One of my favorite pubs in London, it sits close to Notting Hill in Kensington. With real Ales (beer), a fire place and an English traditional style it's very popular all year round. Check out the newspaper articles from the 1940s, the antiques, the books and the people.
Also, half of the Pub is run by a Thai family. The restaurant has a plant ceiling (you have to see it), thousands of butterflies ... oh, and noodles, rice dishes! (book in advance or take away).
