Really nice ambiance. Big windows look out on to a fairly busy street. Four casks, none of which were really that interesting on my visit, if you want to know the truth. Just basic bitters and goldens. Average prices. A few decent kegs (Sierra Nevada pale, for example). Really good music, very friendly bartender. It’s not a beer geek’s pub, but it’s a nice place to sit and have a drink.

The Drayton Arms is part of the Capital Pub Company, a group of 10 or so linked upscale pubs in West London owned by Mitchell & Butler (The Windsor Castle in Kensington’s also part of the group). This isn’t your idealized, comfy classic English pub - the decor’s kitschy, the clientele aspirational (we are in South Ken, after all!). Despite this, the beer options are actually OK - 4 interesting cask ales, further options on keg (think ’classily-marketed’ macros like Franziskaner, Kozel, Amstel). The bottle selection is good for the neighborhood (Chimay, Duvel, White Shield, Kriek Boon). The food’s actually decent and pretty well priced. The service is fine. Seating options aplenty. This isn’t a pub that I’d advise you to travel to, but if you’re in the area it’s worth a look. Of course, if you’re thirsty you might as well hop on the tube and head to the White Horse...
