Although this pub is not a listed building, it is recognised by CAMRA as having an historic interior of some regional importance and the description is as follows: “Small two-room pub with two external doors, with external brown glazed tiles on the ground floor. It is a late Victorian three-storey building in a range along Kilburn High Street. It is a former Watneys pub with plenty of inter-war fittings, including an island bar, good quality fielded wooden wall panelling, dimpled leaded glass windows (including a set at the rear of the bar leading to the tiny “beer garden”) and a cast iron fireplace in the left-hand bar. There is a baffle by the right-hand door, but this looks to be a later addition. The two bars are connected at the rear of the servery via an archway of uncertain date. It is possible that the left-hand room was the public bar and the right-hand one the saloon as evidenced by the quality of the fittings in both rooms. There are small tables and seating along the walls. It remains a traditional Irish pub as befits its location in Kilburn.”

This pub’s ‘R’ category is ‘Revived’ because it was closed for some time but reopened in early 2017.

The Sir Colin Campbell featured on the Revivals and Survivals: Daytime Crawl of Willesden Green, Cricklewood, Brondesbury, Kilburn and St John's Wood on 23 February 2019, and features on the The Three Rs - Rebuilt, Revived and Restored: Evening Tour of Kilburn and Hampstead on 8 December 2021.
