“Open since 1954, the pub has a 114-cover ground floor restaurant, a 132-capacity club, and a 20-seat wine bar, plus two self-contained flats, and office, garden, and extra storage. It has developed a reputation as a host venue for stars including the first UK shows of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Jimi Hendrix, and other more modern acts such as Adele and Ed Sheeran. It also welcomed Rolling Stones bandmembers Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, when they played a “secret” gig together there in 2013. SW5 9JA”

Speakeasy

“This is a unique place that looks like an old speakeasy with a detective theme. There is no sign outside the door, so it may be difficult to find, but that's part of the fun. Don't expect too much of the food, keep in mind that you are there for the unique experience and the cocktails!;)”

Bar
“Tucked away on a quiet residential street behind Notting Hill’s main drag, the Ladbroke Arms feels more like a quaint village pub than a London boozer. You’re likely to find locals here rather than tourists, and on sunny days the flower-filled terrace swarms with regulars drinking a craft ale with their dogs in tow. Behind the bar, there’s a dining room serving gastropub-quality food and brilliant Sunday roasts – and the extensive wine list includes a handful of organic and natural bottles too.”
