About the Pub

Built in 1896 and designed by Thorpe and Furniss of nearby Camden, the building is a striking landmark in Kentish Town (Grade II listed) with a large and prominent French chateau style tower adding to its status. Inside, the bar cabinet work, etched glass and bar-back, wall mirrors and ceiling are all of exceptional character and design. There is a fine skylight in the former billiard room at the back. The interior is exceptionally large, naturally lit by huge clear picture windows, opened out in recent years and is served by a very large single bar which extends from the front room, round the side and into the back room. A CAMRA Heritage Pub. The toilets, accessible from the back room, are downstairs, with a disabled facility on the ground floor.
