We’re a pub of all trades, from a weekday date night, to a wild night on the tiles at our Small Disco every weekend. Fancy a Sunday roast with a twist? Why not have your next big celebration in our private room? We specialise in making your experience the best it can be no matter the occasion.

With fresh locally sourced ingredients, and a bit of magic from our kitchen maestros, we have one very tasty new Spring menu. Our bar is packed full of craft beers, and cask ales and worldly wines, you could say a little something for everyone.

But we know our cocktails and that’s where the real magic happens.

Located in the heart of Shepherd’s Bush, and only a few minutes walk of White City, Shepherd’s Bush Station, Shepherd’s Bush Market, and Wood Lane Station. Neighbouring Westfield and the iconic Shepherd’s Bush Empire, we are a pub at the heart of the action.

Today's weather It’s chucking it down, seek shelter in the pub!

Great Atmosphere

Come here regularly for drinks and always enjoy the atmosphere and selection of drinks. Friendly staff and enough tables and chairs that we mostly always get a table! Recently tried the food for an evening snack and wasn’t disappointed! Will continue to visit and recommend visiting if in Shepherd’s Bush or at Westfield

Amazing Local!

We come here every Monday for the weekly pub quiz, which is such a fab quiz. We also come Friday nights and often on the weekends too. Good range of drinks and food. Plus the staff are friendly and great fun as well. Always good for a chat. Love this pub, will miss it a lot if we move away.
