Drink at the Colton Arms

A lovely little pub in the backstreets south of Queen's Club and Baron's Court tube station, the Colton Arms dates from mid-19th century, and is noted for its two storey stuccoed front with sash windows an authentic interior fitted out in what we are told is a 1950s 'publican's rustic' style.

The pub seemingly takes its name from George Colton Moore of North End Lane, who built it along with the adjoining terrace. Inside, it is a welcoming affair, far enough from the main roads, offices and parades of shops to retain a true 'backstreet boozer' air, and with not really enough space to get rowdy. Still, it's always been happily ticking over with customers when your author has popped in, and long may it remain so.
