|Well it's alright innit - I mean they have carpets and that, but this site is called 'BEER in the evening'.com not 'sitting down with my embarrassing yuppie boyfriend and braying loudly like an excited donkey over a bottle of supermarket grade piny gringo while another little piece of old Brentford dies'.com. There are some beers and the Belgian selection tasted fine to me, but the priority here is expensive pretentious cookery served on stripped pine furniture and wolfed down on the trendy huge plates by the whole Guardian reading goatee wearing sandal and shorts brigade. Nothing against them personally, even if they do push those enormous child buggies all the way down Chiswick High Road, mowing people down in their search for a pavement cafe where their insipid progeny can enjoy a skinny decaff soy milk latte frappucino and a trip to Baby Gap. No really nothing against them, them and their towering canal side homes each worth the price of a small hospital ward, polluting the view like a row of medieval castles. Absolutely nothing. It's just that I like beer and in the Weir, for all its cosy walled garden and views over the canal, isn't about friendly welcomes, amusing locals and decent pints of fine froth British beer. It's about those people and their baggy shorts and their thick black glasses and their spiky hair chatting on their phones. Nothing against them though as I mentioned before.|

|I start a new job in a office in Brentford and found this place ,informed by a colleague who is going there quite often.|
Food was absolutely delicious and above all fresh.
I will definitely go back during my lunch break.

|I'm new to the area and have tried this place 3 times. On my last visit I couldn't drink my pint of Pride as it didn't taste right and the bar staff said 'so?'. It didn't help that it had been through a cooler, I suppose. On the same night one of the friends was drinking lager and also said it tasted bad - it isn't often you hear that! Finally, while I think that the area is lacking in choice when it comes to food I wonder if they really expect people to pay these kind of prices for any length of time.|
