|What happened to this pub? It was a pleasure to go there and try the ales, meet friends,... The staff was always pleasant and friendly.|
Now it is totally different since the manager and his partner left. They were running the place very well.
Now the staff is not very friendly, they look dirty apart from one staff member who has been there for a long time.
when we went to the pub yesterday, the staff spent their time eating and drinking beer behind the bar. The girl who served us was abrupt, not smiling,...
It looks like we will need to find a new venue in Twickenham to go for a beer.

|After a long stroll from Harlington Corner, this place was just what was required. A big choice of ales and ciders, many seats and some good pies.|
Wish it was closer to my house !

|I like this pub a lot although gets very busy at the weekends. Although the beer range is wide, it is still often hard to identify a decent pint of brown regular strength best bitter in amongst all the 5pc plus stuff, golden ales and porters. Haven't really found the bar staff to be that knowledgeable about the ales on the whole. |

|Once upon a time, pubs were places where the people provided the entertainment - not fruit machines, not large screen TVs, but people. Perhaps some live music, a game of shove ha'penny, a pint or three and lively conversation. Once upon a time has come again at the Sussex Arms.|
This pub, just off Twickenham Green harks back to the old days. There are up to 12 (I think) real ales on offer and six real ciders. The ales vary constantly and there is no one 'regular' ale. Just a different selection, even from tiny microbreweries, every day. All draught beer and cider is (as of this writing) £3.50 a pint and they operate a superb loyalty card scheme. Buy 9 beers, get the 10th for free. I use mine regularly.
The food is good, though slightly pricey. The pies are made by AJ and are usually excellent, though the last couple I've had were slightly less good than usually (slightly over cooked meat and pastry).
The atmosphere is lovely. It is an old-fashioned pub - no posh gastro seating here. A long bar displays the plethora of ales on offer and also hides the record player (yep, vinyl) that supplies any recorded (as opposed to live) music. There is a large, decently tended garden.
There is live music many evenings. Again, like with the beer, there is something for (nearly) every taste. I attend with friends every second Monday for the Sessioneers (yep, not a great name, but you get the jist) - acoustic rock, folk, rock n roll and the like. You can also find Irish music, bluegrass, blues - whatever (older) music takes your fancy (I've never seen hip hop or the like, thankfully).
The clientèle varies from the stereotypical real ale drinker (beardy, male, older - including a guy who is the spit of Walder Frey from Game of Thrones) through to younger families and singles.
All in all, a pub I thoroughly recommend.

|The food prices have gone up significantly. Cider is as good as ever.|
