user reviews of the Regent, Kensal Green

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I paid a visit to this pub for a Sunday lunch. I'll quote the price I paid: 17.25

13.95 for Topside of Beef
3.30 for a pint of London Pride

A bit on the high side of life for a pub meal! About three to four thin slices of beef. largish Yorkshire pud. Three small sized roast potatoes, minimal amounts of savoy cabbage and broccoli, and a portion of roasted parsnips, smothered in jus.

I had to order this from the counter, as per a regular pub, and pay up front, so I wonder where all the surplus profit goes. I do object to paying what I consider to be restaurant prices in circumstances where the service is minimal, when orders are taken at the bar.

This was one of those Grunge pubs. Ca 1950s cheap tables with their varnish sanded off. Old chairs. Dark inside. Sunny patio. Leather sofas. Some people find that fashionable: I don't.

Men's loos: urinals about 100 years old. Full size sort. Not modernised at all. Very wobbly tap. Category D

All in all: grossly over-priced. But then I suppose this erstwhile Brazilian immigrant area is rapidly becoming an up and coming territory for yuppy families, who were its principal clientele.

A nice interior and promises to be one of the better options in the area, but when I visited the only hand-pump they had was off and hence no ales. Not even any bottled ales in the fridge! Very poor form for a pub to run out of (proper) beer.

Yeah I thought this used to be Astons. Does anyone know if The Angel is still there? I can't find it.

The bar staff in here are some of the nicest you'll find in London! On Saturday nights it can get a bit too crowded with Notting Hill folk "slumming" it. BUT it is so much better than the Paradise around the corner.

Pop in on a Friday or a Sunday and the mood is upbeat but not too crowded. Nice little sun trap garden outback.

Quite a few lagers on tap, and a few ales as well.

They also have decent food if you're looking to eat, but since you're on beerintheevening, the important thing is, a great place to drink! And good music as well.

9 out of 10!

This is a great pub. A worthy competitor to WIV, Paradise etc.

Good food and beer and relaxed outdoor space for the summer.

Did'nt it used to be Astons which is also listed separately?
