The Curtains Up
A pub with a great vibe and good food, but it has to be Barons Court Theatre downstairs that is its main selling point - I love it here!

The Colton Arms
The Colton Arms is a great pub right next to Queens Club. It has just undergone a major refurbishment and looks so beautiful inside and out. There is a lovely beer garden, a great new chef and a wonderfully friendly team. They also have quiz nights, steak nights, deals on prosecco, brunch and a cracking Sunday roast. I couldn't recommend it more.

About Barons Court
Many people mistakenly believe that name Barons Court is inspired by Earl's Court to the east and the association of the area in the early 19th century with the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach. They had a home at Brandenburg House immediately to the west of the site of Charing Cross Hospital. The name Barons Court is probably inspired by the Baronscourt estate in Ireland, where Sir William Palliser, who built the entire area, had connections. As well as Palliser Road itself, all the roads in the area are named after members of his family. Barons Court is between West Kensington and Hammersmith on the District Line, and between Earl's Court and Hammersmith on the Piccadilly Line.
