The Kenton is a handsome Victorian pub not far from Well Street market, just north of Victoria Park. It's one of those pubs that we meant to visit many, many times, but somehow never got round to it. Well, a refurb prompted us to get off our backsides and pop in for a nosey and we're happy to say it was worth the effort. The revamped Kenton may have had a typical noughties pub refurb - dark paint inside and out, mix-and-match furniture, subdued lighting, candles on the tables etc., but it works very nicely here. There are a couple of ales on the hand pumps and a typical, decent selection of beers, wines and spirits. The service is friendly and the music on the PA wide-ranging and eclectic (it suits the relaxed atmosphere of the pub). The Pieminster pies are jolly good and reasonable value at about nine quid plus a traditional Sunday lunch. And if that's not enough, there are also film nights, quizzes and various other entertainments and diversions. It still seems a little quiet here (although it picks up towards the weekend), but we feel the formula here suits the area well and, with a bit of luck and more custom, the Kenton could be a real winner.
