Just reopened. The refurb has not done it too much of a disservice - subdued decor, three ales on and another one coming shortly, the atmosphere of a street-corner local. That would be all well and good if you didn't know it was once a classic music pub attracting audiences from far afield. The back room which used to be the main space for bands to play in is now a 'restaurant' (the side area looks like it's going to be the kitchen eventually) and at the end a huge picture of Jimi Hendrix gazes forlornly down as if in memory of what this used to be. I do not know what has happened to the Ram Jam Club that used to be out the back past that big back room. KIngston needs pubs - heaven knows there are fewer of them than there ought to be and fewer than there were just a few years ago (literally half the pubs around the Fairfield area have been lost since the early 2000s). And so I hope this thrives. But it isn't what it was.

I heard The Grey Horse was closing down, not sure how true this is. I have great affection for this pub as it became my local when I moved to the area in 1993. Had some great times and great music. Newt was the barman back then, he was a music encyclopedia. Sadly the Kingston pub and music scene is gone into the history books.Empty pubs charging over 4 quid a pint. I don't get it.

Decent very unpretentious old fashioned just how I like them. Went there last Thurs to see my mates band and catch up with some people that I hadnt seen in a few months of Sundays! ! !

I would recommend this place. The only thing was I must admit the Youngs Special was not on particularly good form. I think that this is not so much a criticism of the pub except the beer was bit warm but more due to the fact that I really am not a big fan of Youngs Beer (except special london ale). Give me Fullers anyday of the week! ! !

First time there, with friends who live local. Don't go to music pubs now, as although I like the music, it is usually played way too loudly for my ageing ears. Would go in again though, when there was no band on, as I felt there was a good atmosphere in the place.

A friendly pub with music going on ALL evening EVERY evening. some great band nights and acoustic jams.

The front bar is relaxing and has a good old fashioned feel to it.

One wonders why it wasn't busier. Mind you I was in there when it opened at 11.30
