The KPH

Located on a prominent corner of Ladbroke Grove and Lancaster Road, The KPH is a local landmark as well as being one of London’s oldest live music venues. We have a ground floor pub and a first-floor dining room. The KPH has been reinvigorated with menus from chef-director Henry Harris, who has appointed Ruairidh Summers as head chef.

We are open till late on the weekend, have a great quiz and live music throughout the week. With leather banquettes, an oak-paneled bar, and the interior designed by Liana Braune (Zaffera London) who also selected the artworks throughout the building, The KPH is a special place to patronise.

History

The KPH was built during the 1860s, catering to Irish labourers who built Notting Hill and thereafter its residents too – the term “hotel” was a common affectation. In 1929 a theatre was opened on the first floor, where Tom Jones sang his first London concert in the 1960s, for a fee of £10.

Serial killer John Christie was a barman at the KPH during the 1940s, and his neighbour Timothy Evans, who hanged for Christie’s crimes, was a regular. The KPH served as the convergence for West Indians, Irish and hippies that defined Portobello Road in the 1960’s ; in the punk era it was the preferred rendezvous of the Clash.

The pub

Our cellar is full to the brim with kegs from Stiegl, The Kernel, Mikkeller & Portbello Brewing. Timothy Taylor Landlord & Harvey’s Sussex Best are our house ales, with guest ales rotating. Henry and the team have compiled a list of wines that they enjoy drinking, balancing familiar Old World names with some new and interesting producers

We’ve a selection of aperitifs and digestifs from Harris Vintners to complement our menu.

If you’re after light food with a drink, our bar menu is ideal
