Not to be confused with the Packhorse & Talbot down the road, this traditional Fuller’s pub dates back to the days of the Chiswick Empire, which explains both the ‘Empire Bar’ legend carved into the back bar and the posters and memorabilia in the back room.
The interior is indeed a beauty, the three rooms kept in good shape by attentive staff. It’s a fine, relaxing place to enjoy a football match; each of the many televisions seems to be surrounded by comfortable furniture.
Groups can opt for any one of four big spreads from the Thai menu, but if you’re just after a bite at half-time, a couple of the starters should do. There are no surprises among the standard wines and Fuller’s ales, but sometimes no surprises is a good thing.

Fantastic local and the Thai food is excellent and good value! Good selection of guest ales and full selection of Fullers drafts. Love bringing friends and family here.
Yesterday afternoon when I was dining at the Thai restaurant a mouse ran out from under the seating to the second table away from where I was seated, the thing that distressed me most was the fact that the staff did not seem neither surprised or too fussed that the mouse was there!!!! Up until then, I was actually enjoying the meal!!
