Kings Arms

2 Shepherd Market, Mayfair, London, W1J 7QA

Kings Arms is a traditional British pub in Mayfair serving great cask ales and freshly cooked traditional pub food.

Established in 1878, this charismatic pub sits in a charming little part of Mayfair. It was formerly known as the Jolly Butcher. In 1660, the site was sold to Edward Sheppard from Nithanual Curson for the sum of £8.

The King’s Arms pub sign would not have be used in the Common Wealth, but instead is used as proud declaration of loyalty to monarch since the ‘Restoration’. The Restoration of the English monarchy began in 1660 when the English, Scottish and Irish monarchies were all restored under Charles II after the Interregnum that followed the Wars of the Three Kingdoms.

In more recent times, there are over 50 pubs in London alone whom share its name. This Kings Arms is not one to miss though, as it has been frequented by royalty, as well as celebrity royalty, with the likes of Johnny Depp and rock stars Arctic Monkeys known to have enjoyed a drink within its walls.

  • About the Kings Arms

    A proper old time pub in a charming little part of Mayfair. The Kings Arms was formerly known as the Jolly Butcher and is a lovely little pub tucked away in the heart of London. Entering from Curzon Street is like entering Diagon Alley in Harry Potter - you pass through a narrow little passage and a whole neighbourhood opens up with restaurants, shops and proper pubs like the Kings Arms. The Kings Arms also shows all major sports and serves a delicious Sunday Roast at our hot counter.

    As a Taylor Walker pub, we are proud to offer freshly prepared British pub food and high quality drinks. With experienced and friendly staff, whether you are a cask ale fan, love a chilled glass of white wine or a freshly ground cup of coffee, we will serve you in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

    Join us for a classic British dish such as hand battered cod, chips and mushy or garden peas, a juicy rump steak burger and chips or a classic British roast seven days a week. Our pub food is freshly prepared and includes all your favourites. We also offer a range of sandwiches and wraps, all served by our welcoming and friendly team.

    The pub is spread over two floors with a bar on each. Solid dark beams hold up the ceiling with rippling plastered walls and a row of windows that look down into the square below.
