Buckingham Palace in London

Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Earl’s Court is a district of Kensington in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in West London, bordering the rail tracks of the West London line and District line that separate it from the ancient borough of Fulham to the west, the sub-districts of South Kensington to the east, Chelsea to the south and Kensington to the northeast. It lent its name to the now defunct eponymous pleasure grounds opened in 1887 followed by the pre–World War II Earls Court Exhibition Centre, as one of the country’s largest indoor arenas and a popular concert venue, until its closure in 2014. “

Pub name Name Address Description
Blackbird 209 Earls Court Road Earls Court SW5 9AN Converted from bank premises in 1993 but perhaps not as grand inside as some other Ale & Pie format bank conversions. Large, bright Fuller’s pub with excellent beer and a large menu that includes speciality pies, sandwiches, sides and sharers. Apart from other meals, breakfast is served from 8am (including Fuller’s own black pudding). There is a dedicated dining space to the rear. After a three month refurbishment in 2018 the pub became one of Fuller’s “boutique bedroom” establishments with 9 rooms for guests. Note that under the terms of the premises licence, alcohol may not be served before 10am. The pub can become very busy on Chelsea match days.
Courtfield 187 Earls Court Road Earls Court SW5 9AN Originally built in 1876 as the Courtfield Hotel, opposite Earls Court Station, this pub has an impressive front bar with tall windows and a high ceiling. Chandeliers and lanterns suspended above the bar add to the period atmosphere. The rear area has attractive wood panelling and relaxing banquettes. Sports matches are shown on screens situated around the pub. Friendly staff provide good service. The food offering includes Sunday roasts and a kids’ menu. Note that the licence does not permit sale of alcohol before 10am Monday to Saturday or before noon on Sunday. Some WhatPub feedbacks have stated that real ale availability can be a bit variable here. Further feedbacks welcome.
Earls Court Tavern 123 Earls Court Road Earls Court SW5 9RL Largish, wood panelled bar with part wood, part carpet flooring. Attractive lanterns over bar add to the general ambience. Food includes sandwiches and toasties plus standard pub grub such as pies and burgers,
Kings Head 17 Hogarth Place Earls Court SW5 0QT Friendly corner establishment, off the busy Earls Court Road, decorated in a modern style. Mainly floored in wood, with tiling around the bar area, the place is furnished with comfortable seating: high stools and tables, dining sets and some settees with low tables. A real fire is often lit in winter and the air conditioning switched on on those hotter summer days. Circa 17th century, this pub is the oldest surviving licensed premises in the area. Rebuilt in 1937, the building is stated by the local authority to contribute to the village atmosphere and to make a significant contribution to the character and appearance of the conservation area. It was bought by Fuller’s from Faucet Inns in late April 2015 Of note are the unusual “postage-stamp” pub swing-signs, based on coinage designs of George V by Bertram Mackennel. Unlike the coins and stamps, the signs show His Majesty facing in both directions! The 1972 film, “The Adventures of Barry McKenzie” used the pub and the neighbouring “Kangaroo Valley” as locations. The kitchen remains open for dinner until late evening and Wednesdays are “Craft Beer and Wings Nights”. Three Fuller’s cask ales are joined by a guest, often from another local brewery.
Pembroke 261 Old Brompton Road Earls Court SW5 9JA Built in 1866 by J Beale, on the ground floor is an almost-island bar, whilst upstairs is a lounge bar with chesterfield-type sofas and an 8ft projector screen for cinema events. There is also a roof garden for when the sun shines. This is a Chelsea supporter-friendly pub for home games. The pub hosts pop-up kitchens. Note restricted opening hours.
Prince of Teck 161 Earls Court Road Earls Court SW5 9RQ Large, busy, sports-oriented corner pub with bars on two floors, which used to have a rough house reputation in the old Kangaroo Valley days, but is quieter now (except for days of Australian celebration). The food menu includes lunchtime wraps and subs, and the main menu includes Sunday roasts.
