Ten of us enjoyed a good meal there, served by a very freindly Polish waitress (my colleague is Polish so he spent a good deal of time chatting her up!). Really nice place with a distinctive style and good beer. We'll go again!

Visited this Pub whilst staying overnight in Colnbrook. Didn't have to book and the food was lovely and well presented and the deserts and beers were good too.

This place has an amazing (and super creepy!) history, with a modern update that fits perfectly with ancient beams, fireplace, etc. The ambience is matched by the food. Everything is clearly cooked with care, right down to the steamed vegetables. Incredibly friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Over the years The Ostrich has gone from good to bad to good and on that cycle. Right now it is better than good, it's excellent. A lot has been put into it externally and internally both in terms of finance, thought and passion and...More

Believed to date back to the 12th century, The Ostrich on the old Bath to London road, close to Heathrow Airport and Terminal 5, is said to be England's third oldest inn. It's certainly a very fine example of its kind, combining everything you'd expect in a historic coaching inn: beams, nooks, fireplaces, crooked stairs, a cobbled courtyard and an interesting (albeit macabre) history. The chunky contemporary wooden furniture and bright colours come as a bit of a surprise, and work well with the huge, sagging beams, standing timbers and open fires. A wide-ranging menu serves good, freshly prepared food and reflects the demands of the area (the M4 and M25 are very near) and the concomitant mix of people. The specials board changes daily, while a lunch menu that is always ready within 20 minutes. A hearty Sunday lunch menu is served all dy long allowing you to indulge in a proper lie in and still have time for a roast.A private function room upstairs plays host to regular comedy nights and is available for hire for functions.
