A disappointment to find out the rumours about this place appear to be true after a recent visit after a few years break. The pub is advertised as a family/sports pub and boasts about its real ales. Apparently other nearby pubs and ex locals refer to it as The Pink Palace. What I think is meant by this is that it now appears to be a Drag/Cabaret bar. Obviously that's not everyone's cup of tea and I did witness around half a dozen people leave on the Sunday evening I visited. Also the London Pride can at best be described as average, did not enjoy my pint or experience so shall not be rushing back.

I wrote my previous entry in anger and would like to add the following:

It is a shame that this has let down the pub as it is generally a good pub, and the manager works hard to keep everyone happy and make it a (usually) pleasant place to be. I've given the pub a ten rating here to negate the unfair zero in my previous review, as I have had pleasant experiences here before now. The two ratings average out at 5.

Went today, as usual, to watch the qualifying session for the Grand Prix. The only other people watching this were an elderly gentleman and his middle-aged son. Throughout much of the surprisingly exciting first qualifying session they read the Torygraph, the elder occasionally calling abusively to the TV. After the first qualifying session, the manageress called past me to ask the old guy what time he would like her to switch over to the tennis. Two o'clock came the reply, though the first ten minutes of the tennis would be just them knocking the ball about. I pointed out that I would like to leave the coverage of the qualifying on, especially for ten minutes if they were just knocking the ball about. The manageress just sniggered at me. After Lewis Hamilton screwed up his final lap I was eager to hear the ensuing interview. The manageress asked Victor Meldrew's uncle if it was OK to turn over to the tennis "Please do" he begged selfishly, in disgust at Hamilton's cock-up. "Please don't" I begged "I want to hear what Hamilton has to say for himself" (he was actually interviewed just six minutes later, for one minute). Clearly as the manageress wasn't asking me she didn't care what I wanted, and the old man's timid son didn't seem to know what he thought. As I left in disgust I called in to the nearby New Inn, a much bigger pub with more TV screens (and wheat beer which the Castle lacks), who confirmed that they will be showing the British Grand Prix the next day, and I will not be going in the Castle for a very long time.

The ale quality seems to have taken a bit of a dive here.

Pretty safe, civil sort of place I thought.

Nice pints of Chiswick for a session: pleasantly ordinary pub.
