Tris C left this review about The Coningham Arms

This is a mid-19th century pub, rebuilt in 1881.
This also must be the bleakest pub in Shepherd’s Bush. It’s definitely not the bleakest in the whole borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, as that title goes to SW6’s Queen Elizabeth, but it’s a close thing. There’s just about nothing in here, apart from some trophies on a ledge spotted afar and a couple of signed framed sports shirts, fixed to plain white walls and white ceiling, with bright lighting. Customers are avowedly Irish, all crammed into a corner, with a few English customers propping up the bar. This is certainly home to an older demographic and an almost exclusively male one, with just two women spotted. Naturally there’s sport, but you’d never know there was so much variety, a veritable cornucopia, with several football matches on show, along with racing of not just horses, but greyhounds too.
Amazingly there was a Doom clip visible, but even if I were inclined to drink the stuff, would I do so in a place with no throughput? No, so I opted for a half of Strongbow, £2.00 cash, with a minimum card payment of £5.00.
Reminding me of a working men’s club, this pub clearly fills a niche and has its devotees; I’ll leave them to it.

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

The facade must have looked quite impressive at one stage, but the cavernous single-room bar now has some pretty basic (almost transport caff) furniture and just a pool table at one end as a feature to note. It appears to be a part-QPR, part-Irish establishment so I guess it gets busy during sporting events. Otherwise, the high ceiling can give the place an empty feel - especially as part of it is mirrored - unless a favoured song gets played (in which case a sing-song seems to be the order of the day). Beer-wise, there are still no handpumps so it is a quick pint of John Smiths Extra Smooth (£3.10) and I was off...
