I visit the Hanwell Arms virtually every week these days in my capacity as a Support Worker. The staff are always very nice, which the vulnerable adults I work with really appreciate. As a result, they always choose to go back there, instead of trying...More

Ate here with my son and his girlfriend on a hot Sunday lunchtime. We all ordered various burgers and they were excellent. Service was quick, efficient and friendly, They even put ice cubes in my dog's water to keep her cool.

But isn't it nice to have a surprise. You can make a game out of it. "Guess what I get". It's very popular here.

Long wait for food, items missing off plates, staff looked as if they couldn't be bothered or didn't want to be there, only one bar maid had a smile when she served you, I know they were busy but it uses less muscles to smile...More

The major problem was lack of staff on a warm bank holiday Friday. Those that were there were courteous and helpful. Food was what you would expect in town pub and was clean and well presented.

Food was value for money and tasty. Service was terrible and ladies toilets disgusting. No brollies outside even though it was raining. Staff were absent most of the time. Had to wait for drinks at the bar even though very few customers.

Very sorry about that. The staff were out the back looking for brollies.
