  Inside the Hanwell Arms
by alancollins

This was my first visit to the Hanwell Arms, though Lin has been there a number of times. The pub and surrounding shops have only been open about 5 years and this was one of the last parts of the Hanwell Estate to be built. There is plenty of room between the tables which makes a change from most of these types of premises. Having made your choice of food you order it from the bar and it is brought to your table. We all chose starters and these were well presented. The mains we had were steaks and gammon. Lin and Emma had a dessert. It was well presented for simple bar food and we enjoyed it all. Being a pub we never felt under any pressure to leave and could have stayed there all afternoon. I was pleased with the food and will return to this pub again for another meal. There are various themed days for meals, low calorie choices and a traditional roast available on Sundays.
