Three Floors full of Pub Style
Since 1632, Grade 2 listed, with 3 floors of pure pub style
Location: 153 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7PA
Description: And so to the south end of Hyde Park...you're sat there with time on your hands and a thirst that needs quenching. You could find a newsagent and obtain a can of pop or you could take in the 'Paxtons Head'...well there's no debate!
This fabulous Victorian pub was built in around 1632 and incorporates three floors of sheer pub bliss. It became the Paxtons Head in the 1850s and is all original oak panels, etched mirrors and glass in the 1st floor bar and of course is Grade 2 listed.
With a dining room, a lounge bar and a basement on offer, this may well be heaven in a glass - in fact you may want to move in - outstanding.
