About the Pub

Description: NOTE CLOSED again - new lessees saying they have been unable to agree terms of a long lease. Sold by Punch in the summer of 2014 to offshore property developer and its future became threatened. Local activists succeeded in getting it listed as an Asset of Community Value. It re-opened in summer 2015. The lease was acquired by Jonathan and Andy Perritt, who run The Stag in Fleet Road and The Mall Tavern in Notting Hill Gate. Typical Charrington re-build pub of the inter-war period. Named after Lord Napier of Magdala. Welcoming, clean, bright pub, dating back to 1885. Famous historic association with Ruth Ellis, last woman hanged in England, for shooting her lover to death outside the pub on Easter Sunday, 1955 (alleged bullet marks on facade are probably not authentic). Furnished inside with wooden tables and chairs in both saloon bar and dining area, although there is quite a contrast between the two, the saloon being heavily wood-panelled. Additional dining room (to let) upstairs. London Overground: Hampstead Heath. Nearest Underground: Belsize Park.
