Star & Garter

 

 


 
The Star & Garter was situated on Kew Bridge Road. This pub was closed in the early 1980s. It has now been demolished and replaced by offices.

I remember the Star and Garter very well, too young to drink there I passed it regularly as a child as my grandparents lived just down the road. My main memory is of the covered entrance, not dissimilar to one that is on the side of the current building, supported by columns, beneath which were two black painted cast iron lions on plinths either side of the door. I always climbed up and sat on them as we passed, would love to find a photo of them!

I can recall the Star and Garter as a child and under age teenager being parked outside or just inside the vestibule with a lemonade and a packet of Smith’s Crisps with the little blue salt packets while my dad and uncle were having a pint or two! When it was time to go home we would cross the road to Kew Bridge Station for the train home to Chiswick.
Later in 1968 at the bus stop outside the pub a young lady jumped off the platform of the No. 65 bus as it pulled to the bus stop and ran into me. It turned out she worked at the same company as I did on the Great West Road, we were married in 1970!
