Was a good pub but has now closed. Has been replaced by Prezzo, an Italian restaurant.

The only ale on offer during my visit was Morris Mayhem as the Greene King IPA was off. There was also a standard selection of draught and I found the Aussie barmaid to be very friendly, especially for someone stuck away in this quiet characterless pub.

There are a few plasma screens dotted about that were showing Sky Sports News and there are a couple of tables overlooking the station concourse, but the rest of the pub is just dark and boring.

This place seemed to be a bit of a trek from the station and I think that it would be quicker to cross the road outside and get to a superior place so I won’t be purposely returning.

It's OK for what it is, better than some station bars I can think of, possibly too remote for the usual low life such places attract.

Give this place a very wide berth. Beer was dismal and atmosphere non-existant. Run away and do it quickly. Wetherspoons in the staion isn't much better but go there for a quick one instead of here, if You are waiting for that delayed train.

Not really a pub atmosphere, and 'only' Abbott and Greene King IPA on draft, but it's a convenient location, it's clean, the staff are friendly and there's food on. So 7/10.

Came here with a friend at lunchtime (24 Oct) for a quick drink following my KFC meal in soulless Victoria Place. It was virtually empty and therefore we were rightly served promptly. No pungent smell of booze either like the nearby Duke of York! Important, as I cannot let my new employers think I am an alcoholic with my clothes smelling of booze when I return to the office just jet!

A pint of coke and a Jack Daniels & coke came to £3.95, so make what you want from that about prices if anything. I found this place quite warming and the décor palpably smarter that the Wetherspoons downstairs. Useful also to have a few televisions showing the excellent Sky Sports News as well, especially as the gorgeous Vicky Gomersall was on! I would certainly come here again if in this part of the station at lunchtime.

Lovely pub, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, rarely gets too busy, cosy, wicked food, good selection of drink, bit pricey but this is central London, what do you expect?

I used to go here occasionally when I worked in the area and I never had a problem with it. Its overpriced if I remember rightly, but found it to have a friendly enough atmosphere. In all honesty, the place is nondescript. Admittedly I have a soft spot for the place because I had some god laughs in here and it's like, if your in good company, what does it matter about the pub? However, not everyone has that viewpoint, so I'd have to say there are better pubs in the area, which would be more worthy of a visit. Molly O 'Grady’s is just average.

Full of drunken football 'fans' - horrible beer - terrible atmosphere.

Just AVOID !!!!

Utterly souless. The whole of the mall above Victoria is like a bad nightmare, full of lost souls. with four other bars within the station, there's no need to use it.

got thrown out of this dump before the wimbledon v chelsea '96 Cup quarter-final. haven't been back since.

shocking stuff about the deaf people don't you think?

I think Lydia is ill informed, Molly's has been hosting deaf and dumb evening (once a month) for the last 2 years - yes they do ask for ID but it is only to protect the licence of the business. The BBC were also very happy with filming an evening in here for their SEE HEAR programme. I think you will find that there aren't many pubs in the area that will even accommodate this type of evening.

Its an awful place !! Advertises "great food" but upon entering one saturday afternoon they told me NO FOOD ! Seems to be a bit of a footie place aswell, loads of fat chelsea fans floating around !

I went here but was too drunk to find the door - it is a REAL pub right?

On Friday 1st Feb 2002, deaf people r shocking that they had to show PASSPORT and DRIVING LICENCE to get in! Even I saw an old deaf man who cant get in because he didn't carry any I.D. to proof his age! Oh come on, he is old man mean over 18 years old! Also 2 deaf person pretend that they were hearing people, they got in without I.D. because the bouncers thought they were hearing! DEFFO Deaf Discrimination!

got anything to say about this pub?
