 Terrible
Total lack of customer care does not listen to what is being ordered and Manager treats complaints with sheer and utter disdain as overheard whilst seated next to Old Couple who crossed swords with the Duty Manager

We've struggled to find a decent pub in the Victoria area but stumbled across The Greyhound when going to the Thai restaurant opposite. The Greyhound is really really friendly, nice mix of people, outdoor seating, decent selection of wines and reasonable prices. A good find in an area of overpriced places catering for tourists or groups of office workers on the lash .Recommended.

 The Greyhound
The Greyhound, Pimlico.

I was intrigued to find that this pub had re-opened as it was my local many years ago. I paid a visit on 10th August 2013. The pub has been refurbished very nicely and I was quite impressed by the conversion of the cellar area into a restaurant.
However, the real ales were truly appalling and the service was slow despite the pub being fairly quiet. The bar staff seemed to enjoy chatting rather than serving.
Overall I left disappointed, shame.

 Avoid.
Council estate pub, stuck in the 70's, ugly owners, managers and customers that look like they breed with their close relatives.

 Tasty!
Nice little location near Harrods, pretty busy within 10 mins of us arriving (about 11.30). I ordered the pie of the day and mash, my friends had fish & chips and the gammon. All of us were very happy with our meals! Nice staff too - well run pub

 Appalling service
A virtually empty pub..... I was surprised at 3.30 on a Friday afternoon, but soon found out why!
Could I have a pint of bitter please? was met with almost a snarl of We have no ale! OK, said I - I'll have a pint of 1664 then please.... You have to wait.. the gas is off!
As this was the start of the weekend, I was fairly relaxed, thought I would wait and decided to visit the Gents whilst I waited...No lights, wet floor ... you guess, urine or water? and no running water for the handbasin.

I came out ready to complain rather strongly about the situation, but stood then for 5 minutes listening to two people from a party in the corner ( 25 people or so) trying to convimce the same barperson I had dealt with that the buffet food that they had been served was both sadly lacking in quality and quantity and that items listed on the menu were missed - guess how much luck they had??

I decided to cut my losses and cut their income. I have never visited this place before, and can guarantee I will not be giving them another visit - I would strongly suggest you learn from my experiences and simply do not even go in the place.

One of the worse experiences I have ever had. 30 of us all paid 10 each for a Christmas Buffet. The advance menu promised us prawns, a selection of delicious sandwiches amongst a whole host of other tasy sounding morsels. When we arrived and ordered the first round we were told that there was no ales available and only lagers.. After what felt like a lifetime we eventually got our drinks, seeing there was only 14 others in the pub at the time this was a little annoying. Another guy waiting at the bar for a pint of Guiness said jokingly that this was a great pub to sober up in! So we then all went and sat in the designated area waiting for our delicious buffet to arrive. Some 2 hours later (we were booked in for 3) a few plates of semi warm but very greasy chicken wings came out together with some mini sausage rolls that looked like they had been in the bottom of the freezer since last Christmas, of and some slices of fish fingers around the outside of the plate. In the meantime I had returned to the bar to order another round and was told by Nat that although she could take my drinks order and charge me she was unable to pour any drinks cos the gas is off init. She assured me in her best what I can only assume was Serbo Croat that it would only be a minute or so. I foolishly made a joke about the gas running out (after she had fleeced me for 28 for 6 drinks) and she jumped down my throat with what's your *.*king problem, every pub can run out of gas, if ya don't like go somewhere else! . I did point out to her that had they have had hand drawn real ale on tap like they advertise they wouldnt have needed compressed gas. She told me to get stuffed, I returned to the dining area in shock and by this time the person who had organised the event had already complained to the manager that we had paid out almost 300 and had about 15 of poor quality food in return. The Manager then started coming out with oh we didnt get a confirmation that you were coming and had to russle you up the best we could manage, pity they bothered. My colleage by this time had bitten into one of the chiken legs and it was bloody and cold inthe middle, he rushed into the Gents to be sick and slid on the wet floor banging his head against one of the urinals. It may have been avoided if there was sa light in there, rather than being pitch black. Another of our group went to his assistance and tried to clean the blood of his face to see the extent of his injury only to discover not only was the toilet in darknes with what smelt to be urine on the floor there was no running water either.

