My first visit here last week even though I have walked past several times over the years.

On my way to Shepherds Bush for a gig so the wife and I stopped for a couple of pints.

Young's pub with 3 of their cask ales on the pumps which were Bitter, Winter Warmer and Special there was also Well’s Bombardier. Also 4 craft beers (mainly lagers) on the pumps along with a decent bottle selection.

Apparently the pub dates from 1850, there’s an impressive island bar with a tall bar back, stripped wooden floors, wooden tables and mismatched chairs. To the front is the outside area with benches and was mainly used by smokers on my visit (as I guess it always is)

Busy on my Thursday night visit with most of the punters seeming like locals. A decent pub, the food looked but one complaint from me is that the music was turned up just before 7pm and it was a far too loud however the bar staff didn’t seem to mind

Another tick for me from the 2014 GBG.

Pleasant and lively Youngs pub in the heart of Portobello Road with decent standard beers. Without trying to sound like Nigel Farage, I am slightly concerned by their staffing policy, having been served by two different people with little English, less knowledge of what drinks they were serving and, in one case, an apparent perplexity at the concept of British currency. To be fair, there was also a ginger English barman who looked right through me for 2-3 minutes (while I was waving my wallet) before serving someone else who'd just turned up. Decent but flawed place.

Reasonably nice Youngs house in the heart of things on the Portobello Road. Service was average. Whilst the one barmaid was busy, I waited nearly 5 minutes before another barmaid appeared and immediately served a person who had approached the bar at the same time she had appeared. A simple 'who's first' would have sufficed. Watched the landlord throw out the local tramp with some amusement. Beers on were Youngs Bitter, Gold, Special & Porter. The Porter was in good condition. Worth a try if you ever pay Portobello Road market a visit.

Despite a reasonably good selection of beers, this was was terrible. The foreign staff kept coming to our table, interrupting our conversation and asking if we'd like to order food. We had already ordered food, but they wouldn't leave us alone! What's more the staff looked unwashed. Their scruffy clothes, unshaven faces, and dirty looking appearance did not inspire confidence in their menu. The pub was busy, but they also kept bumping our chairs as they shuffled about the place- highly annoying! I will never go here again.

We were tourist and it was a Saturday and guess where we stopped? Yep, here. a fiver for a pint, ouch, the ale, just ok. Packed place, dirty dishes everywhere, us foreigners everywhere. One pint and way from this discord!
