Yes, a mistake in the entry: what was McGovern's is now The King's Head, with Elvis's head as their sign. Grecian's review below is accurate; Guinness is 3.40.

I think this entry is mistakenly named - the Good Ship is just down the road. This bar used, I think, to be called McGovern's, and has now reopened as an American-style "dive bar and music joint", to which I popped in last night. That makes it sound awful, but in fact it was pretty good. The pub retains its fairly old school Irish interior, and attracts an eclectic crowd no doubt drawn by an astonishing jukebox packed full of old school rhythm and blues and rock and roll rarities. No real ale, sadly, but I can imagine that even the keenest CAMRA members might find this bar worth visiting if they like their 50s and 60s tunes. A strong addition to the Kilburn drinking scene.

Pleasantly furnished, but deeply dull, bar lacking any quality or interesting beers at all. Reasonable meeting place for the Luminaire but that's about it. The Guinness was as unremarkable as it is anywhere else.

They've taken the Thai food out. Why!?
