Our story

The Grafton is a proper boozer for the Kentish Town community to call home. The pub has four areas, beginning downstairs with a traditional Victorian pub space wrapped around a huge central horseshoe bar. Climbing the stairs you’ll reach a small ‘Boardroom’ with stylish paneled walls, large central table and comfy seating, which is perfect for meetings and private gatherings. Also on the first floor is a large retro-styled upper bar with beautifully tiled paneling and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Finally an all-weather roof terrace leading from both the Upstairs Bar and Boardroom provides a great space to soak up the sun or shelter from the rain.

The downstairs bar’s beautiful Victorian features were carefully restored in 2012 incorporating some contemporary touches to create a bright and beautiful space. We have 4 hand pumps rotating award-winning ales and ciders, local craft beers on tap and in bottles, a carefully curated wine list from our very own Master of wine, a great range of soft drinks, plus teas and coffees and mini soft drinks for the kids.

The Grafton is conveniently located 500m from Kentish Town Mainline Rail Station and Underground Station and  Kentish Town West Overground Station is a mere 150m away.
