  Awful place. Security is non existent and the management have no interest in changing that. Hence the place is full of drunken thugs all looking for a fight.

17/03/2010 Review from visitor anon Overall rating 4/10
  Have alwayloved this pub.Bitterly disapointed that on St.Patricks night the Lack of Irish music was poor. Shame it was chock full of kids. And to accused by the landlord of only coming 'Once a year' seemed to me he can't take criticism.

  The pub used to be good before all the young rif raff came on the scene.Seven Kings high road is a nightmare every weekend because of the clientelle that frequent this pub.Always trouble and blue lights flashing.You should see the high road on a Sunday morning with debris.Its an absolute disgrace.The owner must have some conscience because he sponsors some of the litter bins in the area via redbridge council.

  You haven''t got a clue what you''re talking about re Management and Staff. Take it you''re not a regular and probably someone who James the manager had to throw out for causing trouble OR not being able to handle your beer!! Ummmmmmmm who knows.

  This pub is vastly over rated.There''s a manager in the place called James who in my opinion needs to go and learn some manners.The guy is very rude so much so that some of the bar staff don''t even talk to him.This pub has ruined the Seven Kings area.  
26/02/2007 Review from visitor Suzi Overall rating 9/10
  Traditional ambience for a London Irish pub. Fun place to visit. Amazingly good looking Manager (has a stunner of a girlfriend too !!). Friendly place, good prices and good food.  
23/01/2007 Review from visitor Missy F Overall rating 10/10
  This is the best pub that I have been to in a very long time. Staff are very friendly, especially the handsome manager!! It is a great place to go either during the day to watch sport or in the evening to have a great night out. The restaurant is also lovely - everytime that i''ve been the service and food have been outstanding! Can''t fault it really.

  Just spent a cracking New Year''s Eve at O Grady''s. Top entertainment with genuine Irish company. Great mix of characters and a great boost to the Irish community in Seven Kings. Pleasent and friendly staff. Good quality food at reasonable prices. Well done.

  This is an overrated,overcrowded waste of space. playing on its supposed "irishness" this pub exploits all that is worst about seven kings. sad , lonely , souless people turn up each day to hang with their "mates". gorgeous girls turn to fat blobs within a few months. same music , same people every day. CHEERS it is not!!!!!! about as irish as Timbuktu  
01/05/2006 Review from visitor Angie & Vicki Overall rating 10/10
  This pub is very very friendly. With excellent staff and a good looking manager. lol. the atmosphere is wicked and the entertainment is grand. Its always busy and we have never had a bad night out when we go there which is every week.

  This pub was great. When I went on a Saturday night it became packed quickly, there were a few actual Irish people there so it must be good. They pumped out loud Irish music (maybe that was because I was sat under a speaker). It was just so friendly in there it was just like a pub up North. The staff were fun and the customers were of a wide range, all getting on really well, middle aged people talking to young people - something you don''t see often. There is a small dance floor. There was a quirky man doing some entertainment the night I went. I thought he was rubbish, the others less so. Nice, authentic, great atmosphere
