From riverside bars, pubs with their own breweries and lively watering holes just a short conversion kick from Twickenham, we’ve highlighted the best bars, pubs and clubs in Hounslow’s nightlife scene.
Nightlife in Hounslow
There’s no shortage of quality pubs in and around Hounslow, with many offering the prized trinity of great food, great beer and a beer garden for when the sun shines.
One of the closest pubs to our Heathrow Airport Bath Road hotel, The Queen’s Head is a 400-year old traditional English boozer right down to the fireplaces, wooden beams and sturdy oak doors. A short taxi drive away from Heathrow, the food is excellent (try their BBQs in the summer if you can), a cracking range of real ales and guest beers and a family-friendly garden with no pets allowed. Oh, and – nerd fact alert – it was the first pub in the UK to be granted a spirits license.
The nearest pub we’d recommend to our Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 hotel is the Green Man. A charming English public house, the kids will love the climbing frame in the garden, adults will love the drinks menu spanning real ales, wine, cocktails and G&Ts while the food is a mix of burgers, steaks and pub classics.
Moving towards Hounslow, The Moon Under Water on Staines Road ticks most boxes. A sprawling Wetherspoons pub, it comes with everything you’d expect including good prices, all the live sport, a bevvy of guest ales, a cheap but tasty food menu and an outdoor seating area.
Right next door is The Snug, a traditional pub that’s recently been refurbished. With a smart wooden finish throughout, real ales and guest beers and a food menu that covers most pub classics – think burgers, fish and chips and their own range of stews – it’s a quality pub that’s neither too loud or lively.
A little further into the heart of Hounslow is The Bulstrode Pub, an imposing three-storey Victorian pub that serves up Indian and traditional British classics on their food menu. With two car parks and two beer gardens, it’s one of the bigger pubs in the area and has a fine collection of ales, craft beer, wine, spirits and cocktails.
Over towards Kew Palace and Gardens is Fuller’s Brewery, a cosy and traditional English pub with low beamed ceilings, a cracking range of Fuller’s beers, a covered patio and regular live music. And, should you feel like working your way through their collection of ales, ciders and lagers, they’re open until 2am every Friday and Saturday night.
On the banks of the River Thames, the London Apprentice is well worth the 10-minute drive from our Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 hotel. A Grade II listed building which has been a pub since 1731, the London Apprentice is the perfect place to grab a sundowner on their terrace, order one of their sharing platters and enjoy the view over towards Kew Gardens.
