Great pub and friendly staff. No food on offer, but then again this is a PUB and not pretending to be anything else. We go there regularly, and the staff know us all by first name and make us feel genuinely welcome.

A great pub, well-run, good prices, open late. The only reason I don't go all the time is the complete absence of real ales. Often the way with Irish pubs.

The more and more you see real decent non-exclusive Bush pubs disappear - (e.g. The Brackenbury as run by Michael and Margaret on Goldhawk Rd,The Princess Victoria ;beautiful Celtic memoribilia ripped out, gastro-elitist-poncidised for that totally inauthentic Pall Mall Club feel..-God,I'd like to burn it down..,The Eagle has been wine-barred with non professional class price exclusion policy,pints start at #3.30..) the more you appreciate unreconstructed ,for the people of-all-sorts gems like the Orchard. A family of long-term Publicans,has Jim PaddyHoops at the top...sorry forgot also amiable but not over unctuous missuses name..(Mary?) but real star of show is their sparkling friendly daughter 36 year-old blonde curly-haired Karen.The pub has a cracking jukebox,loud recorded retro (70's,80's,90's) hits at weekends,an immaculate pool table and most of all a COMMUNITY feel, (AND CLEAN BOGS!). The pub is BUSY and always will be,well equipped as it is to survive these impending dread economic times.
Most importantly of all,I want to get across this pub is not parochial,intolerant or class-bound.Whether posh or poor you'll not have an eye blinked.

Good traditional pub. Has a lot of regulars, but certainly not unfriendly. Has quite a good jukebox, not stuffed full of the regular pop/RnB you find in most places. Also has a darts board, pool table and shows the football, but without the charged up chav element you get in other places.

Not at all rough. An Irish local and the people are friendly. The only paper I could find to read was an Irish one but one of the regulars, realising I wasn't Irish, came over with an English paper for me instead. Now that is the kind of small kindness you do not get every day.

Just so you know its a landlady not landlord. Karen being her name. Not one bit rough. Infact the customers are great and i'm not one of them but do visit when in the area. Nice family run pub but sort out the jukebox

Fantastic pub. Great landlord who will put what you want on tv (which as a rugby league fan is particularly useful in London). Good, cheap Guiness, friendly locals. A proper pub; doesn't do food and doesn't need to. The best place in Shepherd's Bush to have a pint with your mates, and watch sport.

Great pub. Cheap beer and you're left alone to enjoy it. Might be best to avoid when there's live music, it can get very loud and crowded. It's a mostly older, Irish crowd - maybe that's what the previous reviewer considers rough?
