Extremely Irish even for Kilburn. Heavy focus on Gaelic football and construction workers discussing their jobs. Doubt there was anyone of non-Irish decent other than myself in there. Interior is basic Oirish fare. Extremely heaving drinking is omnipresent. Needless to say no real ales.

The recession in Ireland & mass emmigration has kicked life back into the Irish boozers in Kilburn which once looked in danger of becoming extinct. The Crown in Cricklewood (mentioned in McAlpine's Fusiliers) had even stopped showing GAA macthes, but like the Kingdom, is once again packed on matchdays. The Kingdom crowd is a mix of new arrivals, second generation Irish & old timers who have been here several decades. The atmosphere can be initimidating on the surface, but is very good esp when there is a big game on. There are also quite a few amusing 'characters' running about the place to keep things interesting. The only negative is the music. They have live bands, but no proper trad sessions... you feel the place would erupt if they introduced the latter.

This is the best pub for the gaelic games, going to watch the kerry game on saturday there will be great banter. I love the atmosphere its like being at the game. The drink is good (even the guiness), and you can have a laugh rather than these new yuppie bars where they overcharge, you can't see in the place because of darkness or hear yourself speak as the music is up so loud. The old school is the best. Also if you don't like generic irish pubs why go into them? its just common go somewhere that suits you. Then you won't have something to complain about.

This is a generic Irish bar with the usual standard draught array and more than enough plasma screens that were showing two different rugby matches and horse racing during my fleeting visit. I didnít stay long as I didnít find it very welcoming, although the barmaid was pleasant enough.

The Guinness wasnít the best and next time Iím in the area Iíll purchase it from the Golden Egg up the road as it is better and a pound a pint cheaper.

Having recently visited the Kilburn area was in this bar a few times and found the staff and customers very friendly. This is a real drinking mans (and womans) bar - act like a normal person and you'll be fine; act like a muppet and you'll find yourself in bother. There is nothing wrong in hanging on to your heritage (in this case Irish) and this is clearly what the staff and patrons are trying to do. These traditional pubs are dying out, especially in London, so hang on to them - once they're gone, they're gone for good. For anyone visiting the area i would say this pub is a must-visit
