Hippo Inns (Ei Group)

About the Pub

Following closure in July 2021 by Hippo Inns due to inability to fully staff post-Covid, the site was taken over by RedCat Pub company, controlled by Rooney Anand ex Greene King, and reopened in early October 2021. At date of observation the venue was not selling real ale but it is understood that a couple of Timothy Taylor beers will be available on handpump at least by end of 2021. Further updates welcome.

Website & other contact details here are INCORRECT pending further survey. Previous description under Hippo management follows.

Today Hippo Inns offer rotating real ales and craft beers, and gastro dining serving a mixture of British classics and modern European dishes. Hippo have done a good job within a limited site: the venue features a small front bar, an outdoor terrace/patio area and an indoor glass conservatory. The back indoor areas are laid for dining. Note the quirky decorative touches such as the Hippo clock with its wagging tail, the stuffed bird cages and the old map on the floor of the WCs.

See pub website for details of various events and offers.

Historic Interest

Close to a bone-yard dating from the great plague and Queens Club tennis complex, the pub was named after its first licensee, George Colton Moore, in 1849. He was formerly a clay-pipe maker and fragments have been found nearby; he moved to Fulham in around 1836 and owned quite a lot of land in the area. He named the pub after his mother, Mary Colton. After his retirement in the early 1870s and death in 1878, the pub was run for some years by his daughter, Matilda Colton Smith. She died in 1912. The pub was then sold and then run by that family until recent times.
