The Owl & the Pussycat, Ealing, London   3 comments



Happily sticking to micropubs (third in a row after the Hop & Vine and the Beer Asylum), I ventured down to Ealing to try out the Owl & the Pussycat which is housed in a former children’s bookshop and contains a microbrewery in the back to supply the thirsty customers.  Did I say, “supply?”  Surely I meant, “satisfy” as their product, which they are right to be proud of, is splendid.



This photo, below, of the bar doesn’t do justice to the sense of community here, either.  One guy — a proper beer geek — struck up a conversation with the guy running the joint and soon several of us were weighing in.  That’s how I found out the house had been a bookshop and the proprietors former teachers.  They went out of their way to find out the closing time of the local brew shop for me, as well (Drunken Bunny Liqueurs is now branching out to berry wines and mead).

Their feeling their way through this, but you really should give them a try.  I had a pint of the Coal Porter for the sake of the Stout/Porter Advent Calendar, but I’ll try several half pints next time.
