A round-up of what we think are some of the best pubs & bars in Earls Court.

King’s Head
17 Hogarth Road, SW5 0QT
Website: www.faucetinn.com/the-kings-head
Underground: Earls Court
Tucked away down this little side street (or junction of side streets – you’ll see what I mean) is this very welcoming pub that’s undergone a very nice smartening up (but nothing too pretentious!) in the last few years. There’s a number of fun events (pub quizzes, cocktail nights) on during the week, and they also open early on the weekend for breakfast.

The Pembroke
261 Old Brompton Road, SW5 9JA

Underground: Earls Court or West Brompton
A big, big pub with all sorts of different areas for you to enjoy – from the downstairs with its welcoming central bar, to the airy first floor room which has its own (surprisingly secluded) roof terrace. A very decent food menu accompanies the standard selection of drinks – look out for the tasty sharing platter option.

326 Earl’s Court Road, SW5
Website: www.oneills.co.uk
Underground: Earls Court
This one in Earls Court is one of the chain of Irish pubs, of which there are 102 across the country. There is much debate about theme pubs and some tell you to avoid them at all costs. However, O’Neills is one of the best of the bunch. They sell an amazing range of Irish whiskeys as well as some delicious food. Good for meeting people in the afternoon, as they are not too busy.

Wine Gallery
49 Hollywood Road, SW10
Underground: Earls Court
A friend was extremely impressed with the huge selection of wines sold at unbelievably low prices (starting from under £4, good champagne from under £15). Smart bar with a nice patio outside. Three cheers!
