Great neighbourhood pub. Friendly and welcoming staff, good wines and beers. Lovely main bar with big windows and comfortable seating. And a stunning Victorian gin palace
I'll always have a soft spot for the Elgin. As my workplace local pub for so many years, I've shared so many laughs, tears and drinks here I've lost count. During the week, it's perfectly positioned to have a laid back beer before catching the tube or heading on to Portobello Road. On Friday and Saturday - it gets BUSY. But spirits are always high at the Elgin, no matter how long you have to queue for the bar.
Friendly bar staff
Great pub food
The Elgin took a very late booking from me for a tribute to my late great-uncle, the puppeteer Frank Mumford, when the venue we had booked had to cancel us the day before. The staff were very helpful, the food was good and the ambience of their elegant back room perfect for our purposes. Would highly recommend this venue.
The Elgin used to be the second dodgiest pub in Ladbroke Grove, but it is now transformed into a lively friendly place with great live music and a fine menu. A newly installed music evenings manager will see things go from strength to strength. The Facebook page updates us all on who's playing when, and invites feedback from customers. I used to give The Elgin a wide berth, but now go there regularly.
