Sorry. Brown tiled. My spell checker is colourblind

Not bad. Nice Victorian corner pub. Lovely green tiled exterior, and quirky inside with lots of old electrical devices and a Vespa scooter on show. Very comfortable with a laid back relaxing atmosphere. Only one hand pump offering Greyhound something. Our pint of Guinness and a bottle of Kopparberg came to £7.50. Reasonable. Guinness was good. Lovely sun trap out back. As mentioned before, the majority of the clientel seemed to be from the hostel above. But as these were mostly blonde, female and friendly, this was no hardship. Sound.

After being closed except for private functions for the past 12 months or so this pub seems to have returned to normal opening The trouble is that the bar seeems to be there mainly for patrons of the hostel that has opened upstairs. Shame really. It's well appointed and could make an excellent local boozer

Lived in the area for over a year and never knew there was a pub. Family run, nice little place with garden (in Shepherds Bush !!!) and only 5min from mine. I just found my local...

Nice Bar. Good atmosphere. Not tried the food yet, though.

I had a very nice time in the pub. As opposed to
normal pubs such as just one step further Princes Victoria or old and worse as The Sun has an amazing atmosphere here. decadent decor creates a great
atmosfere. Leather, comfy sofas, many little lamps and candles, and those antique gadgets.......... And that green garden ......... magical atmosphere !!!!!!!!!! Surely this is my favorite pub! I recommend this pub to all searching for something different and wanting to relax... worth finding it!!!!!!

Went recently on a saturday night, admittedly early, and there was only one other group in here. It's a really nice pub with good beer and I can only imagine that people don't know it is there, or just go straight to the Princess Victoria down the road. I would suggest going here instead though, because the beer was better and it is not so full of people who think it is a good idea to spend 4 on a loaf of artisan bread.

Would like to be able to comment but it was closed at lunchtime when I visited. Seems that it is an evening only place.

The landlord has tried so hard to make this a great place and has been unlucky that nearby pubs which have also gone upmarket, like the Princess Victoria and the Adelaide, have taken off, but this place, sadly, has not.

Real Ale good when it's on, great service, good choice of malts. Don't be put off by the road.

Yep, I like this place. Great range of Malt Whisky!

Go to the Greyhound ! Don't be put off by its location. I've lived up the road for four years and just hadn't got round to going in until recently and so glad I did. It's got a lovely homely relaxed feel and Kuba the landlord has doen a really good job of creating a laidback atmosphere. A perfect place to chill out - no tellies - just cheap drinks , nice chairs and nice people.

Just went along bychance earlier tonight. Hadn't been in there for months because it was such a dive before. However, its been completely revamped. Very nicely done. The old bar which dominated the centre of the pub has been scrapped and replaced by a smaller bar in the corner. The bright lights and Sky Sports have been replaced by more subtle lighting and no TV's (makes a refreshing change). There was a good selection of drinks, about 5 different beers IIRC as well as a proper ale on tap.

The beer garden had recently reopened and was quite pleasant; certainly a lot better than I remember the old incarnation which had no lighting.

The pub had apparently just started selling food. Can't vouch for it but the menu certainly seemed quite good.

Anyway, all in all, a much better pub following the revamp; will definitely be back

I would imagine that since the last review this pub has had a complete change of ownership, decoration and image. The new guy in charge (currently also the only member of staff) has made a real effort to move the place 'upmarket', unfortunately this does seemed to have scared away some of the previous locals and most evenings are very quiet... Don't let this put you off. The place is really comfortable, service is fabulous, and it has just started serving real ale which is a rarity in the local area. The kitchen and garden are still being renovated but I have very high hopes that my rating will increase over the next few months. Oh yes, plus the 100 yards I have to crawl home at the end of the evening may help as well.

So has the pub been sold off or do the same family run it (Doyles) ?

under new management,john the manager has re vamped the whole pub and garden,added new disco lights and regular dj's and karaoke

The bar staff are efficient and good fun (even a little crazy at times). It's a very regular crowd and Friday's Kareoke is hilarious. However, stocks no decent wine & no 'diet' drinks/mixers. Also, fixtures and fittings need replacing. Loads of atmosphere.

Odd little thing that unfortunately has no real ale but has proper atmosphere and feels cosy.
