user reviews of the Hogarth, Teddington

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

A good pub, I used to work next door, at the betting shop, drinking every afternoon for 3-4 hours in there...happy days!!! What a staff behind the wheel by that time! Ekta, Arthur the manager, Erik, Paul 'the not polite polish', Helen (Miss Teddington 2005), Eddie the brazilian. Nowadays I go there only once a year, but I feel sad cause I've left a lot of feelings in that place...back there it was the best moment of my life, all my friends there, John, Paul, Ronnie and Harpreet drinking with me!!That place makes me cry of nostalgia, what a feeling! Cheers to The Hogarth!! Steve Mansell (ex-manager at Ladbrokes Teddington Broad Street).

Fullers pub in the middle of Teddington. Fullers now offer three ales as a matter of course and I had good old London Pride. Decor is fairly stark but not unpleasant. Secluded outside area out the back is good to sit in. At least Fullers haven't gone the upmarket route like a certain south of the river former brewery.

Dropped in for a quick quiet pint one mid-Saturday afternoon to watch some Heineken Cup rugby on the screen. Very fine pint of Autumn Ale. Crisps are massively overpriced. Good subdued congenial atmosphere. Middle-aged crowd. Suited me.

Relaxed watering hole. Always quiet. Good service.

Dropped in for a couple of beers. Nice welcome and well kept Bengal Lancer.
richardh - 18 Oct 2012 14:36
Under new management. Much brighter.
Pride, chiswick and Gales Seafarers as regular ales.
Big screen gone, large tv's adorn the walls.
Food cheap and cheerful.
Rumours of a pool table coming.

Seems good so far.

Fairly so so, packed on football days though never any sign of trouble. Usually empty any other time.
Ventoux - 7 Sep 2010 20:32
First walked in on a karaoke night by chance. Singing was terrible but the night was great. Been back a few times, quiet and empty but still made welcome.
Sodalltodo - 28 May 2010 19:00
???? walked in Sat night at 9.30pm....empty ! Says a lot about a pub

I was back in the Hogarth at the weekend, one stop on a tour of Teddington pubs. I was glad I waited until this stop to get some food, the pizzas are pretty good and very reasonably priced. The staff seemed friendly and there was a lively atmosphere.

Apparently they are getting the 3D football, should be worth a look
millertime - 18 Mar 2010 09:55
Avoid it with those grumpy midget managers
chicago - 19 Jan 2010 18:14
It's alright. Fullers pub which gets busy when there's sport on, I've never tried the food. Fine if you're in the area and fancy a pint, I wouldn't say it's worth going out of your way to spend a whole evening though.
thehonesttruth - 28 Nov 2009 15:49
Joeboy...just because i disagree with you about this place doesent mean 'i have no life' does it ? Bit of an unecessary comment i think.
What makes you right and me wrong then ??
You like it and i don't. It's all about opinions.

nickthefish - 21 May 2009 08:19
I think that nickthefish has no life!!! This is a great pub!! The staff make me feel very welcome and the london pride is excellent.
joeboy - 20 May 2009 20:24
Nothing much going for this place...standard fullers ale and indifferent staff. Has about as much character as a cardboard box.
nickthefish - 17 May 2009 20:48
this is one off the best pubs in teddington good food pizza and pint for less then £8 at lunch times friendly barstaff good managment team and you can have a good banter with whoever is on. there that approachable and easy going and good range of largers on tap a must for all sports fans its got 2 tv's 1 big screen so whatever the match you can watch it very busy when its a big match but never no idiots in all a friendly crowd and a good mix of old and new faces what more can you ask for a local bar
teddyboy - 25 Mar 2009 18:11
Really good pub! Great lagers on tap!!

Food is fantastic!! Great specials and brilliant pizzas!! Being a footie pub it accomodates all supporters with 3 tellies!!!
Very friendly bar staff from all over the globe, they are all really approachable. Good management team!!!

