Kenilworth Castle, 104 St Anns Road, Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London W11, 2002 • Unusual post-war council estate pub on the fringes of posh Holland Park. By 2012 it was painted blue and much more shabby, with its red prow fallen off. One disparaging reviewer described it in 2011 as “like something from The Sweeney”. More recently it’s been under new management and getting the thumbs up, albeit still “like going back in time 30-40 years ago”. 2016 update: it’s now a Co-Op.
