About us

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.

One of a kind

The Elephant and Castle is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.

Good Nicholson's pub in a quiet location about 5 minutes walk from High Street Kensington tube station. Four cask beers on handpump when I visited. A few tables outside some of them covered.

This was the best Sunday roast that I've had in a long time. The staff was so friendly and the food came out quite fast. It is a small pub so it's best to reserve on a Sunday. The pub is dog friendly and has a couple of tables outside for smokers. It was a very pleasant experience.

Located a few blocks away from the Kensington high Street, this beautiful classical is in a quiet residential neighborhood. So although there is outside seating, there it's no drinking allowed outside after 10pm. It was quite busy when I was there. I did not try any food, but they had a great selection of English and imported draught beers. The staff were very friendly.
