|This is a nice pub in the rather upmarket surroundings of Kensington Square. Popped in of an afternoon the other week and the place was bustling along nicely with a decent mix of customers - office workers, shoppers, folk simply having a pint, like me. Very comfortable area by the bar with comfy sofas and a larger, open plan type area to the rear. A range of beers if a little uninspiring, but the Doom Bar I had was in good nick.|

One of the Taylor Walker pubs (but still 'Nicholsons-lite'). Lovely curved windows, benches. Dull beer, Pride, Doom, etc. Bigscreen at back. Usual TW crap muzak.

|A nice pub located on the rity Kensington Square just behind Barkers the Greyhound is actually also surprising large. The narrower front area with the bar opens out in to a large rear room with a projector screen TV. Obviously footy watching is an important part of this pubs operation.|
The decor is traditional and pretty impressive red upholstered benches in alcoves to the left of the entrance and a nice set of chairs and tables in the rear room.
Beers on offer were pretty standard - Pride, Doom Bar and Bombardier.
I liked this pub and wouldn't mind returning in an evening. I did have to mark it down slightly though because it had bloody Christmas decorations up in early November - just bizarre.

|Having studied in the area for over 2 years i was pleasantly surprised after been forced into the Greyhound on a Thursday. A new night called Acoustic Thursday’s was a live music night showcasing an array of different musicians. I was shocked with the lively atmosphere and variety of music on show which completely changed my opinion of the place. Seriously guys its worth checking out if ya ever stuck on a Thursday. I think that guy who runs it is called Ash so guess if you need more information contact him. |

|A fairly by-numbers London pub - nice exterior and generally well-kept premises but nothing especially memorable otherwise. A perfectly acceptable pint of Young's Gold was sampled; not out of the ordinary. Service seemed reasonable. Probably didn't linger for long enough to justify commenting further, but on balance I'd chalk this up as one of those pubs that's fine if in the immediate area and in need of a quick drink, and equally useful as part of a Kensington-wide crawl. But for a planned and/or protracted visit, there are better places than the Greyhound to target. |
