I visited here on two occasions whilst staying at the nearby Travelodge and I enjoyed a pint of Stout on each occasion. Very nice pub and good atmosphere. The Stount was excellent too.

This restaurant is a 10 minute walk from the Holiday Inn Express and well worth it. It is a centuries old building that has kept a lot of charm and character. Food and cider were both excellent.

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!

Description
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.
