THE STORY OF The Queen's Arms

Dating back to the 1800s, The Queen’s Arms is one of South Kensington’s most established watering holes and a cornerstone of the neighbourhood’s history.  Dog-friendly and enduring popular with local residents, workers and visitors, both its interior and exterior have been lovingly restored, retaining many original features.  

Nestled amongst the area’s tranquil back streets and Georgian architecture, The Queen’s arms combines traditional wood-panelling, period features and contemporary touches, boasting an open fire for those chillier months and space outside for al-fresco drinks on milder days.  Fostering an authentic community atmosphere, this welcoming pub holds the spirit of the great British local close to its heart.

Tucked away on the corner of one of South Kensington’s most picturesque mews, at the very heart of Kensington, the pub’s location offers the perfect spot for relaxation and refreshment after a day out at one of the area’s prestigious museums, a concert at the nearby Royal Albert Hall, or a walk around Kensington Palace Gardens.

Well-connected to the rest of the capital via Gloucester Road tube station and a multitude of bus routes, The Queen’s Arms attracts a diverse clientele and expertly mixes a traditional local feel with a touch of urban refinement.
