Pretty much unchanged for a decade (unlike the surrounding area which has been transformed into a mini-Manhattan skyline-wise). Not much more to say about it - had a pint of Toast Marmalade which was a struggle to drink, like trying to drink a pint of Marmalade so suppose I got what I asked for.

Clueless Spanish barman charged me £5.45 for a Butcombe 3.8% ale. I told him it was wrong, he said no so I said at that price no thanks, how much is the Pride, £3.75. He then had a go saying what's he now going to do with the pint he poured. I asked if there was a supervisor about , he refused to find one. Eventually another member of staff showed him he was wrong. He gave me back my original pint short measured for the £3.75 - with a very sour apology. The bloke has no customer service skills and was adamant he was right when he was wrong... even told me it was that expensive because it was imported. Someone ordering a round could well be out of pocket by a tenner or two. You have been warned.

Some fair comments here I think.

Snarling Mallard's sums up my own observations best I'd say.

As some have said, you feel fairly safe, but at the same time you mind your own business.

Just thought I'd update this pub. It's been redecorated recently and done out in a rather unconventional (very) dark brown. Funnily enough that doesn't make it gloomy. It's actually quite cosy, with lots of slightly silly lampshades. They've chenged the furniture as well with some odd little chairs and sofas

The Pride's still there but now it's often joined by a guest beer. It was Butcombe bitter the other day and it was just fine.

The food is more or less what you expect from a pub, but none the worse for that. It's not too expensive, with most main courses at just over a tenner. The exception is the steak, which on Friday night was definitely worth the extra.

It still gets very full early on Friday night, but the crowd tends to drift away by about 8 and you can get a seat.

I think it's an improvement

Fullers as noted below, as per usual, all the offerings are more than drinkable but a bit pricy, particularly for this area which is basically an industrial park surrounded by motorways.

Large interconnecting rooms with adequate seating, loos accommodation seemed a bit small for the size of the pub, large ceilinged smoking area with seats and tables.

If travelling via North Acton Underground (Central Line) ensure you take the left hand route out of the Tube Station whereupon you will see the pub near opposite; taking the right hand exit leads to an alternative universe where street signs seem to have been removed, possibly in fear of alien invasion, the road layout appears to bear no relation to the arrangement in the A-Z of a few years back, and the only passerby you can find to ask for directions is a distracted looking Australian who seems nearly as uncertain of his exact location as you may be yourself.
