Bucking Fastard left this review about The Grosvenor

This is a proper pub with a decent exterior,badly let down by very poor ale.The interior is fully carpeted while the left side has a darts board,pool table ,upright piano and a Sky flatscreen,while to the right there is much more seating around a three sided bar,with a side section having a restaurant feel.There are seats outside to the front and a small walled beer garden to the rear.There is a ship theme,with many model ships dotted about.There is also a second upright piano on the right side and live jazz is played occasionally.The muzak was well chosen 80's classics ,and the customer base was local drinkers with a few diners.
As you enter the pub ,it looks like a keg only selection at the bar until you notice three handpumps relagated to one end of the bar,with a further two situated on a different side by a column.Reversed clips dominated and only the ubiquitous and dull Doom Bar was on,clear but with a vinegar tang as I struggled through my half,£2.40.
If only someone here care about serving a decent pint of ale,this pub would then deserve much higher marks,but as it stands defeat has been grasped from the jaws of victory.

One big room split by the bar. Two weak real ales and keg offerings. There was a piano to the right and a TV and pool table to the left.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Grosvenor

Despite its relative proximity to Central London hubs such as Westminster, Victoria and Vauxhall, this attractive building looks and feels like a rather old-fashioned pub in a quiet town many miles further up the Thames. Small front terrace with attractive vegetation around and above. Partially opened-out interior forming a staple-shaped layout offering a range of seating and dining areas. Traditional furniture and decor. Pool table. Patio seating out front. Two fancy modern Greene King IPA dispensers plus Doom Bar and Cornish Coaster (£3.80, a bit cloudy but tasted OK) available from two of three regular handpumps. Mostly a locals pub I guess, but worth a look if visiting the nearby Tate Britain.
