Nice pub with a lovely atmosphere and reasonable price.
We went to “the headliners comedy club” based I. The pub. Was very impressed, good comedians and a fun night. Doors open at 830, with the show starting 9/915. Finished at around 1115, very funny!
And you can book online for £10, can’t go wrong!
Will definitely be visiting again.

Average gastro pub, decent sized garden and function room, its ok for a drink during the day but personally id avoid it at night. Once me and my group of friends were harassed by a bunch of ‘youths’ as one of our group was looking in their general direction, it turned out that the group of abusive and potentially violent youths were friends of one of the young female bar staff.
Food is terribly overpriced for what it is, Its most likely tipical 3663 frozen stuff warmed up in a microwave although I cant confirm this, but this is what ive been told.
Free wifi and a decent outdoor area make this an okay option for the high road.
The staff are super friendly. Prices are a bit much. Range is limited due to it being a Fuller's pub.
To be honest, I'd probably go here more often if there weren't better choices just a few hundred metres away.

Sorry, I don't remember where the Roebuck is. Can you give me a clue? By the way, I also like the Old Pack Horse at 434 Chiswick High Road - near big Sainsbury

That was my old local when I worked at Discovery Channel up the road. The Roebuck is in the other direction from the George IV... Near High Road House. It's got a great beer garden, their food has improved and it's not a Fuller's pub so the ale range is better. (Priced about the same, to be fair.)
My favourite "local" local is probably the Tabard because it's still a bit ghetto and has the best real ale selection in Chiswick. It's around the corner from Turnham Green tube stop.
Hartney, 21 June 2011:
Thanks for that. I like the Tabard too. I shall have to look out for the Roebuck. Perhaps I should let you know that I am a Fullers fanatic. Have been all over the estate which goes from the Isle of Wight to Birmingham!

Oh I like their stuff too. But I'm way too fickle. One of my many flaws. :) Guess that's why I don't have a 'proper' local.

As I have often been out and about London I never really had a local either. The nearest I came to having one was the Coach & Horses in Soho as it was a convenient meeting point - and a nice old fashioned boozer!
Good solid pub. Comedy nights are a bonus and very amusing. Live music some nights which is nice and tvs showing the football, which I always end up sitting near due to the other half.
Always busy but in a good way. Never a bad atmosphere. Staff are always attentive and work well when it is busy.

The pub of pubs. You just can't beat it. Always a good vibe, not too expensive, live music, comedy nights, tv's outside for the smoking sports fan. You can't go wrong if you head to the George.

The better Fuller’s pub on the high street in Chiswick. Serves all the usual Fuller’s favourites (I like Discovery).
It does get a bit busy on a Saturday night but the atmosphere is convivial. You do need to be 21 to get in and I guess they are quite strict about it as (flatteringly) I was asked. Of note were a couple of very striking redhead barmaids.
Many of the pubs in Chiswick have gone down the route of the gastro so its nice to walk into a pub like the George IV and still get a .. well a pub! We should have been adventurous (it was a slightly cool day) and gone for a table in the beer garden but we opted for a seat near the window instead.
Food is very reasonably priced at this pub and great portions and good taste. No microwave meals here methinks. Offerings include a wide variety of pies which are super-tasty. They don’t try to do anything fancy schmancy which is a welcome change.
It’s a fairly big pub with heaps of seating inside (and I imagine even bigger when you include the beer garden.)
My only complaint - getting charged £1.50 for a pint of tap water and squash. Could have walked across the road and picked up a whole bottle of squash for that price!
I like this place. It’s still a pub as another reviewer has already pointed out and this is why I like it. They serve food, but it’s pub food, like pies…..and not duck a-la-orange with a grapefruit sauce!!!!
I am of the belief that if you want to go out for something to eat and by this, I mean a posh nosh, then go to a bluddy restaurant. If you want to have a few pints, then you go to a pub and this place is great for meeting up for a pint!
I have never attended the Comedy, but I am told by others that it gets quite busy, so if you are going to check it out, get there early!
All in all, a cracking Fullers Pub!
Never spent much time in the pub here but go along for the comedy club through the back. They have some great nights on, my favourite being the Four Kiwis show, a monthly night with a different line up of stand up comedians each time. I’ve never been to New Zealand but judging from the NZ speciality snacks they have on offer at the Kiwi show I think I would like it there!
This unfortunately is one of only a few pubs that have survived the “Gastropub makeover” in Chiswick, by which I mean this is still a pubby pub!
The crowd is a mixture of young and old, posh and unposh, friends catching up and after works drinks.
They have a vast array of Fullers beers on tap as well as a large extensive wine list, full of variety!
The beer garden is spacious, although often closed early to avoid upsetting the locals.
The food is very reasonable here and very tasty, lovely burgers and pies, usual pub fair with a little bit more pzazz
Upstairs they often host “Headliners” a comedy club which amongst others has had Harry Hill and Al Murray guesting.
Even Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden can be spotted having a quiet pint every now and then.
One of my favourite pubs due to the mixed crowd you get in here,not posh but not a dump either,large beer garden for the smokers which has a really good buzz on a saturday night.
They open until 1am on a saturday night which is amazing in chiswick.Ive had lunch here plenty and its always been good,steak sandwich is huge and the puddings are a fair size too.
Just a easy pub to drink in.
My favourite pub on the Chiswick High Road, its received a spit & a polish over the last few years. Always a mixed clientele, its neither old-man's pub nor barcadi-breezer territory. Not trying to be ultra-fashionable, some of the original charm of the old pub is retained, and simply cleaned up & modernised. Food is reasonable too, with standard pub fare on offer.
Tied to the nearby Fuller's brewery, it was recently awarded Fuller's Griffin Trophy as their Pub of the Year. There's also a comedy club adjacent to the pub, "Headliners", which is open Fridays & Saturdays.
