See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

23/03/24 - on a visit no cask beer was available - we do not know if this was a one-off or is permanent. Further feedback welcome. 08/04/24 - "Real ale from one of the two handpumps was available today - Purity Mad Goose - and in very good nick."

The venue has been taken on by LOCI Pubs adding to the 3 they already run in North London. Per their website the place opens at 8am but we do not know from when alcohol may be served. The hours we show are taken from their website. The two unused cask beer pumps were serving a beer from Purity and a Seacider Black Cherry in January 2024.

Taken over by new owner/operators in 2020. They said cask beer should now feature, from the owner, "One definitely, 2 during the winter only as it stands. It’s all depends on sales volume of course and spring summer is not the best time for ales. " We have to assume sales volumes were not godd enough?

From Propel - the pub in Harrow Road has been taken over by Jean-Marin Bolot, who has worked in property and hospitality in the UK and France. The kitchen will be led by head chef Marek Rudnik and offer British pub favourites such as slow-roasted shoulder of lamb and Sunday dinners alongside draught beer, spirits, wine and a bar food menu.

Built in 1837, the pub has undergone an extensive refurbishment but retains features such as open fireplaces, stained-glass windows and the original white marble bar, which stretches across several rooms. The 112-cover, ground-floor space consists of a main bar and dining room, a private bar, and a small bar at the rear for events and parties. The garden and summer house will open in the spring, while 15 guest rooms on the upper floors will be available.

Opposite Kensal Green Cemetery.
