We are reopening on April 12th!

We can't wait to welcome you back to The Paxton on Monday April 12th for outdoor dining and drinking! We have a fantastic programme of cultural events planned too!

Our outside space is fully covered with individual heaters under each table. 

Notice policy update 12 April 2021 


Due to the large demand for outdoor tables, all bookings for the next 4 weeks are for a duration of 2 hours. We will try to accommodate requests for extensions but this cannot be guaranteed. 


The Paxton redefines what a pub should be, it’s going to change the way you live, work and play.

Brought to you by the Queens House group, our ethos is; be creative, be authentic, be positive and be friendly. We welcome you with open arms to come and enjoy our selection of food, carefully curated selection of craft beers and drinks and experience events in uniquely designed spaces. Come and join our community. 


As of now, we are serving takeaway only, but we have started taking bookings for when we are allowed to re-open fully and welcome you all back.


Welcome to The Paxton, the beating heart of Gipsy Hill. We have taken over this quintessential Victorian public house and are transforming it into a Queen's House venue - a cultural hub for the whole community to enjoy. 

Our carefully curated spaces will evoke senses you never knew you had. We want to steal your heart and nourish your mind as we welcome you with open arms to come and enjoy our original event programming and our delicious food and drinks in your new home from home.

Explore our selection of foods from around the world and wash it down with our one-of-a-kind selection of craft beers or wines of origin from hand-picked vineyards as you enjoy our events and lay down your roots in our community.

Oh, and did we mention we host great parties too? Our late license and unique energy flows through to amazing nights of music to dance to with incredible people.

We want the Queen’s House experience to be accessible to all in the local community, that’s why our special offers are designed to be fun and value for money for all to enjoy.



Some pubs have vegan choices, we have a full vegan menu. Take your pick from a variety of seasonal, plant-based dishes including our famous Chickpea Burger and Queens house superfood salad.

INSIDE OUT @ The Paxton 

We go out to go in, into pubs, restaurants, clubs, friends’ houses. We can meet now outside - at The Paxton you will be coming in to go out, out into the garden. 


During the pandemic art has existed mostly digitally and virtually, interior and exterior have sometimes coalesced in the worlds created on our screens. In my studio I have recently been experimenting with making this virtual world more physical without the use of holographic or VR technology.


Phil studied architecture, fine art and history of art in Oxford and Reading. Based in Brixton, London, his studio practice has been mostly painting. In the last few years he has translated this into installation and light projection in London and international locations.



It’s remote working only better


Settle down in a space designed to inspire both creativity and productivity. Sign up and enjoy a special offer which includes bottomless coffee, a tasty lunch, and why not finish the day off (or start the evening) with a cocktail on us!


We work hard and we play even harder. Join us for original curated events and one of a kind parties - paired with great food, outstanding drinks and music you’ll want to dance to. 

With our late licence and wide array of special events, lose yourself at this beating heart of the local community.


Green Plant

A Paxton legend, this vast space is transformed into a botanical beauty with atmospheric lighting, tree installations and much more for your pleasure. Relax, sit back, and enjoy the garden in all its glory.
