"A friendly pub with 14 attractive bedrooms and great guest reviews"
Brook Green Hotel occupies a fine corner property that was built as a pub and an inn in the late-19th century. The building has four floors and features ornate plaster decoration on the exteriors. The pub is owned by the Young & Company Brewery, a privately owned London firm with origins dating back to the 16th century. It’s set in West London on busy Shepherd’s Bush Road, a five-minute walk from the shops, restaurants and transport connections of Hammersmith Broadway, about 20 minutes by London Underground from the city centre.
"Hammersmith is only 15 minutes tube ride to Piccadilly Circus with no changes"
The pub takes its name from the small park it sits across the road from, Brook Green. This welcome green space includes tennis courts, a children’s play area and benches where you can sit and watch the world go by.
"There has been a coaching inn here since 1886 and to this day, a stream runs underneath the building"
You can walk from the Brook Green to Hammersmith Bridge, which crosses the River Thames, in about 15 minutes. This part of the river has walkways on both north and south banks, with a choice of riverside pubs on the north side. Take your own picnic with you. A large branch of the Tesco supermarket, including an extensive deli section is just behind the Brook Green – you’ll find everything you’ll need there.
"Westfield Shopping Centre and Olympia are both less than 1 mile away"
Take the Underground from Hammersmith to High Street Kensington if you want to buy some high fashion.

"The bar serves award winning draught and bottled beers and a great range of wines and spirits"
The bar is in a room flooded by natural light which retains many original Victorian features such as marble fireplaces and a polished wooden bar with handsome carving. There’s also a leafy terrace tucked away at the back of the building, a welcome haven from the busy city when the weather is fine. The bar serves the traditionally brewed ales produced by Young’s Brewery including Young’s Bitter, Bombardier, and Young’s Special which should be treated with respect by inexperienced beer drinkers.
"The restaurant is open daily including Sundays for the traditional roast treat"
The Brook Green takes great pride in its food. Their beef is sourced from the Quantock Hills in Devon and all of their pork and poultry is free range. The menu includes dishes like grilled asparagus with Parma ham, pan fried chicken livers with caramelised onions and cream, and traditional English classics like bangers and mash and fish and chips. You can also order a range of gourmet sandwiches from the bar. The menu is accompanied by an extensive wine list, including a choice of Champagnes and Proseccos.
