††††††††††† I found this to be a good spot to stop in my walk between Stations. They have a nice selection of ale and it is a well-run pub. They always have a clean Gents room.


Churchill Arms (Fuller's) Kensington [75 J1]

119 Kensington Church St W8 at Campden St

Phone 020 7727-4242

Notting Hill Gate Station

This pub is a short walk from the Station but a walk to a fine place to collect your thoughts. One side of the bar has a restaurant, which can get very active at mealtime. On the other side is the out of the way spot with a warm fireplace. You should spot are the portraits of the US Presidents and UK Prime Ministers. They are located on different walls of the pub.


Goat (Scottish-Courage) West Kensington [75 K2]

3a Kensington High Street W8

Phone 020 7937-1213

High Street Kensington Station

High Street can be quite busy during the afternoon and evening rush hour. If you happen to be near here and want to get away from the rat race this is the cubbyhole you want to scurry to. A fine drink will be served and you can enjoy it like a gentleman.

An Off-License at the front of the pub was removed and replaced with tables.Prior to my January 1998 trip.
