Waterman’s Arms, 1 Ferry Lane, Brentford. “The Waterman’s Arms has been established since at least the middle of the 18th century. Remnants of an earlier building of about 1790 can still be seen on the exterior flank wall. The pub was rebuilt in the early 20th century. The front is Edwardian and probably designed by Nowell Parr with Doulton glazed tiles and art nouveau glass in the windows on the ground floor.The pub sign shows the coat of arms of the Company of Watermen and Lightermen. Licensees of The Waterman’s Arms have included William Butler (1825-1853), Edward Fisher (1873), William Vassile (1881), Charles Webb (1895) and William Sholler (1901).” (Jim Storrar, 2017) It lies a stone’s throw from Parr’s Fire Station of the late 19th century.
The Pottery Arms, 25 Clayponds Lane, Brentford. “A beerhouse called The Pottery Arms in Brentford was offered for sale in 1865 and in 1873 “The Brewers’ Guardian” noted that the pub had an address in Bull Lane where the licensee was James Evans. The name of the pub referred to the pottery industry which was of great importance in this part of Brentford and the pub itself originally stood opposite a pottery. The Pottery Arms was rebuilt in 1921/1922 to a Nowell Parr design and it was closed by 2012 and converted to houses.Licensees of The Pottery Arms included James Evans (1867-1873), members of the Rye family (1890- 1915) and Daniel Coate (from 1915).” (Jim Storrar, 2017)
The Queen’s Head, 12 Sutton Lane North, Chiswick, London W4. Licensed by at least 1722, it was rebuilt in 1925.
The Duke of York, 107 Devonshire Road, Chiswick “The original pub was purchased by Fullers in 1834 but predated that. It was rebuilt in 1927. Inter-war side-street local community wood paneled pub with an attractive tiled exterior, designed by the architect Nowell Parr who built various distinguished pubs in West London. Two bar areas, the larger at the rear having a dartboard, pool table and board games while the front public bar has the food servery. A couple of hundred yards south from Chiswick High Road. Fuller’s have confirmed that they have sold the pub in June 2017. Current owners unknown but the current lease expected to expire mid 2019 when the pub will close. This pub had featured in the Good Beer Guide in the 1990s. Update: Having been vacant since 2018, the proposal is being made for two self-contained flats at the corner of Devonshire Road and Fraser Street. Planning application (00354/107/P1) was submitted in November 2022 to convert the building into housing. A report by Hounslow Council planners is recommending that approval be given.” (Whatpub.com)
