The Hanwell Arms is one of several pubs close to the home of my son who we take with his toddler daughter for lunch on an almost weekly basis, having seen the negative reviews handed out prior to the recent refurbishment we avoided it.

Surly bar staff. Ordered french fries with my Hunters Chicken. Waited 40 minutes for meal to arrive (after complaining), only to have meal arrive with chunky chips. Was advised bar staff should have told me that they were out of french fries. No apology, though. Chicken was dry. Very disappointed. Have been before and had reasonable meal then.

Newly refurbished pub with new menu.............same poor standards in food quality and service. Food was not what I ordered and cold. Staff unapologetic, blaming it on not knowing the new menu. Tried to charge me for puddings I didn't have. Overall the same as it was just with a disgusting new interior!! Shall not be visiting again anytime soon.

Good cheap pub, great local location, but you wouldn't travel far to go here. Good for the local community and a quick and cheap bite to eat.

Me and my wife have eaten here a few times, it's hit and miss really. Iv had to return a meal before. Because of a uncooked fish. Granted this was a couple of years ago. It's ok food. But I do like the beer and atmosphere of the pub .

Thank christopher k
