Located in West Brompton, within the London Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, within Greater London.

The Opportunity

The Finborough Arms previously traded as a ground floor pub and a basement live music venue as well as a Sports Bar. The pub benefits from sitting below London's leading off-West End Theatre.
