Park
“Large park with tennis courts, kids playground and well planted open spaces. Nice place to take a rug, a picnic and simply enjoy the day.”

Bar
“A large and very typical English pub with good food. It has a massive garden at the rear which is great for children and they often have barbecues in the summer. If you want to sample English beer, always have the hand pulled ales. Remember, English beers are not fizzy and are served cool but not cold. My husband likes London Pride which is brewed locally by Fullers, but they have a selection of beers. India Pale Ale (IPA) is also a favourite. It was the answer to the problem of providing beer for the British Empire in the east. It was too hot to brew in India, so what was needed was a beer that could survive the gruelling six-month journey from Britain intact. In the 1780s, a London brewer called Hodgson answered the call by sending out a strong, heavily hopped beer called October ale that would normally be aged like wine before drinking. The beer not only survived the journey, but was found to have improved immeasurably. This was the prototype IPA; the beer gradually became paler and more refreshing to suit the Indian climate. It's now drunk all over the World. ”

They have an eat as much as you like buffet for £20 per head and are open Monday - Thursdays 5.30pm- 10.45pm. Saturday - Sunday 1.00pm- 10.45pm. Best to go weekdays around 5.30pm. Bus E6 takes you to the doorstep. Can also do free delivery within a 5 mile radius.”

Bar
“Another good pub with good food. Much smaller than "The Kent" and noisier. Probably not ideal for children. But again a Fullers pub with good beer and the eating area is away from the bar. If you like pub food you should give it a try.”

“This is our local shopping village, with restaurants, take aways, coffee bars, bakery and small shops including a supermarket (open 7am - 11pm). More friendly and atmospheric than Ealing town.”

Meal Takeaway
“Great English fish and chips. The fish is very very fresh straight from London docks. I recommend either cod (my favourite) or haddock. We always have "mushy peas" - a northern delicacy of puree marrowfat peas. See what you think. I love them. But beware - the portions are very generous. One large fish to share, one large chips to share and I think that's enough for two. Or if you have a healthy appetite, have medium fish and one large chips. You can always ask for more if you are still hungry. ”
