My head is feeling slightly the worse for wear today. Celebrated a landmark birthday by introducing junior to a number of fine west London pubs. We started in Richmond taking in the Orange Tree (Youngs) which we were loathe to leave due to it's fine air conditioning , then sat outside the Sun (Fullers), before heading down to the White Cross by the river (Youngs). After relining our stomachs we reloccated to the riverside pubs at Strand on the.. Green for the evening session. Situated just east of Kew Bridge they are ideally situated for visiting Brentford's new stadium.
Here it was the Bell (Fullers), and the City Barge (Green King-) although failed to make it to Bull before closing !
All these pubs are long time favourites and come heartily recommended. The only niggle was that both the Youngs pubs had run out of my favourites among their own beers
I couldn't really complain however as both had Proper Job amongst their offerings !
