The Black LionOnce a grubby, nicotine-stained, Guinness-soaked boozer, a tidy refit has breathed new life into the attractive Victorian frame we all thought had been abandoned to decay. Kilburn has been jealous of trendy, next-door West Hampstead for sometime but now, finally, it’s has been dosed with an injection of style and this looks to be just the beginning. It sits opposite the renowned Tricycle Cinema. Inside spread out on one of the numerous, large, spacious tables or curl up like a purring pussy in front of the fire in one of the strangely-shaped armchairs. Like most newly renovated pubs in London it’s a ‘gastro’ pub which means they pay a bit more attention to the food. They serve a selection of upgraded traditional standards with a twist.
