See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Rebuilt in Elizabethan Revival style between 1891-3 this imposing pub is Locally Listed by Brent Council and has a mixed clientèle. It has a bar in front of an open kitchen and various entrances which indicate how, at one time, it would have been divided into several rooms. The Park Parade side entrance includes some impressive tiling including a tiled painting of a Parliamentarian trooper hunting for King Charles II after the Battle of Worcester in 1651 with Charles hiding in an oak tree. In Jan 2016 Urban Pubs & Bars leased the pub investing £300k adding a feature staircase (which leads to a hugely impressive upstairs room and bar) and the open kitchen. Four handpumps, although in October only three were in use.
