Kentish Town

This pub dates from 1863 according to the mosaic tiling on the floor in one of the entrances. There are still a few original features remaining – the bar counter is definitely original and you can clearly see the division between the old public and saloon bars with the more elaborately decorated counter in the old saloon bar area to the right. Indeed the vestibule leading into the old saloon bar is still in place, with another bit of mosaic tiling on the floor declaring it to be the saloon bar. On the right is a single storey room that’s now used as a dining room, but looks as if it may once have been a billiards room, although there’s now no skylight.

The Oxford has yet to feature on a LPG crawl.
