packed with airport staff during lunch hour. Very old pub with traditional beams so ceilings are very low, has lots of character.
