For the virtuous amongst us January is now synonymous with non-drinking, dubbed ‘Dry January’ this movement has quickly gathered momentum as scores of individuals give up the sauce for 31 days. However, for every semi-teetotaller there are those still committed to drinking – nothing wrong with that; I’m not about to condemn those who choose to forfeit a green smoothie for a robust red, on the contrary – I have news of a revived micro –brewery situated in an historic Ealing pub.

The Ealing Park Tavern is over 200 years old and has managed to retain its traditional style juxtaposed with a stylish refit. Formerly known as the Lewis Furnell Brewhouse; brewing took place on the premises until the mid 1800’s so the revival of the microbrewery is a homage to the pub’s origins. The microbrewery which has been operating since mid –December, provides bitters, pale ales and seasonal editions direct to the bar. The Ealing Park Tavern also has their very own Brewmaster who is on hand to dispense his knowledge via tastings and tutorials.image

The Ealing Park Tavern also boosts an extensive range of menus; lunch, dinner, bar snacks and Sunday lunch – all featuring seasonal British and European produce sourced from specially selected UK farms and niche suppliers.

If you are not overly keen on ales, there is a choice of over 100 wines, bottled lagers, spirits and classic cocktails.image

To defy Dry January treat yourself to some hearty pub grub washed down with an alcoholic beverage of your choice at the Ealing Park Tavern.

A three course meal with wine is priced from £35 per head. For further information please visit:
