Historic Notting Hill pub takes new approach

The KPH pub in Notting Hill is to reopen as The Knight of Notting Hill.

The KPH pub in Notting Hill is to reopen as The Knight of Notting Hill, under the stewardship of independent operator Zora Singh.

Having been saved from re-purposing in 2017, when Henry Harris and James McCulloch's Harcourt Inns bought the venue, the renowned pub reopened in 2019 after a investment of over £1m. 

The 157-year-old Victorian pub, sat on the corner of Ladbroke Grove and Lancaster Road, has played host to musical acts from Tom Jones, who played his fist gig there in 1960, to The Clash, Phil Lynott and Paul Weller.

In what is Singh's second London pub project, The Knight of Notting Hill will continue to offer live music, alongside its main focus of food, cocktails, craft beer and wine. 

Singh plans to create a group of freehold pubs in London, each designed to suit the unique needs of the neighbourhoods they serve. His debut site was Three Falcons in St John’s Wood.

Food and drink

The Knight of Notting Hill will serve a menu of dishes designed to appeal to the eclectic mix of locals and tourists. The menu includes garlic Madagascan prawn with sourdough £18; pork belly tacos with piquillo pepper and homemade ketchup £16; Old Delhi butter chicken with butter paratha £17; and pappardelle with blue cheese and crispy sage £14.40.

Cocktails include a house signature The Knight, made of tequila, lime juice and Cointreau, and a selection of classics, including Cosmopolitans, Negronis and Old Fashioneds.
