The food was overpriced though acceptable. The beer was far too expensive @ £3.30 a pint of Fullers. Worse, the bar was filthy with old J Cloths lying about. Staff were bored almost to the point of being sullen. Not a great experience. Maybe the dirty bar and sullen 'schoolboys' were a one off but I'll only give it one more try. Shame, because I could walk to the pub from my house. But if they cannot bother, why should I?
The food is consistently good too, but i lament the passing of the steak and chips. Not sure why they stopped doing this but i wish they'd bring it back! It has a curry night on Wednesday and i URGE people to try this. There's usually four to choose from and they include Malaysian chicken curry, a lovely Sri Lankan lamb curry and there's always a vegetarian option.
In summer the beer garden is out of this world. If it wasn't on the flightpath of Northolt aerodrome it'd be absolutely perfect, but even the rare jet roaring in at about 200ft doesn't deter from this absolute gem of a pub.
30 West Street, Harrow, London, HA1 3EF
Harrow-on-the-Hill: Leave the station by the left hand (Lowlands Road) exit and continue ahead, then turn left along Lowlands Rd. Take the first right, Grove Hill, and continue ahead to the High Street. Turn right down the sharply downhill sloping West Street, and you'll soon see the pub on your left. South Harrow: Turn right up Northolt Road. After the roundabout turn half-right up Middle Road. Bear left along Crown Street. At the end of the road the pub is on your right.
