You can tell us more about Kensington.

  • the kensington in russell gardens w14 and the crown and sceptre in w14 both under new management and pretty good
  • Southside bar, dingy underground but home
  • watch out for the rat & parrot in glouster road. we've seen many mice in there and there are traps down behind radiators etc if you can get away with it, imperial college union does 1.40 pints! woohoo! if you go in before 8 they normally don't ask for union cards
  • no pub here...this place wont allow them...oitherwise there will be too may common ppl here!!!
  • THE BUILDERS - tucked around the back (near Wodka's) is full of Australian's and Charlies/Samathas/Abagails from the Pru Leith cooekery school next door. THE GREYHOUND - do not go in. Terrible in everyway. Bad service, bad drinks, bad atmosphere. THE ELEPHANT behind the highstreet on the north side. nice but often very busy
  • Elephant&Castle is a small and rather calm pub, which is very nicely situated in Holland Street, with a cosy-looking outdoor area in summer. In Kensington Church Street there are some other nice, more crowded, ones.
