Pub in Kensington in a building from 1899, that was rebuilt in 1979. The pub belongs to the Greene King chain.
In the first years of Queen’s activity (until 1974), the musicians met in a pub with their friends. When Roger Taylor and Freddie Mercury had stale at Kensington Market, they came here for lunch. Next to the pub is Maria Assumpta Teacher Training College, where the future wives of Brian May and John Deacon were learning. Queen musicians came to the pub on Saturdays or after a concert. Freddie played snooker. Perhaps here, Roger and Freddie paid tribute to Jimi Hendrix on the day he died.