A bit pricy but a good all rounder.

beerlovely - 8 Mar 2009 22:43
High St Fullers pub, with a rather bland and modern feel inside. Knocked through into one space, the lighting is too bright and the nondescript dance type music a little too loud. The bar on the side wall has several handpumps but only Pride and the former Gales HSB being served. The old guy sitting at the bar was so off his face he could hardly function, yet he continued to be served.

Not one to visit again I think.

I used to go into this pub regularly when I was a student in Twickenham in the mid 90ís and it had a lovely atmosphere and an oldie worldie pub feel which made it a great drinking experience. How times have changed. I would expect a pub located on a high street to be rammed on Christmas Eve but I was falling over the tumble weed as I walked in. The place has also had a make over since my last visit and it now looks like any other corporate pub (e.g. All Bar One) and it would seem that with the make over, the soul has been ripped out of the place. This was a shame because it had a nice selection of beers and what looked like an interesting food menu. I wish Fullers would stop decorating their pubs in this manner as it is spoiling the atmosphere of what were nice local pubs. No wonder people have stopped going to pubs as much as they use to.
LennyBanter - 27 Dec 2008 16:12
Not a bad pub. I'm female and go in but avoid it when there's football on as it seems to pull in rather a strange clientele who are a bit creepy.

Other times it's fine. The staff are friendly, the beer and wine are good and it's handy for Bar Estilo for tapas after a few pints. What more could you want?
merluzzo - 5 Dec 2008 14:14
Nice little boozer, friendly bar staff. The wind blew my pint over (along with all my papers) when I was sat in the garden and the guy behind the jump got me a free refill.

Nice big pull-down screen for when the footer is on. Given its on the main high street they do pretty well to keep the riff-raff out. Gorgeous pizza's.
whoagigi - 1 Dec 2008 19:14
A rather nice pub, though I must admit I would avoid it if the football was on!
I don't know whether they still have live music in the evening but I saw the Strawbs (acoustic version) in here about 4 years ago!
malo66 - 10 Oct 2008 20:56
Dull, unexciting.
Handy for the bus stop.
Bland corporate makeover makes it a bit All Bar One decor wise.
Full of men - hardly any women - which is strange for a high street pub.
TeddingtonBloke - 11 Jun 2008 10:12
'gastropub' but nice selection of beers.
Zod - 28 May 2008 15:09
agree withb, good pub to have a beer watch the football without being looked down on if your not ordering overpriced food
proper_pub_people - 28 May 2008 00:50
A perfectly good suburban High Street pub. Good sports presentation and the draft beer seems well looked after. If you're after a pub with charm, interest and choice, for heaven's sake go to the Roebuck up the road in Hampton Hill. If you want a decent back-street boozer, you must head to the Masons Arms just 3 minutes away. If you're thinking that you can't be bothered to move, then the Hogarth is a perfectly good place to remain stationary in.
Dave_the_Bee - 3 May 2008 02:00
It is ok during the week at lunchtimes - pizza deal is good.

Chav central, especially when football is on (constantly). The wine may be good but everyone seems to drink lager.
Teddy_Bloke - 5 Mar 2008 14:55
The negative comments about this pub being full of lager louts is 1) a bit of an exaggeration and 2) missing the point! This pub is not trying to be a gastro pub, I would certainly not go in there for a girly night out or a three course meal! I do however, think, that it is one of the few pubs left in Teddington that still shows the football, on big screens and doesnt apologise for doing so. So, if you want a nice night out with your friends or partner, in a nice bar with great food then give it a miss, but if you fancy popping in somewhere to watch the footie and have a pint then you won't have any complaints. - 13 Feb 2008 16:19

A friend of mine recently ate in the Hogarth and remarked that the burgers were very good. This is high praise from hm as he is a bit of a gourmat.
grayghost - 29 Dec 2007 07:48
The Hogarth Teddington is run by a very friendly crew from very different parts of the globe.

