Located just 15 mintues walk from Twickenham stadium, The Ailsa is an extremely popular haunt for rugby fans, not only for pre-match beers and post-match celebrations but also for comprehensive live rugby action on the Sky Sports plasma screen.
Despite the rugby focus, the Ailsa has a reputation for being a relaxed and friendly pub that extends a warm welcome to families, children and dogs. The menu covers all tastes and appetites with tapas, specialist pizzas, grills, an ‘oriental’ menu and good old-fashioned pub grub such as sausage and mash and fish and chips. The Sunday roasts are generous and tasty and served until 6pm with excellent vegetarian options.
The pub hosts popular annual parties such as New Year and Halloween, has excellent live music evenings and a weekly quiz. Outside the newly refurbished beer garden has a covered patio with heaters. The Ailsa is also a WiFi hotspot.
