Football at Wembley so I took the opportunity of ticking this GBG entry in an otherwise desert for real ale.

Right outside the station is this huge & imposing 1930's brick built pub, its similar externally and internally as the Eastbrook in Dagenham that I visited a while back.

As I entered into one of the bars I felt like I had stepped back 30 years , its well kept with a full checked carpet, clean wooden tables, chairs and red velvet banquette seating around the edges. There's a tiled art deco fireplace with an art deco Courage mirror above it, doesn't look like its been used for many years but is well preserved.

The walls are fully wood panelled and the wooden bar tops sport the pubs name which is back lit.

Only I ale available which was Courage Best, the pints I had were all good.

A pool table on one side and several TV’s dotted about give the pub a sport’s theme.

Well run and well managed, my afternoon visit was very good and it’s on the list of pubs to use while visiting Wembley.

Large pub adjacent to South Kenton tube station in a predominantly residential area. The pub is a little dark inside and all the customers were men, who were either crowded around the bar or around 3 or 4 tables. Whilst the one bar area was full, a larger adjoining room was unoccupied. A couple of TVs were on. 3 ales were on - Courage Best, Banks's Mild & Hook Norton Old Hooky. The latter was quite nice and was £3.30 a pint. Service was good.

Having goner passed on the train for several years I was intrigued to visit this pub. On arrival the exterior looked uninviting, perhaps even closed.
But once inside I was pleasantly surprised to find a warm and friendly venue with a handful of jovial locals.

There were 3 ales available, those being Tim Taylor, Courage, and Youngs Special. I had a pint of each and all were of good quality.
The pub is large with a pool table and several TVs, two of which were showing GAA games on the RTE network.
There was no sign of any food available which was a shame.

I can see this from the train as I enter london from Birmingham. A walk in the area had me arriving at South Kenton Tube a quick look on the other side of the tunnel revealed this huge pub. Once I worked out how to open the door, I entered a large saloon type area where an ethusastic drunk irish builder regailing the locals. Toilets smelt.

London needs more pubs like this. Forget all your fancy gastro-food. This is a friendly, community pub where I was made to feel welcome as soon as I stepped through the door. Wide cross-section of visitors, from people talking politics at the bar, to builders playing pool to families in the beer garden. Two ales on - Youngs' Special and Courage. Had a pint of the latter at 2.90 and would've been tempted to stay for another if I hadn't had a train to catch. Definitely worth a return trip.
