Magpie & Crown

128 High Street,

Like the Drayton Court Hotel, the Waterman's Arms and the Brewery Tap, this pub is neither a listed building nor one of London's Real Heritage Pubs. However, it is a very pleasing building in mock Tudor style. It may well have originated as a Royal Brentford Brewery tied house as it has many of the hallmarks of one of the Brewery's most renowned architects, T. H. Nowell Parr. Namely, Tudor arch windows; faux ceiling beams; and wooden panelling. Unfortunately, it has been opened out and stripped back in recent decades. Note, however, the plaster Tudor roses on the wall in the main room.

The Magpie & Crown featured on the Way Out West: Daytime Crawl of Ealing and Brentford in February 2012.
