Elephant & Castle Description

The Elephant and Castle is one of the landmark pubs in Kensington London. You'll find us within walking distance of Kensington Church St, High Street Kensington and Camden Hill Road, and we're well worth the stroll. We are a traditional pub that's built its reputation on serving a fantastic range of the finest real ales. Enjoy your pint in time honoured tradition at the bar, or better still complement it with a bite from our pub food menu.

Our pub is a favourite among journalists and historic front pages adorn some of our walls. The name Elephant and Castle may derive from a connection to Catherine

of Aragon, whose title of 'Infanta de Castille y Aragon' could have been anglicised. Alternatively, it may be linked to the Cutlers' company of the City of London whose emblem is a war elephant with a howdah on its back. more

“Great traditional pub on the back streets of Kensington. Busy on a Thursday night and only £2.60 for a pint of Doom! Can't get much better than that in London these days....”

"I found Majingos again... I used to go here when it was based at South Quay in Canary Wharf and has now relocated to Limehouse E14 in case anyone doesn't know. It was good in the old days and I am pleased..." Which venue is this?


"Very bad experience. Booked a table, before paying making sure that the table will not be moved at some point to make space. Looks like the woman taking bookings called Candice will promise you anything..." Which venue is this?
