The Knight of Notting Hill opens in Ladbroke Grove

The Knight of Notting Hill, a brand-new free house gastropub pub with sumptuous interiors and serving an eclectic mix of good pub food, cocktails, craft beers, wine & live music opens late September on Ladbroke Grove.

Food & Drink

The Knight of Notting Hill will serve a well-executed menu of dishes designed to appeal to the eclectic mix of locals and tourists. The menu includes the likes of Garlic Madagascan Prawn with sourdough £18, pork belly tacos with piquillo pepper and homemade ketchup £16, Old Delhi Butter Chicken with Butter Paratha £17, Pappardelle with Blue Cheese and Crispy Sage £14.40 as well as spotted dick and custard, Tiramisu £ to be confirmed. Cocktails include a house signature, The Knight: tequila, lime juice and Cointreau and a selection of immaculately presented classics from a Cosmopolitan to Negroni, Old Fashioned to name a few.


A harmonious balance of the venue’s original Victorian features from neo-classical columns, stained wood, tiled floors around the bar, etched glass windows which wrap around the corner of Ladbroke Grove and Lancaster Road and an imposing mirrored bar are paired with comfortable new interiors including banquette seating, marble-topped tables, modern chandeliers and a top-notch sound system for live music events.

A New Era for One of the Capital’s Most Storied Music Pubs

The opening ushers in a new era for one of London’s most storied pubs. Previously known as The KPH, this 157-year-old imposing Victorian pub gracing the corner of Ladbroke Grove and Lancaster Road, has played host to an illustrious lineup of musical acts from Tom Jones, who played his fist gig here in 1960, to The Clash, Phil Lynott and Paul Weller to name a few.


Live Music Heritage

Wishing to honour the venue’s rich heritage which was declared an ‘asset of community value’ by Kensington & Chelsea Council in 2014, the venue will rekindle the pub’s tradition as a live music venue with events featuring rappers, singers and DJs while making the most of the late-night license until 1am.

A renaming of the venue marks a new beginning for the future of this much-loved local establishment following a decade of change and insecurity under a series of different owners.

The Knight is owner Zora Singh’s second free house pub venture to open in two years in what he plans to be a growing group of free house pubs, each designed to suit the unique needs of the neighbourhoods they serve. The first, 3 Falcons St John’s Wood recently received a rave review by Giles Coren.
