Nestled in charming Brackenbury Village, a unique west London neighbourhood the Andover Arms is a welcome home for much-loved locals and new friends alike. ‘The Andover’ is a thriving part of community life and we champion the kind of hospitality where a gentle nod to attentive staff leads to your drink of choice or a signature Sunday Lamb Roast. Whether a Roast, market fresh fish or a delicious salad we use great ingredients in carefully crafted home-made dishes representing the best of British and beyond. We have pride in serving great pints brewed a mile away by Fullers, the family-run London institution and staff will happily suggest from a wide range of wines for drinking or to accompany a meal. We’ve games, Jazz, blues and soul alongside occasional live music (usually renowned regulars) to help while away relaxed hours. A proper pub with proper food; a welcome return.

Amazing roast. Huge portions. The roast lamb was falling of the bone. Even better was the friendly welcome and outstanding service.Unusual in London these days. Would recommend if you love a good home style cooked roast.

Yummy food, great choice of wines and really friendly and attentive staff. The furniture was a little tired but think that’s part of the vibe. We went on a Saturday just before a show at the Apollo and thought it would be super busy but it wasn’t. Would recommend and go again if you’re after good food and friendly staff in a quiet surrounding.

Wholeheartedly recommend that you visit this lovely pub for a meal- certainly among the very vest of pub food I've tasted. What made the food particularly good wasn't a flashy menu, but a classic menu very well cooked. The service was great, with attentive staff who rounded off the experience nicely. Take a trip to the Andover Arms and I'm confident you'll not regret it.

Got a hearty welcome from the barman on arrival and was well looked after thereafter. Food was excellent and generous. A very laid back atmosphere. My father, who we had taken out for an early ‘Father’s Day’ dinner, was absolutely delighted.

Good food and beer in a traditional atmosphere. We had dinner two consecutive nights and tried several options from the menu. All of them where above the average or simply outstanding. As a foreigner I found that London Pride beer from Fuller's really tasty and optimally served. If we come by in the future we will surely repeat the experience.

We’re never disappointed at the Andover, a local gem! I had the baked salmon with potato rosti and samphire. It was a touch too oily but still utterly delicious so I haven’t removed any stars! Service is always delightful and the pub is always busy giving it a nice buzz - make sure you book in advance as it’s usually full, even on weekdays. So pleased I only live a minute away!

The Andover arms is an excellent local pub with a great food menu and and great selection of beers and wines. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I had made a mistake in the reservation and we were 2 more people than expected. The staff helped us and managed to secure a table for us though the place was fully booked.

We arrived on time, they showed us a table which is too small for two people even no room for chairs! Wanted to talk to manager, he or she didn’t showed up and waiter says sorry no table for you tonight? Rude!

Went for Sunday lunch. I try to visit when I am over from the States for a proper Sunday meal. Good food and service. I like to visit somewhere local rather than a chain which is more difficult these days. Our waitress was very good. Back next trip.

I've been to The Andover Arms before and thoroughly enjoyed it, however after my most recent experience I'm not sure I would go back. Whilst the food was still good, the service was poor.

Service was slow and we had to ask for some items multiple times before we received them. When the bill came we were charged for an item we hadn't ordered and one that hadn't arrived. When we asked for the items to be removed, they were, however the service charge remained unchanged.
