Are there any good pubs in East Acton?

As Londoners at Cozee, we cherish our weekly visits to the local pub. Why not embrace the same in your new living space? We’ve diligently tested and reviewed all the pubs in East Acton – well, not literally, but we wish we had! Here’s our list of the finest pubs in East Acton.

Pub name Name Address Description
George & Dragon 183 High Street Acton W3 9DJ At the heart of the historic Acton Town Centre, this welcoming venue has three bars of real character; an atmospheric front bar (now used for seating and live music) leads through to a heritage bar with exposed original features probably from the 17th Century, and a cavernous and stylish back room which serves as the bar and the current;y unused brewery. Beers are usually from Clouded Minds or 5 Points, and two ciders are usually also available (but may not be real). The bar features a list of landlords dating back to 1759. The back of the bar is dominated with an impressive array of vast copper and chrome brewing vessels, whilst the large square bar in the centre of the room is adorned by two art nouveau statues. The north wall is covered by a Rousseau style leafy mural.
Pint of Hops 73 Churchfield Road Acton W3 6AX New bottle shop in former off license premises. Has a large variety of bottled and can beer. Now six keg taps with variety of beers including from Europe. Can drink inside and outside but limited space.
Red Lion & Pineapple 281 High Street Acton W3 9BP A Wetherspoon pub at the top of Acton Hill, formerly owned by Fuller’s. Two pubs here were combined in 1906, hence the unique name. The larger room is home to the circular bar, surrounded by red and black tiles. The windows are large, with etched and stained tops, and the walls are decorated with historical photographs of Acton. The smaller room is mainly used by diners and families. The rear patio area was recently refurbished. Alcohol is served from 9am.
Rocket 11 Churchfield Road Acton W3 6BD Divided into two parts, the dining area has beige walls and seating plus a pinewood floor whilst the bar area is much darker with much redness and colourfully furnished. The upstairs function room is used by local groups for film clubs, a book club, life drawing classes as well as comedy nights and other live gigs. Brunch served 10-1. Real ale may return when the weather gets cooler.
Shepherds Bush Cricket Club 38 Bromyard Avenue Acton W3 7BP Established in 1882 the club is one of the oldest cricket clubs in London and a founder member of the Middlesex County Cricket League in 1972. The pump clips were turned round recently so the beer may only be keg when cricket is not being played.
Station House Station Buildings, Churchfield Road Acton W3 6BH Originally the station booking hall, the upstairs is known as the Red Room and houses the open kitchen and bar and is available between 7pm and 11pm (Noon-9pm on Sundays). It can also be hired for private functions and has a large vaulted roof and arched windows. The pub specialises in Southern Italian tapas & artisan pizzas, although a big burger range is also available. The kitchen is open late till 10.30pm (10pm on Sundays). The outside terrace can become busy, especially when the bar is playing amplified music. The building is locally listed.
West London Trades Union Club 33-35 High Street Acton W3 6ND This small and friendly Club – run as a co-operative – combines excellent real ale with a busy cultural and social life. Two real ales are served from a variety of small independent breweries – and particularly from the Portobello brewery range. The Acton Community Theatre is upstairs, and regular film shows are also held. The Club is usually closed on Saturdays, but opens on some for special events – see website for dates and details. The local CAMRA branch is an associate member – show a CAMRA membership card or a copy of the Good Beer Guide to gain access. The Club celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2023, and the building has been part of the co-operative movement for over a century.
