About the Pub

Confirmed as reopening 17 May 2021 subject to Covid restrictions.

Originally the Great Angel, then the Angel from 1786, this pub was next renamed the Builders Arms (a name transferred from a closed pub on Hammersmith Bridge Road) following its acquisition by Young's from Fuller's in 1966. The present pub name dates from 1996.

A major refurbishment, carried out in summer 2016, broke the final ties with the polished dark wood panelled two-bar pub of yesteryear. The redundant bar counter in the front part of the pub was removed, some walls stripped back to plaster or brick, others and some of the panelling painted in fresh hues. A superb pine floor has been revealed, cleaned and resealed and that in the front part strikingly decorated. What resulted is a more modern, open and airy feel to the single long room, complemented by less heavy furnishings.

There are now six handpumps (though offering perhaps just four different real ales) and a new menu is on offer. The perennial favourites, the Tuesday Quiz Night and some music sessions, have been retained. So too has the small enclosed beer garden to the side, providing an outdoor haven away from the traffic.
