About the Pub

Following the acquisition by BrewDog of the small Draft House chain of London pubs, this one has been renamed the Duke of Hammersmith: external signage still includes the original name, the Laurie Arms, and the "Beer Here" sign put up by the previous owners.

The interior, complete with original ten-foot stained-glass windows, is a celebration, using original gig posters and photos, of the Hammersmith Palais which used to flank the pub on three sides until it was demolished in 2013. The various spaces are defined by exposed brick walls and Victorian pitch pine cladding and the furnishings include ochre-yellow upholstered steel-framed benches with fluted backs lining those walls and a variety of hard chairs. All in all a charmingly quirky environment.

The wide range of keg craft beer (up to 20 taps), cocktails and up-market pub-grub offerings, including vegan dishes, are as expected for BrewDog. But, as this is a BrewDog pub, rather than one of its bars, so there is a real ale as well. Just the one at the time of our survey but a total of three handpumps on the bar counter perhaps hints at the prospect of a wider choice of real ales in the future.

There is a tiny smoking area on the left at the back of the pub plus a bigger separate non-smoking patio area to the right. Pavement seats at the front extend to the south.
