Hammersmith pubs

Check out some of the great pubs in Hammersmith

There are some brilliant pubs in Hammersmith, whether you want to sit by the river or stay away from the water. Step back in time with Dove, or just avoid the bustle of London in the Old Ship. You might even catch the match of the day at Stonemasons Arms. Wherever you end up, though, time can easily slip away without your noticing.

Old Ship

  • Rated as: 4/5

It’s a long walk from Hammersmith Bridge along a lazy bend in the Thames, a world away from belching buses and snarled-up traffic, but you’ll be pleased you’ve made the trek.

Carpenter's Arms

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

But for the tables outside, you might think that this was a shop. But a pub it is, and a popular one at that: head here on a Friday evening, and you’ll probably find many ‘reserved’ signs.

Several pubs stand amid the rowing clubs, dog-walkers and strategically placed park benches on the Upper Mall embankment upriver from Hammersmith Bridge; this one is perhaps the best.

Stonemasons Arms

  • Rated as: 3/5

This light, airy, two-floor gastropub – and, on Sundays, neighbourhood film club – is a Fuller’s establishment par excellence.

Thatched House

  • Rated as: 3/5

This cosy corner pub was Young’s first ever, opened in 1832. Now, under revamped Young’s management and with a new chef and fresh look, it exudes culinary confidence and a homely, rustic feel.

  1. 113 Dalling Road, W6 0ET

Nicholson’s pubs, like Wetherspoon’s, are also a place to look for low prices on real ales. This one in Hammersmith is one of the best-looking.