Meanwhile some of the group were complainging at the bar about the food, or lack of it and eventually given a 30% refund which frankly was too little too late. The
anager clamed that the type of food we were expecting was never on offer, adly for her though we had the original menu and booking confirmation back at the office. So, we voted with our feet and went along to the Wilton Arms and stayed there until around 11 so the Talbot lost our trade. I guess though a pub like this doesnt care as there are always fresh victims.

Avoid at all costs and in particular don't cross Miss Personality (Nat) she has the bite of a rabid Rotweiller, a traditional London tavern indeed. A pub with no beer, no food and crap service, a recipe for success!

Went to the pub to see theatre but then stayed for a drink afterwards. Usually we scurry away - not the right atmosphere. Now there is a new landlord - an Oz - called Adam. Absolutely charming and we stayed and drank some really nice reasonably priced wine.

Friendly staff, excellent atmosphere, interesting people, nice cold drinks and brilliant dance music. We have enjoyed some good boozy afternoons and evenings here, the latest being on Friday the 22 September 06. Would definitely recommend to others.

 No longer a Public House
I have been eagerly awaiting the r-opening of the Ennismore Arms. As it truly was a fabulous pub. However it would seem it has been converted into a house and is no longer used as a quaint public house. Such a shame. Maybe the new owner may consider opening his house to the public !

 dirty
After visiting this pub on sunday 20/11/05, i was appalled at the state of the place. My partner and i were there for a number of hours, and in which time the glasses were allowed to mount up on the table, ashtrays were over flowing, and when we did get served the glases in which our drinks were served were rotten. We did order food and when it came the plates were dirty, food was cold and we had been given certain food we had asked not to put on the plate. whilst i understand that the bar staff are very busy it does not excuse the fact that this pub has really gone to the dogs, even the ladies toilets stank like mens urinals, the vast number of new managers this pub seems to have in such a short time period seems to be of no help what so ever. Come on whitherspoons give yr staff a good kick up the arse and make them work for their money instead of chatting at the end of the bar

we lived local and only found your post after weed and a bottle of port. We are gutted to hear of the demise of The E as the neons so often told us. The warm lager for all as momento or a bullet wound. SW9 will not be the same it'll be quieter

 Amazing food & service 10/10
Had an wonderful lunch of some of the best gastro pub food ever, together with service that was worthy of a michelin star, together with a wine list of 12 reds & 12 whites - (by the glass!). What a great pub!!

 The food is good.
If Jeremy is the cook make sure you ask for any of his food - he is a trained chef offering food at pub prices. Make sure you take advantage of this!!!
Plus the pub is a pimlico hidden treasure!

 It closed! Has been empty for two years.
Was looking for its address for some reason, your website came up and I noticed you were still mentioning it. Thought I'd spare someone a journey!

 Farewell to the Duke of Cambridge
My father used to manage this pub back in the 1940s and 50s. My grandmother was the licensee. Alas, it has now been flattened and a block of flats stands on the site.

 Great little gastro pub on the egde of Fulham
This is a great pub which serves real food and beer at great prices. Also has an excellent wine list.
Doesn't take bookings so you have to get there early to secure a table.
Worth the visit.

 A great place for a quick pint....(or ten)
Come early as this quiet pub gets full quickly! Splendid ales, good food, fair prices, (as fair as you can get in SW1), and a friendly barstaff and landlord make this gem in Belgravia a wonderful place for a quiet drink. No music, no pretension, no hooligans. Just a nice spot for a pint and sport on the televison.
