It's nice to see that one of Ealing’s most historic pubs is being kept properly preserved but what a shame that it like so many other historic landmarks in the borough does not commemorate its history more.
The Drayton's a great pub and we've been to the comedy nights there fairly recently - Phil Z MC and organiser generally gets a good attendance with a strong bunch of performers each month.
Ho Chi Minh who led South Vietnam in the war against the USA in the 1960s was said to have been employed as a Kitchen porter there 100 years ago.”
I reckon that there's an opportunity for Ealing to make more of it's past with a focus on Tourism and things to see- a Tourist Information bureau in on of the many shops might help and volunteer guides for walks etcetera.
|A nice pub to have as a 'local'.|
Old Bown ShoeAs well as a nice 'George' Beatles song it's for me a short personal saga.
I was really please to find my missing shoe on the plot next to mine - I guess the fox realised it wasn't that good to eat or play with and I'll try and keep it in a place where they can't reach it from now on.
