Bridge HotelWestern Avenue
Opened originally in 1937 as one of two pubs built by the same developer, the other being the Greenford in Southall (now tragically a McDonalds). Unfortunately the names were transposed on the licence applications. The Bridge now stands next to a flyover on the A40 and was bought by Young’s in 1959. A 68 bedroom hotel was added in 1989. There are three bar areas: a comfortable lounge which is also the hotel lobby, a quieter back room and, between them, a curvy main bar. The Grill is the hotel restaurant and is open Monday to Saturday from noon until 3pm and then from 6pm to 10pm, Sundays noon to 9pm. Quiz night is on first Sunday of the month. The enclosed beer garden is at the front and contains two heated jumbrellas along with a variety of seating. TV points are positioned outside. The views and sounds of the A40 flyover are slightly augmented by music pumped from the bar. The garden has recently undergone a makeover with a new lawn and extended patio. A 2015 refurbishment has removed some of the wood panelling and small booths. Also opens for breakfast 7-11 Mon-Thur; 7-11.45 Fri, 8-11.45 Sat, 8-10.30 Sun.
