Sadly gone dark during this year. No signs of refurbishment. I wonder if this is the end of the Ken Arms?

An update from 'in situ' at the ken arms, via the miracle of wifi phn.
Still the screens and all bar one ish interior, aleviated by Sharps beer. Certainly serving the young n funky clientele hereabouts. Could do without music videos however.
Well run and has it's moments for the older drinker.

Still in and out of the 'Ken Arms', and mostly for the Doom Bar and other Sharps beer. Certainly not a trad pub anymore, but a well run, mostly antipoedean staffed modern bar with a local feel. Back of the place mostly for eating - and the many customers doing so and quaffing vino show it must be good. Great for sport at the front of the bar with US style set-up of screens, usually turned to quiet. Miss the old pub, but at least the place has kept open & flourishing.

Great fish and chips. Good beers on tap and a great place to hang out in Kensington. There on business 5-10 times a year and I always make it down there for a night or two, watch a good game and have a couple of pints.
