About the Pub

Large pub, rebuilt in 1892 as the Old Plough. The decor has been described as turn-of-the-century working-class grandeur with tall ceilings, mirrors and glass, oak and pillars. There is plenty of religious iconography; appropriate, given the proximity of Kensal Green Cemetery. The cemetery was the first of the great London commercial cemeteries to open, in 1833. Many famous Victorians were buried there and its fame influenced GK Chesterton, whose poem The Rolling English Road ended with the lines "For there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen, Before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green"! Now the eponymous pub has live music nights, cabaret, film nights, and art shows. See their website for the latest Whats On (ticket booking may be necessary). The food menu specialises in home-cooked, locally-sourced dishes. They offer "the best Sunday roast in London" according to The Oldie magazine in 2016. There is a conservatory, and private dining rooms. Note the limited weekday opening hours.
