Masons Arms665 Harrow Road
Although this pub is not a listed building, it has an interior of some regional importance and the description is as follows: “Late Victorian pub retaining some original fittings but all the room divisions have been lost. There is a Victorian bar counter with pilasters but now painted a gastro grey-blue colour. The excellent original bar-back fitting of four bays has colourful glass panels at the top. The top section is carried on columns with decorative capitals. There are four sets of doors into what is now a large single space indicating at least three partitions lost but on the far left a vestibule reaching to the ceiling with some good decorative etched and frosted panels but lots of plain ones. Interestingly there is what looks like an ornate manager's office with bowed frontage and mirrored panels situated on the left-hand-side back wall. Note the broken pediment and the masons symbol at the top which implies it belongs to this pub but would originally have been situated in the servery area so presumably it has been moved.”
There is a grade II-listed water trough outside the pub and the listing description is as follows: “Mid to late C19. Cast iron water trough outside public house, with curved flange.”
The Masons Arms featured on the Rural Rides: Daytime Crawl of Kensal Green, Maida Hill, Maida Vale and St John's Wood in February 2017.
