Pubs

As Londoners, we cherish our local pubs. Notting Hill has some great go-to spots. From smaller, more family run chains to larger pubs like WeatherSpoons, there is a pub for everyone in the area.

Pub name Name Address Description
Bayswater Arms 99 Queensway Bayswater W2 4QH Bayswater is a corruption of Bayard’s Watering, the chief spring of the district situated near Queensway and from which in 1439 a conduit was built to supply the City of London with water. Now the eponymous pub is an air-conditioned haven from the bustle of Queensway. Faux Victorian interior, with dark wall coverings sporting framed photographs of local Edwardian street scenes and the area’s well-known former residents, contrasts with the 60s block in which this pub occupies the corner. Plenty of tables on a mixture of carpeted and painted wooden floors and a menu of pub-grub food attract in tourists and other passing trade as well as the regulars. Note that the licence does not allow sale of alcohol before 10am Monday to Saturday or noon on Sunday.
Champion 1 Wellington Terrace Bayswater W2 4LW Built in 1838 and opposite the security-protected road on the northern side of Kensington Gardens, this is the nearest pub to Kensington Palace. 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 reasonable space for vertical drinkers. A plush basement area leads on to a sunken beer garden, with patio heaters lit in cold weather. Three ale handpumps but often now only one ale available, likely to be London Pride. Note that this venue has a good food reputation and is a popular pub, particularly on Friday evenings and at weekends, and it may be advisable to book a table in advance.
Cow 89 Westbourne Park Rd Bayswater W2 5QH Built in 1858 as the Railway Tavern, which it remained until 1992. Possibly re-named after the drovers who used to take their cattle on the hoof to Smithfield Market. The pub is owned by the Conran family and is famous for its house-speciality oysters and seafood menu generally. There is an unpretentious smallish ground-floor bar with a good real ale reputation; and a first floor restaurant serving an excellent fish stew. Food times given are for the saloon bar; restaurant hours are different, see venue website.
Kings Head 33 Moscow Road Bayswater W2 4AH First licensed in 1822 and rebuilt in 1926. Traditional community pub, hosting regular theme nights and charity events. Wooden beams and panelling create a comfortable and spacious feel. This is somewhere to wind down after shopping in busy, cosmopolitan Queensway. There is a good range of foreign beers on offer and branded glasses are used whenever possible. Three real ales are usually on, and another handpump may be used for cider. Meals are served throughout the day.
Leinster Arms 17 Leinster Terrace Bayswater W2 3EU Grade II listed pub built in 1856 as the Scotch Stores and renamed 18 years later. The facade is impressive, with the pub’s name extending across the arch to the adjacent mews. Inside there is a fascinating collection of prints, portraits and paintings. The rear area has a notable brewery mirror. The beer range features a changing guest ale – beer mats and pump clips on display are evidence of previous brews. Five handpumps but not all ales may be available depending on demand. There is a wide food offering including lunchtime sandwiches, pub favourites, afternoon tea, and a dog menu! A vintage car club meets here every month. Popular with tourists. If you are in this category you may qualify for a “Regulars and Locals Loyalty Card” here.
Phoenix 51 Moscow Road Bayswater W2 4AL Deservedly popular, comfortable, upmarket pub serving the well-heeled locals as well as the visitors who choose to venture the short distance off Queensway. A variety of seating, floor coverings and degree of modernisation lend character to each the three distinct areas of the bar. Guest ales may also be available and are chosen very much in accordance with the demands of the regulars.
Prince Alfred 112 Queensway Bayswater W2 3RR Light and airy open plan bar refurbished in 1999. The first floor bar can be used for functions and there is an outside seating area from which cosmopolitan Bayswater can be observed. The building dates from 1852 and was named after Queen Victoria’s second son. Live music Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights. Two handpumps, one being used by Thatcher’s Sam’s Cider in Aug 23.
Prince Bonaparte 80 Chepstow Road Bayswater W2 5BE Large gastropub with a U-shaped counter and open plan kitchen, with varied seating and in an Art-Deco style. The rear area features separate dining-tables. The modern menu uses seasonal ingredients and includes Sunday roasts. It was reported in early 2023 and again in August 2023 that only one cask ale was available. Clientele is mainly young and upmarket and often with a French contingent. Built in 1850, it was formerly the Artesian, truly a well-named pub.
Prince Edward 73 Princes Square Bayswater W2 4NY Built in 1858 as the Princes Hotel on the corner of a leafy Victorian square. The Prince Edward now has a smartly furnished lounge with some comfortable leather armchairs, plenty of tables and chairs and a central island bar. Many interesting 19th-century photos of London and old prints, etched glass mirrors and coloured glass panels adorn the interior. A wide food menu is offered including breakfasts, a kid’s menu, bar snacks, sandwiches, and pub favourites. Note that alcohol is not available before noon on Sundays.
Princess Royal 47 Hereford Road Bayswater W2 5AH Following a period as Pomona’s, this site reopened in March 2022 with its original name, the Princess Royal. The present incarnation, as part of the small Cubitt House chain of London pubs, is very much food, wine and cocktail focussed, but with a range of keg beers and three real ales. The refurbishment during the prior closure included some restoration of original features, including the exposure of the pub name mosaic in the entrance porch. The premises are now expensively furnished and offer elegant and comfortable facilities inside and outside for drinkers and diners alike. Upholstered stools flank the solid wooden horse-shoe bar with original tiles and polished timber flooring, red arm chairs fill the window and variously-sized tables are close by, affording ample space for drinkers inside or outside the pleasant front terrace. Bar or table service is provided by charming and helpful uniformed staff.
Westbourne 101 Westbourne Park Villas Bayswater W2 5ED 1852 building with modern basic furnishing and decor featuring wooden tables and chairs and exposed floorboards. French window type frontage. Now a popular food-oriented gastropub with daily changing menus. Traditional bar snacks and daily tapas are also offered. Supper club special on Monday nights. The Westbourne is close to the end and judging point of the route of the Notting Hill Carnival.
Bridge House 13 Westbourne Terrace Road Maida Vale W2 6NG Dating from 1848, the Bridge House as its name implies is adjacent to a bridge, the Horse Bridge, over the Grand Union Canal (Paddington Arm) at its junction with the Regents Canal at Little Venice. The Bridge House is an appealing mix of old-style pub – a good solid bar counter, wooden floor and paneling, and old mirrors (Bass, and note H D Rawlings High Class Mineral Waters ‘as served to His Majesty the King’ above the fire place) – and modern. There’s a chandelier in the front bay window, grey painted walls above a dark painted rail, high tables and chairs, low easy chairs, as well as more normal tables and chairs, and fairy lights around the back bar together with somewhat oddly red pendant lights above the counter. There’s an extensive food menu for lunch and dinner. The craft beer selection varies regularly both on tap and bottled. There are occasional brewery residencies. While it’s not over intrusive there is background music and it can be turned up into the evening. And don’t forget the Canal Cafe Theatre, a separate operation above the pub: http://www.canalcafetheatre.com/
