Chalk Farm Tavern

Picture source: T C


The Chalk Farm Tavern was situated at 89 Regents Park Road. Closed for several decades, since about the early 1990s this pub has been home to the famous Greek restaurant, the Lemonia.
On 15th December 1970 the pub was rebranded as Pub Lotus. It included steering wheels as tables, Lotus car photos on the walls and helmets in the Pit Stop Bar. In addition there was also The Lotus 7 Snack Bar, the Europa Lounge (with bucket seats taken from their Europa model) and even their Formula 1 cars in the beer garden (Grandstand patio); motoring celebrities were present at its opening whilst the first pint was pulled by company founder Colin Chapman. After some years, common sense prevailed, the theme was scrapped and the pub renamed Chalk Farm Tavern. It closed around 1990 had become the Lemonia by at least late 1992
