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.

Boasting an open fire and private function room, The Champion’s classic pub interior leads to its best-kept secret, an alluring courtyard beer garden, offering a spot of urban tranquillity in which to take time out and enjoy a glass of something special.

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.
