Old Swan, Notting Hill
Fairly ubiquitous in the middle of London, a T & J Bernard pub in Notting Hill feels oddly out of place. Still, being a chain you know where you are with these pubs and that's somewhere in between a Wetherspoon and a more traditional pub. A reliable supply of ever changing real ales is at hand, though when we looked in most of the clientele were working their way through pints of the fizzy stuff. It's not really the sort of watering hole you'd imagine in the area - especially given the ubiquity of the gastropub north of Notting Hill Gate - yet it still manages to fulfil a need.
