See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Known locally as 'Dracula's Castle' due to its neo-Gothic and towered brick construction, this multi-roomed pub dates back to 1894 and has now returned to being a hotel. Ho Chi Minh is believed to have worked as a chef here when he lived in West Ealing. There are two bars on the ground floor. A new bar has been built in the downstairs function room which seats around 110 for the regular music nights. Meals are served from a set menu with blackboard specials. Had a month long refurbishment in the spring of 2016 resulting in an extension to the rear car park, a summer bar in the garden and table tennis table. The interior sees the replacement of the back bar with modern tiling, and bare brick in the sports bar. Open for breakfast from 7am-10am (from 8am weekends).
