About Goat Tavern


Established in 1679, The Goat is known as the oldest pub in Kensington. Steeped in history and character, the pub dates back over 300 years. Situated overlooking Kensington Palace, the pub's cellars have tunnels which originally lead into its grounds. Although it was originally known as the 'Watney House' it was later renamed the Goat Tavern with a complete reconstruction in 1771 followed by considerable alterations in 1814, with most of these original features still preserved today.As we're also only a ten minute walk away from the Royal Albert Hall it makes us the perfect pub for a drink and food before an amazing show. We’re proud to say our menu is packed with Great British pub food classics, including iconic dishes like our hand-battered fish and chips, pie and mash and succulent burgers. Our drinks include a great range of real ales and an extensive wine list. Our cask ales range has some of the best in British beers, including the new 1730, our very own special pale ale. The team at the Goat look forward to welcoming you soon at this fantastic traditional London pub in Kensington.
