Despite some indifferent reviews gave this local pub a try. Reasonably busy but still managed to order food at bar and food came out within about 10mins. Had a really nice chicken burger and thought the couple of onion rings was a nice addition to the meal. Great value and will be going back soon

We called in at around 7:15 on a Thursday evening, found a table, and decided on the food we would like to order. Stood at bar to order. And stood. And waited. And waited. And stood and waited. One bar person, completely out of depth, trying to cope with at least a dozen people wanting to order drinks / food.... More

We only found this pub because the fantastic Tom Fitzpatrick was performing there. All of the staff were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had a lovely meal then it was time to see Tom. As usual a wonderful performance that got people up and dancing. We hear he is returning in October - we shall be there although it... More

The Hanwell Arms is one of several pubs close to the home of my son who we take with his toddler daughter for lunch on an almost weekly basis, having seen the negative reviews handed out prior to the recent refurbishment we avoided it. We visited the pub on Tuesday of this week believing everyone deserves a second chance and... More

Surly bar staff. Ordered french fries with my Hunters Chicken. Waited 40 minutes for meal to arrive (after complaining), only to have meal arrive with chunky chips. Was advised bar staff should have told me that they were out of french fries. No apology, though. Chicken was dry. Very disappointed. Have been before and had reasonable meal then.

We visited the newly refurbished pub for a family meal at 6pm. Our food arrived at 730! Unfortunately it wasn't worth the wait.....cold and tasteless! There was a group of men sitting amongst families and their language was disgusting. The manager warned them but they found this funny. Not the kind of family pub I want to take my children... More

Newly refurbished pub with new menu.............same poor standards in food quality and service. Food was not what I ordered and cold. Staff unapologetic, blaming it on not knowing the new menu. Tried to charge me for puddings I didn't have. Overall the same as it was just with a disgusting new interior!! Shall not be visiting again anytime soon.
