Brentford Taylor

The Brentford Taylor was situated on Station Road. This pub is now divided into two residences. It was previously known as The Railway.
Sadly don't have any photographs anymore, but would love to see some if someone else has any.
I can remember bringing my children here way back now [they are now 36 and 34] to this pub, with my friends and their children.  They enjoyed playing on all the bikes and outside activities, with the gates always kept closed
because all parents were there with their little ones and you knew that your children would not wander off. They were safe playing away, whilst supping your favourite tipple, maybe a glass of wine, or pint of beer for the Dads.
They would make us laugh, cos they were so happy, and all the bikes and see-saws etc were all chained down, so they would not fall over on top of kiddies. Yes I have fond memories of those days, only wished I had photos.
Too many good pubs are closing, so its difficult sometimes to find the right one.  I have grand kiddies now and they like to go to the park and if only could find a pub like this, it would be so good.
Will print off this photo for my distant memories and show my children.

Lorna Perry 1970/1978 I worked here, starting as the cleaner in the mornings, which then graduated to working behind the bar every Friday afternoon when the Landlady and her husband went to the Licensed Victuallers lunch each week. Her name was Peggy and she wore bizarre earrings!
