Graham Coombs left this review about Gloucester Arms

A proper pub on a corner, with one large room in traditional style retaining a few original features but in the typical Greene King mixture of ceramics and grey panelling. A fair range of beers though, with Sambrook's Pale, Twickenham Smilers Ale & Naked Ladies, and Portobello Star joining the IPA and London's Glory.

It's now received a Greene King rebranding, which sadly hasn't really improved matters. There are even more tables where you are perched four foot up in the air - the few usable height ones are at the back - service is with a smile, it says here, and the beer range is as uninspiring - a couple of GK regulars and an example from Sambrooks which was in such poor shape that they'd cancel their supply contract with GK if they caught them in the act.

July 2010

Almost indistinguishable from the Stanhope down the road this is a bog standard Punch "City Metro" format pub. It spent a couple of years in recent times as a Finnegan's Wake fake Irish bar but they got over that fad and it has since reverted to an average London boozer. Its main function nowadays to to provide the vast number of package tourists who stay in the many local hotels with the Genuine Olde English Pub Experience which I guess it does, sort of. Lots of wood panelling, far too much furniture to eat Traditional English Fish And Chips from and some of those horrid high tables, but decidedly pubby, no attempts at gastrification here.

Usual Punch suspects on the handpumps, Pride, Young's Ordinary, St Austell.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Gloucester Arms

Standard-issue Taylor Walker outlet in terms of appearance, with the usual traditional-looking furniture and decor. The bar is irregular in shape, with one of the seating areas located up a couple of steps. Only three handpumps, and one of these was off to just leave Pride and Bombardier (£3.95). With its limited beer choice, this is one of the chain's poorer outlets.
