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.

We are open till late on the weekend, have a great quiz and live music. 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 humming with kegs of Stiegl, The Kernel, Beavertown & Portbello Brewing among others. 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. We do £1 oysters from 3pm-7pm Monday through Saturday, and a Happy Hour weekdays 5pm -7pm.
