About the Pub

Built in 1838 and opposite the security-protected road on the northern side of Kensington Gardens, this is the nearest pub to Kensington Palace. In warm weather the front windows are often opened onto the bar room with its mixture dining tables and chairs, and the pub has a light and airy feel. There is reasonable space for vertical drinkers. A plush basement area leads on to a sunken beer garden, with patio heaters lit in cold weather. There are normally four real ales on including three varying guests, plus a good keg range.

Note that this venue has a good food reputation and is a popular pub, particularly on Friday evenings and at weekends, and it may be advisable to book a table in advance.

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.