The wine list is good, particulary the house white and the reds are are little more robust.

The food is is usuual for the pub trade but where it scores ahead of the others is the ithas a proper pizza oven and the pizza are extremely good valuve for money. (pint & a Pizza special offer particulary good at lunchtimes).

They have recently added some new didhes to the menu and the risotto was particulary good when sampled.

grayghost - 15 Dec 2007 10:15
Full of louts and lager louts? How appropriate. Hogarth would have been fascinated.
CJG - 5 Dec 2007 16:07
Full of Chavs / lager louts.
Big screen football kills all other attempts to make this a nice pub.

This could be such a good pub.
For the number of women who venture in, it must just as well be a gay pub.

Maggie_Tul - 5 Dec 2007 15:36
I like this pub generally but it does what it says on the Tin....
A Managed house on a main street, lots of passing trade, most people are nice, a few idiots.
Good Beer, (Fullers), Footy on TV, Staff ok but slightly disinterested.
I like the pizza & pint deal- not the best ever pizzas but quick n tasty - great value for money).
JamesDLord - 31 Oct 2007 13:34
The old pub had two saving graces: the fact that it was a Fullers pub, and the speed of service (even when it was crowded you got served quickly and efficiently). The refurbished pub has only one saving grace: it's a Fullers pub. Staff are typical managed house staff: polite enough bur young and inexperienced. And the pub's soulless.
Teddy_Boy - 29 Oct 2007 15:21
Food's nice, beer's OK but very limited selection (ie, Pride and HSB, recently, no sign of the Fullers bottle-conditioned beers), super expensive but everything is around here.
bloodnok - 14 Sep 2007 09:59
After reading the reviews for this I was worried because four of our men have been eating there. No need to worry it is obviously sour grapes from someone. The food was excellent the service was good and everywhere was very clean.
GADEVELOPMENT - 19 Mar 2007 12:31
There really is no good reason to visit this place.
As said it is pointless. No redeeming features whatsoever.
MrEddie - 30 Jan 2007 21:32
The beers is usually very good here, especially in the summer when they sell some of Fullers lighter beers. There's a good wine list as well. Good atmosphere in the winter when they show the footie. Haven't tried the food as it always looks dreadful.
draughtbeer - 17 Jul 2006 18:33
Long-established Fuller's house that lost nearly all of its character when it was extended to the back. Nice without making a lot of impression. Fuller's usual ales in good nick. Close but no cigar. Worth a half only on a crawl.
BeerHeaven06 - 4 Jul 2006 17:34
Nothing special to see here. Bog standard pine decor and flooring. Money making location only. No character.

Still....the pints were cold and tasted fine.
Zod - 1 Jun 2006 12:54
Cranky staff- seem to have trouble serving customers! Nice garden. Food options very limited. Four of the 8 beers 'not available today'- this bar needs a serious overhaul..
BestBeerHunter - 26 Feb 2006 10:52
Ok, no character but a fine pub. Expensive.
DrMRB - 26 Jan 2006 18:01
Largely devoid of character, but wonderful beer, with free tastings.
deadotter - 24 Nov 2005 12:32
Went there for lunch-and there's no a single vegetarian main course on the menu-shocking!!!

they have got leffe on tap though.
stones - 14 Nov 2005 14:09
Was a really poor old mans pub.

Drum roll

Now a really poor GASTRO PUB.
KingRaama - 27 Oct 2005 11:53
Was full of confused locals who didn't really understand the awful new tables and chairs. I didn't fully understand them either.

They did have Jack Frost on tap, though, and the staff were friendly. Just a shame it's so bland inside.
newmalden - 22 Mar 2005 12:51
Went back in here after a longish absence and was surprised - Some pubs take on an entirely different fell during the day as they do during the night. This place always feels hot, too well lit and cramped at night.
On a Saturday lunchtime though, it was a different story - Enjoyed a more than half decent lunch and pint whilst watching the footy.

