Description: Hi all yet again The Hidden Gem receives 100% score on all recent Mystery Diner Score for early 2014. Now hitting the headlines and rated one of the top traditional drinking and dining outlets in London. This place is a 'must'. The fire is crackling away...Ales racked and ready...Wine uncorked and perfect temperature and the stock pot simmering away and of course Vicki and the team are itching to serve you and your best friends.This place is truly a nostalgic hideaway in Hammersmith's Brackenbury Village, and is truly 'London's Hidden Gem'. The Andover Arms W6 brings charming pub hospitality to a well-heeled West London. The menu alters daily to reflect the best fresh available produce, and a constantly evolving wine list is matched to the flavours of the season. Crackling open fire, sprawling Persian rugs and Edwardian portraits are dotted through the dining areas and throughout the pub, while a glossy mahogany bar is lined with The Andover's extensive stock of fine seasonal real ales, lagers and an array of other treats.Where else would you want to spend a chilly Autumn/winter evening ?. The Andover Arms owner Tom Gavaghan prides himself on Service and high standards always sur-passing the competition and your own expectations. Quirky in style and traditional in 1870's' nature. A real Gem. The show always goes on at The Andover Arms. Not to be missed. Its The 8th Wonder of the World. Traditional...Comforting...Homely...Safe...Nostalgic...Different...Quirky...Seasonal...Inviting...Tasteful...Friendly...Respectful...Honest...

“Perfect restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We went there as a group of 3 on monday evening, everybody was incredibly nice and welcoming.

We went there based on tripadvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The food was delicious, for a very decent price, service was a huge plus to the restaurant.

I'll definitely go back there next time I go to London!

“Wonderful local pub with very good meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We arrived by subway and did some walk there following the Tripadvisor reviews - and indeed it was worth it. Just turn left ( and not like we did through the main road) when exiting the subway station through narrow passage, then use google map or Tripadvisor offline city map, this is 5 minutes walk from Ravenscourt tube. We felt local atmosphere - no tourists around:-). This is typically London's pub , crowded with locals , warm welcome and perfect service combined with very good ( huge portion !) food. I would suggest to take couple very delicious starters and one main course for 2.
