The Paxtons Head is located alongside the south end of Hyde Park, on the main road towards Kensington. It has original oak panels, etched mirrors and glass in the first floor bar and is grade 2 listed. This is an iconic traditional London pub and is well worth the visit for the atmosphere.

Had the cod and chips, it was ok nothing that blew my mind. There is a tiny bar area with pool table downstairs where the men's bathroom is at.
