See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Opposite the security-protected road on the northern side of Kensington Gardens, this is the nearest pub to Kensington Palace. Built in 1838, 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, and the pub has a light and airy feel. 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. There are normally four real ales on including three varying guests, plus a good keg range.
The pub's website, as well as its Facebook and Twitter pages, lists special events upcoming.
