Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Kilburn is an area of north west London, England, which spans the boundary of three London Boroughs: Camden to the east, City of Westminster, and Brent to the west. There is also an area in the City of Westminster known locally as “Mozart” that along with Queens Park and Kensal Green are known as West Kilburn, which sometimes is treated as a distinct locality.

Are there any good pubs in Kilburn?

As Londoners, we love our local pubs. Kilburn has great ones to become your new regular spot. Consider these if visiting or moving to the area of Kilburn.

Pub name Name Address Description
Carlton Tavern 33 Carlton Vale Kilburn NW6 5EU A site now nationally-famous to CAMRA members; after being illegally demolished the developer was forced by Westminster Council to rebuild this pub brick by brick. (For the old pub see the WhatPub entry under “Carlton Tavern, demolished”.) The architect was Francis J. Potter, working from original plans.
Coopers Arms 164 Kilburn High Road Kilburn NW6 4JD A very traditional pub reflecting the strong Irish community in Kilburn. Some nice old etched windows with Charrington insignia, hanging flower baskets and a horseshoe bar. Up to the pandemic it had offered one cask beer, then after a period without cask that one beer on tap has returned so there must now be the trade to sustain one pump. Still odd that their website shows an array of three handpumps and a picture of a pub in the About Us section which is NOT The Coopers.
Queens Arms 1 Kilburn High Road Kilburn NW6 5SE A traditional, large corner pub with multiple drinking areas including an old public bar and a large front terrace. The main room is essentially one large bar wrapped around the bar and leading to a separate restaurant which can double as a function room. The other is a sports bar.
Alliance 40 Mill Lane London NW6 1NR The pub closed on Sunday 30/01/22 and the then current landlord left. The owners of the Clifton St Johns Wood and Duke of Hamilton, Hampstead have signed a lease, and the pub is now trading again after a nice refurb. Currently two rotating cask beers with a large selection of keg beers inclduing London brewers such as Two Tribes, Hackney, Hammerton.
Black Lion 295 West End Lane London NW6 1RD Dec 2022 beers from Hackney and Taylor’s were available – we are led to understand that the pub has considerable latitude in the cask beers it can stock.
Black Lion 274 Kilburn High Road London NW6 2BY 29 Dec 2023 – what we had listed as regular beers such as Five Points seem no longer to be regulars – the beers on were Titanic Plum Porter, Wye Valley Butty Bach and a beer from By The Horns.
North London Tavern 375 Kilburn High Road London NW6 7QB The pub underwent a refurb in the summer of 2023 but the general consensus talking to customers was that it has not been a refurb for the better. Here is one comment, “Latest refreshment sadly did away with most of the settee booth style seating replacing it with high tables and stools. Spolis the atmosphere” See what you think. Note – cash no longer accepted, payment by card only.
Old Bell 38 Kilburn High Road London NW6 5UA Underwent a make-over a few years ago with new carpets and furniture. A very large pub with sports screens, some booths and a marvelous old pub mirror. Could be described as a remnant of old Kilburn which may be slowly fading away.
Priory Tavern 250 Belsize Road London NW6 4BT Reverted to tenanted by end of 2023.
Railway 100 West End Lane London NW6 2LU On a visit in Feb 2002, two cask beers – the ubiquitous GK IPA and a house beer which we believe to be Sambrook’s Junction, the pumpclip makes it clear that the beer is brewed by them. The ciders from Lilleys are no longer considered by CAMRA to be “real ciders”.
