Kenilworth Castle

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.

  1. I haven’t seen this building before. The tower bit on the end is quite strange for a pub. When I first saw the photo, I thought it was a tube station. I’ll be paying this pub a visit.

    • How bizarre, don’t know how I ended up linking to a google map of West Australian wineries – visiting which would be somewhat different experience to the Kenilworth! Anyway the link is now corrected. I wonder if Google have been moving their Street Views around? I’m sure I linked to a view in St Anns Road but now you can’t get down it, so the view is from the corner.