Would definitely recommend a visit therefore in the day.
TheGP - 21 Mar 2005 15:41
not really my kind of pub since the refurbishment, but it's friendly and welcoming enough. Does anybody know a pub that is owned by Fullers with as many guest beers as this ? Strange, because there doesnt seem to be much beer trade. More of a youngsters pub, who of course drink lager
John - 13 Oct 2004 16:31
I know what you mean Gingerprince, but having just come from the Adelaide, this place was an absolute life saver the other night....

I commented in Dec 03 that it was a bit bright back then - well it was just right last Sat. A good atmosphere too.

It's not really a proper old boozer any more (no bar stools!) but I guess it's what people want these days....

Chris - 31 Aug 2004 21:18
Another pub falls prey to the Ikea brigade.

As it goes, this place is OK, despite the dodgy refit.
TheGP - 10 Aug 2004 12:50
Both occassions Ive been there in the last twelve months they have isulted me by trying to pass me off with beer not fit for a dog. Maybe I look stupid but nobody wants beer that will make them sick.
The Pub Ghost - 8 Aug 2004 17:34
If you haven't been since they refurbished the place then make the effort because its much better. Good Food, Good Manager/staff and they'll put on the football even when its not Man-U, Arsenal or Chelsea, so good for the rest of us premiership also rans ..... totties not bad some nights either!
MarkE - 5 May 2004 14:54
The best place to watch the footie on a sunday afternoon. Sunday's atract fans from lots of teams and not many of them support Man-U. Which is allways nice.
Chris - 27 Feb 2004 16:20
Me and my immediate friends are in approval of the new look hogarth. reasonbaly priced for the area, friendly staff and good ale im told, as my pallete only goes as far as a stella!

Manager is really nice guy too and yes, he is keen to look at new suggesions.

Oh yeah, the patio garden aint half bad either in summer.
Bungle - 25 Feb 2004 15:26
Too bright - like drinking in an operating theatre.
Chris - 17 Dec 2003 00:22
As new management, we value comments critical or appreciative and would like to create a pub that is warm, friendly, safe and welcoming. If ever people that seem to have a negative view would like to visit again and have a chat with us about their disappointment and have positive ideas, we would be more than happy to meet them.
Arthur - The Manager - 26 Nov 2003 13:00
Just saw Shane Ritchie having lunch there- seemed to be a regular from the look of things.
Barbara M - 25 Nov 2003 13:46
This pub was a bit rough and full of pikeys but since it's refit has managed to attract a slightly better standard of clientel. other pubs in the area are much more worth a visit.
Dave Foster - 6 Nov 2003 08:40
Sorry...not the best pub...lacks direction, atmosphere, a trifle intimidating even.
richardaustin - 13 Oct 2003 15:24
Havent been in yet after this refit (and they get thru staff so quickly as well), but theres an old retired couple in there always off their trollies. Probably the worst beer garden in Teddington - its a yard!
Paul J - 18 Aug 2003 16:01
Recently reopened after yet another refit. Trying to be a bit trendier, but know doubt all the old oiks will return.
anonymous - 18 Aug 2003 15:07
No dogs allowed not even in the garden. Don't even try you will be told to leave.

Sue Brown - 17 Aug 2003 20:12
Shut at the moment & the pub signs down - not another wine bar / gastropub on the horizon?
PB - 8 Aug 2003 14:42
Under new management. The Hogarth has a warm, welcoming atmoshere. It has a nice well kept beer garden, perfect for those summer lunches and evening drinks. There is a wide selection of food. The Staff are always friendly and courteous.
rachel - 27 Jun 2003 12:38
Now under new management (June 2003) and there are excellent plans being made to refurbish it. Friendly staff and good location in the heart of Teddington near shops, station and buses. Plenty of seating plus a beer garden at the back.
Eleanor - 27 Jun 2003 08:51
Pretty skanky pub with poor beer and a bizarre concrete beer garden.
