THE STORY OF The Champion

Once frequented by 1970s rock stars, Queen and The Clash and previously one of London's iconic gay pubs, The Champion is tucked away on a quiet street corner just a stone's throw from Hyde Park, Kensington Palace and the vibrant Portobello markets.

A dog-friendly pub offering a cosy courtyard beer garden in the summer and a welcoming open fire during those chillier months, The Champion's warm hospitality reflects the infectious vibe of the Notting Hill neighbourhood and has the spirit of the authentic British local at its heart.

At the Champion we provide the perfect back drop for any social gathering.  We have a great selection of tasty party packages and buffet menus to suit all occasions. We also have the ‘Mercury Lounge’ which is named after The Champion’s most famous regular – Freddie Mercury – and allegedly the room in which he penned Queen’s famous track, ‘We Are the Champions’, the Mercury Lounge lends itself perfectly to any private function or social gathering.
