Gloucester Arms Review

The Gloucester Arms have friendly staff and a variety of punters ranging from your down to earth locals (they do exist round here) to the American students studying at the local colleges.

This pub serves good pints and food at reasonable prices, in stark contrast to nearby restaurants & bars, which are aimed at a completely different kind of clientele – those willing to part with a lot of cash.

The Gloucester Arms shows the main sporting events taking place.

“After strolling the streets of Kensington with four of my friends looking for a meal that didnt involve a loan or credit card downpayment before a gig at the Royal Albert Hall we stumbled upon the Gloucester Arms on Gloucester Rd. On first impressions the atmosphere looked good, it was busy and boasted "traditional pub food" so we thought we had lucked out. The food was on the most part under a tenner for a main so we got a round in and ordered the food, 3 burgers and scampi and chips. Firstly the beer and we tried 3 different types were all very unpleasant and tasted far from normal. The staff were unfriendly and the service was far from good. When the food finally arrived we were all served about 5 - 10 minutes apart and was served on small side plates which was the first bad sign...... "have i ordered from the kids menu"? NO apparantly not. Now at £10 the Big Ben burger (served with egg, onion rings and cheeese) was small, had no egg and came with id say 7 sloppy aged chips, this applied to all four meals. When I asked the barmaid about the lack of egg the answer was "you should of been told when you ordered" "I wasnt informed?" Her reply, "oh well"..... That was unexpected. I've never written a restaurant review in my life but this shoddy, grimy, uncomfortable venue is one to avoid, mark my words. So to summerise, even for a beer this pub is not an option unless you stick to bottles and like i say food wise your better off getting a Burger King, it will prove better prepared, taste better and cost half the price”

“I spent A LOT of time in this pub when I was studying abroad in Summer '04. Food was great and it was a nice spot between school and my dorm. The staff was pretty awesome in bar AND out. Pat had to close the space upstairs since the apartments were unfit to live in (and tiny as hell!). Definitely stop by this place if you get the chance!”
