About the Pub

As at October 2018 the legal situation relating to this site is somewhat complicated. Anyone wanting further information is asked to email

As at Nov. 2017 planning app PP/17/6454 proposes: Refurbishment, reconfiguration and extension of public house, erection of a basement plus three-storey infill to provide a new townhouse plus associated works of demolition, construction and excavation.

The planning app is supported by the Kensington Society.

Built in 1851 as the Crown, which it remained until 1987. In Nov. 2014 Kensington & Chelsea Council issued its first Article 4 direction for a pub to prevent change of use for this venue without needing planning permission. Nominated as an Asset of Community Value by the Norland Conservation Society and added to the Council ACV register on 30 Dec 2014 ref ACV/14/08487 expiring 30 Dec 2019. In Nov 2015 the First Tier Tribunal dismissed a legal challenge that sought to overturn the Council’s decision to register the venue as an ACV. The venue is now mainly food-led but it is possible to get a drink of keg draught beer at the bar.
