This place is always heaving and has lovely food. The menu is fab and when I ate here I wished it could go on. A gastro pub right next to my office and I get to go here all the time.
The bar staff can be a it scattered but they are lovely and the food, while not superfast, it perfectly cooked. It was so yummy. When you go here I think it was at table service so they will come to the table and take your order but don’t be shy about popping up to the bar and ordering there.
There are a number of tables so just sit wherever you want but if you’re a big party ring ahead and reserve the table.
If your looking for that simple, easy pub than look no further. A few good real ales on that are always changing. A decent selection of lagers. Some different things like Hoegarden. While also having things like Grolsch and Leffe in bottles. The wine list is drool worthy. I have been told that the owners hand pick the wine list, and try to do their best in training the bar staff in the wine selection. So don’t just walk up to the bar and ask for a 'pinot’ or 'merlot’. There is much more. But don’t just get stuck on the booze. The food is well priced and is quite decent portions. Changing seasonably, I like to experiment, but you can’t go wrong with their staples: penne with sausages, sausages, or any of their three sandwiches. Yum, steak sandwich.
I gave it 2£ signs becuase it may look a bit pricey, but for the atmosphere, food portions, and decent drink pricing it competes really well with its neighbors. And is definitely a gastro-pub and just simply a restuarant with a bar.
The Dartmouth is my all-time favourite pub in Hammersmith, being located dangerously close to The Day Job. The staff are top of my list of praiseworthy elements; they are a cohesive, courteous, friendly bunch who know a thing or two about what they’re serving, and one of whom has taken up the brewing of beer as a hobby, so you might say they know their brews. I’m not a real ale fan, so can’t comment on their real ale selections, but I do know my wine, and if you want to try a great-value chardonnay with a full and fruity body, give Red Fin a go. Only, once you fall for the Red Fin, you must return to the Dartmouth for further tasting opportunities because Red Fin sadly ain’t available retail.
There’s also an outside area in the Dartmouth’s favour, and their food is fabulous - seasonal gastro pubby without any pretention whatsoever. The only downside is that it gets very, very crowded on fine, summer evenings and Fridays because those in the area have clocked onto the fact that this really is the best pub in Hammersmith.
Was a regular haunt of me and my colleagues when working in Hammersmith. Has a great little outside bit for those sunny evenings. Food is tasty but for some strange reason they don’t serve mayo!
The dartmouth is your classic refurb of an old dive. Back in the day, our office was a little worried about going there, but now we head down there every Friday. They always have two real ales, good selection of everything else, impressive wine list and very, very good food. Ok, a little pricey, but well worth it. The chorizo soup is particular good, as are the platters to share.
Top tip is to checkout the upstairs seating, because although the bar isn’t normally open, it is a bit quieter, even on Fridays.
Second top tip is the little known, and little noticed, boardgames on the window ledge. A full selection of your favourites.
One of the better pubs in Hammersmith.
