The Rose & Crown
Heston Road, Heston
020 8577 7217
The Rose and Crown is possibly Heston's second-oldest building, after St Leonard's Church.
The traditional pub began life as a watering hole for thirsty coach drivers and their passengers in the days of King Charles II, according to regulars.
Landlady Kate Culhane took over in August, after the death of her husband Willie, with whom she used to run the Woodlands Tavern in Isleworth.
"I've settled in quite quickly because both pubs have quite a villagey feel and are very friendly," said Kate, who ran a business in Ireland before taking over at the Woodlands.
"Customers tell us there's quite a welcoming atmosphere and we've got a lovely beer garden, in which we've planted a lot of flowers."
