I see its up for rent (as of September 09).

Seems to be a bit of a money pit - still at least the properties owners are getting rich off the back off all those successive unsuccessful landlords.

HEY ALL I SEE THE OLD PRINCE HAS GONE AND BEEN REPLACED. i USED TO WORK HERE BACK IN 1991 OR SO WHEN BREDA AND THE GANG WERE THERE. iT WAS MAGIC BACK THEN GREAT CRACK LATE NIGHTS. nOT SURE IF ANY REGULARS ARE STILL AROUND. Caroline was a barmaid then with myself and any real regular would remember Ralph the only manager i know that got barred from drinking in his own pub. There use to be polo who looked after the school i could name alot of great guys Ted,Mick*3,ginger,cathy,mark from tyrone.

Flanagan's is back (uder new management) - well it is still to be decided what it will be called - yes another name change - but the grey is going - finally. The inside has been painted as well. And the staff are friendly, you will even get a smile. Food is coming back online, good home cooked meals, reasonably priced. There is live sport and plently of tv's to watch so you won't have to hurt your neck trying to see it. All in all looks like it will be an excellent pub. Great for a quick pint on your way home or an escape for the evening.

Dean Gaffney's favourite colour is grey.

Firstly the beer, food an local patrons seem not to have changed but the exterior has. As Flanagan's the exterior was painted burgandy which was sympathetic with the tudor architecture. With the change in name they've completed an unecessary and poor quality blue-grey paint job, which we thought initially was the undercoat but now appears is going to stay. Otherwise, third change in name within a year and no significant difference to atmosphere, prices, drinks and food on offer.

Now called Gaffney's after it was bought and refurbished by the television actor and Hammersmith lad Dean Gaffney. I can recommend the Magner's.

No real ale Iím afraid, but Fosters, Stella, Amstell, Heineken, Strongbow, John Smiths Smoothflow and of course Guinness are available in this Irish pub. Three screens and the ability to air Sky and Setanta give this pub a sporty feel.

I found the barmaid to be pleasant enough although there were only 4 other people in the whole pub and I still had to stand behind them to order as they never acknowledged my presence.

Apart from the tossers at the bar this seemed to be an OK pub and if I was going past I would visit again.

It's called Flangans now. On the plus side the beer is good and well-priced and it's hard to go wrong with the food, especially the sunday dinners which top anything nearby for value and quality. On the downside the staff could smile a bit more - they all look like they're dreading being sacked for something or another.

Flynns Bar and Diner celebrated 4 years trading in October, it was a mighty birthday party, a gorgeous free buffet was provided, and locals and visitors enjoyed a great night!

Went in here yesterday fairly impressed

Went here on Easter Monday - and they had a barbeque outside. £5 for a plate of tit-bits which I didn't think too much of, but inside was good for the footie - 3 screens, so you could watch Chelsea v Everton regardless where you were sat. Prices are reasonable and there's a good range.

Also, one of the only pubs in H'smith you can take the kids too...

Hard to express how absolutely devastated I am to read the last review.

This was without doubt my favourite pub in all of London. Even worth a £30 taxi fare home when I moved to N.London! The place had a lovely atmosphere and you always felt welcome and cosy. The staff were a team and you could tell that they all got on well. The landlady was phenomenal and really cared about her team and her customers.

This really is a sad sad loss

I'll rate it on what I would have rated it before because I've not experienced it's new state

I wanted to hate this place when I found out it was a chain but it was impossible. I was in there for a bit of an all day Sunday session and it was quality. Incredibly efficient bar staff, really friendly locals of all ages and even the Irish band playing covers were pretty good. Believe me, I have seen hundreds and they are usually terrible and trot out the same old tired numbers, maybe I was lucky on this day. The best thing though in a pub that was rammed with people getting to all stages of drunkenness was that there was no menace whatsoever. Just lots of smiles, lots of dancing and a proper good laugh.

Brilliant pub, only pub in Hammersmith really still frequented by the locals. Makes a nice changed not to be rushed out of the door at 23.05 (unlike most pubs in Hammersmith)

Bad enough when it was the Prince of Wales, this is now yet another pseudo Irish theme pub.
