The Famous Three Kings, Kensington (Bar)
“Nice enough place on the inside and so easy to get to be right next door to the tube station - more of a Bar then a pub. However be very careful about ordering a soft drink there - they totally fill up the entire glass to the very top with ice first and then pour in the soft drink - by far the most watery cola I've had in London in years and quite expensive. So using the words "No Ice" before every order is very important here. Also their overhead signs says there are two for one deals available everyday and when we went there at 6pm on a Saturday - there was a single sheet of A4 paper just printed off with a very short list of food available saying sports day menu. The pub is known for showing sports all day, everyday so this could be a permanent menu for all we know. The burger and chips tasted good and was served in quite a nice space saving plate. However the quickly done up menu didn't explain it contains bacon, etc in it either which Jewish or Muslim customers especially might appreciate to know in advance before placing their orders.. Also the wait to be served is very long. When we went there it wasn't all that busy - just 6pm on a Saturday with no major games happening but the staff that were there took forever to serve you and when they did you had to repeat your order several times as they were not native speakers of English, so you struggled a bit to get your order in.”

“I went to the Redback last night .. They had an OK band but the music was way too loud, my ears are still ringing. What concerns me most is the bouncers. Just before I went in there was a group of about 7 girls and one guy and it looked like they'd made a special trip there but the bouncers didn't seem to like the look of the guy even though he seemed like a normal chap. So the bouncers turned away the entire group and didn't give a reason. I saw more of the same going on inside, bouncers targeting people having fun (who were no really bothering anyone) and throwing them out. It would seem the Redback bouncers do everything they can to prevent trouble even if that means they pick on innocent people in the process. And I can't say this is a very good place to meet women, perhaps inthe afternoon but certainly not later at night when it becomes full of people.”
