About us

A Kilburn pub with a passion for proper beer

Just like Kilburn, The Earl Derby is vibrant, diverse and proudly represents its roots. Now a champion of craft ales and great food, our imposing Victorian building has always been a public house - originally named The Earl Derby - and our walls ring with energy from nearby Queen's Park, West Hampstead and Maida Vale. Kilburn's musical heritage is reflected in our weekend DJ sets, live music and weekly quiz, while our relaxed, cosy character gives you a home away from home. Keep an eye on our what's on page for more.

  • Daily changing pub-food menu
  • Tuesday music quiz, 8pm
  • Saturday Brunch - food from 9am
  • Sunday Records & Roasts - food from 11am with Bloody Marys and more tunes
  • Board games, crafts and Lego on the go every weekend
