About the Pub

CLOSED in May 2017 following change of ownership. New freeholder Barts Pubs Ltd submitted planning app PP/17/06797 to refurbish the building and restore the former pub use, as well as undertaking internal works to the upper levels to provide dining facilities and accommodation. As of mid-April 2019 the venue was advertising for staff and is hence expected to reopen in May/June 2019. Previous description follows.

Very close to Ladbroke Grove tube station, the pub was built in the mid-1860s in the "Kensington Italianate" style and still has an attractive Victorian carved timber frontage in polished red granite. Its past history also includes a stint as a barman there by serial killer John Christie of Rillington Place fame!

Known as an Irish pub in earlier decades and the KPH initials are jokingly said to have meant "Keep Paddy Happy". Also said to have been the HQ of those instigating the Notting Hill race riots of 1958.

Historic Interest

This pub was a wartime favourite of Timothy Evans, later wrongly convicted and hanged for the Rillington Place serial murders. This miscarriage of justice was a main factor leading to the abolition of capital punishment.
