About the Pub

Opposite the security-protected road on the northern side of Kensington Gardens, this is the nearest pub to Kensington Palace. Built in 1838, Grade II listed and refurbished in 2004, it was spruced up recently by owners Mitchells & Butlers.

In warm weather the front windows are often opened onto the bar room with its mixture dining tables and chairs, but there is a fair amount of space for vertical drinkers. A plush basement area leads on to a sunken beer garden, with patio heaters lit in cold weather. The pub's website, as well as its Facebook and Twitter pages, lists special events upcoming.

Historic Interest

The pub was frequented in the 1970s by various rock stars and the Mercury Lounge downstairs on the way to the garden is named after Freddie Mercury; it is supposedly where the "We are the Champions" anthem was penned. A copy of the score is on the wall.
