Whether you want to watch the game, have a pre-show drink or enjoy a cocktail, Hammersmith has the right drinking venue for you as the town centre has a veritable mix of pubs and bars.
If you’re after a good pint of ale or a nice glass of pinot, then wander down to Beadon Road.
With more than 15 international wines by the glass, The Dartmouth Castle is a haven for wine connoisseurs and with at least two real ales on tap, beer aficionados will have a smile on their face.
Similarly The Stonemasons, just a stone’s throw away, will tantalise the taste buds with more than 40 bottles of wine and five ales to choose from. Both have exceptional menus also worth sampling. If you’re after somewhere a bit more central then The Hop Poles, in King Street, is a popular destination for the after-work and pre-show crowd. With a friendly and a relaxed atmosphere, it’s the perfect pit-stop if you’re heading out for an evening in Hammersmith.
Why not unwind after a hard day in The Salutation’s beautiful beer garden. During the summer months, this King Street pub runs a BBQ in the garden and with its outdoor screens in the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon, soaking up the sun. In the mood for something a little livelier, then the Hammersmith Ram, also in King Street, might just be for you. A very welcoming pub whose ethos is ‘live, love and laugh’, there’s plenty going on here. Weekly pub quizzes, jam nights and traditional Irish music seisiuns set a sizzling tone for this drinkers’ favourite.
Want a pub with a fascinating past, then The Swan is perfect for you. Located opposite the HammersmithBroadway tube entrance, this Nicholson’s pub boasts a great selection of real ales and has a menu loaded with great pub grub. A favourite with artists throughout the years, its bar has propped up local Hammersmith luminaries including composer Gustav Holst and Hammersmith’s most famous son, artist and radical thinker William Morris.
However if you want to pay homage to the hugely influential poet, textile designer and novelist, you could pop next door to aptly titled, The William Morris at the top of King Street. This Wetherspoon’s pub pays homage to the man, but also boasts a low-cost and popular menu. With outdoor seating on Lyric Square, this is one of Hammersmith’s most popular haunts. The town’s other Wetherspoon’s pub, The Plough and Harrow, is located along King Street on the former site of a centuries old pub of the same name, first established in 1419.
In the mood for a cocktail, then pay a visit to Be At One in Shepherd’s Bush Road. Located opposite the Broadway, this is a conveniently located and bustling evening spot. Knowledgeable bartenders will help you choose the right drink, so if you want something strong and fruity, this is the place to visit. However if you just want to sit back and watch the game, then look no further than Hammersmith’s premier sport bar Belushi’s. Showing a huge range of international sports including football, rugby, cricket, tennis, boxing and many more, the pub is wonderfully equipped to satisfy your sporting needs.
