Pub SignMan left this review about The Leinster Arms

This is a nice, cosy pub with front and rear rooms, located on the Northern side of Hyde Park. The front part of the pub comprises a mid-sized space with high stools and tables down one side and standard tables and chairs filling the rest of the room. There are some impressive leaded windows around the entrance, whilst an etched pane to one side has the pub’s name picked out on it. The room has been decorated with a variety of old photographs, but there was so much St Patrick’s day tat littering the room, that it was tricky to get a handle on exactly what the place looks like. The servery is located to the rear of the room and forms a C-shape with a dark wood counter, traditional bar back and a pleasant gantry decorated with bottles, whiskey boxes and the like. A TV screen was showing a muted football fixture and pop music was playing at a tolerable level in the background. Passing the right-hand side of the bar, you move into a smaller rear lounge with nice dark wood flooring, some fancy patterned wallpaper and some comfy banquette and chair seating options. The décor here was a little easier to pick out, with a large plain mirror, some London themed paintings, grand chandeliers and a couple more TV screens all catching the eye. A stack of board games was available in one corner and each table had a vase of fresh flowers on it, which was quite a nice touch.
The pub has made it into recent editions of the Good Beer Guide but has what might be described as an unimaginative ale range, with options on this visit comprising Fullers London Pride, Black Sheep Bitter, Sharps Doom Bar and Taylor Landlord. The latter was £4.80 a pint and in excellent shape, served to me a a friendly, chatty barman. Whilst the pub doesn’t have a particularly foodie feel to it, I was surprised to find I was one of a small minority of customers visiting just for a drink.
I quite liked the feel of this pub, which seemed comfortable, with a nice traditional look and layout, friendly service and some excellently conditioned beer. Perhaps a couple of more interesting ales wouldn’t go amiss and the Paddy’s Day marketing guff could be toned down, but otherwise, this is a good solid pub and worth seeking out if you’re in the area.

All a bit average and overpriced. Its small and foody and despite being in the Good Beer Guide has average beer quality

Well described by others below, there is a good local feel to this above-average Stonehouse pub. The staff were chatty and helpful, the locals were tolerant. Ales on were Doombar, Tribute and Landlord, all in good condition. Food was less inspiring – a few pub standards, many of which were off, and a few novelty items, none of them freshly cooked. The ambience and the beer make it a good place to drop in or spend an evening if you happen to be in the area.
