Ruby Grand, W6 9JT
- 225-227 King Street
The information below is retained for people who want to know what it was like as the Ruby Grand.
It's divided into a few different areas, with a "morning room" tucked away to the side; a larger drinking space with smart brown leather banquettes, mini armchairs, and a hardwood floor; a dining area further back; and a sunny beer garden with picnic tables, accessed via the dining area. It looks quite smart and nice, though unfortunately on Kake's June 2009 visit the ladies' was in a bit of a state, contrasting strongly with the rest of the pub.
Kake visited on a Wednesday afternoon in June 2009. The only other customers when I arrived were a group of students who seemed to have just finished their A-levels, though a few others arrived while I was there. Music was playing (reggae and some other stuff). A pint of lime and soda was £2, and came with a couple of lime wedges squeezed in. They had Deuchars IPA available on handpump; two other handpumps had turned-around clips for London Pride and Courage Directors.
Accessibility: One step up to get in. Step-free once you're inside, and there's a dedicated accessible toilet. Small ridge to get into the beer garden.
