The Kenton


The Kenton, a Norwegian run pub located north of Victoria Park, is the perfect setting to enjoy food, drinks and good music by established and amateur DJs.

The bar boasts an eclectic mix of vintage and antique furniture, including a giant Norwegian moosehead (shot in 1972 by the landlord's grandfather no less). A varied drinks menu caters for all tastes and includes thirteen beers and ales on tap as well as a their signature Viking drink – which includes a healthy serving of The Norwegian schnapps “Akkevit”. The knowledgeable and friendly bar staff are on hand to recommend something for all and can even select the best food from street food legends "Yum Bun" to accompany. They also serve an immense Sunday roast.

Great Music is always at the heart of The Kenton with occasional DJs and a cracking jukebox playing everything from 60s rock and Indie to Disco and Electronica. And for all quiz boffs the Kenton hosts regular quiz every Tuesday with a rollover jackpot.

The Kenton also have a lovely beer garden for all you outside drinkers, including a semi inside Wes Anderson themed garden snug which is available for party bookings.
