The Goat pub is a traditional British London pub in Kensington serving great freshly cooked traditional pub food. We also serve a fantastic range of beers from around the world, warming red and crisp white wines and a fantastic selection of spirits.

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.
